While Pak and others also veered into other decades, it was the 1930s hashtag that really took off.

Set photos — both official and otherwise — from the set of Thor: Ragnarok continue to hit the internet, and the latest batch feature the return of another familiar face, though he’s not looking quite how you remember him. With most of Ragnarok taking place in Asgard and its various unearthly realms, it’s kind of surprising to see Anthony Hopkins in costume on the streets of New York City, looking like he’s in need of some spare change. (And a change of clothes. And a shower.)

It’s a testament to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that Ant-Man was a critical and commercial success despite its highly publicized production issues. While many of the other films in the series deal with world domination or destruction, Ant-Man lowered the stakes a little bit and gave us an old-fashioned heist film about a group of lovable losers and an evil corporation. And none of these losers were quite so lovable as Michael Pena’s Luis, who stole an entire film from both Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd.
