    Because he's really the Ninth Doctor in disguise?

    And now we have video from the set. 15 videos, to be precise. Youtube

    SuperheroHype picked out videos 1, 12 and 13 as the best of the bunch, for those who don't feel like dealing with all 15.

    I am glad I am not the only one who thought that. I have really no knowledge of Thor in the comics and not much of a fantasy fan. But I really did enjoy the first film a lot! So I hope this does not fall into the trap of generic fantasy film battle scenes I try to avoid.

    I know using toys as a guide for what may be represented in a film is unreliable at times but I'm going to pose this thought anyway. With the art and figs showing Thor wearing his helmet is it possible this film is going finally give us more of Thor in his battle helmet? Loki has been sporting his and I've seen it several times here and other places that was something many wanted more of for Dark World.

    Probably not. Unless they've changed it, the helmet looks kind of silly and was reportedly uncomfortable for Hemsworth to wear. Also, it would obscure Hemsworth's face from certain angles.

    What I figured I just thought I'd pose the question and see if anyone might've heard or had a more solid reason for it to be a possibility.

    I recall those reports from the first film about it being difficult to wear. Was thinking maybe, as you say, a redesign had happened.

    I think there was a lot of stuff with the helmet in the merchandising for the first one too, so I wouldn't read much into that.

    Awesome!

    ETA: Interesting parallel to Avengers with Loki's dialog--

    Avengers: "How desperate are you to call upon such lost creatures to defend you?"

    Thor:TDW: "You must be truly desperate, to come to me for help."

    The trailer looks a little more epic than the last film which is a good thing for a Thor movie. Now if he gets turned into a frog that will be awesome.

    I agree it looks bigger than the first film. Looking forward to it.

    Bringing Jane to Asgard should be fun . . . although I still think Thor belongs with Sif!

    (Good to see her prominently featured in the trailer as well.)

    This is truly a great first teaser trailer!!

    The scope looks epic and the tone is ominous!

    This should pass $200m domestic for sure!!

    Are the warriors three in this one? Didn't spot them in the trailer.
    It would be unfortunate if they've been cut. I liked Volstagg Pullo.

    The Warriors 3 are in this cause Fandral was recast.

    Thor is one of my favorite Marvel characters, as it was the first comic I collected when I decided to collect comics in 1979. Because of that, and my love of Jack Kirby's techno-mythology, the Thor movie was my favorite of the Marvel solo films.

    However, as someone on another board said, the Superman trailer is SO well done, that it's gonna be awhile before super hero movie trailers catch up and that the trailer for Thor 2 looks like a trailer for a movie on SyFy.

    And it did.

    But it's still the next Marvel movie that I'm looking forward to the most. Yeah, I'm still anxious to see IM3 and CA2, but I'm more excited to see more of the Nine Realms, Eccelston as Malekith, more Asgard and Thor kicking godly ass!
