ANSWER: It's actually the name for the 'end of the world' in Norse mythology

It's also known as "Twilight of the Gods" and involves the Norse gods fighting and ultimately dying, leaving the world submerged underwater to start all over again

Sounds like there's going to be loads of fighting in this movie...

Thor: Ragnarok is in cinemas 27 October. Watch the epic trailer here.
