That moment in the Thor: Ragnarok teaser trailer when Thor (with short hair) meets the Incredible Hulk in the gladiatorial arena and screams, “Yes! We know each other. He’s a friend from work,” signals this third solo Thor film might have a more playful tone than Thor 2, Thor: The Dark World. The teaser also shows clips of war in Asgard, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) playing with knifes, and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) facing off against Hela, the Goddess of Death, played by Cate Blanchett.
Directed by Taiki Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, What We Do in the Shadows), the cast also includes Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, and Anthony Hopkins. Disney’s set a November 3, 2017 theatrical release date.
The Plot: 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!
