    --Spoilers Below--


    Or is he using something to shield himself from Surtur's fire attack.
    Thor is clearly impervious to normal fire...but hel fire is something special.
    Only Mjolnir would allow Thor to withstand such an attack.

    I've looked carefully at the HD version of those few seconds of Thor vs Surtur.
    If you scrub back and forth slowly you can clearly see something spinning in front of Thor to block the flames…it's Mjolnir ("a weapon that has no equal" - Odin) ;\-\)

    I'm really excited to see that because it leads me to believe Taika has done his homework on Thor.
    The circular spinning Mjolnir block is something classic Thor (volume 1 Thor) - did often, but rarely if ever in modern comics.

    Branagh's Thor also used an equally classic spinning Mjolnir, but as an awesome attack on multiple targets.
    Hopefully we'll get to see that attack again in the future.

    This movie "Thor Ragnarok" is winning me over \:\-\) I had, and to some extent still do have concerns about the humor, short hair, no hammer for most of the movie and Hulk upstaging Thor…but the Visuals, Color, Scope, Cast and everything else we've seen from the trailers and tv spots seem "Incredible" and "Mighty" \:\-\)

He was immune to Hell Fire when GR used it on him in an Avengers issue but seemed to work some in Uncanny Avengers when it was used again.

Surtur's fire has hurt Thor in the past and is a unique sort of thing, which is what you are getting at. From the clip we see it is pretty clear Thor is blocking the attack in some way. Given the long hair and standard garb this may be happening earlier in the film and it may be Mjolnir.

From some reports it looks like Thor is running around trying to keep things at bay that Odin's loss has freed. Which sounds pretty cool, wish the movie had a longer run time to play with the concept more. I feel it is going to be racing quite a bit.

The creature does not seem to be as large as the one Hulk is jumping at in the trailer either.

Look Raist bunnies...
