Who needs the Avengers? In Thor: Ragnarok, the God of Thunder is putting his own team together in order to combat Hela, the Goddess of Death, and her quest to take over Asgard. Consisting of himself, his old buddy Hulk, his (adopted) brother Loki and Valkyrie, clips shown in the trailers released thus far reveal that Thor names the team the Revengers on the fly.
If you’re looking for more info on how this squad comes about and how these four uneasy allies are able to put their squabbles aside to foil Cate Blanchett’s evil villainess, we’ve got just the thing. Earlier today, Marvel released a new featurette for the threequel which focuses on exactly that. Give it a watch below!
So, is this the birth of a new superhero team that we’ll be seeing lots more of? Well, no, probably not. However, though the Revengers will likely be a one-and-done deal, we’re bound to see all of these characters again very soon. Three out of the four have been 100% confirmed to reappear in Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, while Tessa Thompson is also heavily rumoured to be reprising her role as Valkyrie in the mega-movies. This time, though, Thor’s ragtag group will be part of a much bigger army – including the Avengers, the Guardians and the rest of the MCU’s assorted heroes – battling against Thanos.
