We know that 'Thor: The Dark World' has been filming, and is scheduled to hit theaters in a year (November 8, 2013 to be exact), but now Marvel has released their synopsis, which gives us a greater sense of what the film is, and how much (or little) 'The Avengers' plays into the sequel.
Big news -- potentially -- for those of us looking forward to seeing the Marvel universe continue its expansion. A new rumor suggests that, in 'Thor 2,' dubbed 'The Dark World,' we'll be exposed to worlds beyond Earth and Asgard. We're talking all nine realms here, people.
This is what happens any time you play a superhero in a major comic book franchise: No matter the movie that you are trying to promote, you’ll have to answer a handful of questions about the superhero blockbuster that you eventually are going to film (even though cameras don’t roll for months, at the earliest).
Take Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in Marvel’s string of popcorn thrillers. He’s trying to talk to the media about ‘The Iceman,’ a serial-killer-hitman drama that he and Michael Shannon brought to the Toronto International Film Festival. But instead, he has to spend time talking to outlets about his Marvel future. And Evans talks. To his credit, he knows where his bread is being buttered these days. Movies like ‘The Avengers’ and the upcoming 'Captain America 2' allow him to do as many ‘Iceman’ movies as he’ll want for the foreseeable future.
A few days ago, we caught a handful of behind-the-scenes pictures from the Surrey, England set of 'Thor: The Dark World.' Depicting a hectic battle sequence, the images resembled something closer to 'Game of Thrones' than a superhero movie -- and we mean that in the best possible way. (Perhaps it's thanks to director Alan Taylor having helmed six episodes of 'Thrones'?) If those pictures did it for you, then you'll certainly be pleased to see some moving pictures from the set, courtesy of this all-too-brief video captured by Splash News. Check it out after the break.
Consider this rumor, albeit a very exciting rumor for superhero movie fans. A handful of sources have suggested that Dr. Strange, the Marvel Universe's magic wielding "Sorcerer Supreme," will be introduced in the about-to-shoot 'Thor: The Dark World' and could be played by the one and only Viggo Mortensen.
Filming on 'Thor 2' (subtitled 'The Dark World') doesn't start for another week or so, and aside from casting news, details have been a little scarce. But we'll take what we can get, which is why we're super excited to show you some new photos of the 'Thor: The Dark World' set.
'Lost' star and epic name-haver Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has joined the cast of 'Thor: The Dark World' as the film's big baddie. We wonder if he's kept Mr. Eko's stick lying around for just such an occasion.
The beautiful and hilarious Kat Dennings will indeed return for 'Thor 2,' because we know you were all incredibly worried about whether or not she'd come back to adorably refer to Thor's hammer as "meow-meow."
