In the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon, the Thor movies tend to get overlooked in favour of Iron Man, Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy.

But Marvel Studios hasn’t forgotten the Odinson, and it’s bringing us a third helping of hammer-twirling, Asgardian-punching comic book action – this time in the form of a veritable Twilight of the Gods.

Here’s everything you need to know about the thunder god’s newest adventures in Midgard and beyond in Thor: Ragnarok.

Thor: Ragnarok trailer – epic smack down incoming!

The first teaser trailer has arrived and frankly it looks amazing.

In it we get a glimpse of Hela – the Norse goddess of death – confronting Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, and it does not go well for him or his hammer. Alas, poor Mjolnir, we hardly knew thee.

Hela invades Asgard (apparently singlehandedly), while Thor is taken prisoner by Valkyrie and the Grandmaster in order to fight in their arena.

We get a delicious new look at Tom Hiddleston’s Loki as well as Thor’s “friend from work”, Hulk.

Um, it looks like Mark Ruffalo’s big green character has different feelings.
