The Revengers' Name Explained in Thor: Ragnarok Promo

The latest promotional video for Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok takes audiences behind the scenes of the anticipated sequel. In addition to explaining how Mark Ruffalo is essentially playing two characters (Hulk and Bruce Banner) in the film, and how Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie becomes part of Thor's entourage, it reveals the humorous reason the God of Thunder decides to call his makeshift team of heroes The Revengers.

As we've seen in dozens of trailers and commercials, after arriving on the planet Sakaar, Thor will assemble a team consisting of Loki, the Hulk and Valkyrie. Having been banished to the planet after an encounter with Hela, the founding member of the Avengers hopes his new team, The Revengers -- named as such because they all want to get revenge on... someone -- has what it takes to get back to Asgard, retake his home and prevent the arrival or Ragnarok.
