Today’s trailer is for Marvel’s next superhero adaptation, Thor. View the trailer below and for analysis, click read more.
Upon first viewing the trailer, the film looks awesome. It looks like it has the potential to be very epic and very suspenseful. It also shows the film is going to have a great cast as well with Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman in supporting roles. However, it is hard to get excited about this film when it is ultimately being made just so another movie can be made. For those of you who may not know what I am talking about, I am talking about the Avengers, the comic book team consisting of Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor and Captain America. After Marvel releases a individual film for each of these heroes (Iron Man and Hulk are done, Captain America comes out a few months after Thor) they are going to release the Avengers, in 2012. With that said, Thor is hard to anticipate when something bigger is just around the corner. It looks like it will be visually beautiful and entertaining, but will more than likely not nearly be as good as his team up with the other three super heroes.
