Watch as Led Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant Song’ Powers New ‘Thor’ Trailer
In the movie, Thor is imprisoned on the opposite side of the galaxy from his hammer as time ticks away on his opportunity to get back to his home world of Asgard to stop the ruthless Hela from ending civilization there.
"I know what you're thinking: How did this happen?," Thor ominously says. "Well, it's a long story."
What unfolds next is sure to be surprising for old-school comic-book fans. He's seen preparing to face off against the Incredible Hulk, a fellow Avenger who is now – to the obvious surprise of Thor – a former ally. ("We know each other!" Thor says at first. "He's a friend from work!") Actors Jeff Goldblum, Tom Hiddleston and Cate Blanchett make up the evil cabal lined up against the captured Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth.
"Immigrant Song," which originally arrived on 1970's Led Zeppelin III, has earlier appeared in 2003's School of Rock and 2007's Shrek the Third. Since then, Zeppelin-related soundtrack items have become something of a trend. "Good Times Bad Times" was in both 2010's The Fighter and 2013's American Hustle, while "When the Levee Breaks" appeared in 2012's Argo and 2015's The Big Short, among others.
Thor: Ragnarok, directed by Taika Waititi, is due in theaters on Nov. 3.
