It’s been four years since Chris Hemsworth flexed his muscles in a standalone Thor film.

So it’s little wonder that fans have been counting down the days until Thor: Ragnarok hits cinemas - and this first teaser trailer has Marvel geeks freaking out!

The third film in the franchise sees poor Thor stripped of his beloved magical hammer Mjolnir after baddie Hela (Cate Blanchett) destroys it.

That’s right, she destroys the un-destroyable.

Hela also sets her sights on obliterating Thor’s homeland of Asgard, which we see ablaze at one point in the trailer.

And later in the footage, something even more unthinkable happens: Thor cuts his hair off.

We honestly don’t know which is worse!

We also see the return of the Thor’s dastardly half-brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Thor’s “friend from work”, the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo).
