This could be the end for Jane Foster. Exclusive footage from Thor: The Dark World shown at the D23 Expo revealed Thor’s lady love is infected with a mystical disease that leaves even the Asgardians baffled. In addition to replaying the trailers and first looks from San Diego Comic-Con last month, Marvel unveiled new clips from both the upcoming Thor sequel and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Neither scenes are available online yet so here is what you missed.
Jane Foster’s (Natalie Portman) fate remains uncertain as a team of Asgardian healers examined her. Knowing that Earth’s doctors would be unable to help her, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) brought Jane to his home world. But his father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins), does not like having the human in Asgard so he sends guards to remove her.
Jane’s infection is not going to go lightly though and it pulses out a wave of energy that knocks the guards back. What could the infection be? Thor and Odin are as clueless and we are.
As for The Winter Soldier, Cap (Chris Evans) is still an army of one. The new footage sees him engaging in a stealth assault on a naval ship. The Star Spangled Avenger takes down every goon his path with a serious of shield throws, brutal punches, and using a few weapons he picks up along the way. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and the rest of the assault team swoop in at the end, and Agent Romanov picks up their prior conversation about dating tips. If the whole movie is like this clip, fans are going to enjoy a lot of rapid-fire action and snappy dialogue.
Thor: The Dark World is in theater on November 8th and Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
