Here's a fresh batch of concept art from director Taika Waititi's (What We Do in the Shadows) upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, giving us our first "full frontal" (you know what I mean) look at Cate Blanchett's villain, Hela.

The awesome artwork was included in Doctor Strange's Digital HD release available worldwide today (the movie will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on Feb. 28) and offers a sneak peek at what we'll get to see when the God of Thunder’s third solo outing opens on the big screen in November.

Not only do we get to see Hela in all her otherworldly glory with a stunning costume design that sticks pretty closely to the character's iconic comic book outfit (also, it looks like the Asgardian goddess of death, ruler of Hel and Niffleheim, will pop up for a visit on Earth), but the artwork also teases the epic gladiator match between Mark Ruffalo's Hulk and Chris Hemsworth's Thor as the Jade Giant and the Son of Odin will be forced to fight in the Grandmaster's (Jeff Goldblum) gladiatorial arena. Can't wait to see that!

In Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok -- the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization -- at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger: the Incredible Hulk!

Thor: Ragnarok also stars Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, Anthony Hopkins, Tessa Thompson and Sam Neill and will open on Nov. 3. Have a look at the concept art below and let us know what you think.
