The movie may be called 'Thor: The Dark World,' and fans are certainly buying tickets to see Thor and Loki get into some serious Asgardian action, but it's the women of the film who are really kicking ass. The clever Jane Foster, the warrior Sif, Thor's mom, and even comedic relief Darcy are dialed into the action much more this time around, giving them equal stature among their male counterparts and proving once again that when it comes to female heroes, Marvel does it right.
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.
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.
Ever since the announcement of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' franchise fans have been wondering how the 'Avengers'-adjacent series would tie in to Marvel's upcoming cinematic ventures like 'Thor: The Dark World' and 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' and it seems we may finally have our answer. November episode "The Well" will directly tie into the events of the 'Thor' sequel, with an episode helmed by 'Star Trek''s Jonathan Frakes!
'Thor 2' is ready to traverse 'The Dark World' this November 8, but even though we're just a little more than a week away, Marvel hasn't skimped on the latest looks.

Post-'Thor 2,' Chris Hemsworth's Marvel contract has him in place to tackle 'The Avengers 2,' 'The Avengers 3' and, should Marvel sign off on it, 'Thor 3.' So, after he faces the Dark Elves of 'The Dark World' and Ultron himself, what new threat could menace him and his Asgardian brethren in a potential third standalone installment? The actor has some ideas for where the story should go, and it could be one to end it all.
What would 'Thor: The Dark World' be without some playful back-and-forth between Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston? In case you forgot the brotherly love these two share on screen, Marvel has released the latest 'Thor 2' clip to show off one of the more comedic moments between the two.
