Thor: The Dark World has released its first trailer which can be seen on youtube here.

Now, the big thing that I know a lot of people are talking about is Loki, specifically his hair.


Let’s look past that for a moment and take in the bigger picture. In mimic to Avengers, Loki is in a prison cell and giving a ‘how desperate are you’ speech, only this time he refers to himself rather than the Avengers. He views asking for help, any help, as a sign of weakness and a character flaw to be exploited.

Thor also says “when you betray me, I will kill you”, note the when… now, is this in response to something Loki says such as ‘You know I’ll betray you’ or he is just coming out and saying that Loki is completely irredeemable at this point and is going to betray him no matter what? I really hope it’s the former.


It also looks like Jane is being turned into a ‘damsel in distress’ in this movie which is annoying. But not nearly as annoying as the hint of a possible love triangle in this as well. When Jane is talking about ‘being from two different worlds’ which is how a lot of Dear John speeches start, Sif gets a nice glowy shot of her not looking very happy. Seriously, if these two characters are reduced to two women fighting over Thor in Dark World I’m going to be thoroughly annoyed and disappointed.


Frigga, on the other hand, looks ready to take everyone down. Rene Russo is a very underestimated actress in my opinion and I love that there is, hopefully, expansion on her character in this. Frigga is the freaking Queen of Asgard, not a title she could hold by being meek in any way. I would also like to see what her relationship with Loki is right now. She said she always saw him as a son to her… but after all he has done?

Overall, looks very on par with the first movie though a little darker to go with the title I suppose. Can’t wait to see more trailers and sneaks as we get closer to it’s November 8th release date.
