Cate Blanchett turns supervillain in the first look at Thor: Ragnarok

It offered glimpses of Hela, the movie's powerful new villain played by Cate Blanchett. We have already seen evidence of Thanos' murderous rampage in the MCU - some will remember the sad story of the death of Drax's family in Guardians of the Galaxy. That might explain the cheeky Easter egg hidden in the "Ragnarok" trailer. Hela takes over Asgard, despite efforts from Thor, his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Heimdall (Idris Elba).

2011's Thor and 2013's Thor: The Dark World tend to end up near the bottom of fans' rankings of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies so far, and their box office, while perfectly acceptable (over $1 billion combined, worldwide), hasn't been almost as vigorous as that of fellow Avengers like Iron Man and Captain America.

Thor Ragnarok is the third instalment of the Thor franchise after Thor of 2011 and Thor: The Dark World of 2013.

We then get a good look at just how bad Hela is, as Thor hurls Mjolnir at her, only for the goddess to catch it with ONE HAND, and crush it to bits! Sadly, none of them came to the big screen and both Thor movies were drab affairs compounded by weak plots and rather lifeless acting.

Comic fans will recognise this Gladiator Hulk from the Planet Hulk series.

Mark Ruffalo's Hulk makes an appearance for what Waititi recently described as a Midnight Run-esque romp with Chris Hemsworth's Thor, while Jeff Goldblum, with his Ziggy Stardust-y collars and sparkly pompadour, features as the wacky Grandmaster.

In the first seconds of the new trailer, Chris Hemsworth's Thor introduces himself to the audience while hanging down a lava pit. Directed by Taika Waititi, the film is slated to release on 3 November. The trailer also first reveals his bout against his "friend from work", no other than the Incredible Hulk.

Also starring Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander and Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled to reach United Kingdom cinemas on 27 October 2017 and USA big screens on 3 November.
