In connection with the much-anticipated theatrical release of Marvel Studios's Thor: Ragnarok, SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. and the Walt Disney Company joined forces to unveil life-size gladiator figures of Thor and Hulk in an interactive exhibit that will tour SM Malls located in Metro Manila.
Firing up the festivities, Marvel fans got a sneak peek of the movie through iconic display and immersive activities at SM Southmall Las Pinas. Mall visitors were also treated to other engaging activities and installations such as an interactive Thor-inspired photo booth at a first look at the exclusive Disney merchandise of Thor, Hulk, Loki, and Valkyrie. Mobile gamers also got a chance to try out Marvel Studio apps such as Marvel Future Fight, Marvel Contest of Champions, Marvel Puzzle Quest, and Marvel Avengers Academy.
Thor: Ragnarok marks the return of the god of thunder to the silver screen and the first time Marvel Studios is introducing a major female villain, Hela, who will threaten to destroy Thor's home world.
