Thor: The Dark World allegedly dropped some major goodies for attendees of yesterday's 2013 Disney Consumer Show in Mexico City, Mexico, namely the trailer! -- Oh,don't get your hopes up just yet, Norse God Groupies, that thunderous treat has not been released and apparently, those who did witness it were watched carefully for recording devices. However, a fairly comprehensive description of said trailer has surfaced from a Facebook for MarvelComicsMexico.
Presented after Marvel International Vice-President, Nigel Cook took the podium of a conference yesterday, it was also allegedly revealed that the trailer will make its proper debut "in 15 days." Or, in other words, April 26, the day Iron Man 3 hits theaters in Mexico. The pairing certainly makes a lot of sense with the film's release just over six months down the pike.
The witness account paints a picture of grandiose battles, a heartfelt reunion between Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Natalie Portman's Jane Foster, more grandiose battles, and some insight into the torrential toughness of the film's dark elven villain, Malekith the Accursed played by former Doctor Who, Christopher Eccleston. It seems that the overpowering Asgardian prince may have bitten off more than he can chew when he calls out Malekith and it might be Jane Foster who pays the price.
Thor: The Dark World gets ready to hammer dark elves so hard they'll have to make ends meet by baking cookies when it hits theaters on November 8. Check out the full MarvelComicsMexico description below!
Translation via ComicBookMovie:
"It starts with a voiceover, is Thor, you see some scenes of a big battle and then Jane Foster and other humans running scared cause something is "coming". Thor says: "I promised I would return for you" as we see Thor arriving Earth to take Jane to Asgard.
Apparently the fight scenes are pretty awesome, and the trailer show that Thor is out of Malekith's league, in fact we can see a very damaged and tired God of Thunder. And since he's no match for the Dark Elve, the mighty Avenger will have to search for help. This lead us to a scene where we see a big crystal prision and there's someone sit on the ground. It's Loki.
Thor says: I need your help, but if you betray me…I will kill you. Loki smiles and answers: What do I have to do?
Then we see another scene of Thor figthing Malekith while Jane is watching. Malekith looks threatening. Jane looks terrified. Thor looks overwhelmed. Malekith stares at Jane and Thor yells: NOOOOO!"
Doing a bit of pesudo-sleuthing of my own (i.e. plugging the original Spanish text into Google Translate), I found some minor points that the CBM translation may not have emphasized. For one thing, the description says that during the "humans running scared" part before Thor's impassioned speech that Natalie Portman's Jane Foster looked "beautiful as a goddess." Also, during the fight with Malekith, Thor is described as looking "desperate." -- Of course, that's just what Google translated and the context might be different, so take that with a grain of salt.
