Chris Hemsworth Introduces Yet Another New Thor: Ragnarok Trailer


Two months out from release, and the exhaustive marketing campaign for Thor: Ragnarok is now beginning to enter the final stretch. And it’s just as well, too, lest Marvel spoil the entirety of Taika Waititi’s intergalactic road trip. Throughout the course of the past few days we’ve heard about everything from the film’s ties to Avengers: Infinity War to how the ending will impact the God of Thunder moving forward. But it doesn’t stop there. Not at all.

Despite just dropping a new trailer for the hugely anticipated threequel yesterday, we now have yet another promo for Ragnarok and this one gets an introduction from star Chris Hemsworth. Admittedly, it’s not much and is made up entirely of footage we’ve already seen – just cut together differently – but it’s still worth a watch for fans of the God of Thunder, especially as Hemsworth addressing the audience is a nice touch. Even if it’s just to sell more tickets.

Plus, if nothing else, the promo above is yet another timely reminder that Thor: Ragnarok is shaping up to be one of the most visually stunning entries into the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, and may even dethrone Civil War for its A-list cast. Not only does the threequel bring together MCU stalwarts in the vein of Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Tom Hiddleston as the meddling God of Mischief, but there are also big-name additions like Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban and Jeff Goldblum to look forward to. Dressed in regal clothing and featuring bright blue face paint, we know the latter plays the all-wise Grandmaster in Taika Waititi’s space opera.

After impressing viewers the world over with What We Do in the Shadows and last year’s ruddy brilliant Hunt for the Wilderpeople – for the record, its breakout star Julian Dennison has since landed a key role in Deadpool 2 – Waititi’s next directorial effort will be on our screens on November 3rd. The New Zealand director has a knack for cameos, too, so keep your peepers peeled for him (and Stan Lee!) when Ragnarok hits theaters.
