[Watched the footage? Check out our Trailer 2 Analysis Article.]

Marvel brought new footage from Thor: The Dark World to the 2013 Comic-Con, in order to keep building hype for the next installment in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (which began with Iron Man 3). The Thor sequel was directed by Alan Taylor – a former co-showrunner on HBO’s Game of Thrones – and will delve further into the mythology/history of the Nine Realms than its predecessor.

The newly-released Dark World trailer features some of the material that was shown at Comic-Con, which includes more scenes with the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) reunited with his human love Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), fan-favorite Asgardians like Heimdall (Idris Elba) and Sif (Jaimie Alexander) – and, of course, everyone’s favorite trouble-making “god,” Loki (Tom Hiddleston).

 To refresh your memory, here is the official synopsis for Thor: The Dark World:

Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself.  In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness.  Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Among other things, the second Dark World trailer provides a sneak peek at new cast addition Christopher Eccelston’s vocal mannerisms as Malekith the Accursed, while teasing the rocky interactions between Loki and his step-brother. We learned more about the Thor-Loki dynamic in particular, during our visit to the Thor: The Dark World set.

Much has been made when it comes to Taylor’s more tangible and grounded approach to constructing the Thor Universe – which features a more even ratio of fantasy sets versus CGI than director Kenneth Branagh’s first movie. The latest Dark World footage also suggests that the humor from Taylor’s darker and grittier installment actually might feel more organic to the proceedings – compared to the fish-out-of-water comedy in Branagh’s film (see: Thor’s Indiana Jones-style casual takedown of a massive enemy in the trailer’s conclusion).

Screen story credit for Thor: The Dark World belongs to Robert Rodat (creator of Falling Skies) and the late Don Payne (Thor), with the script having been co-written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely – the duo that penned Captain America: The First Avenger – and Christopher Yost (The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes TV series). The new trailer doesn’t shed too much additional light on the story, beyond the basic details – hopefully, the final payoff will prove worth the buildup and mystery.

  1. WOW!!

    I try not to get excited about trailers any more, but this looks amazing. It seems to have everything it needs to be an great sequel and an awesome story.
    This very well could be the CBM of the year right here!

    • I’m trying not to get too excited. I’m sick and tired of being disappointed by movies this year. :)

      • Word!

    • It looks pretty silly next to Man of Steel if you ask me. Still worth checking out, but not quite Man of Steel quality.

      • the trailer actually kind of reminded me of Man of Steel

        • Asgard has a similar look and feel to Krypton; even Thor’s outfit is similar to Supes’ but I think MoS will win in terms of aesthetic quality. Thor may have an easier story.

        • Exactly why all the re-shoots and composer change stuff began right around the time the MoS pre-screenings were happening.

          Compare this trailer to the original trailer and you can see directly the MoS influence.

          I’ve said it before, I’ll keep saying it:

          MoS = Quality Control.

          We are getting a better Thor movie now than we would have had MoS not have been made.

          That shot of Thor making everyone “trip” with his hammer is gone, and you’ll notice Thor now makes craters when he lands.

          • dude no way

            the filming for thor was done before christmas, and they haven’t made re-shoots of the whole movie!

            MoS had some amazing fighting sequences, but it lacked BIG TIME character wise.

            Thor is gonna be a better movie than MoS

          • All marvel movies do reshoots bro. They are scheduled even before principal filming happens. Avengers, IM3 and this all did reshoots 4-5 months after filming wrapped.

            And MOS isn’t quality control. It is the most critically panned superhero movie of the year thus far. Marvel has their style locked down. I don’t think they give a damn about what other studios do

            • And the most critically panned superhero movie of the years is RIPD.

            • @TheMightyThor @deezy

              Sorry, but you are both wrong.

              Yes, all movies do re-shoots. They happen during post production and they take about a week, tops.

              According to tweets from the cast, the extent of the re-shoots was something that took all of them by surprise.

              Jamie Alexander tweeted directly that she wasn’t prepared for it, and had to go back to the gym.

              The re-shoots by the way, lasted all day and night for nearly the entire month of June. Far more extensive and involving then what re-shoots are supposed to entail.

              Marvel knows better. They saw the action images that MoS produced and adjusted accordingly. Otherwise, you could potentially have people saying – “Compared to MoS, that was pretty weak.” Heck, that’s going on in this thread right now but I have a feeling it’s just people wanting to antagonize at this point. Either way, it’s not something you want people saying when your competitor is about to drop Batman/Superman to go directly against your product.

