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.
Thor 2: The Dark World
Every Marvel movie, from 'Captain America' to 'The Avengers,' always has that epic showdown between the hero and villain, and 'Thor 2' is no different. The latest clip from the Asgardian's next solo adventure, hitting US theaters this Friday, previews the showdown between Thor and Malekith the Accursed.
'Thor 2' will take movie goers into the depths of 'The Dark World' and introduce us to a few not-so-famous comic book villains from the Marvel universe -- the Dark Elves, led by Malekith the Accursed and his right-hand man and lieutenant Algrim/Kurse. Before you see the Asgardian Avenger's next solo adventure, we spoke with Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays the latter character(s), to offer a primer to this new race of villains and his experience with tackling two roles at once.
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 and certainly most iconic weapons in all of superherodom is Thor's hammer, otherwise known as Mjölnir (pronounced mee-yol-near). In the comics, Mjölnir is forged by Dwarven blacksmiths and is composed of a fictional Asgardian metal called "uru." Since there are no dwarven blacksmiths in real life (spoiler alert), master swordsmith and renowned propmaster Tony Swatton will show you how to actually make the Mjölnir for 'Thor 2' (or to smash watermelons).
