Now, we’re getting word that Marvel has screened early Thor: The Dark World footage to Italian film enthusiasts at the “Sorrento Professional Cinema Days.”
The mention of a desperate, irrational, and “increasingly angry” Loki is also an interesting image – given that many expected the villain to experience a change of heart in Thor 2. That said, the descriptions don’t necessarily give an indication of where Loki’s fury is directed and it’s still very possible that fallout from his actions in Thor and The Avengers (possibly the death of a loved one) cause the character to harness his rage and use it to join the fight against Malekith and Asgard’s attackers.
Then there’s the question of that “Black Spaceship.” Could Thanos make a Thor 2 cameo appearance?
In the preview, a voice-over is heard with the oath of the God of Thunder as the new supreme ruler. We see a clash between Thor and the enemy army, in a world that is neither Asgard let alone the Earth. We see Chris Hemsworth wielding his hammer and Tom Hiddleston as Loki first wounded without a helmet, with long, loose hair and then imprisoned; his anger increasingly desperate and irrational. Then there’s a scene later in which he is free again, but still furious.
Against the backdrop of a forest, in the middle of a clearing, among the dust, we in fact face off anthropomorphic creatures, but also a big “gorilla” krosan tusker: a rather alien fauna varies so, although not extreme in size (there are also some envoys/ambassadors of a people mysterious, with oval face and black eyes, elongated and sunken).
The rest of the images show glimpses of Asgard, with Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Natalie Portman in clothes that seem more like a princess; an Asgardian princess. In between, there are images of an epic battle on horseback, who seems to have left an epic cloak-and-dagger. The threat to the Asgardians is certainly a new alien race pale (now identified as the dark elves).
A black spaceship shaped irregularly looks like a serious threat to Asgard. More sequences show Natalie Portman then alongside Thor lying on the ground, probably overwhelmed in a clash.
