Loki Steals New THOR: THE DARK WORLD Trailer

Maybe Marvel should've titled the movie Loki: The Dark World instead?

Hot off his well-received appearance in Hall H at last month's San Diego Comic-Con, Tom Hiddleston's character Loki turns his smarmy charm up to eleven in the second trailer for Thor: The Dark World released this morning.  The new two-minute UK trailer features considerable new footage, including new scenes of everyone's favorite God of Mischief.

"After all this time," says Loki as his foster brother Thor descends into an Asgardian prison, "now you come to visit me, brother.  Why?  To mock?"  "I need your help," replies Thor, "and I wish I could trust you."  "If you did," counters Loki, "you'd be the fool I always took you for."

Following the familiar shot of a giant stalactite-shaped object carving a path of destruction through the University of Greenwich in London, Thor's love interest Jane Foster asks "What's going to happen?"  "I gave you my word," says Thor as he arrives to face the threat, "I would return for you."  Thor takes Jane to Asgard, the Realm Eternal, where she finally gets to see Thor's home.

Idris Elba's character Heimdall then gives Thor some advice as we glimpse the Destroyer once again, saying "You face an enemy known only to a few."  "Known only to one," corrects Thor.

Meanwhile, no one is happy that Loki's helping out.  "You even think about betraying him..." warns Ray Stevenson's Volstagg, but Jaimie Alexander's Sif finishes the line by drawing her sword to Loki's neck.  "...and I'll kill you."  This is immediately followed by Jane punching Loki squarely in the face.  "That was for New York," Jane says vengefully, which only makes Loki smile in response.  "I like her," he says, still grinning.

But just before everyone completely forgets who this movie's Big Bad is supposed to be, Christopher Eccleston's Malekith the Accursed begins speaking in a voiceover.  "Thor, your bravery will not ease your pain," says Malekith.  "Your family, your world will be extinguished."

More glimpses of destruction at Greenwich follow, with Stellan SkarsgĂ„rd's Dr. Erik Selvig warning "We're running out of time" and Jane warning "The very fabric of reality can be torn apart."  But hey, don't worry, Thor's here.  "I'll find a way to save us all," he says over trailer music trying hard to pump up your excitement.

A final quick scene shows Thor facing off against a large stone giant that Sif tells him is "All yours."  Thor looks over his opponent for a moment, then lets his hammer Mjolnir fly and quickly reduces the giant to a pile of stones and rocks.  "Anyone else?" he asks.

Thor: The Dark World arrives in U.S. theaters on November 8th.  If you'd like to see the trailer in full, you can view it below thanks to Marvel UK...

  1. Tom Hiddleston is such an amazing and gifted actor that when I see the next Thor movie I will fast foward to only the Loki parts. No one plays or even voices him on video games better than Hiddleston. Thank you Tom, you took a norse God and played him with perfection,grace and perfection.
