New Thor movie clip and featurette New Thor Clip & Featurette Show Different Sides Of The Film

We’re less than four weeks away from the release of Thor in theaters, and promotional material for the comic book flick just keeps rolling in. Marvel has now released a third clip from the film, along with a featurette that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the construction (and de-construction) of a small desert town built specifically for the movie.

The recent release of a scene that provided a sneak peek at a fellow Avenger in Thor – after a somewhat underwhelming first clip was unveiled – raised the question: Has Marvel not built up the level of anticipation for Thor that it was hoping to have by now?

A number of fans have made it known they’ve gotten their fill of Thor-related promotions and are now just waiting to see the actual movie – not more TV spots, posters and additional footage. It makes sense that Marvel hasn’t shown off more of Thor‘s slick action sequences or CGI – people will have to see the actual film for those – but it seems the studio might be concerned about the less-than-enthused reception the Thor clips released so far have been given.

That may mean the advertising bonanza for Thor is just warming up, and will be even greater over the next few weeks – starting with the release of this new footage of the Asgardian warrior (Chris Hemsworth) becoming acquainted with the Earthly customs of hospital care (hint: it doesn’t go well).

Check out that clip below:

The latest footage released from Thor continues to focus on the titular superhero’s “fish out of water” experience on Earth – and, once again, the comical banter between Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and her assistant Darcy (Kat Dennings), for better or for worse.

If you’re more interested in checking out the real-world set piece that was built for Thor… in order to be blown up, basically – along with some additional footage of the shimmering castles and fortresses of Asgard – then you should definitely check out the behind-the-scenes clip below:

One of the issues I raised in my Superhero Movie Showdown – with respect to Thor – was that the regular human characters don’t seem all that interesting, especially in comparison to the “gods” like Thor, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Hopefully, that won’t be the case in the actual film, since just about every other element of Thor looks quite good at this point.

Thor finally arrives in theaters next month on May 6th.

  1. I am there for the midnight showing! This looks spectacular!

  2. Ok let me say this. I’m not so sure about this movie. First, thor’s suit/costume in this movie resembles that of a man wearing a black business suit with a red cape attached to it. Secondly, is thor only going to wear his costume when he is in asgard? If so, why won’t he be wearing it on earth, or throughout most of the film? We all know he has an alter ego (donald Blake), nevertheless, when he summons his powers when it is time for a fight will garments be changed into his Thor costume (as it is in the comics), or will he remain in street clothes? If it is the latter, I think it is garbabge. One of things that make a superhero movies big among the fans is that the hero wears his traditional templated costume throughout a good part of the film.

    One of the reasons the first Captain America movie (from 1990) was bad, was not only because it was low budget, but because Cap only wore his suit throughout only 1/4 of the movie. Also because Matt Salinger looked ridiculous in the cowl, like val kilmer did when he dared to dawn the cowl of the Batman. I have heard some bad reviews from certain fans regarding Tobey Maguire’s Spiderman flicks, but at least he wore his spidey suit throughout a good portion of the movie. By the way, I thought Spidey 2 was the best of the 3.
