Two New Thor TV Spots Tie the Film into the Marvel Universe

Without a doubt, comic book fans young and old are loving what Marvel Studios is doing with their movies, creating one universe where Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and the Hulk exists within the same world. Previous spots for “Thor” have concentrated on the character, but these two latest spots seek to tie the character into Marvel’s movie universe. Via TheMovieBox.

Thor spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is the mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (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.
