Last we saw Thor, he was taking his bum brother Loki back to Asgard at the end of The Avengers. Now we see the Mighty Thor catching some wreck in the trailer for Thor: The Dark World, the sequel to 2011’s Thor, and it looks like Marvel will continue its hot streak.
You have to admire the moxie of whoever decided the first trailer for this film should include Thor falling on the ground and going “Noooooo,” Darth Vader-style. Not to mention whoever thought it would be a good idea to foreground the “Natalie Portman is a hostage” storyline. (And I guess Jane Foster is officially Thor’s main weakness now.)
Still, a lot of the visuals look amazing, and a Thor-Loki team-up sounds like the perfect next stage in their troubled relationship. We’re cautiously excited.
Natalia Portman better not ruin this movie. And yes, Idris Elba is back.
