Even though it did great at the box office and critics even seemed to like it, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first Thor film, and at the time, it seemed like a rough fit in with all the other Marvel properties. That was resolved during The Avengers when Whedon made it work, but now with this new trailer, I’m reminded how vastly disparate the character is from say, Iron Man and Captain America.
I’m still unclear about what exactly the plot of this film is, despite two minutes of footage. There’s a darkness. It wants to fight Thor. Thor wants to fight it. That’s about all I’ve got. Natalie Portman is back, and I’m looking forward to hearing Thor explain why he didn’t stop by to see her while he was on Earth saving the world.
Whatever the threat is, Loki has to come out of prison/retirement to help Thor out with it, which I’m sure is going to be good news for everyone.
I don’t know. It looks interesting I suppose, and I’m glad that most of the film won’t be taking place in some dusty southwestern town this time around. What do you think?
