The kid uses his powers to flip. The. ****ing. CEMENT TRUCK. over.

He knows exactly what he's doing. The other two kids are staring at it unmoving, but they don't seem particularly surprised.

It appears to be in an abandoned railway station. Seems to tie in to the shot of dead leaves rustling around Jane as she looks back over her shoulder. And then Malekith's ship/flying rock comes grinding in for a landing.

The kids --- definitely at least one --- seem to have powers. Maybe they're granted "dark power" by Malekith or something, and they're his minions on Midgard, I dunno.

But that **** is freaky, and soooo out of left field. None of these kids are listed on IMDB, and there hasn't been the *slightest* hint of something like this in nary a rumor or set report.

I think it's new superheroes (or possibly villains; but would Marvel really make kids villains? Doubtful.)

That would be a nice arc for him I believe.

I agree. In interviews Hiddleston had hoped for redemption for Loki, and here it is. I think he's going out like Skurge - coldcocking Thor and then taking his place defending the bridge - or whatever Taylor replaces it with - while Jane brings Thor back to Asgard.

Exactly what I felt. I thought it was a Chronicle 2 trailer at first, and somebody had their signals crossed.

The trailer seems to strongly hint that Jane doesn't make it, but that could be deliberate misdirection. But given the behind-the-scenes scuttlebutt (pun....maybe?), Natalie has made no secret she's ready to move on. I'd be willing to bet Jane doesn't get saved.

Plus: Team Sif, yay.

Whooo!! What a great first trailer. Certainly better than most superhero movies' first trailer. It looks and feels darker, grittier, and heavier than the first one. I wouldn't be too surprised if this becomes the best comic book movie of the year. Marvel is really stepping it up.

I think Jane will live, but choose to leave Asgard. We shall see.

The truck is clearly floating in the air already when the kid who flips it is walking up to it. He flips it by pulling at it with his hands.

What surprises the hell out of me, though, is there is almost NO discussion here about the freakin' "prologue" of this trailer.

To wit:

Three kids using magic/TK to flip a cement mixer over, and bowing almost reverentially before it.

Double-yew. Tee. EFF.

That's COMPLETELY out of left field. Did NOBODY else wonder if that's even from the same movie....????

These kids. A very young Indian/Paki/Middle Eastern looking girl; couple of teenage black boys, possibly African/West Indian (given the English setting).

They have POWERS, people. GREAT powers.

I'm thinking Runaways right now. I'm thinking Excalibur. I'm thinking ClanDestine. I'm thinking I don't know enough about the youngster supergroups or the British supergroups, but I'm thinking that's what they *gotta* be.
I'm thinking random bystanders that witness effects of Malekiths arrival

Hmm, looks like they got rid of the style of Asgard from the first film completely.
I didn't think they'd redesign it that much xD

Hope we see some traces of it back in this one.

you see jane put in a chamber of sorts. could be a healing chamber, so who knows if she lives or dies.

if you have to make the kids anything, make them inhumans.

I didn't expect them to change the already existing bits that much either, but I'm glad that they did. It looks a lot better in my view and it's more in line with what I imagined when I first heard that Thor was going to get a movie.

Even if that turns out to be the case, the fact that three kids just wander around a floating construction vehicle and regard it with as much fear and interest as they would a painting in a museum speaks volumes. They're unfazed by what's going on, and seem more curious about it than anything else. That's *not* the reaction of ordinary kids to something so very, very extraordinary.

Does nothing for continuity though. Personally prefer the space viking thing, right in the middle. This feels a little too viking imo, but it looks great for the most part.

It's an awestruck look, hardly new to superhero movies when dealing with bystanders.

Watched it again - the part at the beginning with the trucks on their sides and Thor tells Jane to hold on, the shipping containers in the background were piled up in t shapes. Kinda like Stonehenge?

Or I may be so excited I am reading into it too much!

Last night I kept checking this site like a stalker to see new updates so I decided to finally stop lurking like a creep and finally register. I have very much enjoyed reading everyone's responses.

The trailer looks great IMO. It's definitely different from the first and I really like where they seem to be going. I'm optimistic that they are going to do all the characters and their complicated relationships justice. I don't think that speaks ill of the first movie either, it had a very shakespeare-in-space thing going on that could have been a disaster with another cast and directer. But it was a different movie with a different purpose (a purpose it served well) and succeeded in introducing a very complex world with equally complex characters.

That said, this is a completely different movie, those characters have evolved, and the grittier, more grounded tone may now suit them better.

LOL. Talk about overthinking it. It's something to do with Malekith messing with the physics of things. The end.

you're right they do seem to be stacked very oddly and definitely not how shipping containers should be stacked.

And the truck on it's side looks like it could be the same cement truck (or at least the same type of cement truck) as the scene with the kids at the beginning.

Three kids in some long-abandoned train station are not "bystanders." There's a story behind them, and how and why they got there.

Oh, so you've read the script and seen the movie already, then? Please tell me how it all goes, professor. Just be sure to use spoiler tags, please
