Wow we’re headed to another Marvel vs debate instead of talking about this actual trailer. Seriously stop trying to prove one editor is better and try enjoy comics while they are still published. Anyhow, the visuals in that trailer do look fantastic even though I am afraid the plot might be thin a bit. I will still be looking this one up. I hope for depth and for Marvel to cut a bit on the cheese… even though cheese sells.
So far so good, I am still seeing that movie, no 3D please kill that hype already!
2011 is going to be a wonderful year for Superheroes.
I am absolutely stoked for Green Lantern, and now Thor, the film I was most worried about, looks to be shaping up nicely. The trailer did alot to ease some fears I had…the full trailer I hope will ease the rest.
Though, I am concerned, at the moment, with Thor’s fighting…the quick scenes made him seem like a mix martial artist…I have always seen him more as a slobber-knocker style fighter.
I’m from the 90s x-men generation and have always been a marvel reader (found it too troublesome to engage in the DC lore now that im in my late 20s so comics is a small part of my life) but i’m not a thor/avengers fan because, well, i was just crazy over the x-family. Unfortunately the movie mirrors my interest in the thor comic but ill be watching it nonetheless if it reviews above 60-70%. Hope it does well, as i consider myself part of the comic book readership, I always get a kick out of successful comic book movies, be it DC or Marvel.
After seeing this I’m even more baffled why producers thing Wonder Woman couldn’t be made into a serious film. It’s the same basic storyline…godly figure, from another world of magics and myth, fish out of water, protector of earth/humans, etc etc etc.
@I-Ching: Warner Brothers CLEARLY has issues ~ I mean, after there insanely popular Batman movie from the 90s, it took nearly 20. TWENTY!!! TWEN-TEEEEEEE!!!! years to get a mediocre Superman movie made, while Marvel’s partners (Sony and 20th Century Fox) brought the incredibly successful (and 2/3s pretty great) Spider-Man and X-Men franchises to bear (not to mention the lesser ones like Blade, Daredevil and the FF). that is literally insane.
…and then Marvel launches Marvel Studios, and gets 5 films done (or almost done) before WB can get it’s first out. (or 4, i forget if Cap or GL comes out first). Warner Brothers IS a movie studio!!!! Marvel had to BECOME one!
I know this is ‘teh internets’ and everyone and their mom thinks they can armchair CEO a huge corporation like WB, but is seems nonsensical to me that they’ve let Marvel get so far ahead in mind share and sheer number of movies like this.
Marvel comics sucks nowadays. They might have driven all their resources in making these movies. Almost all of their comics have awesome covers but disgusting interior art. I hope this trailer ain’t like their comics.
This looks good, but they’ve played way too much of their hand.
With the 5 minute comic-on trailer and now this, we’ve pretty much seen the movie. Just add in a couple of fight scenes and ta-daaaa!
Looking forward to it for the 90 minuter it’ll be and the cog it’ll fill in the Avengers movie machine.
But GL has a bigger scope, and I think Warners/DC is right to keep a lot of material close to the vest.
ok…saw it. it’s ok…but I’m really hoping that Marvel rushes to pull this trailer over the weekend and bring back the good trailer…the one that I’ve only been able to find in one place now on line. That one rated a 10/10. this one rates about a 4/10 IMO.
Looks pretty good. A few new things beyond the Comic Con stuff (new effects, most notably). I was kind of annoyed when he said “Earth” rather than “Midgard” upon awakening, but it looks pretty good overall.
As far as the Marvel/DC argument, I’m looking forward to GL, Thor and Captain America next year. The more the merrier!
THOR looks to be a pretty cool movie. Looking forward to it and Cap America. I think Green Lantern looks great too, I’ll be seeing that for sure. All of them look fun. People need to stop being critics and just enjoy the movies we’re getting nowadays.
Everybody is spoiled now so everybody thinks they are a critic.
The whole 3D thing is very annoying though. There needs to be restrictions in the film industry to stop studios from scamming the public.
It’s not right. If a movie is not filmed for 3D they should not allow the studios to convert it into 3D after the fact. It’s cheap, pathetic, and unfair to do that to audiences. It’s clearly a scam and they are running with it right now because it’s not illegal. That needs to stop.
