Thor gives Loki a second chance in the first clip from Thor: The Dark World

Disney has released the first clip from THOR: THE DARK WORLD and it is from the scene in the trailer where Loki utters his mischevious line "where do we start?" You would think that there isn't much more to this moment, but there most certainly is. In fact, the tension is palpable between Thor and Loki and Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston sell it very well. You can tell that Thor doesn't trust Loki while Loki is looking for any opportunity to get his revenge.

While this is a much quieter scene that what the trailers have shown, THOR: THE DARK WORLD looks like it is going to capitalize on the direction from Alan Taylor and deliver great action set pieces alongside some damn fine character work. Hiddleston and Hemsworth are definitely all in for their roles now, no longer trying to feel out the entire back story for each of their iconic characters. THOR: THE DARK WORLD is going to drop us right into the action and take it from there.

In the aftermath of Marvel's THOR and 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.

I am a hell of a lot more excited for THOR: THE DARK WORLD than I was for the original. I love that the movie is grittier and darker than Kenneth Branagh's version, delivering a truly epic film for a larger than life character. I still hold out hope that someday we will get a Donald Blake storyline for the Marvel hero, but until then I am happily excited for this movie.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins. It hits theaters on November 8th.

A great scene

Both Hiddleston and Hemsworth are really nailing their roles here. I think people respond more to Hiddleston because he gets more of the histrionics but Hemsworth is really giving him the foundation he needs to take off in this role. Two great actors playing off each other beautifully.

WER

Great scene, WER trailer came up after Thor and it was amazing. Total Reimagining of Werewolf. Not a big fan of shaky cam, but check it out.

Hmmm

I never really cared for the character Thor much because there was no chance I could ever be him (it's a bit late to become a genius and have billions for me, but I could still be bitten by a spider or come into contact with gamma radiation). However, the film was alright, and this one looks even better. But why do they keep letting Loki come out? After the Avengers, why wouldn't Oden send him to hell or kill him? Doesn't Loki's daughter run hell? But - surprise! - he double crosses him

Doesn't Loki's daughter run hell? But - surprise! - he double crosses him again in this and cuts off his hand!!! I just don't know why you'd ever ask him for help, which brings my next question, if Asgaard is in so much danger, where the fuck are the rest of the Avengers? Or at least the hulk?

They're letting Loki out because the enemy of my enemy is my friend. As dangerous as Loki is, he's nothing compared to Malekith and his invading forces. So Thor has to trust him to have a chance at winning.

And I don't buy the hand-cutting thing for a minute. You guys are the victims of a cleverly cut trailer before a major swerve.

Thor and Loki's relationship is easily the best thing about the Thor movies. Just so much depth from Hemsworth and Hiddleston.

Agree completely, except I would say it's mainly just Hiddleston's performance. I'm not sure if I really get Thor. Is he suppose to be stupid and cocky, but also heroic? Not knowing the character that well, I'm not sure if that's how Hemsworth played it (like generic Mark Wahlberg or the lead in Avatar), or if he just didn't do a great job. Which is actually weird bc I remember thinking he was alright in the first film. I guess I need to see it again. Can someone help me out with Thor's

In general, is he suppose to be stupid? I guess I'm specifically talking about when he interacts with Earth and the Avengers bc of where he's from. Well, help from the comic book readers would be appreciated. And the movie version could be different than the (prolly many) comic version(s). But I don't remember reading a lot of "they didn't get it right!" from fans except that it spent too much time on earth

While not a genius Thor is far from stupid, cocky and headstrong yes, but stupid no, the way he interacts with earth and the avengers is because hes a fish out of water, all things on earth being new to him, and as I remember it he becomes quite wise in his later years

Not "stupid," but he doesn't display much in the way of battle strategy or technical know-how. He's kind of an old-fashioned brute. It'd be nice if they chose to play him a little more intellectual (you know, since Asgard is a few thousand years ahead of us in technology), but because Loki is the smart one, Thor had to play a straight-forward fighter, and there's no way to alter his character at this point.
