Marvel has just released the first teaser trailer of “Thor: Ragnarok.“ The trailer starts with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) chained up and in a new world. This comes after Hela (Cate Blanchett) destroys Thor’s hammer Mjolnir and invades Asgard. Now, Thor is on a new planet run by the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) and his warrior servant Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson).
There are also shots of Heimdall (Idris Elba) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) defending Asgard against Hela’s onslaught. The trailer also gave a first look at Hela’s cohort Skurge (Karl Urban). The trailer ends with Thor, hair cut and put in gladiatorial garb, about to fight another gladiator. However, much the happy surprise to Thor, his opponent is the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). However, the Hulk is not as happy to see Thor, and they both start to fight.
Taika Waititi is directing the film with a screenplay by Eric Pearson. Also starring in the film is Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Sam Neill, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange. “Thor: Ragnarok” will release on November 3, 2017.
