Looks interesting enough. Surprised to see Loki in it. Had no idea he was going to be in this one.

I'm officially off board then. That effeminate douche is the worst excuse for a "super villain" I have ever seen. It's tiresome already, two movies is enough. Has anyone even bothered to read the comics?

Hela would have been a way better choice.

Hopefully Portman doesn't die in this one. I don't want to see Thor yelling "Nooooo!"

Loki doesn't play the main villain here. That role is set up for another character from the Thor comics, and we got a very brief glimpse of him in the trailer.  This is clearly just a teaser trailer.

+1  I'm glad they have Loki in, but not the main baddie.  I loved the older Thor comics where they bothered to at least still show cameos of key characters.  We should get an update on Loki, but don't want to see a lot of him again in this next film.

Tom Hiddleston is HUGE with the ladies.  Sploosh factor 11 on a scale of 1 to 10.  No way were they going to put out a Thor movie without him.

Wow.  Tom Hiddleston got into character and costume to introduce the Thor - The Dark World panel?  Looks like a case of an actor appreciating what a comic book movie can do for their career.

There's no Tom Hiddleston; he really is Loki.

There's something to be said for not killing off a comic book movie villain too soon.

Very cool as trailers go.  I'm glad to see that Loki is still in the mix.  In the movies thus far, the relationship between Thor and Loki has helped both characters immensely.  And I think Alan Taylor was a good choice for a director this time around.  Kenneth Branaugh did a good job with establishing the characters in the first film.  But Taylor's experience on Game of Thrones has shown that he can work well in an immersive fantasy type of genre and give it a sense of realism that sucks in the audience.

But the question remains:  will the audience buy "Chuck" as the new Fandral?  ;)

"Thor: The Dark World" premiered in London yesterday, and early reviews are pretty positive:

I'm eager to see this in a few weeks.

Just saw it tonight. Don't want to say too much. This one is on-par or possibly even better than the first Thor movie. There are some really great moments of humor injected into the story.

Is Chuck really Fandral? What happened to the original guy?

The original guy is Prince Charming in Once Upon a Time and it was a scheduling conflict.
