Thundering down upon us this week comes the full-length theatrical trailer for Thor: The Dark World. We suspected it would drop soon after the new epic poster debuted last week. Fans hoping for more Asgard and the Nine Realms this time around, your voices have been heard. Check out the new trailer for Thor: The Dark World after the break.
For those who attended Comic-Con a few weeks ago, much of the footage shown below may seem familiar; that is if you were able to snag a seat during Marvel Studios‘ Hall H panel. This new trailer for The Dark World expands much deeper into the Nine Realms. What was missing from the first film was a real richness to Asgard and its link to the universe, and we really get a sense of that here. Aside from Asgard and Midgard (Earth), it would appear Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will have to travel to multiple realms in order to bring balance to the universe.
As you will see in the trailer below, we get a lot more Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Any fanboy/girl could gush as to why he has been a highlight in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – it’s his dashing charisma. I would think this trailer is pretty safe to watch for anyone who tries to avoid spoilers. It’s well put-together, and you’ll see a lot of influence from Game of Thrones, which director Alan Taylor has dipped his feet in.
There’s a lot of questions to be answered from watching this trailer. How did the Dark Elves find their way back from exile; what’s that red core/matter Jane is checking out; and how exactly did Odin (Anthony Hopkins) allow Thor to spring Loki from prison? A lot of exciting things are happening here and it feels like we’ve hardly scratched the surface of this story; which compared to the first film feels ginormous in scale.
Everything about Thor: The Dark World looks ten times more detailed than the first film could have even dreamed of being. That isn’t to say the first film is bad – I enjoyed it – but it goes to show how powerful the MCU has gotten and what they can afford these days. The scope seems broader and the production scale massive. The teaser trailer was a solid indicator of that. It feels like a Thor movie that we deserve and will bring the character into a larger spotlight next to Iron Man.
