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.
Thor 2: The Dark World
'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."
Once Mads Mikkelsen passed on 'Thor: The Dark World,' we've been wondering who will fill his shoes, on top of wondering what character he'd be playing. The answer has been revealed: it's now Christopher Eccleston who will be playing Malekith The Accursed.
Though we'll have more coverage of the event as it unfolds, Marvel has been dropping nuggets like crazy at Comic-Con 2012 about 'Thor 2,' 'Captain America 2,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'Ant-Man.' Check out what we know, and check out the new art for these titles.
In Hollywood there is a disease that's infected many people in the industry. And that disease is called "Scheduling Conflict." In some cases it's real, in others it's a cover story for that person not working out as hoped. Alas, Mads Mikkelsen contracted "Scheduling Conflict" and will not be in 'Thor 2.'
Hey, guess what? 'Avengers 2' is happening. So are 'Thor 2' and 'Captain America 2.' These sequels should be no shock to you considering they have made over $500 gazillion at the box office (that's a rough estimate). But at a Disney presentation at the Cine 2012 conference in Italy, Disney head John Lasseter showed off the official logos for these Marvel sequels in the Disney timeline.
Now that 'Chuck' is over, it makes star Zachary Levi a free agent (as it were), and it looks like Marvel has their eyes on him to co-star in 'Thor 2.' Josh Dallas had to leave the film because of a television commitment, and Levi is their go-to to replace him.
It's easy to see a release date move as just card shuffling, but a movie's success or failure is often linked to when it comes out. Would 'Battleship' and 'Dark Shadows' tanked as hard as they did if they weren't caught in the wake of 'The Avengers?' We now have new release dates for 'The Lone Ranger,' 'Thor 2' 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' and more.
Marvel Producer Kevin Feige has been talking up 'The Avengers' success, and as such he's been led to also talk about some of Marvel's upcoming projects. With Mads Mikklesen signed on for 'Thor 2,' and the actor often playing heavies, the question was: Will he play Thanos, as hinted at by the end of 'The Avengers?'
