Latest trailer for Thor sequel released

Just hours ago, the official Marvel YouTube page released the second trailer for Thor: The Dark World. At 2 minutes and 33 seconds, the preview is approximately 30 seconds longer than the first trailer released in April. Now, that’s a long time to expose fans to new content, but the trailer doesn’t quite deliver as much as we’d like. Instead, we’re shown the same scenes with the only new content being pyrotechnics (blown up buildings and cars), the occasional shot of crowds running from monsters, and a few snippets of never-before-seen dialogue.

Following in the wake of the massively popular The Avengers, we’re sure it has enough hype to stand on its own without the need for extensive trailers. But as greedy (and excited!) fans, we’d like to see a little bit more. More specifically, epic shots of the legion of baddies that are threatening Thor and forcing him out into battle.
