Why The Russos Are The Best Thing to Happen to the MCU Since Joss Whedon
The extended trailer for Marvel’s Thor that won over so many attendees at Comic-Con International has found its way online, and … wow. It’s so much better than I imagined.
The teaser clearly lays out the movie’s plot, with Thor banished to Earth (of course), leaving Loki to succeed Odin as ruler of Asgard. Better still, it offers a good look at the Destroyer in action, and plenty of footage of Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.
Now if we can just figure out how the Infinity Gauntlet fits in.
NOTE: The trailer has been removed by the host site.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the epic adventure “Thor” spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Jamie Alexander and Anthony Hopkins, Thor opens on May 6, 2011.
