Saturday during Marvel’s Hall-H panel at Comic-Con they released the second trailer for Thor: Ragnarok that finds Asgard threatened and Thor imprisoned.
Marvel Studios has taken a different direction with Thor: Ragnarok by using bright colors and a lighter tone not to mention making Thor battle the Hulk a former ally and Avenger, it also promises plenty of action and with beats of comedy and the return of Loki.
Some notable additions to the cast includes Cate Blanchett as Hela, Karl Urban as Skurge, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie seen in the trailer working with Thor and Hulk.
Something we get to see in this trailer we have yet to see in any of the other MCU movies the Hulk has appeared in is that of the Hulk talking and carrying on a conversation with Thor a huge upgrade for the character. Mark Ruffalo at Comic-Con shared an interesting back-story about the Hulk for Ragnarok as to why Hulk stayed the Hulk for so long and didn’t revert back to Banner.
“Hulk refuses to turn back to Banner, and he’s actually enjoying his time on Sakaar. He’s enjoying his life for once, and he’ll be damned if he’s going back to Banner.”
Obviously when you watch the trailer or if you’ve already seen it Mark Ruffalo is seen as Banner. There’s no doubt that Marvel made the decision to take Thor in a bit of a new direction and also take the opportunity to show that the Hulk is not just an upset green monster all the time and that there is more to the character.
“Thor: Ragnarok” hits theaters on November 3, 2017.
Cast; Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
