Where Is Thor’s Mighty Hair? Chris Hemsworth Explains His Character’s Jarring New Look
No, it’s not one of Loki’s trickster illusions: Like the Norse god’s mighty hammer in Marvel’s first film featuring Chris Hemsworth, Thor’s hair has been snatched!
The superhero’s signature long blonde locks are missing on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s latest issue, which features the stars of Thor: Ragnarok—a jarringly different-looking Hemsworth included.
“It was nice not to have to sit in the makeup chair for that hour each morning,” Hemsworth told the magazine of his new ‘do. “It felt like a rebirth for me as the actor but also as the character.”
Meanwhile, fans are shorn— excuse me, torn, over the actor’s short hair:
thor is not thor without long hair and mjölnir

#ThorRagnarok RIP Thor's hair. I see you didn't survive 2016 as well.

Whoever at Marvel is responsible, hear this: THOR NEEDS LONG HAIR. It's kind of the whole point. He needs to look ridiculous AND cool.

Hate to sound like a complainer, but not into the new Thor look. At. All.
If the hair is long, the hero is strong.
Write that down.
