Thor: Ragnarok - Teaser Trailer

Who knew we could all get this excited about a third Thor movie? Thank director Taika Waititi for that.

New Zealand's auteur of the moment has jumped off recent indie hit Hunt for the Wilderpeople to the blockbuster leagues without, seemingly, having to compromise much of his distinctive, comedic vision.

Having long promised Thor: Ragnarok will be Marvel's most "out there" film - a fairly ambitious feat considering all the movies about talking raccoons and tiny bug men - the first trailer for the film does actually hint Waititi is living up to his word: this film looks like wicked fun.

It also seems to have revealed a surprising amount about the upcoming threequel, considering Marvel has so far been pretty tight-lipped about the film's actual plot, outside of confirmation the film would take inspiration from the famous Planet Hulk storyline by placing both Thor and Hulk in the gladiatorial ring for an epic brawl.

Here's our shot-by-shot breakdown of the trailer, alongside a few revelations of what's in store.


Thor: Ragnarok hits UK cinemas 27 October.
