THOR Trailer Hammers the Web

The extended trailer for Kenneth Branagh's Thor that played at Comic-Con last Saturday has been making the rounds on the interwebs since yesterday, but I'd been hesitant to post because it keeps getting yanked by Marvel.  I'd planned to just hold out for something official, but since that doesn't appear to be forthcoming, go check out the vid over at The Pursuitist (for as long as it stays up, anyway).  All the imagery and iconography of Marvel's Thunder God are there, and the trailer does a pretty solid job of setting up the film's premise and characters.

In addition to leads Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, we also get to see Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and the various other gods of the Asgardian realm.  I also like that Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson character (seen previously in the two Iron Man flicks) is being used as the link to connect the various entries in the Marvel Movie-verse.  Overall, it's a solid collection of footage, and while I can't say I was blown away by anything I saw, I think that's just a reflection of the consistent quality that Marvel has brought to their in-house productions.
