Obviously the mighty Thor wasn’t going to miss a San Diego Comic-Con party. Marvel’s cast and creatives behind “Thor: Ragnarok” assembled at this year’s event, meeting with fans and talking about the upcoming film. Marvel even released a new trailer for Thor’s big film, which will release later this winter.
This isn’t the first trailer released for “Thor: Ragnarok,” but Marvel fans will probably want to see all they can of their favorite heroes before their films hit the big-screen. Thor and his friends are set to hit theaters in November, and you can watch the official-trailer that was screened at SDCC this year below.
In the story Thor must battle the Hulk in a gladiator match, all the while trying to save his people from the ruthless Hela. This new Thor installment was directed by Taika Waititi, working from a story written by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. “Thor: Ragnarok” will also star Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Cate Blanchett, Jaimie Alexander, Anthony Hopkins, Mark Ruffalo and Tessa Thompson.
The first film in the spinoff “Thor” storyline was an instant hit with Marvel. The original “Thor” was directed by Kenneth Branagh, and made over $181M at the domestic box-office for Marvel. The film then went on to gross over $449M at the worldwide box-office. That installment featured Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman. The second film in the Thor storyline was titled “Thor: The Dark World,” and that installment was directed by Alan Taylor. The sequel also starred Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston. In true Thor fashion, “Thor 2” did even better than the original, grossing over $206M at the domestic box-office before ending its theatrical run with over $644M.
Fans can watch Thor and The Hulk battle it out on November 3, 2017. Marvel fans still have “Black Panther,” “Captain Marvel,” and “Avengers: Infinity War” releasing over the next two-years.
