A Japanese trailer for Thor: Ragnarok features another Marvel superhero: none other than Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).

“I sense a great change in your future,” Strange tells the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) at the beginning of this international trailer. “Destiny has dire plans for you, my friend.” To which our titular hero smoothly responds, “I have dire plans for destiny.”

You may remember that Thor was seen asking for the mystical hero’s help in one of Doctor Strange‘s credit sequences. And if you missed the fun behind-the-scenes promo of said tag, which showed off the chemistry and comedic chops between Hemsworth and Cumberbatch, head HERE.

Thor: Ragnarok, also starring Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban and Anthony Hopkins, arrives in Australia on October 26 and will open in the U.S. on November 3.

Synopsis for Thor: Ragnarok:

In Marvel Studios’ “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!
