Marvel Studios has made a habit of creating kick ass trailers to get the hype machines rolling on their films — they’ve almost perfected it as an art by now. One trailer in particular blew everyone away when it dropped, and now fans are hyped for Thor: Ragnarok to premiere later this year.
And now that trailer is the latest to receive the 8-bit treatment courtesy of JoBlo, setting all of those epic clashes, colorful settings, and the rocking Led Zeppelin song to a retro video game aesthetic. Check out the trailer above!
As always, these 8-bit trailers make us yearn for a playable Genesis or SNES video game based on the movie, but alas those days are gone. Still, Thor: Ragnarok would probably make a sweet beat ‘em up experience.
There are also some cool little easter eggs, such as the “Wanted” poster for Captain America and the “Missing” poster for Bruce Banner. As we all know, though, the Man Who Always Stays Angry makes a special appearance at the end of the trailer.
But the coolest part of this retro rendition of Thor: Ragnarok? It’s definitely the chip tune version of “Immigrant Song.” That song just bangs no matter what’s done to it.
Somehow, this video got us even more hyped for Thor: Ragnarok. We’re just counting the day away until it premieres November 3.

In Marvel Studio’s Thor Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first, he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
Thor Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay by Eric Pearson and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
