After the last batch of photos for Marvel’s upcoming Thor movie hit the web, a lot of people were concerned that it just looked way too goofy. It seems like Marvel is now attempting to nip that bad buzz in the bud as an extended five minute trailer from Comic-Con has “leaked” online and made fanboys fall in love all over again. The clips showcase a variety of scenes including some moments between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Zeus (Anthony Hopkins) in the Hall of Asgard, and Thor on Earth where he meets Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) also figures prominently in many of the scenes.
There’s no question that Thor needs to strike a difficult balance between the fantasy stuff and the real world superhero stuff, and it looks like director Kenneth Branagh is doing a good job of it. I do think that it feels a bit like an ’80s movie (Masters of the Universe anyone?) with the way that Thor arrives on Earth and blends in with the common folk. Either way, who knows how long it will be online for, so make sure you check out this footage while you can. Thor hits theatres on May 6th, 2011; the trailer is embedded after the jump.
