Marvel Studios has just released the first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok. The trailer teases the God of Thunder’s battle with not the villainous Hela (Cate Blanchett), but also his gladiator showdown with fellow Avenger Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in the film.
The first trailer for Ragnarok was previously expected to be released with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in theaters in a few weeks, but Marvel has decided to get a head start on marketing the movie ahead of then. Ragnarok was directed by Taika Waititi, the acclaimed New Zealand filmmaker behind such quirky indie offerings as What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople.
Although Waititi’s actual Thor movie appears to have its own fair share of offbeat characters and humors in the mix, the teaser trailer for Ragnarok adapts a more serious tone, in order to better get audiences hyped for the film’s adventure storyline.
