The good geeks at ComicBookMovie.com have gotten their hands on the 5-minute sizzle reel/trailer for the Thor movie that was shown at Comic-Con. Within the first minute, it completely erased all my hesitations about seeing this mythical tale on the big screen. You’re about to see why Thor quickly became one of the most buzzed-about panels at the Con.
Update: The original video embed was disabled due to copyright stuff, yadda yadda… Try this one, which seems to work (at least for the moment).
Update 2: Sigh… It would appear that the powers that be have issued their usual cease-and-desist orders. Bummer. The trailer seriously rocked. I know it was a Comic-Con exclusive, but I can’t imagine why Marvel wouldn’t want it to be seen by pretty much everybody, now that the Con is over. Shall we hope for the best and think that maybe they’re preparing to release it on the Net on their own terms? (Even though it’s more likely that Thor himself cannot withstand the mighty hammer of the lawyers?)
