I need the trailer in my life now. I really want to see what a more expanded view of Asgard and the Nine Realms looks like. The stills released so far show a grand production design. That can really be crucial to a story like Thor's. He's one of those Superheroes that always brings more than just himself to the table. He brings a whole world, one we really got a glorified glimpse of in the first film (And glorious it was.) If we are now going to get even more of a sense of Asgardian history and culture I will be pleased as Fenrir eating the moon.

ymmv, of course.

Plus, in a medium with such highlights as Arm Fall Off Boy and Dog Welder, Galactus doesn't even come close to idiotic.

That's what most people are thinking here (and seems most likely) but nothing solid yet.

But isnt he Algrim before he becomes Kurse? If it's Heimdall then it doesnt really look like Elba to me, especially as Elba's Heimdall has a beard.

But he's flying straight up. Seems like the correct physics there to me. I see what you're saying, but it makes more sense in scenes like in your avy.

Yeah, that's definitely Algrim and not Heimdall.

Yep, it's AAA as Algrim.
Kurse armor still remains to be seen. Maybe at SDCC.

Nah. He's got blonde hair. It's a dark elf, so Algrim.

I'm sure his ability came in handy if there was an easily grossed out Supervillain causing trouble.

I can't put a finger on the reason for his popularity.

That's definitely Algrim, his head piece is the same as the other DE's.

Did Superman's cape do that when he flew upwards in MOS, because I want Thor's cape to move like that.

No clue. Honestly, it's not something I paid much attention to. Someone around the MoS forum has an avy with Superman doing that, though.

I wonder how strong Algrim's going to be before he's tranformed, with a title like "Algrim The Strong" he better some decent feats. Speaking of which, I'm excited to see how differences Thor's fight(s) with Algrim and his fight(s) with Kurse.

See that would be a great way to showcase Thor's strength. Show him getting into a match with Algrim with the both of them ripping it up strength wise. Then when Kurse comes on the scene we have a good criteria to judge how strong he has become.

is it painted? awesome! reminds me of the old days of drew struzan magic. That is what I want to see as a theatrical poster, not just a SDCC exclusive.

What makes it even nicer is that an artist painted it by hand, meaning someone took the time to create it. It's far more artistic in nature than just photoshopping a cast collage for a theatrical poster.
