Watch | MCU's first female villain Hela brings chills in 'Thor: Ragnarok'

Thor going up against an old friend "from work," isn't the only highlight in the first official teaser trailer for Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok.  Marvel Studios' first main female villain, Asgardian goddess of death Hela makes her presence and badassery known, thanks to the chilling portrayal of actress Cate Blanchett. Blanchett also sports the classic headgear designed by legendary comics artist Jack Kirby. 

Directed by Taika Waititi from a script by Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost and Stephany Folsom and Eric Pearson, Thor: Ragnarok picks up after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron. It opens in the Philippines on November 3.

In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) 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 new threat, the ruthless Hela (Cate Blanchett). But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo).

If that isn’t enough, feast your eyes on the Asgardian god in his gladiatorial garb in a brand new poster below!

The film also stars Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
