Will Marvel's god of thunder become the new king of Asgard? Probably not, but a new promo for Thor: Ragnarok sees him perched on his father's throne -- much to Hela's displeasure.
Although this new footage shows Chris Hemsworth's in the seat of power, it seems likely he isn't actually ruling in Odin's absence but instead merely trying to defend the realm against the usurper Hela. Cate Blanchett's goddess of death is clear about her intentions, though: She doesn't want to be queen of Asgard, she wants to destroy it.

In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.
Arriving Nov. 3, director Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
