Marvel fans all over are falling all over themselves getting ready to catch the latest part of the MCU with the impending release of Thor: Ragnarok. A major film release like that is bound to have tons of tie-in merchandise related to it.
Other than the two previously released LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets dedicated to the film – The Ultimate Battle for Asgard (76084) and Thor VS Hulk: Arena Clash (76088) – LEGO is now in the final preparations for the release of the highly anticipated video game sequel, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. Scheduled to be released across all major gaming consoles and PC starting November 14, the sequel also gives a nod to the Norse god of thunder in its latest video game trailer. What better way to hype the title and show that it also have elements of the latest MCU movie!
The trailers for Thor: Ragnarok have done a serviceable job of getting the gist of the film across. The prophesied downfall of Asgard is getting closer with the threat of the Fire Giant Surtur, and it is being accelerated by the Goddess of Death Hela making her own play for the throne of Odin.
The king of Asgard is actually somewhere on Earth while his adopted son Loki rules in his name and image. And after he gets lost somewhere in the galaxy trying to stop Hela, Thor must now escape the clutches of the game-obsessed Grandmaster and return home.
All this, and much more, can now be seen in the latest video game trailer released by WB Games. As it is intended to be, this latest trailer features a mashup of all the familiar characters, both in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and their comic book counterparts. It also highlights the many versions of Thor only seen in the comics. Among them are Frog-Thor, the alien Beta Ray Bill and the present comics female Thor (actually Jane Foster). Check out the trailer below.
The Ragnarok action sequences are played up in the trailer with its trademark blend of exciting Marvel action, and LEGO’s brand of humor. Just imagine Heimdall leaving a mark on Broadway.
Thor: Ragnarok comes out in cinemas stateside this Friday, November 3. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 with all of its cool stuff from Ragnarok, will be released on November 14 across major gaming platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam (PC) and the Nintendo Switch. Pre-order the Deluxe Edition today and you’ll get access the entire Season Pass content which includes 6 Level Packs, 4 Character Packs and an exclusive Giant Man LEGO minifigure.