              I know the last thing a Marvelite wants to do is give MoS credit, but hey… it is what it is.

              Deny and argue these statements all you want, I’m standing by this one:

              We are potentially getting a better Thor movie now then the movie that was originally shot, and we have MoS to thank for it.

              If you want to continue “Marvel doesn’t care what DC does” you need to leave, attend a Business 101 class, and then get back to us.

              • When you call someone a marvelite, thats when your argument flies out of the window. You literally have no basis for what you are saying. Every Marvel movie has had reshoots. Jamie Alexander got injured during filming hence her particular reshoots took longer. She tweeted this as well. I actually liked MOS. Didnt think it was particularly special but it was entertaining.

                Marvel has 2 of the top 5 grossing movies of all time. By the time Avengers 2 rolls about, they will pass Harry Potter 2 for the biggest box office franchise of all time. Yeah they keep tabs on their competition i’m sure but i honestly doubt they are biting their nails. Their fanbase is set.

                • Yeah, this is a Marvel page… so referring to fans as Marvelites is antagonizing, I’ll admit to that.

                  However, I’m not basing this on nothing, here you go:

                  FACT: These were not typical re-shoots. The cast was under the impression that they were done with all principle photography, hence Jamie Alexander’s “surprise” that she had to go back to the gym

                  FACT: The rumblings about the re-shoots and change in composer and possibly director coincided with the MoS pre-screenings.

                  It’s all just a theory, but if you put 2 and 2 together-

                  Marvel had a rep check out MoS at a pre-screening. That rep went back to Marvel, and probably said something along the lines of “yeah, we can’t possibly display Thor like this immediately following this movie.”

                  In other words: we can’t have this movie follow that movie. It needs some major remodeling, such as a change in composer… and re-shoots (re-made more like it) that last all month, day and night.

                  Now, I don’t expect everyone to get behind this idea, especially on a Marvel page… but as many of you are aware I’m not afraid to share an opinion, no matter how unpopular.

                • @ Deezy

                  Last I’ll say about this, you wrote:

                  “Their (Marvel’s) fanbase is set.”

                  Exactly why you don’t want to lose any of those fans to your competitor because your competitor offers something that you don’t. Make sure that your movie can offer the same things as your competitors’ movie and your less likely to lose money from people “switching sides.”

                  • @Dr Mindbender

                    So making the fantasy setting of Asgard more like a real place and having sequences and tone (and hell, even orchestral music and visual style) similar to MOS in order to stop having such bright, almost cartoony movies like much of Phase 1 (other than Cap’s film, which looked almost grey a lot of the time)?

                    I can buy that if that’s what you mean. Haven’t seen this new trailer yet but just from the still images, that’s the vibe I’m getting.

                    Not that it’s a bad thing. I didn’t much like MOS but visually and musically, it impressed me.

                    • Hey Dazz.

                      What you said to an extent, possibly.

                      I’m thinking more along the lines that Thor is supposed to be Marvel’s Superman.

                      If Thor is supposed to be Marvel’s Superman, you better make damn sure that he is comparable to the actual Superman.

                    • Thor is Marvel’s Thor, and that’s all there is to it. I’m not sure why you insist on injecting MoS into the conversation?

                    • Hey Filth.

                      Thor is Marvel’s Thor. Yes, that’s the best way to look at it…

                      …if that were the only way it get’s looked at.

                      I didn’t bring up MoS, I responded to another observation.

                      Look at it this way: it would be an extremely smart business play to actually time your re-shoots right around the release your competitors movie to know exactly what you are up against.

                      It’s really not rocket science.

                    • I guess there’s always going to be a DC vs Marvel element to anything they both do, but I think it’s Marvel who’s looking in their rear view mirror at DC.

                      In other words, I don’t think they’re competing directly, movie for movie. I think it’s more broad than that, and in that case, Marvel is clearly in the lead with the amount of quality, high-grossing movies they have made and are going to make in their PLANNED universe. Just my opinion.

              • It’s far more likely that the re-shoots are connected to the Avengers 2 script which was handed to the studio sometime in May (first draft was “almost done” at the end of april)at the earliest.

