The 'Thor: Ragnarok' Trailer Has Cate Blanchett's Villainy, Led Zeppelin And A Green 'Friend'

The “Thor” series is taking a more “Guardians of the Galaxy” approach to its third outing, if the new trailer released Monday is any indication. The tone of “Thor: Rangarok” appears to be comparably boisterous, using Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” to pit evil Jeff Goldblum, evil Tom Hiddleston and evil-er Cate Blanchett against a captured Chris Hemsworth. It’s all building toward a showdown between Thor and the Hulk, aka a “friend from work.”

Directed by Taika Waititi, who is known for quirky indie movies like “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” and “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Thor: Ragnarok” opens Nov. 3. Here’s the official synopsis, per a Disney press release:

Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok — the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization — at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger — the Incredible Hulk!
