Such is the case in Thor: Ragnarok, where it’s immediately clear in the latest trailer that fate hasn’t been so kind to him:
In the aftermath of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) left the team to do some investigating of his own. However, he gets more than he bargained for as the goddess Hela sends her armies to take over Asgard, leaving him exiled to the distant planet of Sakaar. After being forced to duel his old friend Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), the two eventually team up and work with some unlikely allies to return Asgard to its rightful owners.
Ragnarok is the latest in Marvel’s “Phase 3” films, with it and 2018’s Black Panther leading up to Avengers: Infinity War, which Marvel has already promised will shake up the status quo in drastic ways.
Thor: Ragnarok arrives in theaters nationwide on November 3.