                It’s the next film the character will be in and the re-shoots took place just after the script was finished, you do the math.

          • pretty sure making anything better and more realistic than the first thor movie is why it looks the way it does. Practical effects, sets and the like are better the K.B’s blue screen technique that killed a lot of the last movie’s realism. Also a shoddy origin story didn’t help either. MOS has nothing to do with this, except maybe they way the trailer is cut, but to be fair, mos didn’t make the money they expected and isn’t the giant hit the studio was hoping for, so to use it as any sort of reference point as such is ignorant fanboyism.

            • Claiming to know that WB is “disappointed” with a movie that cleared half a billion dollars in just under a month isn’t ignorant fanboyism?
              It didn’t make the money the studio expected? What? Is that why a sequel is green-lit?
              Stop buying into the idea that MoS was a failure, or a disappointment. Public polls on the topic are unanimous: People LOVED Man of Steel.
              The internet blog voice is minuscule compared to the general public.

              • I didn’t like MOS, thought it was mediocre but it would’ve been a shame if it didn’t get a sequel to improve on it.

                I think what he meant was that MOS didn’t make as much money as everyone expected it to do and wasn’t the universally praised movie we all assumed going into the screening.

                Compared to Green Lantern though, I can’t see how WB would see MOS as anything but a massive success though regardless.

                • WTF did WB “EXPECT” it to do?
                  I myself thought they would be happy with 700 million! and with it’s release in Japan still a cpl weeks away it very well could get that number!!
                  But again what the hell did they think it was gonna do?
                  I actually think it would have done a bit better if the critics would not have went into MOS with out of this world expectations! They contributed to people saying “critics said it was not good so I’m not gonna waste my money” I have friends that said THAT EXACT SAME THING until I told them otherwise!!
                  people may not think that does damage to a movies bottom line but to the general public it has a tangible effect on the bottom line

                  • ^this

              • Man of Steel may have cleared half a billion dollars in just under a month but what it cost to make the movie and promote it was similar if not more than The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises and the latter movies made much more money and received much higher critical acclaim.

                There’s no denying that Man of Steel was a success, but they clearly expected more in my opinion. According to Variety magazine, WB’s now former president Jeff Robinov went so far as to predict Man Of Steel will be the studio’s highest performer ever (ie Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 $1.3 billion). Then weeks later he resigns when it’s clear that Man of Steel will not be performing up to such expectations. Yes, a sequel was green-lit… with Batman involved who is easily their most financially successful superhero because they know a Superman solo sequel in 2015 against the likes of The Avengers and Star Wars won’t stand a chance.

                • ^^ then Variety reports complete non-sense, or it’s just you posting complete non-sense.

                  The only official statement from WB regarding how much the movie would make was there initial weekend prediction of $80 million.
                  Jeff Robinov didn’t resign because MoS didn’t make a billion dollars. That is a ludicrous statement.

                  • It’s neither Wizard. And $80 million is just Warners Bros. low balling.

                    • We live in a very misguided and misinformed world the day 80 million dollars as an opening weekend projection is “low-balling.”

                      And BTW, the production cost of MoS was 220 million. They made nearly all of that back with there initial endorsements, which totaled 180 million.

                      Therefore, MoS profits are in the hundreds of millions, and that is BEFORE you add merchandising.

                    • $80 million for $225 million production budget Superman movie is low balling. And again, no one said Man of Steel wasn’t a success, just not as a great of a success as WB was expecting.

                    • I’m going to let the “smartness” of this comment speak for itself:

                      “80 million is low balling on a 225 million budget.”

                      ^^^^^ LMAO

                      what/ nearly half the budget in its release is low balling? if nearly half is low-balling, then by your logic WB should have predicted a 180 million dollar opening.

                      could you please explain why the budget should dictate the reception? Lone Ranger, RIPD, and After Earth would like a word with you.

                      you can gtfo now

                    • I didn’t say $80 million is low balling for any movie on a $225 million budget. I said “$80 million for $225 million production budget Superman movie is low balling.” Keyword, Superman. Superman is far more popular than The Lone Ranger, R.I.P.D. and anything After Earth had to offer. Man of Steel was also released in more formats and more theaters than any of the above movies, in R.I.P.D.’s case, more than 1300. You may not like what I say but I have my reasons for saying it.

          • Dr. Mindbender

            I have read some very silly, even strange comments from you in the past, but this one has to take the cake.

