I quite liked Kenneth Branagh’s take on Thor. Sure not everything worked, but it was a pretty distinct comic book vision at the very least. I’m not sure why, but I hadn’t really given much thought to the looming sequel Thor: The Dark World. Marvel fatigue perhaps? But the last couple of films I have caught at the cinema have played this second trailer for the film beforehand and I have to say I think it looks like a whole lot of fun. I especially like the look of the interactions between Thor and Loki. I didn’t feel he was a big enough deal to be the main Avengers villain, but it looks like the relationship between him and his broseph could be a nice focus for this film.
Thor was one of the less well received of the first cycle of Marvel films. Whilst it had issues, I thought it was a pretty interesting flick. The sequel will be hitting screens this year, and this trailer suggests plenty of intrigue coming our way. It is one of the few trailers where the voiceover works and the whole thing has me pretty keen to see the end product.
