'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.
Thor 2: The Dark World
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?
Hugo Weaving was fantastic as villain Red Skull in 'Captain America,' and the end of the movie left his future in the Marvel movie-verse uncertain, leaving us excited about his possible return. And now that return is seeming less likely, as Weaving says he's not interested in reprising the role.
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.
