There's been a lot of talk about Thor: Ragnarok over the past few months. People want to talk about that big Thor and Hulk moment that is coming, they want to talk about what's going on with Mjolnir and they also want to talk about Chris Hemsworth cutting his hair. That's right, Thor is shearing off his golden locks sometime in Thor: Ragnarok, and over the weekend, Chris Hemsworth told the audience exactly how long we can expect to see Thor keep his original hair in the upcoming movie. According to one audience member, the actor said:

So, there you have it, Thor will keep his long locks for at least a third of the movie. At least according to what he told fans at the Supanova Comic-Con in Australia. At that point, speculation has been rampant that when Mjolnir gets broken, as has already been shown in the trailer, Thor will be arrested and will be taken to become a gladiator, losing his hair in the process. So, if all that holds true, we'll be seeing Thor meet up with The Hulk in the arena fairly early into the movie--perhaps even a little over 1/3 of the way in.

The Thor: Ragnarok trailer has brought in an impressive number of views since it first dropped a couple of months ago. The two-minute trailer has been viewed over 39 million times on YouTube alone since Marvel released it, and it includes a lot of details, even showing us the moment that Chris Hemsworth meets up with Cate Blanchett's Hela and she destroys his hammer with her perfectly manicured hand.

A later shot shows Thor getting captured by Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie, after which he's strapped in a chair. Then he ends up -- with short hair -- in an arena, where he has to face off against his former co-worker The Hulk.

Chris Hemsworth has previously called his new look a revelation, noting that it means he has to spend less time getting ready in the makeup and hair chair. He also said at the time that it was a good move for the character.

It was nice not to have to sit in the makeup chair for that hour each morning. It felt like a rebirth for me as the actor but also as the character.

Overall, Thor seems to be going in a different direction during Ragnarok, and it looks like we'll be getting the new look, at least, during the first half of the movie. We won't have too much longer to wait to find out, and hopefully a few more trailers and TV spots will reveal more. Thor: Ragnarok will hit theaters on November 3, 2017. In the meantime, take a look at what we know about the upcoming Marvel film.
