Thor Ragnarok Trailer Is An 80’s Neon Mind Melt

  • Marvel trailers always generate a bit of excitement here at What’s Trending Headquarters (Trendquarters), but this Thor Ragnarok trailer is on another level, all thanks to director Taika Waititi, the masterminds behind such masterpieces as Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do In The Shadows. Let’s break it down, not unlike Thor’s hammer Mjolonir breaks both enemies and social contracts.

    First off, the trailer is absolutely fierce, with the introduction of Cate Blanchett’s “Hela”, the Goddess of the Underworld created by comic book artist Walt Simonson in his legendary 80’s Thor run — we see Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster, and we see a certain green and hulking someone. Haha, can you guess!? Oh can you!? It’s The Hulk! Thor fights him in space! Comic book fans were thinking the Hulk’s disappearance could tie into the “Planet Hulk” storyline from the comics from a decade ago, and guess what— the fans were right! Good work… The Fans!
