Thor: The Dark World

"What will you sacrifice for what you believe?" Disney & Marvel Studios have unveiled the first full-length teaser trailer for Thor: The Dark World, directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones"), bringing back Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder and Natalie Portman as his lover Jane Foster. They've made things even bigger and more epic, which is the direction Marvel's Phase Two is headed, first with Iron Man 3 then with The Dark World. Besides all the Dark Elves that Thor has to fight, there's another returning face that will make everyone grin - Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, is back. This looks exciting, bring it Thor!

Here's the first full teaser trailer for Marvel Studio's Thor: The Dark World, in high def via Apple:

In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and The Avengers, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) fights to restore order across the cosmos, but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones") directs Thor: The Dark World which arrives in theaters on November 8th in 3D. Excited yet?

    This looks infinitely better than the first one, and not just because it seems like Natalie Portman's character dies. I also like the look on Sif's face. This is gonna be sweet!
    • mooreworthy
      Lady Sif is like, "that trick over me????"
      • Xerxexx
        Kinda feel like that makes Sif as a character very...annoying. I loved her in the first, love triangles are god awful story lines.

        • Double trueness agreed times yup.
  • Looks nifty, but the whole using the girlfriend as hostage/bait to get to the hero has been done many, many times. I will not further judge it until it's released.
  • Nielsen700
    Didn't give me that epic feeling of wanting to see it that a lot of trailers recently has, but I'll definitely check it out. Seems to have less Kat Dennings as well, so that's awesome.
  • Silly.
  • beachbum_850
  • dawko
    story looks mediocre...not must watch at all...
  • Corey Feldman
    I hope they show off his power this time a bit better. Thor really muted his strength..i mean he's supposed to be almost as strong as the Hulk, and we got to see a little of this in Avengers but I hope they let loose with his powers.
    • Brian Sleider
      I think he is as strong as baseline hulk, but if hulk..hulks out more he quickly is stronger than thor.
      • When Stan Lee "created/incorporated" Thor into his comics, the concept was to make a hero who was stronger than the Hulk so in essence he is stronger, but not fully as Hulk can hulk out more and give Thor an even bigger challenge, but in my opinion I think it's raging power that matches/beats controlled power.
    • JBrotsis
      As I agree they should show more of Thor's physical strength, I feel they NEED to show more badass-ry of him wielding his hammer. Show more tornados forming, crazy intense lightening striking down on enemies, just horrific, stupid insane storms forming and crackling. Plus more slamming the hammer on the ground and creating earthquakes.

    What's with every blockbuster trailer having that big bass drop in it nowadays? And I'm not exaggerating, literally EVERY blockbuster trailer has it....starting to get more annoying than its predecessor which was made famous in Inception with the big BWWAAAAAAAAAAMMMMM.
    • avconsumer2
      lol - as an audio guy, I'm glad (& sorry) somebody else notices that. It's the new Wilhelm scream!! BEEEEWWWWwwwwwww!!!!
    • Sky
      U just started noticing.... it also usually follows a cut to black too
    • dvt
      Inception. People just copy lol.
      • Guest
        Didn't District 9 pull this before Inception
    • It's like dubstep in a lot of videogames. Mainly EA and Ubisoft......
    • Craptastic
      Transformers just used it so much I wanted to puke. Everything was a bass drop with that movie. "Bumblebee I need you!" "BWAWAWAWAWAAAAAAAMMMMM!!"
  • Phillip Gockel
    Me likey the visuals. But to be completely honest, the trailer could've been completely awful and I'd still be lining up day one to see this.
  • Tyrell Antonio
    I like the lil Marvel cape logo lol
  • Jim
    Looks better than the first one, anyway. But I'm getting tired of seeing Loki in every Marvel film.
    • mooreworthy
      Yeah, but he has more depth than anyone else's my opinion.
      • Jim
        You mean the actor, or the character? I'm frankly disenfranchised with both.
        • mooreworthy
          I would say the nuance he brings to Loki.
        • Blargh
          I kinda agree, much as I love Tom Hiddleston. On the other hand it makes a refreshing change to the "villain of the week" situation in most other superhero movies. I'm happy to see him in a few more secondary parts.

