First trailer for 'Thor: Ragnarok' sets new records for Marvel and Disney

First trailer for 'Thor: Ragnarok' sets new records for Marvel and Disney

She often attempts to extend her rule of Hel into Asgard, which is probably why we see her attacking Asgard in the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok.

Unfortunately, Ragnarok didn't maange to topple Stephen King's It from the overall record top spot, after that film recently notched up 197 million views in the 24 hours after it was released on March 29. The feat is doubly impressive when you consider Disney is home to blockbuster franchises like "Star Wars", along with popular animation company Pixar and the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe.

For example, it could be looked at as more evidence that trailers are, in general, getting more views more quickly these days - Stephen King's It had nearly 200 million views in its first 24 hours, for example, with Disney's Beauty and the Beast getting 127.6 million in the same time period.

Thor is back and its trailer super action packed.

It also features the first female lead villain in a Marvel film, Cate Blanchett as Hela. Having left Earth, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) now comes home to Asgard and finds trouble.

As the Thor trailer rolls, fans can watch as Batman becomes more agitate.

Still: Thor: Ragnarok came closer to beating the current trailer record than any other Disney property, and quickly dominated social media thanks to its spectacularly fun, stylized first look. After all, Thor: Ragnarok premieres on the same month as Warner Bros.' Justice League.

"Thor: Ragnarok" is directed by "What We Do in the Shadows" and "The Hunt for the Wilderpeople" helmer Taika Waititi as per Entertainment Weekly.

The sometimes cheesy, often self-serious Mighty Thor was never a particularly amusing character in the comics.

Thor: Ragnarok hits United Kingdom cinemas 27 October. In a real doozy of footage, fans get a good look at many key elements from the upcoming film starring Chris Hemsworth as he takes on both Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the exiled Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Ruler of the Underworld Hera (Cate Blanchett).
