Director Taika Waititi and Thor: Ragnarok's principle actors have talked about how the film will have more comedic elements than the previous Thor or Marvel films.

Loki actor Tom Hiddleston told MTV International that how the film all comes together is what he's most excited about.

"Taika Waititi's vision is awesome," the English actor said. "In Norse mythology, Ragnarok means 'the end of everything' -- the end of the world, the universe, time and space, so the stakes are quite high. Without revealing too much, the way that happens; the way it begins, it is just spectacular."

In the Marvel Comics, Ragnarok's events happened when the Asgardian race has been forced into a new start. Thor eventually defeats Hela (in the film, played by Cate Blanchett) to prevent Ragnarok's chaos from happening. We still don't know if the film will follow the canon, but it's likely we'll see a similar plot.

In the film, Thor loses his hammer and gets exiled to the other side of the universe, where he's forced into a gladitorial contest that pits him against The Hulk. He's on a race against time to stop Hela from letting the end of the Asgardian civilization and end of his homeworld (Ragnarok).

Thor: Ragnarok is scheduled to hit theaters on November 3, 2017.
