The Marvel movie franchise is remarkably impressive, churning out hit after hit and then bringing everyone together for an epic Avengers film. Now with Phase Two about to begin, I am far and away the most excited for Thor: The Dark World. I love all of the movies, but Thor is my favourite thus far. It’s Norse gods AND superheroes. What more could you possibly want from a film? There’s a reason Loki was the villain in The Avengers: Because Thor was such a super cool movie.
Iron Man 3 is out soon, and I’m sure that’ll be fun, but Marvel’s just released the first teaser trailer for Thor: The Dark World!! Give it a look:
Jane in Asgard! Evil dark elves! Long haired Loki! It looks like so much fun. Plus it’s directed by Alan Taylor, who did an amazing job with so many episodes of Game of Thrones. This movie is going to be a spectacular mélange of awesomeness. I loved the style of the first movie, and I’m hoping it gets blended with the more down to earth fantasy that characterizes Game of Thrones. From this trailer, it looks like a good mix.
Unfortunately, we have to wait until November to see it. There are several superhero flicks to tide us over until then, but man oh man I want to see Thor: The Dark World most of all. Mark November 8 on your calendar… draw a big hammer on it or something.
