You really can’t go wrong when you open a trailer with Led Zeppelin. The highly anticipated teaser for THOR: RAGNAROK has arrived from the land of the ice and snow, and it’s god a hell of a sense of fun about it.
With the exception of a small cameo in Doctor Strange, it’s been a couple of years since we’ve seen Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on screen. In Marvel Studios’ THOR: RAGNAROK, 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!
The trailer seems to continue much of the humour from director Taika Waititi’s series of ‘Team Thor’ shorts, including that priceless final line of the teaser. The rest of the reel is a perfect blend of familiar characters and fast-cutting action.
THOR: RAGNAROK drops in Australia on 26 October 2017, followed by a US release on 3 November, from Disney.
