Thor: Ragnarok is the next superhero movie on the calendar and Empire is ready to take fans to Hel and back. The cover story of their next issue will be an eight-page set report from the film and they’re getting their readers primed for it with a look at the exclusive subscriber cover. Thor have top billing in the movie, but Hela is the star of this cover.
Hela, who is played by Cate Blanchett, was designed for film by Marvel Studios Visual Development Supervisor Andy Park. That design, headdress and all, has quickly become one of the most popular elements from the film. It is beautifully captured on this cover, which was drawn by Marvel artist Russell Dauterman.
Empire will likely reveal the standard cover sometime soon, so stay tuned.
Thor: Ragnarok is in theaters November 3.
