Not a moment too soon, the first trailer for Taika Waiti’s Thor: Ragnarok is here and it looks as awesome as we all expected it to be. I’m not going to go on for too long, figure I’ll let you guys check this out for yourself.
Oh man, where do I even begin? There’s just too much great stuff to be found in this trailer. Almost immediately, Ragnarok looks to be bursting with more character and spunk than either of the previous two Thor films. It looks bright, colorful, and especially weird. This may turn out to be Marvel’s best-looking movie to date. Plus, with Led Zeppelin behind it, the trailer has the same sort of swagger that Guardians of the Galaxy has going for it.
I absolutely love the design of Cate Blanchett’s Hela. I’m so excited to see her face off against Thor and Asgard. She looks so fierce and menacing, especially when destroying Mjolnir.
Oh yeah, MJOLNIR WAS DESTROYED. That’s a pretty big plot development to throw out in a trailer, but it automatically introduces us the state of chaos that Thor is going to find himself in come Ragnarok.
What else? We got your Goldblum, which looks as ridiculous as we could have possibly hoped. We got a small glimpse of Karl Urban’s Skurge the Executioner dual wielding M16s, respectively. Then we have Loki flipping knives, Heimdall looking like a savage bad ass, and of course, the money shot, Gladiator Hulk, lampshaded by Waititi’s specific brand of humor.
All within the span of two minutes. As the kids say these days: shit’s crazy, yo.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
Unfortunately, we still have quite the wait ahead of us. Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t hit theaters until November 3rd. We still have Spider-Man: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 between now and then, and honestly, I’m having a hard time deciding which I’m most excited for.
