The latest TV spot for Thor: Ragnarok is keen to press home just how visually stunning the movie promises to be. Thor: Ragnarok is the third solo movie for the God of Thunder in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is hotly-anticipated following a strong presence at this year's San Diego Comic Con and a rapturously received trailer - which showcased both the impressive scope of the film and the comedic exchanges between the central characters.
The movie brings together Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), who have been missing from the MCU since Avengers: Age of Ultron, and sees the duo duke it out in a gladiatorial style arena in a story that promises to incorporate elements of the Planet Hulk comics. Additionally, Thor's homeland of Asgard is set to be invaded by the villainous Hela (Cate Blanchett) and it seems that Odin's son must assemble a band of warriors - including Tom Hiddleston's Loki - to drive her out.
A new TV spot (see above) offers precious little in the way of fresh footage and is essentially a condensed version of Ragnarok's second theatrical trailer. The clip does, however, give fans a blow by blow taste of the visuals that will be on offer when the film is finally released in November. The clash between Thor and Hulk is showcased here, as is the CGI power of Hela and Thor's awesome "God of Thunder" moment in the film.
Judging by the footage released so far, you have to imagine that Ragnarok might just be the most visually stunning Thor offering yet and arguably even one of the most attractive in the entire MCU canon. The fact that the footage is tempered with quality dialogue also suggests that this won't be a style over substance affair, either.
Some fans may be approaching the third Thor movie with a small amount of trepidation, as both the original film and The Dark World are among the least revered offerings in the franchise as fan as Marvel fans are concerned.
However, with The Hulk joining the already incredibly popular duo of Thor and Loki, Ragnarok promises to be a cut above the previous two offerings - with plenty of eye-popping action sequences, hilarious one liners and perhaps even a villain to rival Loki himself in the form of Hela.
