Thor’s next adventure in Thor: Ragnarok looks to be a huge one for the Norse god. After spending several films relying on that good ol’ hammer Mjolnir, he’ll be without it, forced to rely on his own strength and wit. However, if the trailers are any indication, it looks like he’ll be having a whole lot of fun along the way.

Of course, while Thor is always great on his own, one of the big plusses this time around is the involvement of Hulk. Hulk has been around the MCU from the very beginning, though since the first film starring Edward Norton, he’s been restricted to team-up movies — so seeing him with just one Avenger this time around is something we can’t wait for.

However, they won’t be the only two Avengers we’ll be seeing. As hinted at in the post-credits scene in Doctor Strange, Stephen Strange himself will at least have an appearance. If you didn’t want to wait around for the actual movie to hit theaters to see him, then you’re in luck! In a recently-released international trailer, we see Doctor Strange, and even hear some voice-over from actor Benedict Cumberbatch, predicting that destiny has “dire” plans for Thor.

In true Thor fashion, he replies with “I have dire plans for destiny.” Never try to match wits with an Asgardian.

Below is the official synopsis for Thor: Ragnarok:

“Thor’s world is about to explode in Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok. His devious brother, Loki, has taken over Asgard, the powerful Hela has emerged to steal the throne for herself and Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe. To escape captivity and save his home from imminent destruction, Thor must first win a deadly alien contest by defeating his former ally and fellow Avengers… The Incredible Hulk!”
