‘Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers’ Trailer

14 03 2011

The sudden arrival of a ‘Thor & Loki’ trailer seems timely as we consider the upcoming live-action ‘Thor’ movie. Marvel have augmented the original work by Robert Rodi and Esad Ribic with a range of effects, animation techniques and an epic soundtrack. The mini-series focuses on Loki, as the ruler of Asgard. His brother Thor is bound in chains in a dungeon, Odin seems powerless to interfere, and his subjects are reluctantly forced to kneel before him. But ‘Loki the trickster’ is perhaps doomed to fail as he is beset by a host of problems and plagued by a nagging sensation of a future destiny that is pre-ordained. It’s a great comic book mini-series that defines the relationship between the two brothers and perhaps enables us to have some sympathy for the god of mischief.

“Marvel Knights Animation is proud to announce “Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers,” an all-new four-episode series debuting on iTunes, Xbox LIVE, and PlayStation Network on Monday, March 28. Further episodes debut weekly on Wednesdays beginning April 6, with each high-definition episode priced at $2.99 (standard definition is also available at $1.99/episode).

Inspired by the acclaimed graphic novel from Robert Rodi and Esad Ribic, “Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers” takes a powerful look inside the minds of Thor & Loki, brothers in the mythical land of Asgard and seemingly forever enemies. But just why does Loki hate his brother Thor? And could it be that this master of mischief isn’t really the villain he’s been branded? Loki’s insatiable lust for power and his feud with Thor take on new meaning in this resonant epic.”
