Thor: Ragnarok's First Trailer Is Spectacular And Hilarious

"I know him from work!"


The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok is here. The Marvel fantasy adventure hits theaters in November, and this initial look at the movie promises spectacular intergalactic action and a big gladiatorial showdown between Thor and fellow Avenger Hulk. Check it out below:

The movie stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, with Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki. As the trailer shows, Cate Blanchett plays the villainous Hela, while Jeff Goldblum will appear as immortal games-playing Grandmaster. There are also roles for Karl Urban (Star Trek) and Tessa Thompson (Creed).

A synopsis for the movie was released earlier this year. It reads: "In 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!"

Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taiki Waititi and arrives on November 3, 2017. The movie's poster has also been released--check it out here:
