The first “Thor” movie took some of us by surprise. The Asgardean Avenger was never a favorite character of mine, so while I didn’t doubt that Marvel would do well with his debut movie, I wasn’t expecting as much as I did from “Captain America.” But I was pleasantly surprised.
So with “Iron Man 3” just a couple of weeks away, we get a trailer for “Thor: The Dark World,” which opens Nov. 8.
The trailer looks good, although it was amusing to see the preview opening in steel-gray modern-day London. That city is getting a hell of a beating this year, between this and “Star Trek Into Darkness.”
Most of the cast gets a few shots in the trailer, led by Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, of course.
And can that possibly be Christopher Eccleston under all that makeup as villain Malekith?
And they saved the best for last: Tom Hiddleston, rocking some “Rock of Ages” hair, as Loki.
Wonder if Odin had SHIELD build that glass box?
