See even more Asgard action in extended Thor: The Dark World trailer

An extended trailer for Thor: The Dark World has been released, showing off a lot more Asgard action. Want to see?

The latest footage is sprinkled in with scenes from previous trailers, but we can glean a bit more of how director Alan Taylor is adapting the fantastical world for the big screen. As it has in previous trailers, the footage looks spectacular — and we can’t wait to see Thor duke it out with Malekith.

Check out the new trailer above and let us know what you think.

Before taking over Thor, Taylor worked heavily on Game of Thrones, and he explained to SFX that he brought some of those sensibilities to the project to replace the CGI-styled look from the first film. You can definitely feel that vibe in the new footage:

“I love doing period stuff, and I was immersed in Game Of Thrones. I was lucky that Marvel seemed to have an appetite for that this time. They’d consciously steered away from that kind of thing in the first one. Because they wanted to make sure they were distinguishing themselves from Lord Of The Rings. They didn’t want to be mistaken for that. But by the time I came along it seemed like they were ready to embrace a slightly more historical attitude towards it.”

Thor: The Dark World opens Nov. 8, 2013.