            You’re saying that once MoS came out or was seen, that Marvel went back to re-shoot parts of Thor 2 to compete or be as good as MoS?

            That is flat out insane.

            First, you accuse other of being “Marvel fanboys”, while claiming yourself to be “nutral and love both DC AND Marvel”. Well, i’m calling it right here and right now, you’re full of BS, and you’re secretly a Marvel hater.

            Second, Marvel is king right now, they are not going to look at a film such as MoS and feel the need to change their style to compete with that. MoS was awful, why would they want to follow that model. The idea that they went back for re-shoots with MoS in mind is utterly and completly ridiculous, even for you.

            He’s making craters when he lands for who knows what reason, maybe he’s landing on diffrent soil.

            Third, they changed composers to what, compete with Hans Zimermans soundtrack from MoS? Are you kidding me??

            You are making yourself look more foolish that I have ever seen you do before.

            “That shot of Thor making everyone “trip” with his hammer is gone”

            yeah, out of this trailer, who’s to say it’s not still in the movie?

            You act like Marvel is concerned about losing fans, that’s silly. 99% of the people that saw MoS will see this and all Marvel movies and oppisite is true. There not selling cars, theire selling movies, people that watched one will watch the other.

            Look Dr. Mindbender, just admit you’re a DC fan, or that you favor DC over Marvel already, and stop trying to force MoS into every Marvel thread.

            • Hey Tony… er *ahem* James…

              I didn’t force anything into the thread.

              I didn’t suggest many of the points your trying to get across. You don’t need to put words in my mouth. I can do just fine.

              But for you to suggest that one business is not concerned at all with what there competition is doing, AND for you to also suggest that 99% of people will see both, suggests you are clearly out of touch sir.

              Look James-

              It is a very wise business move to time your re-shoots directly with the release of your competitions movie. You get to see what you are up against, and you act accordingly.

              If you want to shrug and say it’s all just a coincidence, well… that’s your prerogative… sir.

              • I’d just like to add my 2 cents if I may.

                I’m with you Dr Mindbender and a way I would put it to some of these uppity Man of Steel ‘haters’ (oh, how I loathe that word)would be using Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S as an example. Apple don’t rest on their success and incredibly large flock of sheep – I mean – fans, when Samsung starts out doing them on innovation, power and sales of smartphones. Both Samsung and Apple pay very close attention to what each other are doing and they match tech for tech and try to innovate to give themselves the advantage.

                Marvel and DC are surely in the same situation, clearly DC have seen Marvel’s success with their shared universe and have announced the Superman/Batman flick to counter, and I’m sure Marvel has taken notice of what DC have achieved with their take on a realistic tone and feel.

                Personally, I love Marvel’s Phase 1, all the films, I love Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and I loved Man of Steel. I am thoroughly enjoying this golden age of comic book movies, I even found myself liking X-Men and Spider-Man after being totally disappointed and put off by earlier films (None of the first 4 X-Men films, or Tobey Macguire’s Spider-Man flicks really grabbed my interest)

                Iron Man 3 left me feeling empty and sad, but I can’t wait for Thor: The Dark World.

            Look Dr. Mindbender, it ok to admit that you’re a DC fan and not a Marvel fan, in fact I’d respect you a lot more if you just came out and admitted it rather than come up with these bizarre conspiracy theories of yours. You don’t like Marvel as much as DC, we get it, it’s ok.

            Get some help.

      • @ Wizard

        It didn’t seem like MoS to me, this looks great and MoS was awful, truly awful.

        • It didn’t seem like MoS to me, this looks lame and MoS was amazing, truly amazing.

  2. I loved the Indiana Jones moment at the end. 10/10

    • I’m missing that? What part are you referring to?

      • Watch it again?

  3. HOLY HELL YES

  4. I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty disappointed Eccleston didn’t say “Your world will be… exterminated”.

  5. It looks really good. It does feel like it’s a lot of Loki. Don’t get me wrong, Loki is a great character but this is supposed to be Thor’s movie.

    • loki has more fans. id makes sense to have him in the trailer more than thor because they want to get everyone in the theater. i personally like thor more but i understand why they are doing it.

      it definitely is thors story. but think of loki like magneto of xmen, or doctor doom. he is a character that is in them all because he is part of the story just as much as the good guys.

