I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of the Thor movies, but this is the first time I’m excited to see one. The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok gave Thor a new, funky feel that promised a little more fun and a little less freaky dark elves. The second trailer? A blessing to geek-kind. In case you haven’t seen this thing of beauty from San Diego Comic Con, here’s the new trailer for Thor: Ragnarok.
Other than that funny sketch about what Thor and Bruce were doing during Civil War, the Ragnarok trailer is the first time we see what it’s like when those characters interact in dialogue. The result is pretty hilarious. Thor explains to Bruce that they recently had a fight, and Bruce asks “Did I win?” like a little kid that’s just beaten you at checkers without realizing it. Cut to Hulk slamming Thor into the arena wall in a blaze of rubble. Then Thor replies: “No, I won. Easily.” Bruce looks adorably confused while Thor looks as self-satisfied as he did in his first movie. Cocky little poop.
Later Thor tries to fist bump (where did he learn that?) and Bruce slaps his fist like he’s giving a high five. Geez, what a dork. Even The Other Guy is a dork. “Hulk like raging fire. Thor like smoldering fire.” My favorite scene with Bruce, however, is when Bruce is driving a ship and he pumps his fist in the air saying “YEAH!” like he’s just done the awesomest thing ever when at best he probably shot down a couple of aliens. Then RIGHT after that, for just a millisecond, we see a gratuitously shirtless Thor as he gazes dramatically into the camera. Like, okay, I appreciate the abs and all, but we get it. Chris Hemsworth is ripped.
Anyway, all the men (yes, including Loki) are dorks in this trailer and I love it.
