Thor Is Truely Desperate

I think I've said this before, but I'm going to repeat myself: Thor was my favourite of the Phase 1 Marvel films. Not the usual choice, I know. But (and I'm even including Avengers in this), if I were to sit down and watch any of Phase 1 just on a whim, I'd more likely choose Thor then any of the others. I don't know why. Well, I do actually. Despite fantasy not being my preferred genre, I'm a big fan of classical mythology, I don't care what culture it comes from, and Tom Hiddleston is... just... neat.

So, I have a lot of high hopes for Thor: The Dark World. And this first trailer does little to diminish those hopes. It heightens them. I'm still uneasy about Loki returning, and hope that this will be his MCU swan song (and suspect the same will be true of Portman's Jane Foster), but this film, under the amazing talent of Alan Taylor, looks damned beautiful.

And I can't wait for the awkward conversation about that time Thor helped saved New York from an alien invasion, and didn't even send Jane a text.
