Just ahead of the release of their Shane Black-directed Iron Man threequel (3rd May in the US, this Thursday in the UK), Disney and Marvel have rolled out the teaser trailer for the second film in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: The Dark World.
The teaser - which is the latest in the line of big-budget sci-fi flicks that seem to enjoy destroying London - comes via iTunes Movie Trailers, and is embedded above via YouTube. Much as Iron Man 3 seems a lot darker than its predecessors, so too does Thor 2 look a bit more adult - I'm certainly getting a Lord of the Rings vibe from it. That said, it does look freaking great - visually, thematically, it just works.
Thor: The Dark World is directed by Games of Thrones' Alan Taylor, and smashes its way into US cinemas on 8th November, while it hits the UK a week earlier on 30th October.
