The first Thor: Ragnarok trailer is here: Thor! Hulk! Goldblum! And the greatest MCU line so far!

The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok is a whirlwind of science-fantasy vistas that wouldn't look out of place on a '70s soft-cover novel and unexpectedly hilarious reunions with old "friends". Watch the whole thing and see how Thor goes from favored son of Asgard to a gladiator fighting for the enjoyment of Jeff Goldblum. Well, the Grandmaster character portrayed by Jeff Goldblum, but it might as well just be Jeff Goldblum.

After nearly a decade of history, that "he's a friend from work" line is the greatest thing to come from a Marvel Cinematic Universe character's mouth. It could make up for how lame Thor's entire role was in Avengers: Age of Ultron all by itself.

Update: Marvel has put out a new poster for the movie, too. The green and orange is both otherworldly and pleasantly reminiscent of a tropical drink.
