The last trailer of Taika Waititi's superhero film Thor: Ragnarok saw Thor's indestructible hammer shattered into pieces by Hela, the 'Goddess of Death', played by Cate Blanchett. The first trailer ended with a bang as well - Thor gearing himself for a duel with none other than his fellow Avenger - The Hulk.
The second trailer was launched at the San Diego Comic Con 2017. The new trailer carried forward the narrative of the first one. It interestingly shows Thor telling Hulk of the proceedings that happened while Hulk was not himself. This reveals that Hulk has not really turned his back on The Avengers, unlike Captain America, and is still the loyal yet occasionally uncontrollable Bruce Banner, played by Mark Ruffalo.
Also, like every Marvel film these days, the protagonist realises that he cannot defeat Hela all by himself. So he invites three more superheroes to lend a helping hand. Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth in a new look, is joined by his brother Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston; new character Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson; and The Hulk.
The viewers do not know what these four are collectively called but they make for some spectacular visuals, particularly against Hela, who comes across as formidable but also as unreal as an evil queen from fairy tales. But there are two particular visuals towards the end of the trailer that show Hulk and Thor at their optimum best. Not to miss out on the soundtrack, Magic Sword's 'In the face of Evil' delivers the power-packed punch that was need.
The makers also unveiled a new poster of the film.
Thor: Ragnarok will be an interesting watch not only for its ensemble cast but also for it will reveal what Thor is capable of, minus his weapon of choice.
Thor: Ragnarok also stars Benedict Cumberbatch who will reprise his role of Dr Strange. However, there was no trace of him in the second trailer either. The film is produced by Marvel Studios and is slated to release on 3 November.
