This morning saw the release of a teaser trailer for the latest installment of Thor movies, entitled Thor: Ragnarok. We got a first look at the movie one month ago when Entertainment Weekly gave us a peek of Thor’s new haircut, but now we get to see it in action, as how he came to get it.
There a heck of a lot going on in this trailer: the introduction of Hela, Goddess of Death, Asgard in ruins, Loki flipping around throwing knives, Jeff Goldblum‘s Grandmaster, and Thor being forced to fight his friend the Hulk in an arena. But one of the more shocking moments comes at the beginning of the trailer when we see Hela crush Mjolnir, Thor’s trusty hammer.
The trailer seems to hint that the movie will have a bit of lightness and humor to it, despite some very dark circumstances. This is no doubt due to the influence of director Taika Waititi, best known for the film What We Do in the Shadows. One of the complaints of the two previous Thor movies is that there was almost no humor, something Marvel seems to have attempted to rectify in this film.
Thor: Ragnarok flies into theaters November 3rd.