      He's the Lex Luthor of Marvel movies.
  • It's directed by Alan Taylor, what could possibly go wrong?
  • grimjob
    Dig it.
  • Brian Sleider
    BWWWOOOOOMMMM Otherwise a good trailer looks better than the first. Would like to see Thor don the his helmet a bit more this time around. IMO its a very iconic piece of his costume.
  • dat hair Loki..
  • Xerxexx
    Definitely has a GoT feel it it, which is a great thing.Thor was/is still a very watchable movie...The Dark World looks to be stronger than its predecssor. Love seeing Loki again, Hiddleson deserves to be in a lot more than just Thor, Avengers, and Dark World...he is just epic to watch.
  • mooreworthy
    Nice flick to look forward to in the fall.
  • This trailer I like it, another!
  • Anon
    AGAIN showing darkness falling in London. People in out!! "THEY" got something BIG in store for you...
    • Anon2
      Taking Boston as an example....just a little starter, the main course is coming!
    • G.I. Joe wiped out London, Star Trek has that bombing in London (I think?), and now this? Yeah. Something is up.....
      • Xerxexx
        New York has been at the forefront of destroyed cities for a long time now. Its London's turn.
        • If that Facebook page is anything to go by, Los Angeles is going to get nuked on the 28th. It was nice knowing you all :(
  • Blkstar
    Holy Shit, that just happened. Love it,
  • Cameron
    This might be a dumb/overly logical question - but how are they (and Iron Man, and Captain America, etc) going to explain the rest of the Avengers NOT coming to help out in each of their movies? I assume that they'll be some odd cameos here and there, but is Iron Man busy when the London is being destroyed?
    • vampyrfan
      I've thought about that, too. If the movies are connected to each other it makes no sense that one hero must save the world on his own. Guess we have to overlook that
  • LosZombies
    This sequel, I like it! ANOTHER!!
  • looks great!
  • Byakko
    Didn't Odin (Ahops) die in the first Thor? I don't remember, unless its a possible flashback. Also, seems like London is the backdrop for most of the recent blockbusters. Skyfall Fast and Furious 6 ST - Into Darkness Now Thor - The Dark World everything is dark!!! lol Wooo woooot!
    • Xerxexx
      He lived.
      • lewinston
        Odin is alive... he once fought Galactus one-on-one and made him his biatch... or so I'm told.
  • K1ng
    Please... Put the helmet on him during some of the fighting at least!
  • Jesse Bangerter

  • dgeet
    I hated how in the first thor they dyed hemsworths beard and eye brows blonde...instantly took me out of the movie the riduclous amounts of Dutch angles, constant silly humor and no real scope to the film, captain America was WW2 iron man LA rooftop battle, Incredible Hulk Harlem...Thor small town in New Mexico...haha this looks incredible, real scope, use of characters better, dark town and looks how it should've been plus has a real game of thrones feel like hemsworth wanted and well obviously with the director too looks awesome and love how crazy Loki looks
  • ken harris
    this appears to look better....which isnt that difficult
  • Antonio
    How are they going to win? They don't have a hulk this time? Or do they 😉
  • Payne by name
    To me what summed up Thor the most but was lost almost immediately afterwards was him striding into the pet store and demanding "A need a horse!". I wish they'd developed this laughable arrogance for a little longer.
  • Barbara Ruiz
    I like that all these upcoming marvel movies are darker, I hope this means the humor goes from juvenile to a bit more sophisticated ..I love most comic book movies no matter how badly done- I usually just appreciate SOMETHING at least but with these movies being done on such large scales I have to say I'm getting pickier. And while I have never been much into Thor his character has touched on the characters I do follow enough for me to demand the helmet. Won't ever stop me from seeing the movies though
  • I am no man
    Im a straight guy, but man oh man does Tom Hiddleston make me rethink my man card. *teeheehee*
  • dawko
    Reminds me the story of Green Lantern lol
  • Antonio
    Loki looks homeless.... Awesome
  • Damn that looks pretty frelling good!
  • Nielsen700
    Not quite epic enough.
  • comic393
    hope the Wrecking Crew are next Thor movie villains!
  • $126191
    Looks dumber than a bag of hammers.
    • Well with the director of Sopranos and Game of Thrones at the helm I think it's probably a safe bet that it isn't.
      • $126191
        It's not just the director that makes a movie work or not. A good movie, as the old Hollywood saying goes, needs three things: a good script, a good script and a good script.
        • A good script is pretty useless with crap direction and poor acting... Thor 1 had a fairly average script, but it was very impressively brought to life by a majestic direction by Branner and great performances by the main cast.
  • Jesse Gendelman
    Will it be in IMAX 3D?
