WATCH: New Trailer for ‘Thor: The Dark World’ (VIDEO)

Marvel sequel bows Nov. 8

After the huge success of “The Avengers” and “Iron Man 3,” Marvel hopes its positive streak at the box office continues with “Thor: The Dark World” having released the latest trailer for the sequel.

Starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, the film focuses on its title character who is out to save the universe from another destructive force.

While the first trailer only gave us a glimpse of Thor’s brother and nemesis Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, this trailer gives plenty of more time to him and also delivers more over-the-top set pieces that should excite the fans of the original.

Given the success of “The Avengers” and Hemsworth’s rise as one of the biz’s top leading men, it will be interesting to see the turnout for this film after its predecessor brought in nearly $450 million worldwide.

The pic bows on Nov. 8.

  1. I foresee a hilarious future here. Given the trades desperation to seek/create bad news (WWZ, Pacific Rim are all going to be mega-flops, before anyone has even seen them etc.) Thor: The Dark World, makes close to double the amount of Thor say $850m+ and is written up as a “failure / disappointment!! It’s coming…

    The first Thor is the best Marvel movie aside from The Avengers.

    • You may be right. One of the reasons, is that branagh understood that his, relatively limited given what he had to do with it compared to other MCU films, budget was best used by taking practical effects and enhancing them with CGI. He had to do a lot more with his budget than any of the other Marvel films (two completely new worlds had to be created, outside of the powers of Thor, Loki, Odin The Destroyer & The Frost Giants. far less cash than Green Lantern or Man of Steel either. So what he did was as much practical as was possible and then digital where there was no other choice, and to take the Frost giants, guys in make up, and make them look bigger.

      The characters and story were also excellent and a lot of fun.

      There’s a reason Thor is the most popular film outside of Iron Man and the best renting/selling of all the MCU characters when the Avengers came out. Thor & Loki are great together and BOTH characters that the public loves.

      I guess if you really, really love CGI effects the first Thor was great. If you’re into good writing and interesting characters, not so much. Thor is the bottom of the barrel as far as Marvel produced features go. It’s better than crap like The Fantastic Four (which Marvel had no hand in) but not in the same league as Iron Man 1 or 3 or Captain America. I don’t know that it was even as good as The Hulk reboot. The new Thor looks even more idiotic and effects heavy than the first one was. I predict a big letdown for Thor 2 after the explosive box office of Iron Man 3 and The Avengers. Thor won’t flop but it’s not going to keep Marvel’s hot streak alive, either. It’ll be lucky to do Man of Steel money, and Man of Steel is widely considered a box office disappointment. The new Captain America probably has a much better shot at being Marvel’s next blockbuster than Thor 2 does.

    I didn’t like the first Thor movie all that much and this one kinda looks worse. I might wait it to go to video.
