So as you read this the Comic Con International: San Diego has just completed its third and quite possibly its biggest day. When this convention happens we get a bevy of trailers to post for you depending on the property and if its something that works along the lines of our geek and media interests. A few months ago we got a teaser for “Thor: Ragnarok” which as you saw will find the Odinson teaming up with the Incredible Hulk. A few hours ago they released the Official Trailer and this was some awesome stuff to come back from the Iron Maiden and Ghost show to share with you. Take a look. I’ve also shared some premise and casting for good measure, but you know that already.
After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor, held captive on the planet Sakaar without his hammer, must win a gladiatorial duel against an old friend — the Hulk — in order to return to Asgard in time to stop the villainous Hela and the impending Ragnarök, the doom of the Asgardian civilization.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: For some reason the Thor films in the MCU have not been as “fun” of a ride as some of the other ones and perhaps its because they were taking themselves a little too seriously for some reason. Marvel has shown that elements of humor often work well to propel the narrative and we’ve seen this in both of the Guardians films and most recently in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”. I liked what I saw in the teaser trailer and now its only been compounded with added interest. This does this look like a thrill ride and a whole new bunch of characters to keep that MCU expanding make an appearance, there is nothing wrong with that. This will be the perfect closing up for the year of Marvel movies. You readers can let me know what you think down in the comments below. See you next time.
