Thor: The Dark World Trailer

Ahead of tomorrow’s release of Iron Man 3 (here in Australia, anyway) comes the first trailer for the Thor sequel, reuniting the cast form the original, and with Doctor Who’s Christopher Eccleston as bad guy Malekith. I like the way the familiar Marvel logo becomes Thor’s cape, but I’m getting tired of seeing London destroyed again, after witnessing its destruction in G.I. Joe Retaliation, and the upcoming Star Trek sequel.

Just as Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvels The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

The Mighty Thor #9 Preview

It’s good to see artist Pasqual Ferry back doing superhero work. His art on Superman a few years ago was great and now Thor gets his attention. Here’s atext-free preview of next month’s issue of Thor, which finds the blonde adventurer replaced by new hammer wielder Tanarus by the looks of things.

Your First Look At THE MIGHTY THOR #9!

God of Thunder and Avenger, Tanarus is Earth’s mightiest hero…or is he? Loki suspects his “brother” is not who he says he is and in your first look at The Mighty Thor #9 from the creative team of Matt Fraction & Pasqual Ferry, Loki is determined to find the truth! In a race against time, Loki must turn to Dr. Donald Blake for help while the All-Mothers go to battle against Asgardia’s insidious new enemy. See how it all goes down this December in The Mighty Thor #9!

Comics Films Super Bowl Trailers

Below are trailers form today’s Super Bowl telecast in the States. The Thor one has some previously unseen footage, the Captain America is the first official non-photos we’ve seen and is the most exciting, even though Chris Evans’ head on a scrawny body looks a tad weird. Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford together in Cowboys & Aliens is an intriguing partnership, although, like the Thor trailer, it doesn’t show heaps of new footage.

If you want to see screenshots in these fast paced trailers go here for Thor and here for Cap.
