A new clip from Thor: Ragnarok is here in which Cate Blanchett’s Hela obliterates Thor’s iconic hammer. Have a look at it below.
Thor: Ragnarok is so close we can taste it. Taika Waititi’s new Marvel movie had us very intrigued and it’s now receiving very positive reviews from many reputable outlets (Empire, The Telegraph, Den of Geek). The film’s trailer already had me interested in the movie, which looked unlike any of the other Thor movies (thank Odin). In one of those trailers, we witnessed Cate Blanchett’s Hela completely obliterate Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir, yet that scene was originally in what looked to be a New York alleyway. The scene has since been changed to a field in Norway because, in Waititi’s own words, “alleyways aren’t cool”. You can have a look a the new Thor: Ragnarok clip, entitled “Kneel”, below (courtesy of IGN).
This clip marks Thor and Loki’s first encounter with Cate Blanchett’s Hela and it certainly raises the stakes for our favourite Asgardians. Having Thor without his hammer, which is his main source of power, is an interesting approach and means that we’ll get to see what the hero is really made of. I’m also a fan of Thor’s short hair look.
Thor: Ragnarok has been pitched as a Thor and Hulk buddy movie set in space and that sounds absolutely delightful. The more of Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk/Bruce Banner the better. They’ve taken elements of Planet Hulk’s storyline (Greg Pak’s brilliant comic series, which I highly recommend) and interweaved it with Thor’s Ragnarok plotline. Fingers crossed they’ve been able to blend them together well and have managed to formulate a fascinating plot.
The first two Thor movies have their fans, yet it has to be said that they’ve been the weakest films in the Marvel movie canon, especially Thor: The Dark World, which was a bit of a mess. Hopefully, Hemsworth and Waititi have managed to make Thor relevant again.
Thor: Ragnarok is set to hit UK cinemas on October 27th. It’s only a few days away!
