Watch: Teaser Trailer for Thor: The Dark World

Just ahead of the release of their Shane Black-directed Iron Man threequel (3rd May in the US, this Thursday in the UK), Disney and Marvel have rolled out the teaser trailer for the second film in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: The Dark World.

The teaser - which is the latest in the line of big-budget sci-fi flicks that seem to enjoy destroying London - comes via iTunes Movie Trailers, and is embedded above via YouTube. Much as Iron Man 3 seems a lot darker than its predecessors, so too does Thor 2 look a bit more adult - I'm certainly getting a Lord of the Rings vibe from it. That said, it does look freaking great - visually, thematically, it just works.

Thor: The Dark World is directed by Games of Thrones' Alan Taylor, and smashes its way into US cinemas on 8th November, while it hits the UK a week earlier on 30th October.


I'm posting about this right now, but I won't be doing in the near future; A113Animation has a vacancy for a live-action Disney writer, covering, amongst other things, Disney's Marvel releases. If you're interested in the position, see here for details.

    I'm pretty excited about this film. While Iron Man is still the best Marvel film (behind Avengers of course and it could be surpassed by its second sequel this week) to date, I quite enjoyed the first Thor and now that the sequel is being directed by Alan Taylor which was amazing in Game of Thrones (my favorite series ever), my hopes are really high now.