  6. perfect trailer! really hope this makes 800m min worldwide.

    this will truly say if marvel is in the minds of everyone because so far its iron man that is making marvel all their money with avengers and iron man solo movies.

    • Captain America made over $200M in profits, Thor made $300M, and The Incredible Hulk made over $110M. With the exception of TIH, they’ve all made more than their budget in PROFITS. Iron Man and Avengers may have made the lion’s share, but all their properties have been profitable thus far.

  7. :D

  9. The movies really water down Thor. In the comics, he is much more powerful than what the movies portray.

    • If you want comic book Thor, read the comics. MCU Thor is as powerful as he needs to be.

      • If you say so, if you like watered down characters then I guess that’s cool.

        • You should check out Man of Steel. No watered down powers there.

          DCU Superman could wipe his @$$ with MCU Thor.

          • I like the movie Thor.

            Then again, I’ve read some Thor comic books and just find it hard to get through them. Somehow, they make the characters really boring and the plots just aren’t interesting enough for me.

            Did Thor and Superman ever fight in the Justice League/Avengers crossover?

            Anyway, comparing the two movies, I liked Thor more than MOS.

          • Not watered down?! Are you kidding? Gas hurt this new Superman (and Krytonians), and the Superman of the comics could lift planets; this new Supes strained lifting part of an oil rig. MoS was entertaining but I didn’t feel it was as great as people keep claiming.

            • And why is MoS in almost every Marvel article?

              • MOS is the new TDK!

          • ANOTHER JACK A$$ THAT HAS TO INTERJECT MOS INTO A MARVEL THREAD…
            THIS IS SOOO OLD, DC is but a turd on the floor of Marvels Mansion!

            FACE IT IT IS THE FACT! I liked MOS but Im so damn tired of every DC fan to come onto a Marvel thread and talk SH*T!!! STFU CLOWNS
            YOU HAVE 1 MOVIE that’s all, it was a good movie but nothing special!! Maybe in 20 years DC will be where Marvel is at NOW WITH THEIR MOVIES, but DC will NEVER take over what Marvel has created!!
            DAMN BABIES STICK TO YOUR OWN THREADS AND STROKE EACH OTHERS…EHEM*** EGOS and stop trying to cause arguments where there is NO ARGUEMENT! This IS NOT Jr. High where you bullies mean anything anymore!

            • Please. DC is the house that is and always will be.
              I bet you Marvel fans can’t wait to see that Wolverine vs Hulk movie.
              No? Hulk vs Thing then.
              Really?
              Ok.
              It will be cool when Spiderman joins the Avengers.
              What?

              GTFO with that turd on Marvel’s Mansion crap. Hey Marvel: How come 24 different studios own the rights to all your s**t?

          • Then again if Supes was zoomed up to Asgard he would be as weak as an asthmatic running a marathon and Thor wouldn’t need to waste a bit of energy on him.
            The fact is Thor is powerful everywhere and Supes is limited to around our little minuscule small sun out of the cosmos. I’m sure they are stories that put him powerful elsewhere but the fact is he is yellow sun dependent on his strength.
            Whose the stronger now?

  10. looove the trailer! it’s pretty cool and has just the right amount of Loki in it :)

  11. Anyone Else

  12. I must be really out of touch … I find this cliche and pretty disappointing : big boom badaboum like lee loo in the fifth element would say…

    • No it look cliche and disappointing. Only out of touch people are those who think this crayola coated stuff is cool.

      • I know, it’s almost as lame as the Nolan Batman trilogy, Green Lantern, Superman Returns, Man of Steel, and the Schumacher Batman movies…

  13. Looks good, but i said the same about the ironman 3 trailer, and it was nothing like the trailer revealed. I will wait till the final product

  14. This looks potentially epic, already much better than the first Thor.

  15. This looks like it’ll be a lot better than IM3, which wouldn’t be hard to do

    • Too true, IM3 sucked!

      • now listen up, here’s the story
        about a little guy who lives in a blue world
        and all day and all night and everything he sees is blue
        like him, inside and outside

        blue his house with the blue little window
        and a blue corvette
        ……

        okay I give up, yeah IM 3 is terrible!

        • Not really, IM3 was great.

          • I didn’t think is was terrible or great, but I did think it was very good.

            • The IM3 writers showed supernova-sized ballz with their awesome Mandarin twist. I must say, I never saw that coming.

