    Was going to post this myself this morning when I saw it, but I was in a hurry and figured someone else would.

    Can't wait to see this.

    Looks good, just hope it's not a comedy like I've heard!

    Thor should not be funny, there is absolutely nothing funny about Ragnorok!

    So we'll see?

    That's the impression I got, thus the blood running down his face from his own scalp.

    By the way, it was great seeing Jeff Goldblum in this teaser.

    "We know each other - he's a friend from work..." Hmmm. Thor becomes Spider-Man.

    I think the film will be pretty serious given the subject matter but there will be moments of levity like in any real life situation like that. Otherwise you get B vs S. It's like the Avengers films, there were a couple of jokes in there. I wouldn't worry as they will get the balance right.

    Every MCU film balances the drama, action and comedy. And they have always done it well. I expect this to be no exception.

    I expect that there's ZERO chance of that song appearing in the movie - they probably paid dearly just to have it in a trailer! :laugh:

    Frankly, if all that buildup is just to have Thor fight The Hulk, I'm somewhat disappointed.

    It's a combination of two stories - the Norse Ragnarok and the 'Planet Hulk' storyline that ran in the Hulk comics (where they shot the Hulk off into space so as to not be a danger to anyone and he landed on this planet where he was forced to fight like a gladiator).

    They are two unique stories but they have cleverly combined them in the sense (I think) that Hela wiping out Asgaard is the main story, Ragnarok, but to do this she has to get rid of Thor so she orchestrates some situation where he is placed on that planet and used as a gladiator. And that's where the 'Planet Hulk' things come in. But Thor needs to get back and stop Hela. So the Thor vs Hulk thing is just a really cool concept but it isn't the main storyline.

    Compared to "Fate of the Furious', 'Ragnarok' looks like a Frederick Wiseman documentary

    Looks quality, like a proper comic book - and not afraid of it.

    I too wonder about the Planet Hulk situation...

    First, Planet Hulk, would beat Thor like a rag doll. Thor only can fight off the Hulk when he has a hammer anyways. I find the depowering of the Hulk to be upsetting in general. By the end of Planet Hulk series he was so angry he could exert as much power as The Sentry, which is something like 10,000 super nova suns.

    If they could make some truly amazing Hulk movies, it would be an at least 3 part series based on the God Bomb/Killer arc that was recent, and absolutely baller.

    There's a great animated movie of this.

    Loved the first one.

    But this trailer is the silliest looking mess Ive ever seen. There is a difference between Thor having humor and out and out campiness. What a friggin joke.

    Gladiotor meets Wonder Woman meets the Three Stooges.

    Was my favorite Marvel character. Geesh.

    Was that seriously Jeff Goldblum cast as some nordic warrior?? W..T...F..? Who produced this thing? Mel Brookes...??

    Jeff Goldblum is playing The Grand Master, not a warrior. He's one of the Elders - like Benicio del Toro's character The Collector. He's old and eccentric, certainly no warrior.

    And there's only one comedic element to the trailer which otherwise looks fairly dark. People are acting like the comedy is something new for the Marvel films when its been there pretty much from the beginning.

    And the comedy was there in the original comic. Hogan the Grim, Falstagg the Dashing, the Voluminous Volstagg, not to mention a lot of Loki antics and even the lame doctor turning into the Mighty Thor. . . .

    Guess I liked the first movie better than I would the comic book then. Ill pass.

    If there's comedy, I'm IN!
    I've sat through the first two a couple of times...
    if it wasn't for the girl from "2 Broke Girls" in the second one, I'd be snoring through it!

    It feels more 'spacey' and sci-fi than the original which had more of a Gods of Valhalla ancient feel...if that makes sense.

    Oh, I much prefer the live version to the studio single version.

    Does anyone else think the fonts used in that trailer look like 1970's discorama?
