Thor 2 "Deceived" Trailer Similarities.

Hi guys,

Just saw Thor 2 and was reminded of the "Deceived" SWTOR trailer in one part in a scene which seems nearly identical in its own right; the Dark Elves pilot their ship into the main hall or throne room of Asgard, taking out columns and pillars which look ancient in the side, tearing through the room and skidding to a halt before the guards in the room who stand with their weapons ready, as a shot inside the ship reveals the enemy standing and poised for battle with swords and guns at the ready. The doors slide open and the Dark Elves pour out and engage in a battle in the Throne Room, which at the end of a later Malgus-like scarred Malekith the Accursed destroys the throne symbolically.

I'm not suggesting copying issues or what not, but it was very similar and reminiscent of the scene where the Sith pilot the Bounty Hunter's ship into the Jedi Temple and are revealed inside to battle in the main hall. Sorry if you think the post was unnecessary, just wanted to share.

Yep, had those same thoughts while watching the movie. I kinda extended it all the way to the someone important (Not saying who in Thor 2, but kinda equivalent to the jedi master Malgus killed) being stabbed by the bad guy who walked in. :P

Yeah, I think Blur studios did some copy-pasting there.

Uhh, Blur did it a few years before the first Thor, if I'm not mistaken...

Just saw Thor and thought the same thing, it was pretty blatant.

Not to a non-gamer.

My brother in law who played tor for a couple months at launch also remarked that the ship and the way it crashed through after the shield was down was exactly like the ship that crashed through in the Deceived trailer.

I edited a Thor/Vader trailer before.