              • Yeah, I know a vocal minority hated it, but I lol’d.

  16. Goodbye New York!

  17. wasn’t crazy about the first thor but this looks pretty damn good

  18. I have to see another Marvel movie before I can trust another Marvel trailer. I don’t care what anyone says Marvel lied to us with the IM 3 trailer. The tone of that trailer was the exact opposite of the tone of the movie.

    • How so?

      The trailer looked dark and introspective and the finished movie was dark and introspective.

      • The movie wasnt dark… how is ironman 3 dark? There is a punch line every 5 seconds and very much felt like lethal wepond which isnt dark. Anything like the anxiety attacks or tony being abanded from his home was instantly forgotten under the ferociety and quickness of the shane black dialouge

        • I did not find Iron man 3 to be dark or introspective
          Agree with meh that the tone of the trailers did not represent the finished movie
          Hoping that marvel don’t pull the same trick with this film

        • to say that a film about a suicidal cop, who almost eats a bullet in his 1st scene, isn’t a dark film, is really not paying attention to the tone of the film. it had a lot of humor, but there were some pretty intense emotional scenes throughout. the last 3 sequels turned into buddy cop comedies, but the 1st lethal weapon is a pretty dark movie, imo.

    • It wasn’t Marvel that lied it was the uber magnificent director Shane Black that did. The same guy everyone was praising before they saw the movie.
      Marvel gives these guys a certain degree of freedom, like it or not, and sometimes you get an IM3. Hopefully Marvel never gives so much freedom that they get a Green Lantern.

  19. You can definaltly feel the game of thrones look. especially in the begging of the trailer. Sound and all.

    • I still hope that theirs some cosmic feel to it as well. Because I believe they can tease GOTG in Thor and I think that would be awesome

      • Yeah, in the trailer, Asgard felt like a cosmic fantasy version of King’s Landing.

      • I think there will be. I mean spaceships and modern guns will be included, so it will be really both fantasy and modern cosmic.

        In one scene it even looks like Thor, Loki and Jane are travelling in a some high-tech boat.

  20. Sure hope so Yeti. I have loved all the films this year. IM3,MOS, and The Wolverine. And if this is better then all of them, its means its going to be fantastic. Never read the comics, so i cant sit hear and bash a movie for shadowing away from its source material. I just know that if the movie stands out to be as something that can relate to our time, and just makes enough sense to not be a stupid film, i will have no problem with it.

  21. Looks like Alan Taylor turned Asgard into Westeros with lasers.

    Looking forward to this.

    • Yeah but it looked like Asgard wasn’t flourishing as it once did. And if its attacked then yes I can see that but not before its attacked because then it raises the question. What the heck happen to the way it looked to now?

      • Um, there ARE 7 other realms beside Asgard and Earth and they did say they’d be showing more of them in this film.

      • @ T maybe Asgard is going through a recession

  22. Looks damn good and will probably be better than IM3 and Cap2. This should have gotten the May release date instead of IM3.

    Also, for the third Thor movie Marvel should consider doing a Thor vs Hercules film. i.e. Asgard vs Olympia.

    • Even better, the 3rd Thor movie should be with the God Butcher!

    • …..and my cast for Hercules….is……..Joe Manganiello!!! :D

  23. This actually looks pretty good. I was hoping the demon at the end would’ve actually posed a threat to Thor lol, but it was still pretty amusing. I also like how the majority of it is taking place off of Earth, the scenery looks amazing!

    Hopefully the trailer suggests what actually is in the movie, because if so it can definitely be one of the top comic book movies this year. Not sure if it’s always been this way but trailers these days very rarely show what the movie actually will be like. It’s cut in a way that is completely different than what you’ll have once the movie comes out. I understand it’s a way of attracting different audiences but it gets kinda annoying lol.

    • The demon at the end reminds me of a type of earth elemental creature from a video game. Looking at the physics of the rocks shattering like that, my guess is that it’ll reform itself to it’s humanoid form. Hammer can’t smash something that’s already smashed? lol

    • The marvel movie universe isnt known for having their heroes face formidable opponents. They have so far been extremely weak in the villain department. Hopefully ultron and thanos change that

      • Hulk vs. Abomination?

