The Marvel's mighty god of thunder may not be the mightiest Avenger after all, as Thor learns to his own dismay in a new promo for Thor: Ragnarok.
In the brief scene, which further highlights the humor of director Taika Waititi's film, Chris Hemsworth's Thor attempts to launch a spaceship on Sakaar, only to be told by the computer that voice activation is required. Repeated attempts -- "god of thunder," "prince of Asgard" and, finally, "strongest Avenger" -- are frustratingly denied.
Enter Bruce Banner, who tries his password, "Banner," which the on-board artificial intelligence immediately accepts, responding, "Welcome, strongest Avenger," leaving Thor with a little egg on his face: "Uh ... what?"
The scene is interspersed with fight scenes featuring Thor and Hela, Thor and the Hulk, Hulk and Fenris, and, most dramatic of them all, Hulk and the fire demon Surtur.
Thor: Rangarok is on course for a big North American opening, well ahead of its two predecessors, 2011's Thor and 2013's Thor: The Dark World.
Arriving Nov. 3, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
