Production Roundup: "Thor" Has New Trailer, Black Confirmed for "Iron Man"

So, Thor has a new trailer, and the more I see, the more I like. I guess the vibe out there on the Webs is not a s strong for Thor as it is for Captain America. Or maybe I've got it backwards. Who fucking knows. It changes every other day, and people on forums are borderline insane.

But this trailer really kicks ass, as far as I'm concerned. It's a little odd that a taser knocks Thor out. Hopefully they explain that tiny detail. But other than that, the Destroyer looks great, the Asgard stuff looks great, the Frost Giant stuff looks great. The Earth stuff looks a little goofy, but it feels okay to me. Check it out:

And it looks like Shane Black is confirmed as the director of Iron Man 3, which is good news. Hopefully, this means everyone will now go check out Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, for the first time Downey and Black teamed up.

So very, very awesome.

Wow. That is friggin' awesome!
I was doubtful after the first trailer. But this second one totally restores the faith.

Still think the Asgardian armour, particulary the gold stuff, looks like the plastic armour I had as a 5 year old. But I'll just pretend it's some advanced Asgardian polymer composite and be happy.

I'm assuming Thor is taken out by the taser because he has not yet touched the hammer and gained the power of Thor on Earth.

Also notice (a first?) look of the Warriors Three during the Destroyer armour scene @ 1:44. Looking good.
