The first round of 'Thor 2' reviews have arrived online, following the world premiere of the Avenger from Asgard's latest adventure. The film itself doesn't officially open in theaters until November 8, but what are the critics already saying about it? Fans will be pleased to know that they're generally running positive.
Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) have had a tumultuous relationship. After attempting to destroy his brother and claim the throne of Asgard in 'Thor,' the trickster god unleashed an alien army on New York City in 'The Avengers' and was taken back home in chains for it. But in 'Thor 2,' our title hero will have to put all this aside to defeat a dark new threat.
Marvel recognizes Tom Hiddleston's Loki as a clear fan favorite of its superhero universe, with more and more of his followers petitioning (literally) for him to get his own solo movie. While the studio isn't done yet with Thor's trickster brother, we're left to wonder what future movies might have in store for him. Well, so does Hiddleston, and he may have already thrown out a story idea involving another comic book trickster, Enchantress.
For the most part, comic book movies have stuck to summer release dates of late, so it will be interesting to see how 'Thor: The Dark World' fares this November. But of all the superheroes, Thor seems the most autumnal (perhaps it's the thunder). But we've now got the film's first TV spot, as the film opens in a little over two months.
With the release date of 'Thor: The Dark World' only about two months away, two new posters have arrived to remind us why we're excited for the next stage of Marvel's Phase Two. With each poster focusing on Thor and Loki respectively, these look like the first of two in a series. We'll probably get character posters for the rest of the film's cast in the coming weeks as marketing heats up.
