Thor 2 Trailer Thor 2 Trailer Description; Attached To Iron Man 3 [Updated]

[UPDATE: According to Marvel's Agent M., the 'Thor 2' trailer will be released next week. Scroll for details.]

While Captain America: The Winter Soldier crept into the spotlight with its casting announcements, start of production, concept art and an official photo, Marvel Studios has made sure not to overlap their Phase Two marketing campaigns. Instead, Iron Man 3 has dominated headlines with trailers, posters, art work, a world press tour and more, leading up to its imminent release as the first 2013 summer feature, meanwhile Thor: The Dark World has remained mostly under the radar.

This will change very soon when moviegoers get their first look at director Alan Taylor’s (Game of Thrones) more realistic take on the realm of Asgard when Tony Stark returns to the silver screen. And we already have an idea of what we may see.

Nigel Cook, Vice President of Marvel International, took to the stage during the Disney Consumer Show in Mexico yesterday in a presentation about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In addition to showcasing Iron Man 3 footage, as a surprise for the attendees Cook also introduced and played the first trailer for Thor: The Dark World and as a result – much like the leaked Iron Man 3 trailer description – we have a summary of some of the key scenes in it thanks to the Marvel Cómics México Facebook page.

It was a quick introduction with no explanation and Marvel let the footage speak for itself. We translated and summarized their description of what was shown so quotes may not be accurate. The Thor 2 segment began with a slideshow of familiar imagery and set photos, before playing the full trailer:

  • Trailer opens with Thor’s voiceover, as quick scenes of action are shown, along with Jane Foster in her Asgardian attire and people on Earth running from “something”
  • Thor tells Jane he promised he would return and scenes are shown of Thor coming to Earth and taking Jane to back to Asgard.
  • The action sequences are reportedly “incredible” and Thor is shown taking a beating. He’s fatigued and Malekith, leader of the Dark Elves, is shown completely unafraid of Thor.
  • A futuristic glass prison is shown, and Loki sits within after the events of The Avengers.
  • Thor comes to him and says “I need your help, but if you betray me, I will kill you.”
  • Loki [smirking] responds:  “What is it I must do?”
  • Thor is shown fighting Malekith as Jane watches. Malekith threatens her, as a beaten Thor eyes the Dark Elf King and screams “Noooo!”

Cook also explained at the event that fans will see this same trailer in “15 days” which is exactly two weeks from today, April 26th – the Mexican and European theatrical release date for Iron Man 3. For North American audiences, count on that trailer playing a week later when Iron Man 3 opens here.

We unfortunately don’t have details on the action sequences but we can expect to see many Asgardian soldiers along with Sif and the Warriors Three in battle, alongside Thor. We’ll find out in just two weeks!

UPDATE: Agent M. – a.ka. Ryan Penagos, the executive editor at Marvel Digital and Marvel.com – has confirmed that the trailer for Thor: The Dark World will be dropping next week. Check out his tweet below:

Iron Man 3 releases May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015 and Ant-Man on November 6, 2015.

  1. Game of Thrones + Thor huh? Yeah, I’ll be there.


    • I second this.

    • I’d be down for that!

    • Sounds great, bring it on!!!

    • How about Oded Fehr?

      • Definitely not my first choice, but he could work

    • I like this idea! :D

  2. Wow, the next two weeks are gonna be amazing.

    Evil Dead next week then not only IM3 but a Thor: TDW trailer too?

    Can’t wait.

    • I’m getting tired of Loki. How many more Marvel films is he going to be in before they finally move on and spend screen time exclusively on other villains.

      • His character continues as do all that were in The Avengers. Personally I love the character and the actor playing him.

      • @GG

        The story can’t continue without Loki since he’ll get to escape prison and be free to cause more mischief in future.

        Loki also happens to be the Lex Luthor to Thor’s Superman, his one big and most prominent villain.

        • I agree 100% Dazz, without loki thor is not as exciting or there is no emotional connection! I love both Loki and the actor who plays him as well, I could not see Loki being played by anyone but Tom Hiddleston! He is LOKI, and hope he is in the Marvel Universe as long as it is around OR as long as Thor is around!
          It seems you cant have one without the other and that is the way it should stay!

          • @ Snappy D & Dazz

            I completely agree. Huddleston is excellent and his Loki is superb. He can stay around as long as he likes as far as I’m concerned.

            • 100% agree

            • Huddleston..


              If the fangirls find you, they’re gonna hang you. Just saying.

          • Sorry but Jim Carrey IS Loki. ;-)

            • No. Alan Cumming is Loki. Don’t you remember that god awful sequel to the Mask?..

      • There it no Thor without Loki and no Loki without Thor. You can’t have just one it’s sort of a package deal.

