Get ready for the new daily show

Em, ok, can we say that the new Thor: Ragnarok posters look a lot like the Batman V Superman ones?

Ah man, you know when you’re writing something and you just KNOW that, given the rivalry between Marvel and DC fans, it’s going to put noses out of joint?

Yeah, that.

So today we got two new posters for Thor: Ragnarok and, in fairness, they are pretty cool. However, fans of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice might notice something familiar about them.

So the posters (for Thor) are focused on the battle we’re all giddy to see between Thor and Hulk and each poster shows the heroes squaring up to each other from the opponent’s point of view and, well, take a look yourself.

Let’s not say they’re ripping them off, let’s say it’s a fun nod, ok? After all, two of the studios’ main guys showed us how it was done a couple of weeks back (here).

Anyway, here’s the posters for both movies for comparison.

Thor: Ragnarok is in cinemas on the 3rd of November 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