Why do people think this trailer presents anything greater than the Green Lantern trailer? They are both the exact same thing. Presenting a vision only people who have followed their series can understand. Both trailers are loaded with CGI. From both trailers the average viewer only sees it’s a special effects superhero movie.
That being said I think Green Lantern has more story to drive the characters so I expect to be disappointed in Green Lantern because I don’t think the movie will do him justice. As for Thor, keep in mind I have never been a Marvel Comics fan, it looks like the Thor movie will be truer to the Marvel Comics characters. I don’t know if that will have a significant effect on people wanting to see it though. But I don’t think people going to see Thor are going to have any great expectations like those going to see Green Lantern.
Of the two I think Thor has the edge. Not because these trailer prove that it is a better movie, rather because there is less room with Thor to disappoint fans. Evaluating Thor alone, I think there is too much special effects, 3D is an overkill, but in this trailer the actors look good so maybe what the trailer doesn’t show is stronger than what it does.
I hope everyone gets the glitter out of their eyes before this crapper starts. It’s my dream that these movies start to finally bomb left and right and they no longer get made. I’d rather have no live action movies instead of crappy ones.
This looks just as pathetically stupid as the Green Lantern one.
Looks like there’s simply a lot of hurt DC fanboys getting their panties in a bunch over this. Whatever; personally, all I’m mostly seeing is a distillation of the Comic-Con sneak peek, and that was pretty great to begin with. But the movie people already had me going as soon as they announced Natalie Portman was co-starring in it.
Looks good. The casting looks pretty good and I’m interested in seeing where the story goes. They got a realistically muscular looking guy to play Thor who can actually probably act well enough to pull it off, which is way better than getting some lame WWE wrestler looking type or somebody who looks like the dude who kill Apollo Creed in the Rocky movie. Appreciate it, Marvel.
The Destroyer is spot on, as created by Jack (King) Kirby. I’m willing to overlook the multi-ethnic cast, as a necessary effect of a more modern retelling. I would have been more happy if upon awakening “Thor” had exclaimed, “Oh no, this is Midgard”.
The film looks really good and appears an accurate adaptation. Thor tricked into killing Frost Giants by Loki, thus breaking a truce established by Odin. Odin banishes Thor to Earth as a consequence, which leaves the door open for Loki to take over after he either poisons Odin or Odin undergoes the “Odin Sleep.” Thor then has to redeem himself in order to regain his power and save Earth and Asgard! How could that not be a solid storyline?
As usual the DC vs Marvel, Marvel vs DC comments are as pathetic as ever – it’s amazing to see how fanboys allow themselves to be manipulated in the whole “us vs them” mindset established by the big two who are much, much, more alike than different.

Exactly, That’s about as Silver-Age a plot line as you can get,I wonder will they give Jack a mention in the opening credits?
You know “based on concepts from Nordic Mythology by….”.
so sick of 3D. 3D is a novelty that most theater goers are tired of, why is it being shoved down our throat? I’m a big thor guy, but I’ll only be seeing this in 2D. Looks more promising than I thought it would. Not as good as it could be though, at least from the trailer.
The earth stuff looks fine- it’s the melodrama of Asgard I’m worried about. “I take your power…and I cast you out!” Really? That’s the best dialog we could find for that scene? On the other hand, the scene where he wakes up and realizes where he is struck me as humorous and character-revealing at the same time. Looking forward to the rest of the film.
It wasn’t bad. The reason for Thor on earth needs work as to make him spoiled etc, is pushing it. Not original in the sense that at some point he’s all forgiven and gets his powers back just in time to beat the bad guy. Loki was wearing his helmet, good, and I saw Thor with his on which not having it is like Cap without wings on his mask. We’ll see. Oh and I agree Hal Jordon cracking jokes is not a good sign. It needs to be great. Also when you count up all the weak marvel movies against the same for DC, Marvels not looking good just because they made more. Can we have a really “good” Ironman instead of another joke.
wait to c it then judge.it’s insane how a short clip can make u judge this and GL so harshly.but it’s life i guess.so,let’s as comic fans just enjoy the whole bandwagon of comic-based movies,i wanna c em all!!!!!!!!!!
i love marvel,haven’t been exposed to much DC,but they are cool too.always loved the hal jordan costume.so,we got thor,cap,GL next year.it’s gonna be fun.it should be hollywood being taken over by the comic book geeks and we all win.not a marvel vs. dc thing.that’s just sad.