        Loki is awesome and Hiddleston is brilliant. He should stay as long as possible. I am definitely not tired of him.

      • @GC, Everyone below has said it right. You can’t really have one without the other but Loki gets even more interesting as stories develop, especially because he is not a “black & white”or cut & dry villain he has layers. He plays villain and anti-hero in the comics so you will most definitely see this in the movies. Especially in his Hannibal Lecter-esque role in this one. Expect to see Loki in the “end” during “Ragnorok”(Armagedon)possibly in “Thor 3″, Loki will most likely redeem himself as a hero but at his own demise.

  3. Wasn’t a big fan of the first Thor, but this one is starting to look good. Cant wait to check out the trailer.

  4. my gawd! it sounds awesome. i knew loki would still play a big part in this, part of me wants loki and thor to be brothers again but it wont happen. im guessing loki will escape at the end and betray thor in some way. but i hope they dont downplay malekith for loki because i dont want another bane story…

    this is my most anticipated phase 2 movie… i think thor was awesome and the best phase 1, well that or iron man 1. i cannot wait to see GotG though, i think that will really surprise.

  5. Thor 2 trailer before IM3? Brilliant!
    It’s time for Phase 2!

  6. I’m guessing Loki will help Thor and escape at the end. He’ll lay low for a while and pop up in a future Thor sequel or make a deal with Surtur and again be in Thor III.

  7. can someone explain why the United States is always second to overseas as far as opening dates?? holy hell people it our movies to begin with and who brings in the most $$ for these movies???? unreal

    • “…who brings in the most $$ for these movies?”

      Usually, it tends to be “overseas” markets (mine being one of them).

      I mean, Hollywood is too US-centric anyway. I’m still extremely pissed about the Dredd situation because of it (more than made its budget overseas and gained top spot in several markets on release, deeming it a huge success but because Americans didn’t bother watching it, they’re not making sequels while we get crappy sequels to crappy movies that even as I type haven’t been released outside of America yet).

      The Avengers released in the UK last April. Marvel filmed the extra shawarma scene after the UK release date and added it to the US release.

      Evil Dead isn’t released outside the US until next thursday at the earliest.

      Huge movies nominated in the big Oscar categories don’t usually release outside the US until late February at the latest (we got Lincoln in early Feb for instance and Django Unchained in January).

      You should think yourself lucky that Hollywood studios think more about the US than any other country instead of complaining because a movie is releasing 7 days earlier than over there. You can wait, have patience, otherwise you perpetuate the negative American stereotypes.

      • As an American, I can personally say I have few problems with the current American VS. Foreign Release situation. Iron Man 3 is still coming in America at the same time movies like it normally would, it’s just that other countries happen to be getting it a week sooner, which is fine. My only problem with it is it makes it a lot harder to avoid spoilers.

        • Carl, all you have to do is avoid sites most likely to reveal such spoilers. Not that hard!

          • Well, as someone who likes to be up to date on movies news, as long as the news isn’t spoiling a movie, that actually is kinda hard.

      • I second that!!

      • Americans have been dumbed down by Liberal Democrats. They don’t even know what good music is like Queen, Muse, King Crimson, Rush and Asia…

    • “Our” movies? No, they belong to the multinational corporations that make them. Most movies today are at least partially filmed and/or produced in/by other countries making the just as much “theirs” as “ours”, if not more so.


    • It’s payback for having to wait months for a movie that was already out in the US to open here.

      Any of you guys remember when movies used to take about a year to come out on VHS? Now you’re practically tripping over DVDs and blu-rays on your way out of the theatre. Even they’ll be gone soon.

    • Let’s see, just two examples:
      Thor (2011) US: $181,030,624 (40.3%), International: $268,295,994 (59.7%)
      The Avengers US: $623,357,910 (41.2%), International: $888,400,000 (58.8%)

      So who brings in more $$?

  8. Evil Dead was such a let down, i will be patient and wait for the trailers for thor

    I really wish these next segments begin to introduce othe major players against Thanos. Thor, IM, Capt and Hulk are just not enough to challenge thanos

    • OMG thank you. I thought I was the only one on here that felt Evil Dead went wrong in every place that made the first film great.

      • Yeah, I thought it was going to be a lot darker, but they started doing dumb ISH, like in Prometheus

  9. EXCELSIOR! :)

  10. The thor:the dark world trailer will be amazing and loki is prison but thor give him second chance but loki will beya him again and try to kill jane foster and malekith is great vilain for thor:the dark world and i hope to see more thor vilain in thor 3 or the avengers 2,3 for future marvel movies.

  11. I wonder if Thor takes a beating not due to Malekith (who is beneath him strength wise) but Kurse instead (who is stronger than Thor).

