The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok teased the fight between Thor and his “friend from work” Hulk, but we can already guess how that fight may end based on the joke in the new clip above. Thor can’t get a ship’s computer to acknowledge him as the pilot, because the “strongest Avenger” needs to unlock it. If he’s going to drive our ships to new lands and fight the hordes, he’ll need someone to get the engine to start first. Luckily — after a little retconning — the real “strongest Avenger” is on hand.
Marvel has also released another clip and two TV spots recently. The first video below shows part of a no-longer-secret cameo, when another hero informs Thor that Destiny has some plans for him. Does that destiny involve noticing when Valkyrie does a cool stunt? Because Valkyrie wants us to notice when she does a cool stunt.
Chris Hemsworth shared a clip on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week. It features an improvised scene — “probably 80 percent” of the film was ad-libbed according to director Taika Waititi — between Thor and Korg, voiced by Waititi. According to James Gunn, Korg “steals every scene he’s in.” Well, he did slide a handjob joke onto network TV, so that’s pretty memorable.
Finally, we couldn’t end this post without mentioning Oscar winner Cate Blanchett as Hela, the Goddess of Death. (Frankly, all posts — about any topic — should mention Cate Blanchett as Hela, the Goddess of Death.) This featurette shows Hela commanding Thor and Loki to kneel. This is now my aesthetic.
Thor: Ragnarok opens November 3rd.
