Thor: The Dark World Debuts An Extended TV Spot
Before Chris Hemsworth's Thor goes off to battle alongside the Avengers against James Spader as Ultron in 2015, he will first have to face off against giant rock monsters, Dark Elves, his mischievous brother Loki and the evil Malekith The Accursed in his next solo film, Thor: The Dark World. And today we get a brand new look at what we can expect. Marvel Studios (via Comic Book Movie) has released a brand new extended TV spot for the upcoming film which you can watch above.
It's rather surprising that we're already seeing this kind of preview for the film. TV spots usually don't air until much closer to a movie's actual release date and Thor: The Dark World won't be hitting theaters until November. That said, this new clip doesn't exactly have a ton of new footage. Instead, the quick one minute and two seconds is mostly made up of stuff that we got to see in the two previously released trailers. For comparison purposes you can watch both below:
While there may not be a great deal of fresh material, that's not stopping us from being very exciited about the film. Director Alan Taylor got plenty of experience helming epic fantasy stories while making episodes of HBO's series Game of Thrones, and it would appear that he has put those skills to work making the Thor sequel. What's more, the shift in the relationship dynamic between the titular hero and Loki should be fun to watch. It's very clear that Thor doesn't trust his brother in the slightest, and it will be great to see that play out between Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston.
Cool as all of the footage from Thor: The Dark World has been, what I'm still waiting to see is more of Christopher Eccleston's Malekith. We've heard him speak and we've seen brief snippets of him on video, but there really hasn't been much substantial. What could they be hiding? We already know that at one point in the film half of his face gets scarred, so it's not that. Perhaps they will reveal more as we get closer to the film's release on November 8th.
