The first very cool piece of promo art for director Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok has made its way online, featuring the God of Thunder and the Green Goliath fighting side by side.

As we all know, Thor’s third solo movie will loosely adapt Marvel Comics’ super popular 2006 Planet Hulk storyline where Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor will have to fight in the Grandmaster’s (Jeff Goldblum) gladiatorial arena.

The promo art below shows the Jade Giant wearing the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of the character’s Planet Hulk gladiator armor, which looks pretty close to what the Hulk sports in the pages of the comic. As for the Son of Odin, Thor isn’t seen wielding Mjolnir but rather two mean-looking swords. He’s also back to wearing a re-designed, rad-looking helmet. Check out the promo art below in all its colorful glory, and let us know what you think.

Thor: Ragnarok also stars Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, Anthony Hopkins, Tessa Thompson and Sam Neill. The movie is slated to open in movie theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.
