"I'll find a way to save us all," says the Norse god of thunder in the first trailer for "Thor: The Dark World," and so does the movie, apparently, preserve a place for all of its original cast.
Tom Hiddelston's devious Loki looks like he'll have plenty to do … Natalie Portman's Dr. Jane Foster is through waiting around on Earth … Anthony Hopkins' all-god Odin is still instructing his warring sons … Idris Elba's Heimdall gets a few lines … Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgård, Jaimie Alexander, check, check, check … basically the gang's all here.
Missing from the trailer: A clear, sustained look at the villainous dark elves, or Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as baddie Kurse.
But come on, this is Marvel. There are plenty of teasers and clips to come.
