Thor goes Gladiator in the first Ragnarok trailer.

The Thor: Ragnarok marketing machine continues to hype up the movie, and today it gave us our first look at some footage – not just still photos – in the teaser trailer.

In it, we learn that Hela (Cate Blanchett) will serve as our main villain, and we see her “destroy” Asgard, break the hammer of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and send our hero away to a planet ruled by Jeff Goldblum‘s Grandmaster, who imprisons him in a fight-to-the-death-style arena. Is he fighting for his freedom? Well, probably – that’s how these things work, after all.

The trailer doesn’t tell us a whole lot more – it’s got a few out-of-context shots of various characters thrown in that fans can speculate about – and that’s a good thing. A trailer like this hypes audiences up and doesn’t reveal anything too spoiler-y.

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled to hit theaters on November 3, 2017.
