Will The Lights Go Out In Thor: The Dark World?
Oh man, have you seen the teaser trailer for “Thor: The Dark World” yet? Once you see it, you’ll understand why I can’t wait for November, when Chris Hemsworth once again, picks up Thor’s hammer, to protect the world from evil.
For the Marvel comic fans, the plot is based on the classic Super Hero Thor, from Marvel’s comic book “Journey Into Mystery” #83, released in August, 1962. I’m not really into comics, so that means nothing to me, but the trailer has me excited! I think I might have even gotten a few goosebumps listening to Anthony Hopkins set the stage for Thor’s approaching battle with the Malekith (Christopher Eccleston).
As Hopkins tells us, “before the universe there was darkness,” now it’s returned and Thor, the Mighty Avenger, must fight to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a powerful enemy that existed even before the universe. An enemy so mighty, that even Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and Asgard cannot withstand, so he’ll seek help from his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston). This film has good vs. evil with the fate of the world depending on bad boy Loki, and superhero Thor working together? Sounds good to me.
Wait, am I the only one wondering what’s going on with Loki’s hair? Is he trying to look like Slash or Alice Cooper?
As you see from the trailer Thor returns for Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and brings her to Asgard with him, but the question is asked “what is he willing to sacrifice?” Hmmm, I’m thinking their relationship is headed for some drama. Other stars include: Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, and Rene Russo.
Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne and screenplay by Christopher L. Yost, Christopher Markus, and Stephen McFeely. “Thor: The Dark World” lands in theaters everywhere on November 8, 2013 distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
