'Thor: Ragnarok' Brings Thunderous Trailer to Comic-Con
A new Thor: Ragnarok trailer hammered its way into San Diego Comic-Con Saturday.
Star Chris Hemsworth was candid during the Marvel Studios panel.
"I've played this character five times. I got a bit bored. Spoke with [director] Taika Waititi], spoke with Kevin [Feige] ... ...it was about pushing myself."
So they decided to cut his hair, lose the hammer and "make it unique," said Hemsworth.
Hemswroth once again stars as Thor, with Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk and Tom Hiddleston as Loki. Series newcomers include Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum and Tessa Thompson.
Ruffalo, whose Hulk was last seen flying off in a plane at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, said of his character: "He’s enjoying his life. He’ll be damned if he’s going to go back to Banner."
Taika Waititi directs the movie, and became a Hall H legend last year with his Thor mockumentary. He followed that up with a well-received first trailer in April.
In addition to the trailer, fans were treated to several extended scenes from the film, including Thor meeting the Grandmaster (Goldblum), which built to scenes of the hero teaming with Loki (Hiddleston), images of lasers firing, Hulk fighting a giant Fenrir wolf, and more. (And yes, the Hulk speaks.)
On Saturday, Marvel also released a new poster:
