The upcoming release of 'Iron Man 3' not only kicks off the 2013 summer movie season, it kicks off Marvel's "Phase Two," a slate of films that will build up to the 2015 release of 'The Avengers 2.' Phase Two consists of 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' AKA, all of those movies you're really going to want to see. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently spoke about the Phase Two films, spilling some details for thirsty geeks the world over.
Thor 2: The Dark World
'Thor: The Dark World' will soon be upon us, hitting theaters November 8, 2013, and so will Marvel's accompanying toy line. We got the chance to attend Hasbro's Fan Media Day during the 2013 American International Toy Fair, which showed off the new 'Thor 2' action figures and gadgets.
Previous toy releases, like most recently with the 'Iron Man 3' LEGO sets, have teased potential spoilers from their corresponding movies, so what hidden 'Thor: The Dark World' gems might be hidden in this new toy crop?
We knew that Marvel has longterm plans for their movie universe, but we didn't know they were this longterm. It turns out that they're not just thinking about 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and the second 'Avengers' movie -- they're already thinking about a third 'Avengers' movie...and the major role The Hulk will play in the coming films. The following news will be nothing new to comic fans, but casual viewers should know that this is pretty major SPOILER territory.
There are a lot of really cool actors and actresses joining the Marvel movie universe in 'Thor: The Dark World,' but of all of them, we're most excited to see Adewake Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Best known for playing the mysterious Mr. Eko on 'Lost' and the terrifying Adebisi on HBO's 'Oz,' the phenomenal actor will go toe-to-toe with Chris Hemsworth's Thor as the dark elf warror Algrim and his villainous alter-ego, Kurse. Although most details about the film are on lockdown, he's slipped a few details to the LA Times.
After select looks at 'Thor: The Dark World' from various set photos, the first official look at the upcoming 'Thor' sequel has finally surfaced in the latest issue of Empire Magazine. Though the 'Man of Steel'-covered edition includes a ton of new looks at some of the superhero movies on the docket for 2013, we still can't wait to see Chris Hemsworth pick his hammer back up for another battle.
'Thor 2,' dubbed 'The Dark World,' is by far one of the most anticipated movies of the coming year, and will star Chris Hemsworth returning as the hammer-wielding God of Thunder as he battles the dark elves. But while a trailer hasn't even hit yet, one of the film's stars is already looking ahead to what future Marvel movies have in store -- specifically for him.
It's been a while since we last learned or saw anything new from the God of Thunder's next adventure in 'Thor 2.' We've been hearing all about this "Dark World" he's supposed to go venturing off in after the evil Dark Elves, but aside from a crowded fight scene and some pics of the set, we've had to rely on our imaginations as to how Malekith and his followers look... until now! Get a load of the first Dark Elf pics.
We've been preoccupied with the 'Iron Man 3' trailer and movie pics these past few days, but now its time to set our sights on the God of Thunder. 'Thor 2,' dubbed 'The Dark World,' is currently shooting in Iceland, which we've already seen through tons of set pics and behind-the-scenes footage leaking out of the woodwork. But who's ready now for some 'Thor: The Dark World' spoilers?
You've got to hand it to Marvel: they sure do like keeping their secrets. What we know about the upcoming sequels to 'Captain America' and 'Thor' could fill a thimble (maybe two), so it always feels like we're grasping at straws when it comes to keeping you fine readers up to date regarding the latest superhero movie news. However, one of the biggest questions about the currently-filming 'Thor: The Dark World' looks like it has an answer. That question: will Tom Hiddleston's Loki be making an appearance?
