Thor 2 trailer out

The teaser trailer for Thor 2: The Dark World has been released. It looks fun, though it's hard to tell much about it yet. I remember when the first one came out I had zero interest in seeing it, as I had not really seen just how pretty Chris Hemsworth was in it, and I thought the character of Marvel's Thor was irredeemably stupid. (I kind of still think that, at least when it comes to the comics version, and I have and will continue to maintain that with the exception of Iron Man, all the major Marvel heroes are written substantially different in the films than they are in the source material.) But the film ended up being a lot better than I thought it was going to be, and introduced me to the charming Messieurs Hemsworth and Hiddleston.

One thing thought I had about this, though. I may be reading too much into this, but something struck me about their hair in the end of the trailer. Their hair has changed with every movie, but the character of this change is interesting to me.

It strikes me as oddly... delicate, somehow, perhaps even to the point of femininity. Thanks to my following of aurora_knight's Tumblr, I have had more than a little occasion to see how certain slash fan tends to depict these two in fanart. Delicacy and femininity is the usual spin these artists tend to put on their work. Could this possibly be an example of playing to the tastes/aesthetics of this segment of the fans? Would they be aware enough of that, or have any interest in addressing it or appealing to it? Or am I totally reading too deep into this?

I felt like there was an interesting combination and dichotomy between their appearance and the harshness. I definitely see the feminity you see, but I think it has a really interesting contrast with that and Thor's "I will kill you when you betray me" in such a cold deadpan.

(Also, when, not if? Was I the only one who heard that?)

The Loki of Norse mythology takes on female form, gets pregnant, and has kids (who go on to destroy the world), soo...
