As Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster bellows at the start of this brand new TV spot for Thor: Ragnarok, ‘It’s main event time”, well almost, as we get another look at Taika Waititi’s eagerly anticipated foray into the Marvel universe before it enters the arena of our multiplexes on October 27th.
The new footage sees The Incredible Hulk take on a huge wolf, more likeable attitude and kick-ass action from Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, and a wonderfully judged piece of comedy, in keeping with the tone we’ve seen so far, in which Thor comes up with a name for his newly assembled team of heroes. You can watch the trailer below.
In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer, Mjolnir, 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 threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally, friend from work, and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople genius, Taika Waititi and stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, alongside Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Taika Waititi as Korg, Clancy Brown as Surtur, Rachel House as Topaz, and Sam Neill.
