God of War Ragnarok’s Ryan Hurst, the actor playing antagonist Thor, shares photos from a recent visit to the Santa Monica studio.
God of the war hid a low-key post-credits scene in a sentimental, optional endeavor. If players return to Kratos and Atreus at the start of God of the war after traveling to Jotunheim to scatter Faye’s ashes, they will see a tease for one of God of War RagnarokThe main antagonists of: Thor.
Thor’s reveal indeed came as a surprise for players to already take a peek, and precipitated the events that could unfold in God of the waris next. Thor’s role in God of War Ragnarok has yet to be fully determined, but his unorthodox way of revealing has continued thereafter. God of War Ragnarok‘s Thor is played by Ryan Hurst, who fans might know from roles such as Gerry Bertier in Remember the titans“Opie” Winston in Sons of Anarchyand Beta in The Walking Dead. Recently, Hurst shared photos from his visit to a particular studio.
Hurst shared photos commemorating his return to the Santa Monica studio in Santa Monica, Calif. Hurst does not explain what exactly the nature of his visit was, but the photos he took represent his enthusiasm and pride for his role in God of War Ragnarok However. The first photo of Hurst shows him happily pressed against a huge studio logo for Santa Monica Studio, while the second photo shows Hurst posing in front of a logo banner for God of War Ragnarok.
The third and fourth photos show Hurst looking menacingly at the life-size statue of Kratos from the Santa Monica Studio. Although it’s not technically a look down between God of War Ragnarok‘s Kratos and Thor, it foreshadows the intense encounter fans will experience when God of War Ragnarok versions. It’s fun to see Hurst pose in character with the statue while he waits and promotes Kratos and Thor’s heavyweight fight.
The character of Thor has been fully portrayed through God of the war Art director Raf Rossetti’s character model art, while the character was not shown at all in God of War Ragnarok‘s reveal trailer. Thor’s appearance in God of War Ragnarok has been criticized for how it departs from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s interpretation of the Norse God, but it’s apparently closer to the character’s authentic portrayal, as is the inspiration.
Thor’s voice, however, was heard in the trailer as a single line: “You seem like a calm, reasonable person. Are you a calm, reasonable person?” Hurst’s natural command of a low, throaty voice is sure to make Thor a towering threat when players encounter him in God of War Ragnarok.
God of War Ragnarok is due out in 2022 on PS4 and PS5.
