I gotta say, Thor is starting to look like fun.
Below is the new trailer for Kenneth Brannagh’s entry into the Avengers saga, Thor. It’s got some new goodies that the previous two didn’t have, including some impressive shots of the frost giants, less S.H.I.E.L.D emphasis and more about the developing relationship between the god of thunder (Chris Hemsworth) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). It also has more Kat Dennings, which pleases me.
Not bad, eh? Gives a nice view of the scope of the action, which is pretty massive. Clearly it’s going to have extensive action scenes on both Earth and Asgard. Thor looks like he’s going to create some large-scale destruction.
Still not much to see of The Warriors Three (Joshua Dallas, Ray Stevenson and Tadanobu Asano), but there are a few shots of them tossed in for good measure. Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, while more of a fighter and less of a venomous trickster than he is in the comics, looks like an interesting villain. Plenty of good looks at Mjolnir. Also, the wide shot of Asgard isn’t quite as video game-ish as it initially appeared to be. Yes, the dialogue’s a little melodramatic at times, but it’s about an Asgardian god come to Earth, directed by a man with a taste for the Shakespearean. Gotta give a little leeway on that one. The effects look solid, and…
Destroyer looks friggin’ badass.
