Marvel's intergalactic "Thor: Ragnarok" looks a lot like "Guardians of the Galaxy"

The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok - the third standalone chapter for the Asgardian demigod - with actor Chris Hemsworth sporting a new hairdo is out now.

Fans of the film can get excited about the trailer's revealing of huge landscapes and scintillating special effects.

Ragnarok does away with that; it's fun, opening with Thor addressing viewers and saying, "I know what you're thinking".

Thor: Ragnarok's teaser trailer has generated a thunderous response online, with Chris Hemsworth's hero pleasing crowds by squaring off against Mark Ruffalo's Hulk.

Waititi is known for his humor and his trademark style will definitely be featured heavily in the new film.

Hulk and Thor sat out Captain America: Civil War, so it's only fair that they would get to fight here. It looks like the Hulk wasn't happy either to see him or be called a friend, and so he charges at him in full force. "We know each other", he then tried to explain. "He's a friend from work!" The teaser confirmed just how powerful Cate Blanchett's Hela is going to be and what happened to Idris Elba's Heimdall when Asgard fell. "Heimdall isn't amusing. You haven't heard Heimdall laugh, or crack too many jokes", he said.

In traditional Norse mythology, "Ragnarok" is the massive future battle that kills a number of major figures, including Thor, Loki and Odin. Those are some striking similarities between two completely different characters in two completely different movie universes, so the goofy shade is not entirely unfounded on the part of Ms. Banks. And for Thor: Ragnarok, the third Marvel film to center on the Norse God, the new tone makes flawless sense.
