The movie may be called 'Thor: The Dark World,' and fans are certainly buying tickets to see Thor and Loki get into some serious Asgardian action, but it's the women of the film who are really kicking ass. The clever Jane Foster, the warrior Sif, Thor's mom, and even comedic relief Darcy are dialed into the action much more this time around, giving them equal stature among their male counterparts and proving once again that when it comes to female heroes, Marvel does it right.
In 'Thor: The Dark World,' Chris Hemsworth stars as the titular hero, on a mission to save the Nine Realms -- and his lady, Jane Foster, of course -- from total destruction at the hands of an evil Dark Elf. The latest Marvel film thunders into theaters this weekend and features an amazing cast, including Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, and more. Join us as we take a look back at the cast of the film way back before they were famous.
If there's one scene people could not stop repeating after watching all those various 'Thor 2' trailers, it was Chris Hemsworth smashing a giant rock creature to itty-bitty pieces and asking, "Anyone else?" Before you see the sequel in theaters this weekend, take an extended look at that scene.
One of the best parts of the 'Thor' movies is Jaimie Alexander's Sif, one of Thor's female fighting companions who's just as badass as her male counterparts. And while we wait for Marvel to pull the trigger on a female-centric superhero movie, Alexander herself has hinted that she's been talking to Warner Bros. about joining up with their superhero team as well. Could Alexander be Wonder Woman, perhaps?
