With the Thor teaser trailer to be released online any day now (we’ll keep you posted on Nerdbastards the instant it comes online), Marvel‘s publicity machine is ramping up!
Not only has Marvel released the first official poster for the movie, but descriptions of the teaser have been popping up online by people who have seen its awesomeness.
Here are two descriptions of the teaser followed by the poster located just below the jump, brought to you by our friends at GeekTyrant.
Hey guys, I just happened to wander into a theater that was showing both the new Transformers and Thor trailers. I wasn’t nearly as hot as some have been on the Transformers teaser. Maybe I’ve just seen too many Robots-in-Disguise already. But the Thor trailer (which is showing up with the new drama The Fighter, starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale) should get everyone’s tongues wagging.
But this first, real trailer also shows teases of things that should really have fans of the comics … and fantasy-action fans … excited. Things that many of us were hoping would be in the movie. That includes more, clearer footage of the menacing Destroyer armor, going all “Gort” on his Earthly surroundings, the all-seeing Heimdall (Idris Elba, with glowy eyes), and what appears to be part of the climactic battle between Thor and his evil half-brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston). And best of all is a brief sequence in which Thor strikes down a pack of dark elves by throwing Mjolnir at them. And then his mystical Uru hammer returns to his hand (a power also seen when Odin reclaims the weapon).
Here is another description of the trailer:
The trailer has much of the footage from that leaked reel we saw floating around after SDCC with SHIELD Agent [Coulson] questioning the man who took apart his men as if they were second rate security guards with images of him doing the deed flashing about. “Where were you trained?” We flash to Asgard where Thor is getting a tongue lashing from his father Odin who calls him a boy and remarks that he has brought war to their peaceful land. Flash to a pack of bad ass looking Frost Giants on the march. Flash back and Loki attempts to lodge a protest to Thor’s punishment but Dad won’t hear it. The sentence is passed and we flash to Natalie Portman AKA Jane Foster showing concern and then to Thor, flat on his back, who says something like “Nooo…I’m on Earth, aren’t I” with disdain in his voice. Idris Elba as Heimdall gets a fair amount of flash time as well, though it’s nothing but him making faces and such. We also see a couple of Asgardian ladies, one of which being Jaimie Alexander as Sif. Some quick Frost Giant battle rounds out the excitement, some explosions go off and we see [Destroyer] is causing chaos in the middle of it all. So that’s about it! You’ll mainly want to see this in 3D and of course…FROST GIANT RAMPAGE!!
For those of you have been living under a rock, here is the official plot synopsis for the movie Thor.
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
