Cate Blanchett in Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok Trailer #3 (2017) “Thor, Destiny Has Dire Plans For You”

In the third trailer for Thor: Ragnarok (also the Japanese trailer in which the film’s weird lettering makes sense for the first time), we get mostly footage from the first two trailers, but it does have a very new beginning featuring Doctor Strange.  We knew Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme would be in the film from one of Doctor Strange‘s end credits scenes last year, but he opens this trailer, which has a much more dire tone than the humor of the first two, by telling Thor that his fate has changed and destiny has dire plans for him.  Read below for the official synopsis.  Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November 3, 2017.
Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok

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 gladatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!

Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. The film also stars Cate Blanchett as the death-obsessed Hela, Tessa Thompson as hero Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the eccentric Grandmaster and Karl Urban as Skurge. Also among the cast is Sam Neill, reuniting with Taika Waititi, who directed him in his previous film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and his Jurassic Park co-star Jeff Goldblum. Finally, as teased at the end of his solo film, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will team with the God of Thunder to deal with Loki.

Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay hails from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost.

Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.

  1. Is it just me, or does this look beyond incredible? The visual aesthetic is like nothing I’ve ever seen. It looks like an arcade game from my childhood, come to life with hundreds of millions of dollars behind it. I don’t know if I’m just feeling frustrated (bewildered? sucker punched?) with the world tonight, and looking for a doorway into Pure Fantasy, but it’s looking like the lead-in to Infinity War is going to be INSANE.

    I have not seen Homecoming yet. I’m going to try for this weekend, but movies have been hard, so much to do and not enough energy afterwards to drag myself to a theater. But I have to say, as much as I want to see it, I’m just a little unenthused, because I think Disney/Marvel made a mistake by making the movie so familiar. I know there are legal problems surrounding the character and the related characters, but how amazing would it have been if the MCU had been able to launch directly into a trilogy dealing with Venom and the symbiotes? My horror with how SM3 dealt with Venom knows no bounds, and the fact that Sony is moving forward with a Venom standalone movie (with no mention of Spider-Man!) and leaping right into Carnage… it is incredibly frustrating, because I know no one there cares, all they know is that Venom is popular and looks cool and can be brought to life using sooooooooo much CGI. After what they did to the Dark Tower, everyone at Sony deserves to be boinked in the eyes. I don’t blame the suits, for all I know there is something wrong with them that could be detectable through a brain scan. I blame the good, normal people who enable the suits, and tell them their ideas are good.


    1. If you already think its too familiar you either had it spoiled or don’t realize we haven’t had a real Spidey before Tom Holland. Ragnarok lools as good to me as it does to you and people seem overwhelmingly more excited about it than JL. I hear you on getting to the movies. Hard to do a movie blog when you can barely afford to go these days.


      1. Chin up. My instinct tells me The Last Jedi will be one of the best SW movies ever made. I saw Brick, and based on that and Looper, Johnson might be the most talented director (not person, but director) to ever helm a SW movie.

        I was sold when I saw the caretakers, they look like something out of Lewis Carroll. All the design work I’ve seen, everything, reminds me of the whimsey and strangeness that were present in the visuals in the prequels. Marry that with competence, and you’ve got something. (I of course mean competence when it comes to certain aspects of the filmmaking craft; Lucas is still the most talented PERSON to ever direct a Star Wars movie, as we all know.)


      2. How many episodes of Breaking Bad are there? Because David Lynch has almost finished enthusiastically rubbing his hands together and messing with my head, and I need that next series. Twin Peaks: The Return has been like a gateway drug that has gotten me back into television, and once the combination locust/frog had crawled into the sleeping girl’s mouth, and the woodsman had crushed two skulls, I realized I couldn’t use “too dark” as an excuse anymore to not watch something. After Twin Peaks I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to watch anything again where you know what the hell is going on. I’ve been conditioned to accept the subconscious of David Lynch as a thing. God help me and the two other people in the world who are watching.
