VIDEO: Led Zeppelin classic featured in Thor: Ragnarock trailer

Led Zeppelin’s 1970 classic, “Immigrant Song”, is featured in the first trailer for the upcoming third movie in Marvel Studios' Thor franchise, "Thor: Ragnarok", due in theaters on November 3.

Directed by Taika Waititi, the film sees Thor held captive on the planet Sakaar without his hammer, while he must win a gladiatorial duel against old friend the Hulk in order to return to Asgard in time to stop Hela and the impending Ragnarök from ending civilization there.

The project stars Chris Hemsworth in the title role alongside an all-star cast that includes Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins, among others, with music by Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo.

“Immigrant Song” was the only single released from “Led Zeppelin III.” The tune peaked at No. 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100 while the album went to US sales of more than 6 million copies.

Led Zeppelin recently received notice that an appeal has been filed in the 2016 "Stairway To Heaven" copyright infringement lawsuit involving members Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.

A lawyer representing plaintiff Michael Skidmore has filed an appeal to the verdict from last June, when a Los Angeles federal court jury cleared the duo of any wrongdoing in the creation of their 1971 signature song against a claim by Skidmore on behalf of the estate and Trust of Spirit guitarist Randy California (Wolfe) that the acoustic introduction to “Stairway” was lifted from the group’s 1968 instrumental, “Taurus.”
