So today we have a quick article to highlight the Thor 2: The Dark World Trailer that was released about twenty minutes ago when I started writing. The reason this has come out now is because I believe it is showing in front of the Iron Man 3 Cinema release. While clocking in at just under two minutes, I think it still counts as a teaser trailer but there are some nice reveals in there which I will talk through now. Immediately below is the trailer for those of you who haven't already seen it.
Thor 2 actually probably holds more interest compared to Iron Man 3 for me as a Marvel fan because A) I already know the Comic series that Iron Man 3 is said to be channelling and B) Thor generally deals with the items and artifacts that end up in the broader, more ground breaking continuity stuff. I suppose it is because Tony Stark is both a bigger personality and also a more down to earth (in most senses) character who inhabits a more grounded world. Irrespective of why, it is save to say Mandarin probably won't be popping into Avengers 2, but there is a good chance Malekith and Loki might. Onto the Trailer
So we have Chris Hemsworth still looking like a god, and being back on Earth with the ominous voice over of him saying "I gave you my word, I would return"...Which at this point seems to be all the justification he needs to just turn up on Earth whenever. It is a good thing he is so perfect, else I might be annoyed.
Jane Foster doesn't look overly happy at the idea of meeting the parents, though perhaps she had no idea and assumed, like the continuity did that the Bridge was still broken and Thor was just going to look at the sky for a while. Either way, it is nice to see one of the MarvelMovieVerses few functioning couples reunited.
So yeah, I was slightly worried about the Post-Avengers MarvelVerse, I thought they might have proverbially blown their load and that everything after would feel hollow, or worse, just try and be more of the Avengers, but between the tones of this, and Iron Man 3's barrage of trailers, then I'm feeling pretty confident that Marvel are onto a good thing here.
Now if only DC could put their act together....
Still "Coming Never" to a Cinema near you.
