Thor: Ragnarok - 10 Reasons To Be Excited

Ragnarok and roll.

Marvel Studios

Thor: Ragnarok had its work cut out at Comic-Con with an impressive Justice League trailer to compete with, but Marvel Studios managed to conjure some extra excitement for the God of Thunder's return.

Ragnarok will mark Chris Hemsworth's third solo outing as the hammer-wielding demigod, and it's easily his most anticipated to date.

The movie promises to be a real game-changer for Thor and the realm of Asgard, and will lead into the events of next year's hero-packed Avengers: Infinity War.

It wouldn't be a Thor film without Loki, and Tom Hiddleston's God of Mischief is indeed back for another outing, alongside all-new cast members such as Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban and Creed actress Tessa Thompson.

Cate Blanchett will portray Ragnarok's big bad, death goddess Hela, while Mark Ruffalo will compete with Thor for the spotlight as the Hulk.

Taika Waititi is directing the movie, and if the trailers are anything to go by, he has a thing for neon-drenched synthesizers and in-depth Norse mythology.

The Comic-Con trailer was the most revealing so far, and it gave us plenty more reasons to be excited about Thor: Ragnarok ahead of its release in October.
