Well, there’s one genie that can’t go back in the bottle. A digital copy of the trailer for Thor — the same footage shown during Marvel’s Saturday panel at Comic Con — has hit the internet. See it after the break.
This can’t possibly be official, so it may not last long. And I’m of two minds about posting it, but the sad fact is that whether we post it or not, it’s out in the wild. But the quality is good enough that it represents the footage properly. Watching this footage a couple more times outside the enraptured crowd in Hall H, I still like it. The scope still looks grand, and I’m hopeful that the two ‘halves’ of the film, Earth and Asgard, will come together nicely.
When there’s a proper HD version available we’ll let you know, but in the meantime…
The Official Plot Synopsis:
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.
