The new “Thor: Ragnarok” trailer has already gone viral and fans are speculating what new mysteries the Marvel universe holds. The trailer of the upcoming movie shows a footage of Thor and Doctor Strange, which is quite strange. Apparently, it appears like Doctor Strange is offering Thor some advice, possibly about his future. According to fans, this footage also indicates a prominent role for Doctor Strange in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Doctor Strange talks about Thor’s future

The international “Thor: Ragnarok” trailer brings forth a fresh footage from the film showing Doctor Strange conversing with Thor.

Though the trailer does not particularly showcase the topic of their discussion, it appears to be a conclusion of their talk that appeared in the post-credits scenes of the 2016 "Doctor Strange" film. If fans remember, that scene had Strange deciding to help Thor, who had come to the earth along with his brother Loki, looking for their father Odin. The new trailer does not confirm whether the doctor is able to help the superhero and his brother but it does show him uttering prophetic words. He tells Thor that he can sense a big change in his future. Addressing him as friend, he tells him that destiny has dire plans for him to which Thor responds confidently that he also has dire plans for destiny.

Hints at events in “Avengers: Infinity War”

While it is quite possible that Doctor Strange is talking about Thor’s faceoff with the evil Hela that will materialize in “Thor: Ragnarok,” it could also be possible that he is talking about other events that might take place in “Avengers: Infinity War.” It is speculated that Doctor Strange could make use of Time Stone to travel in future and then return to the present after figuring out Thanos’ plan for earth.

It might also be that he goes back in time to stop the encounter with the baddie. The fact that he knows something about Thor’s future links it to the Time Stone. Also, it is unlikely that the doctor would travel to Asgard to warn Thor about Hela.

Thor to face big challenges

While “Thor: Ragnarok” will indeed see the crown prince of Asgard taking on the merciless Hela but before that, he has to battle the Hulk.

He is being held on the other side of the universe at the Sakaar planet and does not have his hammer Mjolnir by his side. For the God of Thunder, it a race against time and it would be exciting to watch how does he defeat his adversary and ward away the destruction of his homeland.
