’Cross the Rainbow Bridge of Asgard,
Where the booming heavens roar,
You’ll behold in breathless wonder,
The God of Thunder, Mighty Thor!
Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures have released a second trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s Thor. It’s far different than the one shown during the superbowl which was built off the footage released from last years San Diego Comic Con. We see Thor talking in a douche viking voice. There are more shots of Asgard and battle scenes against both the Frost Giants and Destroyer. Loki gets a couple of good close-ups and we see a hell of a lot more Natalie Portman (yum).
I sat there, drool slowly dribbling down my chin for about 5 minutes after watching that trailer. I think I had a Nerdgasm. If the movie lives up to this trailer I might have to buy enough movie tickets to clear the seats around me or at least offer those sitting around me “Gallagher melon crushing style” tarps.
What did you think? I loved the little touches. When Thor throws down the coffee mug, breaking it because he liked the drink so much, I thought, damn that’s what he would do at the local tavern after a great tankard of mead. I hope that subtle humor will weave throughout the film.
If Thor rocks the theaters with big numbers then it will only fuel the upcoming movies attendances. I say, BRING IT!
Up-to-speed info after the jump

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.
