On top of the awesome commercial for Captain America: The First Avenger which features the first footage from the movie, Paramount/Marvel aired a spot for Thor during the Super Bowl which features a bit more footage than what we’ve all seen in the trailer. If you wanted to see more of Thor’s romantic interest, Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman, you’ll be happy. In addition, you can get a tiny glimpse of Kat Dennings. Otherwise it’s a lot of stuff you’ve already seen.
Here’s the official synopsis for Thor:
Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, “Thor,” which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
Ah, the Super Bowl. An event like no other. It’s uniqueness lies in the fact that you don’t really even have to care about the teams that are playing because there’s so much more to savor. Whether it be those silly Budweiser ads, the whacked-out, over the top halftime shows that typically star musical icons many presumed dead; or, most importantly, the movie trailers.
