Update: I can’t find it anywhere, they’ll release an official trailer someday, probably late in the year.
Good God in heaven, this looks magnificent. BTW, watch this as soon as you can, it’ll be taken down at any moment. This is the first “trailer” for Thor, except it’s pretty much three trailers in one.
I think a lot of people are skeptical about Thor, even after seeing the glorious pictures. I hope this trailer convinces you of its awesomeness.
Kenneth Branagh is looking especially like a genius now after I’ve seen this trailer. It would be extremely hard to establish Asgard in a world where Iron Man and The Hulk exist. So instead of creating magic what he did was go with the old saying: “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic“. In essence Thor is just Superman. He seems outrageously powerful on Earth, but on his planet that wasn’t so amazing. Amazing idea.
The casting appears to be spectacular. Chris Hemsworth has the body of a superhero, it’s amazing! I didn’t think that was possible. Anthony Hopkins looks great too. Poor Mr. Hopkins regularly gets wasted in roles like this. He gets to play the wise-man but then they write the wise-man as an idiot. He looks good here. Tom Hiddleston is going to be fun as Loki. Loki is one of the best superhero villains. When it comes to supervillains, I always like subversion better than all out destruction. Jaimie Alexander seems to have a pretty huge part, or maybe she just got a strange amount of screen time in this trailer.
The last scene was pretty strange, I think if I was at Comic-Con it would be more exciting, but from here it looks dumb.
