Thor 2: The Dark World hits theaters this fall, but you can get lots of great Thor stuff from iTunes right now

The first teaser trailer for Thor 2: The Dark World has hit the internet and... I don't know what to make of it yet. I enjoyed Malekith, the accursed dark elf, as Walt Simonson rendered him in the Thor comics decades ago, but I don't get any real sense of his character here and how it plays into whatever greater story arc they have for Thor this time around. And his look in the film doesn't really wow me so far.

Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

There seems to be some reverse fish-out-of-water action going on, with Sarah Foster going to Asgard this time instead of Thor going to Earth/Midgard like in the previous film, but other than that... not much is shown.

Hopefully they're building up to Surtur and an adaption of Ragnarok 'n Roll for the third movie in the series, because that's probably the best Thor story ever written, and I'd love to see it brought to film. We'll have to wait until more trailers are released later this summer, and ultimately until Thor 2: The Dark World is released and we've seen it to know for sure, but in the mean time there's lots of great Marvel Thor media on iTunes to tide us over. Here are some of my favorites. (I'm re-watching Avengers for what must be the 12th time on my iPad mini right now.)

I like these articles. Nothing wrong with reporting on iTunes content. There are also some good Thor related motion comics in there,.
