“Thor: Ragnarok” Trailers Go Full Jack Kirby + Screenshots

The Thor: Ragnarok trailers are fucking bananas. There’s no other way for me to describe them.

He’s not aiming for the cosmic awe of Guardians of the Galaxy, instead opting to mine the roots of the material for all their goofy and wild glory. Mix the first trailer’s excellent use of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” with the second trailer’s heavy synth track Magic Sword’s “In the Face of Evil” and we might just have the most outlandish Marvel movie yet. I can’t wait.

And god damn, that last shot. Surtur!

Here are some screenshots of this insane trailer campaign.
