I admit it, I’m excited for this week’s release of Thor, although I partly feel that way because that means that the film’s relentless marketing campaign will finally come to a close. But with that said, there’s a new trailer for your enjoyment, and it actually shows a good deal of nifty new footage — notable of Jaimie Alexander’s Sif, Idris Elba’s Heimdall, and even a bit of Hogun (Tadanobu Asano). It’s got some solid new action as well.
More interestingly is that we have sort-of confirmation of who at least one of the villains will be in Joss Whedon’s upcoming, massive superhero extravaganza The Avengers. Filming commenced last week in New Mexico, and Tom Hiddleston will apparently be reprising the role of Loki as the villain. Or maybe one of the villains. Who the hell knows. But at least we know: Loki is going to stir up some shit for the Avengers, and I’m cool with that.
