Thor: Ragnarok Gets A "Revengers" Fan Poster
Last night during NFL football, Marvel Studios debuted a new "Contenders" spot for Thor: Ragnarok which featured Chris Hemsworth offering a suggestion for their new team: "The Revengers."
“I’m putting together a team,” Thor tells Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie, to which she responds, “This team of yours, does it got a name?”
Thor takes a look at Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner and replies, “Yeah, it’s called the Re… Revengers.”
Valkyrie isn't too impressed with the team name, which sees Thor offer, “Well, I mean, we don’t have to have a name. We could have no name.”
The Revengers are an actual team in the Marvel Comics, with the 616 version led by Simon "Wonder Man" Willams also featuring D-Man, Anti-Venom, Virtue, Captain Ultra, Goliath, Atlas, Devil-Slayer and Century, with the Revengers at odds with the Avengers.
Marvel COSMIC fans will also recognize The Revengers as the evil version of the Avengers from the Cancervere as part of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning's epic line of Marvel COSMIC comics and The Thanos Imperative.
A fan went out and manipulated the Thor: Ragnarok poster and made a "Revengers" poster. Also check out the Thor: Ragnarok "Contenders" spot below which references Revengers (via reddit).
