Both of the previous trailers released (see trailer 1 here and trailer 2 here), already saw battles between Thor and Hulk, but this new teaser gave us a little more footage on the “Main Event” between the two titans.
The teaser also gave an opportunity to show other battle footage from the film, including a brief glimpse of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), a shot of Hela (Cate Blanchett) as she battles against a group of soldiers on Asgard, and another snippet of Hela going head to head with Thor. The clip ends with Hulk knocking Thor across Grandmaster’s arena into a wall, and Grandmaster saying, “He’s a fighter!”
Thor Ragnarok was all over social media buzz last week with 57,000 new conversations, according to media-measurement firm ComScore and its PreAct service (source variety.com).
The studio also released a new poster on Aug. 24, in addition to new clips of Thor’s fight with Hulk on Aug. 26, once again, timed perfectly on the same day as Saturday’s fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. The social buzz on this movie is now up to 850k conversations as it prepares for its release on November 3rd.
