‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Trailer: It’s the End of the World as We Know It, and Thor Feels Fine — Watch

Taika Waititi's take on the Norse superhero hits theaters this November.

“Thor: Ragnarok”

Now that Taika Waititi has taken the reins, the world of “Thor” looks a lot more fun — even if the apocalypse is imminent. A new trailer for “Thor: Ragnarok” just premiered at San Diego Comic-Con, and like the first it suggests that the “What We Do in the Shadows” and “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” director is taking things in a new direction. Watch below.

Chris Hemsworth returns as the crown prince of Asgard alongside Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins; Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, and Karl Urban are all newcomers to the Vikingverse. “You can expect a Taika-esque tone,” Waititi said during a reddit AMA last year. “They’ve been very accepting of my style.” This new footage suggests he wasn’t kidding, which comes as a relief.

Following “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “Thor: Ragnarok” is the last of three Marvel movies being released in 2017. It arrives in theaters on Nov. 3.
