Thor Goes Full Guardians of the Galaxy In First Ragnarok Trailer
The first teaser trailer for Thor: Ragnarok (aka Thor 3) is here, and it feels weirdly like… a Guardians of the Galaxy trailer?
With his sarcastic voice-over (“it’s a long story”) and frat boy enthusiasm (“He’s a friend from work!”), Thor is starting to bear a striking resemblance to Peter Quill. Plus, Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song,” which is featured prominently in the Thor trailer, would fit in anywhere on Guardians of the Galaxy‘s famously vintage soundtrack.
GotG began as the quirky offshoot of the Marvel cinematic universe. But due to its overwhelming success, is the tail now wagging the dog? It could just be a coincidence of circumstances: Director Taika Waititi has said he wanted to highlight star Chris Hemsworth‘s comic abilities.
Taking place after The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor: Ragnarok finds our hero imprisoned forced to fight his friend The Hulk in a gladiatorial duel. He must escape in time to stop new supervillian Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying Asgaard.
