Ah yeah boy its time to talk about the first trailer for Thor: The Dark World yo! I’ve waited forever for there to be some official trailer for this film and FINALLY we have something to ogle over, and the end result is something very different from what I was expecting but it’s all sorts of awesomeness. Check it out for yourselves below:
So the trailer starts out in London all nice and pretty then it cuts to a scene with a kid who touches a button on a truck and then it starts levitating and turning. Woah this is supernatural stuff going on here. We then see our Jane Foster (again played by the incredibly beautiful Natalie Portman), then it cuts to some hooded enemy standing in the darkness (I think it may be inside of a ship because of the next scene) and then chaos descends upon London as some massive upside-down triangle ship thing crashes through the city and all the people run in panic… And just for a second oh hey Darcy what’s up (Kat Dennings observing with some random guy)?
Then we enter the man of the hour, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) who comes drops from the sky in a spectacular fashion. He and Jane meet again, Thor tells Jane to come with him and she’s all like “What?” And then bam they disappear into the sky leaving Darcy to stare into the sky. We then return to Asgard and there are shots of fancy doors, Thor and Jane checking out the scenery, Sif (Jaimie Alexander), trekking through an icy location and Jane lying down raising up her hands and with these scenes there’s a voice over from Jane saying “We’re from two separate worlds, maybe they were separate for a reason.” Oh I can sense drama ahead. Then we cut to more action where we see a ship crash into the outside of one Asgardian areas, there’s fighting in the woods and now scene with Odin and Thor. Thor states “If they do nothing they will destroy us.” Cut to more shots of London and people getting mashed, then cut to Mjolnir flying right into Thor’s hand as teleports there and then he lays the smack down on several guys on the battlefield like boss!
We see shots of Malekith, Sif looking all badass on the battlefield, Thor throwing a guy, explosions, and then another shot of Thor where he seems to be inside some swirling circle along with Malekith who’s holding Jane towards the air. Thor falls to his knees and he’s all like “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” See that? That’s called drama.
I love the final scene in this trailer where we hear a familiar voice saying these words: “You must be truly desperate to come to me for help.” It is of course Loki (played by the awesome Tom Hiddleston) who’s serving hard time in some kind of jail where he looks rough. Thor goes to see Loki in his time of need and says that anyone who crosses him will be killed to which Loki smiles and replies “When do we start?” See that’s the sign of badass ladies and gentlemen.
Overall this trailer has a much bigger and grander sense than before and it seems like there’s a few story elements from the comics that will find themselves in this film like possibly the Asgardian trials for Jane Foster or the look into Thor and Sif’s relationship. I’m also liking the style of the action, it’s looking rough and ready, we may even get to have more than one badass action sequence in this second film. Before watching this trailer I wondered how Jane Foster could truly fit into this film with all the Asgard and Malekith tuff going on but it seems she plays an intricate part in all of this so I can’t to see how that unfolds.
All in all the this trailer shows off a lot of cool, dynamic and interesting things, Thor: The Dark World definitely shows promise. I just hope that the film will be everything I wanted and then some. This trailer was great and all but mind wasn’t blown like it was when the Iron Man 3 trailers showed up, well hopefully the next trailer will fix that.
