Thor Ragnarok

In the previous shots of Sakaar, we see some portals around the planet, and they appear to be a normal part of the environment. However, there’s something much more intense happening with this particular portal. Also, there’s that ship on the right that’s swooping in, and we know it’s going to be rather important, because a logo representing that ship is on the hats given to members of the Thor: Ragnarok production crew.

Thor Ragnarok - Tom Hiddleston as Loki

We finally have our first look at Karl Urban as Skruge the Executioner in a quick shot. He’s wielding two assault rifles, which seems weird for someone in the Thor franchise, but it’s pulled straight from the comics. Funnily enough, in the comics, Skurge also finds himself enamored with Amora the Enchantress and does her bidding because of it. It seems that some of Amora the Enchatress’ elements are being transferred to Hela in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thor Ragnarok

Here’s another quick shot of Hela as she fights Asgardians. She flips through the air, and it looks like she’s having no trouble dealing with an entire army. What’s it going to take to stop her?

Thor Ragnarok - Tom Hiddleston as Loki

Next up, we get this killer shot of Tom Hiddleston as Loki, tossing a couple daggers into the air as he walks across a bridge that appears to be on Asgard. He’s wearing his horned helmet and looks like a badass, but who is he walking towards in this instance? Could he be trying to defend Asgard from Hela at first before running away and leaving her to take over the city? Last we saw him, he was pretending to be Odin and ruling over Asgard, so he might be the only one there left to defend it. But what’s that thing with a staff on the left and how are all those people behind him?

Thor Ragnarok - Chris Hemsworth as Thor

Now we’re back to what Valkyrie brought Thor to The Grandmaster for the in first place. We’ve seen this look on Chris Hemworth from the first Thor: Ragnarok photos, which revealed his haircut and war paint. We hear Jeff Goldblum say it’s main event time.

As the doors across the arena start to open to reveal his opponent, Thor puts on a new helmet, which looks like a futuristic version of his classic helmet as he locks the wings into place before battle.

Thor Ragnarok - Mark Ruffalo as Hulk

Then we get the money shot. Thor’s opponent is none other than the Incredible Hulk, all decked out with gladiator armor and huge weapons. You would think Thor would look defeated and worried at this point, but instead…

He couldn’t be more thrilled. The look on Hemsworth’s face is priceless and hilarious. He looks like what Marvel fans would look like if they encountered Hulk in real life.

Thor Ragnarok - Jeff Goldbum as The Grandmaster

This creates some confusion among the spectators, including The Grandmaste,r who is watching from his luxurious box seat. And look who’s there to watch the fun: none other than Loki. How did he end up on Sakaar?

Thor delightfully explains that he knows Hulk as a friend from work, which is about the funniest way to describe being on the Avengers together and saving the world. However, it looks like someone doesn’t care.

Thor Ragnarok - Mark Ruffalo as Hulk

We know Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) can’t always control Hulk when he’s in full “big guy” mode, and either that’s what’s happening here, or Banner knows that he has to keep up a certain appearance while on Sakaar or risk being in trouble himself. From previously released photos, it looks like when Thor and Bruce Banner (in human form) meet on Sakaar, it’s somewhat in secret. That means Hulk and Thor are going to have to duke it out in the arena.

Thor Ragnarok

In a shot that feels straight from the comics: Thor and Hulk leap at each other before we smash to the Thor: Ragnarok title.

There was so much good stuff in this teaser trailer and I can’t wait to see more. Again, we have to keep our hype in check, but this looks absolutely incredible so far. After this, director Taika Waititi is going to be a huge filmmaker (instead of just being a great filmmaker), and we’re going to see some very exciting things from him in the future.

Thor: Ragnarok arrives on November 3, 2017.
