Of Marvel Studios’ two headlining superheroes fighting for box office dominance in 2011′s crowded summer of major film releases, Thor came out swinging first. Taking the prized summer opening release date of the first weekend of May, only to be followed by Captain America: The First Avenger two months later, Thor was the first to be introduced to the world with 5 minutes of footage at last summer’s Comic-Con and later, the first official Thor trailer.

Since being introduced to the characters and story of Thor early, Captain America has been stealing his thunder ever since, starting with the first official images of Chris Evans in Captain America costume, then the long awaited Captain America Super Bowl TV Spot. Now, Thor is back with an impressive second full trailer.

Yahoo! Movies debuted the new Thor trailer moments ago and it’s something you certainly do not want to miss. It features almost entirely never-before-seen footage, focusing on the literal and physical impact Thor’s banishment to Earth has on his new human friends.

Watch and enjoy:

The slower pace of the new Thor trailer emphasizes more of the story and title character’s introduction to his Earthly allies. We also get to see larger scale shots of the beautiful Asgard and the Rainbow Bridge, Loki being truly evil and anti-human, Colm Feore’s Frost Giant speaking and most cool of all, Anthony Hopkins in battle as Odin.

As much as I’m digging the work Kenneth Branagh and Marvel Studios have done on Thor, it’s almost ruined by the inclusion of Kat Dennings’ character who’s only there, from this trailer and her words at Comic-Con, as a desperate attempt to appease tween audiences.. We even get a Facebook reference in this trailer… Hopefully there’s more to her character.

From the rest of the trailer however, you can see how Thor is #2 on Screen Rant’s 20 most anticipated films of 2011.

  1. Well I said it 3 months ago, six months ago, last year. lol. I will be going to see this movie several times. Imax 3D, let it take the house payment. Ive been waiting 45 years for this. My wait is almost done.

  2. Im convinced. This movie will get my money.

  3. Isn’t Kat Dennings’ character Jane Foster? If she is I have no doubt in my mind that they are going to put some series effort into her role. Might be very hard though considering they aren’t using Thor’s alter ego Donald Blake.

    • @ Jared: Natalie Portman is Jane Foster. Kat Dennings is forced comedic relief.

      • and they are using his alias Dr. Donald Blake

  4. Funny I thought Portman was always the comic relief finding she is impossible to take seriously

  5. Hhmmm…. Apparently when one is “cast out of Asgard”, one lands on earth in jeans and a t-shirt.

    • LOL, funny – and I fixed your typo. :)

      Vic

      • Thank you Vic, and caan I say “whew”, dont want a reputation as a potty mouth.

  6. WOW, another type-o. Should say”can” Oh well, too late to be typing.

  7. I just hope that the cinematography takes us to that world.

  8. I’m gonna watch this movie, because I think it has potential and I love comicbook movies. But, to be honest, ever single trailer for Thor that’s been released has sucked, and I’m becoming less and less excited for this movie.

  9. yeah…hopeful yet underwhelmed by this trailer. Depends what it’s up against opening weekend for longevity past week 1.

  10. Three times seen, always awesome!!
