Thor: Ragnarok, Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor's quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
Thor: Ragnarok features the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin. The film also stars Cate Blanchett as the first female Marvel villain and Queen of Hel… Hela, Tessa Thompson as hero Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the eccentric Grandmaster and his Jurassic Park co-star Sam Neill, and Karl Urban as Skurge. Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will also team with the God of Thunder to deal with Loki.
Produced by Kevin Feige, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost.
Thor: Ragnarok in theaters November 3, 2017.
Taking a cue from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, The Thor films have always been kind of weird, but the third installment looks to finally embrace that weirdness. With that Thor: Ragnarok looks to bring epic adventure to the Marvel universe for the first time. Marvel has never been a stranger to using rock'n roll to sell their movies but never has it been more appropriate with Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” playing loud and proud.
As teaser trailers go the one for Ragnarok takes the cake, managing to introduce the audience to new characters such as Valkyrie, Grandmaster, and Hela as well as sprinkling in franchise regulars like Loki and Heimdall. The film also looks to bring in other Avengers with a little bit of Planet Hulk and not featured in the trailer Doctor Strange.
With Thor’s Hammer being destroyed are we finally getting the final Infinity Stone, before next years Avengers: Infinity War? When will we get Doctor Strange in a trailer? Are the holding out on telling us that the Guardians will be in it? What song would you have chosen instead of immigrant song? Sound off in the comments below!
