Hahaha! I'm at work so I kind of cheated and skipped to the halfway point to see the inevitable end of trailer action.

Is there really that much bad humour in the first half?

Solid trailer. The Asgard stuff is full of win and the Destroyer scenes look great. The CGI towards the end still needs some work though.

Edit: I wasn't really put off by the comedy as others. I think Thor being out of his element would bring some humorous moments.

I LOVE the tone of the film. It's not overly serious, which DOES NOT mean it is some comedy. Those complaints are hideous. I think Thor's interactions with the humans will be really fun, but intriguing at the same time. The CGI could use a little more work, but they could touch it up before release. I'm glad that they displayed how much power Thor has in the trailer as well, very impressive.

And to those saying this was Marvel's Green Lantern trailer, I disagree. Green Lantern's main problem, to me, was the fact that it did not possess a "WOW" moment. Thor's trailer displayed his incredible power perfectly and that sets it apart from the average/ cliche GL trailer.

I didn't want to bring up the matter, but since it has already been addressed, I just want to put my opinion out there.

Loved the trailer. Can't wait.

He gets tased, he wants more coffee, and the girl that isn't Jane makes a couple jokes, I think that's pretty much it. Four amusing parts in a 2:30 minute trailer! OHNO!

Keep in mind, this trailer isn't to wet the pants of fanboys. This trailer has humorous moments that will appeal to the general public.

Apparently, the posters on here don't have a sense of humor.

Humor doesn't equal s*** film, as some may think.

It's the nature of the jokes. The NATURE of them is just plain ridiculous for THOR.

After being unimpressed and in all honesty dissapointed by the Super-bowl spot, I really enjoyed this trailer, really hope it lives upto expectations.

What's the problem? He was mortal and didn't have any powers.

wow, I think people are way over reacting to the humor here. It didn't seem out of place at all, and it's all on Earth. I think it'll create a good contrast of how life in Asgard is compared to Earth.

saying they can't release this movie because the humor is "low brow" is just ridiculous. slapstick has always been used to humble arrogant characters. but now its unacceptable because THIS IS THOR!!!!!

please.

So was this the final trailer before the movie's release, or will there be one more?

One of the major themes of this film is humility.

What's a better way of learning to be humble than being made fun of?

Everything was funny, but it does seem like people here don't have much of a sense of humor.

This isn't a hardcore drama, this is a summer blockbuster. Humor is good.

The scenes on Earth feel a lot like JMS' Thor, which I love. It had a lot of charm and you see that coming through in the humour.

The scenes on Asgard, though, just look pure oldschool Kirby. It makes me feel like I could almost be watching the New Gods. Absolutely cool stuff. I noticed the shot of Odin fighting featured him without his eyepatch--perhaps a flashback to the origin of Loki?

Thor, in full costume, on Earth is still noticabley absent--though the warrior's three are seen in full costume, so clearly there's no reason to worry that Thor will spend his entire time on Earth in hobo clothes, haha. That's probably an important moment they don't want to show in trailers.

Looking good, really. Trailers can't always be trusted, but there's a lot of cool stuff here and no apparent disasters.

Yeah, humor in movie trailers suck. Big time summer action flicks should have the tone of Taxi Driver and The Shawshank Redemption

Trying to interact with someone like Thor would be funny, especially since one would actually think he is full of ****.

I'd say it feels real and not overly serious. Honestly, if I were in the same situation as those characters I would have a good laugh at the crazy guy too.