      • cap and red skull

        • Did you watch cap at all red skull was a horid villain who was underdeveloped and underused. Resulting in a 5 minutes wanna be brawl that ended ubruply. Abomonation is a solid one but like many others i know the incredible hulk seems left out of the conversation do to the actor change. Tonys villains have been awful, i mean guy pearce put up a good fight but wasnt nearly as interesting as the manderin could have been

    • The demon at the end isn’t a demon at all. Those rock humanoid life forms are an alien race known as, “Kronans.”

      • Ah, did not know that, as you can probably see I don’t read Thor comics aha. But thank you for the clarification!

        • Np! It was a pleasure to enlighten.

  24. I love it this looks fantastic

  25. This trailer looks awesome – still can’t wait for Thor 2 (trying to temper my expectation and excitement though – been burned by marvel once this year)

    While the trailer was mostly great
    The ‘that was for New York’ bit is so awful
    I couldn’t stop myself from rolling my eyes at that bit, just to cheesy (and another terrible way to link to the avengers, Tony’s ‘anxiety attacks’ were a tad worse) hopefully there won’t be to many ham-fisted avengers references like this in the film though

    • Wait….Tony’s anxiety attacks were cheesy?

      Have you ever had one? RDJ depicted it pretty spot on. I say this as someone who has been through plenty of them and knows a few people who also have them frequently.

      Plus, why WOULDN’T he suffer after what he went through? At least they’re going for realism instead of “well, I almost died and had my eyes opened to things I never thought possible but everything’s still sunshine and rainbows”.

      • Im sorry but anxiety attacks dont just go away like it did in the film. If anything the epic final battle would have induced more anxiety attacks. It was a fantastic idea that wasnt developed like most of the film

        • Anxiety attacks are mental in origin that trigger physical reactions and there is nothing that prevents them from being switched off if the right mindset can be presented.
          Maybe in a superhero reality it is easier to flip that switch than in a everyday humdrum reality?

          • Possibly, but its a missed oppertunity by any standered. I was waiting the whole final battle for the anxiety attacks to kick in and cause a formidable problem for tony to overcome. Much like the alcohol problems could have added to the film

      • Sorry if that was unclear
        Didnt think Tony’s anxiety attacks were cheesy thought Natalie Portmans bit in the trailer was cheesy (and poorly executed as well)
        Who knows maybe in the context of the film that bit in the trailer works better

        I did not like the use of anxiety attacks in iron man 3 – RDJ didn’t sell them in my mind, didnt suit the tone of the film either and when he had the ‘attacks’ the characters around didnt seem convinced (they made jokes or RDJ tried to be funny) and like a number of other things in the film it seemed like they were more concerned with using the attacks for comedy than to create any sense of ‘realism’
        Who knows maybe it is the case that my disappointment with the film as a whole has effected my memory of the few points that the film did well (I’ll have to wait till its out on DVD to answer that I guess)

        I don’t get anxiety attacks myself but a number of my closest friends do
        And I found that compared to what they go though and how they behave during and immediately after their attacks the stuff in iron man 3 didn’t fit with the film or come across as realistic
        As such it came across as just a way to make an avengers nod

        Also the insomnia and throwing himself into his suit construction worked as a direct mental side affect of the avengers stuff that also had a physical manifestation
        It may have been ‘realistic’ for some people to respond to the avengers stuff by starting to have anxiety attacks
        But it wasn’t in keeping with Starks character that we had been shown thus far over 3 films

        And really if i don’t agree that stark must have anxiety attacks post avengers then I must be an advocate of the ‘sunshine and rainbows’ approach? Are those really the only options
        I would have preferred something in middle or that at least fit with the tone the film was going for

        • I’m sure RDJ did research on anxiety attacks before he acted them out. Many vets had positive comments on his characterization of them.
          The fact is people deal with stress in different ways and a billionaire, genius, philanthropist, playboy who flies in a rocket suit defending the world from outer space God like creatures and who has a close friend that is a Hulk might deal with it different than you or I.

  26. This is going to blow Iron Man 3 away in terms of quality. Shame it will not make as much money though.

    • If RDJ has a 5 minute cameo in it you could bet it will rake in another 100 million.

  27. AMAZING TRAILER!!!! CAN’T WAIT FOR THE MOVIE!

  28. Hopefully the villain doesn’t turn out to be a british actor…

  29. A Kronan!!! I’m soo pumped!!!!
