By By SANDY COHEN

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Thor's evil brother, Loki, took over the Marvel Studios presentation at Comic-Con on Saturday.

Lights flashed inside the San Diego Convention Center's largest exhibition hall, and Tom Hiddleston, dressed as Loki, commanded the stage. He called Hall H "a meager palace of Midgard" before showing footage from "Thor: The Dark World."

It opened with an epic battle scene, in which Thor takes down a massive monster, reducing him to a pile of rubble with one swing of his hammer.

The cast of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" shared footage from that film. It also opened with a dynamic fight scene: Captain America battling a dozen assailants in a glass elevator.

Other highlights included the introduction of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" cast and a peek at "Avengers: Age of Ultron."
