Loki And The Grandmaster Tease Thor In New Thor: Ragnarok Clip

Even the God of Thunder can't catch a break.

In Marvel's upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) learns that his adopted brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has been masquerading as their missing father Odin (played by Anthony Hopkins), a discovery that leads to plenty of unchecked governance in the world of Asgard. Things go from bad to worse when Hela the Asgardian Goddess of Death (Cate Blanchett) is released from captivity. When Thor gives his all in efforts to destroy the dark magic-wielding villain, Hela exiles him to Sakaar, the planet ruled by the eccentric and wicked Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum).

A newly released clip shows what happens when the Grandmaster gets Thor in his clutches, and what Loki does (and doesn't) do to try to save him. In the footage (courtesy of ComicBook.com), we see the Grandmaster speaking to Loki and a shackled-down Thor, before his flowing locks get lopped off, about the Asgardian god potentially fighting his "champion" in an arena battle. When the Grandmaster questions Thor about his title, Thor asks Loki for a little support, but Loki teases that he has "never met this man in my life." 

"Is he any kind of a fighter?" the Grandmaster then asks, to which Thor comments, "You take this thing out of my neck and I'll show you." The Grandmaster picks up on the cheeky comment and has a Loki-style jab of his own for Thor. "Aww, listen to that. He's threatening me," he quips. 

The Grandmaster then calls Thor "Sparkles" and refers to Asgard as both "As-place" and "As-berg," dialogue that highlights Goldbum's unmistakable acting idiosyncrasies and director Taika Waititi's keen sense of comedic timing. The scene as a whole gives Hemsworth and Hiddleston a chance to display their funny sides as well, even though one is restrained and the other seems completely uncontrolled. 

Take a look in the video above. 

Based on this new clip, the film's sprinkling of trailers, and other footage that has rolled out over the past few weeks, it's clear that Thor: Ragnarok will be the funniest installment in the Thor series–and perhaps in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. Early reviews call the film, which was voted the most anticipated fall movie of the year, hilarious, well-cast, and seriously enjoyable.

Thor: Ragnarok will rock into theaters on November 3.
