THOR Flies A Damn Spaceship In New THOR: THE DARK WORLD Clip

Thor The Dark World Banner

Don’t worry Han, you’re title as the galaxy’s quickest pilot is all but secure, as Thor Odinson doesn’t seem to be particularly gifted when it comes to the whole “maneuvering a giant flying saucer” gag. In this latest THOR: THE DARK WORLD clip, our favorite Asgardian blondie commands a Dark Elf vessel, presumably after he’s rescued Loki from Odin’s super secure prison.

Check it out below…

Is it me, or do those Asgardian spaceships bear a striking resemblance to one of George Lucas’s famed creations, the Jedi starfighters? I was unable to snag a high quality screenshot of those Norse contraptions, so you’ll have to make do with these less-than-stellar grabs below. I know the Thor designs are meant to resemble flying Viking ships, with winged sails on either side, nevertheless, they’re incredibly similar to those starfighters from a galaxy far, far away, and I can’t help but wonder if Disney’s recent acquisition of LucasFilms is the reason?
