Next month’s Thor: Ragnarok sees the return of Thor and his trickster brother, Loki, to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The two will yet again have to put aside their differences and fight side by side to save Asgard from the forces of Hela, Goddess of Death. A new clip from the movie has been released online, teasing the unique brotherly bond between the two demigods. The clip shows Thor making peace with the divide between himself and his brother, before taking down a squadron of unidentified enemies using Loki’s least favourite plan.
Check out the new clip below.

It’s easy to see why Loki’s not such a fan of Thor’s ‘Get Help’ plan! The clip gives us a look at the more humorous tone director Taika Waititi is injecting into Ragnarok with this fun little bit of character-building, hinting at the brothers’ relationship from before Loki turned on Thor (and if that was Thor’s battle tactic, it’s no wonder Loki resents him!).
The sleek, space-age look of their surroundings indicate this clip is taking place in the Grandmaster’s palace on Sakaar. Thor’s “humiliating” tactic may therefore be part of the brothers’ plan to escape the planet to return to Asgard and confront Hela. But after their battle with Hela is done, will the brothers stay true to their word and never see each other again? Or will the events of next year’s Avengers: Infinity War throw Thor and Loki back into one another’s paths?
Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, and Jeff Goldblum.
Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November 3rd.
5 Marvel Supporting Characters Who Need To Join The ‘Thor’ World
Now that Thor: Ragnarok is behind us, it’s time for fans to start speculating about where the God of Thunder is likely to go next! As things continue to change for Thor moving forward, it’s only fitting that the world around him starts to expand. Ragnarok is introducing newcomers Hela and Skurge to the Marvel Cinematic Universe family, but there’s always room for more expansion.
Thor has a rich group of supporting characters that have either gone on adventures with him or faced him on the battlefield. Some of Thor’s main companions, like Lady Sif and the Warriors Three, have already been introduced and become fan-favorite characters for MCU viewers. Given that Marvel Studios seems to like shaking things up, it seems likely that some of Thor’s lesser-known acquaintances will end up on the big screen soon enough.
