Thor: The Dark World PosterThor: The Dark World
Director: Alan Taylor
Screenwriters: Christopher Yost, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston
Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 112 Minutes
Release Date: November 8, 2013

Directed by Alan Taylor (HBO’s Game of Thrones), Thor: The Dark World is the eighth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a follow-up to both 2011’s Thor and 2012’s The Avengers.

Chris Hemsworth (Chiseled Man-Candy) returns as Thor, the hammer-wielding god of thunder and protector of the nine realms. With his brother, the mischievous Loki (Tom Hiddleston), in Asgardian time-out for the destruction of New York, Thor is busy bringing peace to the warring factions of the universe.

Alongside the Warriors Three (Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, and Tadanobu Asano) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander), Thor battles rock giants and monstrous marauders while his long-distance love interest, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), waits for him to return to Earth.

Speaking of Foster, the astrophysicist is busy investigating a gravitational anomaly in London. While there, she stumbles upon the Aether – an ancient artifact buried on Earth eons ago by Bor, father of Odin. Turns out the Aether is a powerful weapon that was once wielded by the evil Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) and his Dark Elves, who sought to engulf the universe in darkness.

Thor Stars Natalie Portman  Chris Hemsworth on The Graham Norton Show

Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth, who star together in the upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World, made an appearance recently on BBC TV’s The Graham Norton Show, where Portman talked about the huge different in height between her and her co-star. The actors then stood up to show the audience that Hemsworth, who plays the mighty Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is about a foot and a half taller than Portman (wearing 4-inch heels!), who plays Thor’s human love interest Jane.

This seemed like a great time for host Graham Norton to bust out the Thor and Jane action figures to show the difference in their heights, as well, to great humorous effect.

Check out the video of this here below.

James Gunn Directed A Mid-Credits Scene For ‘Thor: The Dark World’

Thor: The Dark World Header

My, how the time just flies. I had forgotten that the release for the latest Marvel Studios blockbuster Thor: The Dark World was getting close. Not because I wasn’t looking forward to it – I am a committed Marvel movie fanboy – but because lately I’ve been terribly busy at home. In a little over two weeks the second solo screen adventure of Chris Hemsworth‘s mighty thunder god with the impeccable blonde mane will hit theaters from Barcelona to Bakersfield.

One of the big question marks surrounding the release is what we can expect from the inevitable post-credits teaser scene. Iron Man 3 cleverly subverted such expectations by ending on a jokey note, but Dark World‘s final mystery scene looks to give audiences who weren’t in attendance at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con at Marvel’s next big movie gamble – August 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

And Dark World director Alan Taylor ain’t too happy about that.

Joss Whedon Saved ‘Thor: The Dark World’ By Rewriting Scenes

Joss Whedon Rewrote Portions Of Thor: The Dark World

As director and creative consultant for Marvel Studios, Joss Whedon has a lot of pull. He oversees the operations of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and as such will be the go-to person when a director needs help with the vision of a film.

When Alan Taylor called for a couple of reshoots for Thor: The Dark World, some worried that there was trouble on the set. But it wasn’t that at all, in fact it was Taylor having some minor trouble with grasping the vision of the script. So the filmmaker called none other than Whedon to help with that vision.

Fan Starts Petition For Stand Alone Loki Movie; Nearing 20,000 Signatures

Loki Petition Banner

People love Loki. This is not something many villains can say, but Loki, who appears in Thor, The Avengers, and upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World, is not your average villain. This is largely thanks to actor Tom Hiddleston, who portrays the Asgardian god in all three movies.

Hiddleston is so popular as Loki, in fact, that a petition has been created to try and get Marvel to make a stand alone Loki movie. Petitions are made all the time, of course, and rarely given a second look. But so far this particular petition has rapidly obtained support from all around the globe, quickly rising to almost 19,000 signatures as of the writing of this post, and has been covered by numerous news outlets.

What’s Up With Natalie Portman In The New ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Poster?

Thor: The Dark World

Marvel Studios has released a new character poster for Thor: The Dark World featuring Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and his human love interest Jane, played by Natalie Portman. One look at this poster will have you wondering what the hell is going on with Natalie Portman and why would this image even be approved for release?

I can’t even imagine why they apparently photoshopped Portman’s head on a barbie doll or why her facial expression is so terrible. And my only guess as to why it was released like this would be that it will get people talking, and it sure has. I expect this one to be on every Photoshop Disasters site out there. I likely would not even have bothered to post to about it had I not been so mesmerized by its hideousness. So, job well done, Marvel.

Check out the full poster here below.

D23 Expo 2013: Marvels Thor: The Dark World banner

Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, and Tom Hiddleston appeared with Marvel’s Kevin Feige to discuss Thor: The Dark World at today’s D23 Expo live-action studio presentation in Anaheim, CA.

While only some new footage, which showcased Portman’s Jane, was shown beyond the recently-released trailer, the sequel shows signs of epicness.

The first scene shared found a rumbling in a woods-set environment, full of explosions and then massive sword-fighting. Thor made a most timely and mighty entrance, using his hammer to destroy the scene. Parts of this have already been shown in the trailer, but this expanded on the already-revealed footage. Then Feige shared the aforementioned trailer.

Watch Now: The Second Trailer For Marvel’s ‘Thor: The Dark World’

Thor: The Dark World Header

Amid all the reported behind the scenes problems and reshoots, Thor: The Dark World looks mildly impressive, expanding the Marvel Cinematic World by exploring new realms. A second trailer has been released for the sequel, which you can watch here below.

Like every Marvel hero, there is some force that puts the world or their love interest in some sort of danger, and only he has the power to stop it. There are epic worlds, amazing set pieces, and let’s not for get the action sequences. All those epic battles and threats of multi-realm destruction, and still we do not know what Maliketh (Christopher Eccleston) has planned for Thor in this new movie. We briefly see him make a threat to someone very close to Thor in the first trailer, but other than that, we don’t quite know what his motivation is. Which is fine. I think it worked wonderfully for Iron Man 3.

SDCC 2013: Loki Takes Over The ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Panel

SDCC 2013: Thor: The Dark World panel banner

Marvel Studios knows what they’re doing when it comes to San Diego Comic-Con panels and it was no different today when Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige showed off a ton of footage from Thor: The Dark World, the much anticipated next film in the Marvel film universe.

Tom Hiddleston was the first to come out in full Loki regalia, and had the crowd in the palm of his hand from the word go. He taunted the crowd for waiting in line for Hall H, and said so in true Shakespearian style. You could tell that Hiddleston was loving every minute (having to hold back laughter) and promised that he would present the Avengers if the crowd would acknowledge him as leader by saying his name, which the fans were more that happy to do, now becoming enlisted in Loki’s Army. Loki’s new minions were rewarded for loyalty by being shown a brand new trailer for Thor: The Dark World.