    • I thought Thor was the strongest in his universe and Kurse was only strong because of his special armor, is he still stronger than Thor when thos is in his state of Warrior Madness? And will we see it?

      • Definintely not… his own dad pwns him repeatedly.

        Plus.. what is Thor’s universe?

      • Thor is in the same universe (not the same galaxy) as The Hulk; so no, Thor is not the strongest in his universe.

        • Thor did block one of Hulk’s punches and it was obvious he was holding back against Hulk

        • By “strongest” I think he means most powerful, in which case Thor is a lot more powerful overall than Hulk.

        • Superman is the strongest! LOL

  12. @Dazz Americans never appreciate anything, feels good to live in Britain.

    • No dude, our expectations are just high

    • Well, you live up to your screens me. It’s clownish to make a generalization about over 350 million people.

  13. “April 26th – the Mexican and European theatrical release date for Iron Man 3.”

    Here in India as well! Anyway, really excited to see this trailer, I really liked Thor. Bring it on!

  14. Look forward to Thor the most but I’m not too ken on Jane on Asgardian attire thourgh as I prefer her to stay as a damsel in distress.

  15. (ignore the first post I made I fixed the spelling mistakes)

    Looking forward to Thor the most but I’m not too keen on Jane in Asgardian attire thourgh as I prefer her to stay as a damsel in distress.

  16. Yeah!! Bring on Thor, Loki, Sif and Malekith!!

  17. Phase 2 seems to be going bigger, darker, deeper, and more serious with their films. The Phase 2 films seemed to be made with more integrity and the essence that make these characters who they are and special and stand alone to focus on reaching their true potential.

    Personally while I enjoyed watching “Thor” in theaters as an escapism, I was somewhat bored with the actual story. The second act sacrificed true character development to fit in the SHIELD vs human Thor conflict…thus leading to a rushed change of character. This then led to weak third act whose ending loses impact when Thor returns so easily to Earth in the Avengers. Thor did not really have that mighty powerful sense of scale and its balance of epic fantasy and realism science left Thor in a weird place that I and other audience did not feel was fit for the Norse God of Thunder in Marvel Comics.

    Alan Taylor’s experience with “Game of Thrones” which does a great job of balancing the realism with fantasy bodes well in my opinion while offering of more serious take of the character. We got a glimpse of a better rendition of Thor in the Avengers, hopefully this film will cement the character in a better light yet.

    Cannot wait for the trailer. Attached to Iron Man 3? Priceless (well in enjoyment and excitement, not in dollars)

    • Thor traveling around and “requiring” assistance from the Bifrost, Odin or the Cube at the end of The Avengers has been bugging me when Mjolnir can be spun to create portals between Earth and Asgard has bugged me. I honestly was looking forward to seeing him do that at the end of the movie :P

  18. I’m extremely excited to see Thor 2. Thor is my favorite Marvel movie, so far.

  19. April 25th in Australia and New Zealand. Does this mean we won’t get the trailer at our premier of IM3?

    • 25th in Hungary too, but I’m pretty sure we’re going to get it, it’s just one day earlier after all. At least a hope so.

  20. Sh*t man I want the trailer NOW! 15 more days! The description of the trailer here is way better than the one on CBM.com. The guy translating it could barely speak English lol.

  21. Im actually starting to get excited about Thor 2 after reading this article. I loved the first Thor film. I especially liked the dynamic connection between Thor, Loki and their father. If you think about it, “Thor” was like a family drama. Im excited to see ehat happens in Thor 2.

  22. Thor will always be my favorite Marvel character. I’m excited for this movie because it will be about Thor and his realm. Like they said for the other movies, “Why don’t they just call the Avengers for help?” Because they can’t get to Asgard. That’s why.

  23. About time they released the trailer. IMO Tom is great as Loki, won’t mind seeing him again, also really excited to see Alan Taylor’s grounded take of the 9 realms.
    Also saw Oblivion last night,reminded me a lot of Moon.There were a few Independence Day and Star Wars moments as well.(2.5/5)

  24. I really cannot wait to see this. Finally a glimpse of Loki and the whole thing sounds very exciting!

    The brotherly dynamic will always be my favourite thing when it comes to Thor.

  25. In the second photo where Thor is jumping,Is that a rope/tether attached to his back?

    • I think its just a set photo that’s been shown before. So yeah.

  26. I Love It!!!! 2 weeks can’t get here soon enough! Come on! I can’t wait!

  27. Please please please, make sure The Warrriors Three and the rest of the Asgardians don’t look as cheesy as in Thor.

  28. Malekith looked cheesy on those previous photos, can wait to see how it will look in trailers

  29. Most anticipated Marvel movie this yr.
