Thor: Ragnarok trailer released; shot by shot breakdown

But Marvel like to drop a surprise now and then and yesterday saw the debut of the first, excellent Thor: Ragnarok trailer. The trailer's soundtrack is Led Zeppelin's hit number Immigrant Song.

From the looks of it, director Taika Waititi has chose to discard the overly dramatic feel of the previous two Thor films, and embrace the character's campiness.

Here are five things that got us geeking out after watching the trailer. However, Hulk seems to have no recollection of who the Norse god is and straightaway charged.Fans have to wait to see how the Hulk ended up in Sakaar and whether he was brainwashed to have forgotten Thor. Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum and Karl Urban are also joining the cast of the film.

Seriously, this is one of the best Marvel trailers yet, and we're definitely pumped for this movie.

This is likely a pivotal part of the movie, as Thor's greatest source of power is his magic hammer. As if that's not trouble enough, Hela (Cate Blanchett), the Asgardian goddess of death has accidentally been freed and takes over.

"Asgard is dead", she later says, laying waste to the city. However, Bank's "stolen style" joke doesn't really make any sense because Hela's always had her dark green look in the comics.

Comic fans will recognise this Gladiator Hulk from the Planet Hulk series. The trailer also first reveals his bout against his "friend from work", no other than the Incredible Hulk. What we do know is that Mark Ruffalo completed his scenes for Thor: Ragnarok several months before filming wrapped. Is he betting on his brother's fights? And while the Thor franchise is generally seen as the MCU's weak link, there are reasons for optimism when it comes to the threequel. "Thor: Ragnarok" will be premiered this coming November 3, 2017.

Hela's main objective seems to be the destruction of Asgard.
