HOLY SHIT THAT IS 2 MINUTES OF PURE AWESOME.

Some scary chick just crushed Thor’s hammer and destroyed Asgard? Sure that’s cool but the needle doesn’t move until I see JEFF GOLDBLUM make the most absurd cameo I’ve ever seen aside from Jimmy Fallon in Band of Brothers.  I have no idea what’s actually going on but it looks like once Asgard was destroyed, Thor was thrown onto some planet that resembles the Star Wars Ep. 1 trash heap planet Tatooine where he is imprisoned and forced to be a gladiator. We see the appearance of everyone’s lovable part-time villain Loki, the debut of Thor’s new helmet which is much more MCU than traditional comic style, and of course Gladiator Hulk which single handedly made my day.

The biggest thing I took away from this trailer is the subtle yet obvious attempt to begin tying Thor into Guardians of the Galaxy. Classic Rock playing through the whole thing and the funny one-liners, that’s the calling card of every Guardians trailer. But the clearest connection is actually Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, looking almost identical to Benicio Del Toro’s Collector from Guardians. Apparently both characters are apart of the Elders of the Universe which is an extinct race that is known for obsessions and vices. So basically they’re the guys who go to Vegas and decide to stay there forever.
