Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song has been used in the trailer for upcoming film Thor: Ragnarok.

The third movie in the Marvel’s Thor saga will hit the silver screen from November 3 and follows 2011’s Thor and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World.

And for the first trailer, the opening track from 1970’s Led Zeppelin III has been chosen to highlight the all-action clip.

Thor: Ragnarok features a star-studded cast which includes Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum.

The synopsis for the film reads: “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!”
