It’s Hammer Time! As we checked out Press previews The God Of Thunder was unleashed as Marvel Studios releases the first UK trailer for Thor: Ragnarok. Everyone’s favourite Asgardian will return to our cinema screens later this year, with a new director (Taika Waititi) and a new direction. If you’re concerned that Thor movie 3, don’t be after you watch this, you’ll be excited as us to see this. It’s totally bonkers, exciting, offbeat and there’s life still in the old dog called Marvel Cinema Universe.
If you’re wondering why Thor (Chris Hemsworth)wasn’t swinging his hammer in Captain America’s cold war Superhero Civil War, he’s stuck on the other side of the universe. As you’ll see from the new trailer he’s getting plenty of hammer action and faces a very familiar face…The Incredible Hulk! Smash Thor!!!
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!
When you have Jeff Goldblum as our very blue, golden robes as The Grandmaster, looking like he’s having a whale of a time you know you’re in for a fun movie. Where can you start when it comes to why Waititi was chosen as the new director? It’s impossible but what he has done has refreshed a very flat Thor franchise to something that feels refreshing as if it’s the first time we’ve met Thor. Superhero movies will have the action, the mystery, the colourful baddies, but they want to have fun, be funny too. Waititi looks to have used his quirky comedic sensibilities and answer those calls, cue Led Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant’s Song’
Thor: Ragnarok is set for an October 2017 UK &Irish release (The USA 3rd November). The movie stars Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki, joined by Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
