Thor: Ragnarok Trailer

"Now I know what you're thinking: how did this happen? Well, it's a long story…" Holy smokes this looks so awesome. Disney + Marvel have revealed the first teaser trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, the next sequel in the Thor series. This is directed by New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi, who brings his own comedic edge to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor, with a seriously kick ass cast: Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, plus all of the others from before including Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. There's a very cool sci-fi side to this that looks so cool (plus it feels like this fits right into the Guardians of the Galaxy universe) but it's all about the big battle between Thor and Hulk that we get a tiny glimpse of at the end of this trailer. Ohhh yes. Dive right in!

Here's the first teaser trailer for Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok, direct from Marvel's YouTube:

Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok, the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization, at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger, the Incredible Hulk! Thor: Ragnarok is directed by beloved New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi, of the films Eagle vs Shark, Boy, What We Do in the Shadows, and Hunt for the Wilderpeople previously. The screenplay is written by Eric Pearson, from a story by Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost and Stephany Folsom; based on the Marvel comic books. Disney + Marvel Studios will release Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok in theaters everywhere starting November 3rd this fall. What do you think? Excited to see how this ends up?

    Haha looks better than the first 2. Dig Led Zeppelin's immigrant song on this.
  • Jon Odishaw
    The first two were so forgettable. Taking a chance on Taika is the best thing they could have done. This looks amazing.
    • Ry
      "chance" lol.
      • Jon Odishaw
        Well just because you can make awesome indie comedies doesn't mean that always translates to blockbusters. I liked the choice from the start though.

    Ok, this looks sooooo different than most Marvel movies...and that's a good thing. I love (most) all of them, and I am eager to see how this one fits into the overall universe. But where I was once worried about this, I now have some real excitement. But I still have one question...when does this take place? Because the end of Dr. Strange has Thor and Strange talking about finding Loki and Odin in NY, and Strange offers to help, but Thor has all his hair. So I am curious as to how they explain that. I know, hair today, gone tomorrow, not a big deal,but still an ssue on a franchise that prides itself on continuity.

      To be honest, it looks like Thor and Hela are in NY at the beginning of the trailer, so I'm assuming it takes place not long after the Thor/Strange scene.
  • Justin R
    I was expecting a darker version of Thor, almost like a softcore Logan in the sense of more killing and "end of days" feel, but I really like what they did with this trailer. I'm always ready to see a Marvel film, but this just up'ed my anticipation.
  • grimjob
    Damn, looks better than expected. I'm actually excited to see this one. And it's nice when they use the original version of the song instead of some horrible cover.
    • charley newman
      He has the classic Thor helmet in the first movie.
      • grimjob
        Really? Damn, guess it's been awhile.
        • charley newman
          Yeah, I haven't seen it in a while. That movie is pretty forgettable. I forgot the helmet was in the movie until a couple years later when I was watching a YouTube video and someone showed a clip and talked about how they wanted it to come back, and I've remembered ever since then. I just thought I'd share that, because I think it's funny that I remember a clip from a random YouTube video than the movie Thor.
          • grimjob
            About a year ago I made it a point to watch the second one because I thought I never had. But about halfway through I realized that I actually had already seen it and just completely forgot. As I type this I can't remember anything about it.
  • RAW_D
    This looks! Dark World didn't do much for me, but this looks like a "Thor out of Asgard" cool ride. But I wish they'd stop using the Immigrant Song for every movie trailer. Great song and while I admit it works here...there's GOT to be other songs that are just as good!
    • Jon Odishaw
      I liked the use of I'm gonna leave you babe in the King Arthur trailer
      • RAW_D
        Agreed. It worked really well with that trailer.
  • Payne by name
    Oh yeah, this looks good. I've been hoping for a film that would use the brash and hilarious arrogance of Thor "I need a horse!" from the first Thor and the simple scene from the second one when the woman bumps into his chest on the London Underground and Thor simply smiles. That attitude was captured in those 'office' style shorts that we've seen and I'm really hoping that they keep that type of energy. I really like his character but his standalone films have been criminally poor. Fingers are crossed.
    The sound mix fade was sooo smooth to that build up.
    Damn!! I have not been this smitten for a Marvel movie since the first GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY teaser! This was a damn good advert!!~
  • shiboleth
    Ok that was funny and crazy. And of course, what else could one expect from Hulk?
  • Bo
    Well...I'll take a pass...loved the song of the greatest of the great Led Zeppelin songs for sure. Also...Ms. Blanchett...would she please come pay me a visit some time around midnight...wearing that black leather outfit she's sporting here...please!
    • Indeed. This song stays with you forever. voodoo trick probably. ;D
      • Bo
        Yea, could me it has always been one of their best. I remember it because the first time I heard it was at one of their concerts in San Diego...I guess they were promoting their third album which is my favorite of theirs. We were up really close and they opened with Plant beginning this song with that scream/singing and it blew me out of my was, of course, medicated highly....we hadn't gotten the album yet and had never heard the song before. It was, to say the least, very memorable and still one of my favorite songs by per our prior discussions regarding all things Viking and all. Cheers.
    • BigJohnson
      Amazing trailer...he doesn't like it...troll job?
  • I'm Quanah, and I approve of this message.
    • grimjob
      I approve your approval.
  • Akirakorn
    I hope the MTV Movie and TV awards does a "What We Avengers Do in the Shadows" skit this year. Crazy how Ryan and Taika have gone from Green Lantern to Deadpool and Thor: Ragnarok. I guess every planet-eating cloud has a silver lining.
