Thor and Loki may be brothers, but they ain’t partners and they sure ain’t friends!
Okay, so maybe Loki isn’t the greatest brother a guy could ask for. Be that as it may, you can’t tell me that the best thing about this trailer for Thor: The Dark World isn’t watching him lord his sudden and deliciously unwelcome importance over everyone around him. He is burdened with glorious purpose indeed!
He also seems to have somewhat nicer digs in the Marvel edition of Asgaard than in what I suppose you could call Asgaard Classic, where he was bound to a stone with the entrails of his son while a venomous snake dripped poison onto him, causing him to writhe in agony until Ragnarok. His joint in this trailer looks even nicer than the one Magneto got, although I bet Thor never stops by to play chess.
But that’s neither here nor there – what really matters is that the fabric of reality will be torn apart, and they’ve only got 48 hours to stop it! Or something like that.
Thor: The Dark World, starring Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Chris O’Dowd, Ray Stevenson, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Eccleston, Rene Russo and that whatshisface guy, arrives in theaters on November 8.
