View Full Version : Thor: The Dark World

First poster:


Look, it's Mew-mew!

Apparently, the first trailer is coming out next week.

So else is excited to see Loki Thor again?

04-19-2013, 03:03 PM
Love me some Thor... and Loki ... ... and Odin. Psyched for the first teaser this Tuesday! Really curious to see what Alan Taylor brings to the table! :)

Oh, and I hope Sif gets more love this time around!

04-19-2013, 04:15 PM
So stoked to see Eccleston as the baddie!

04-19-2013, 06:58 PM
I just want to see Loki begging for forgiveness and say "anything but another beating from the Hulk".

04-21-2013, 09:54 PM
The first one is my third favorite so far behind the first Iron Man and Avengers, definitely pumped for this one.

04-21-2013, 10:51 PM
I was pleasantly surprised and thought Thor was waaaay better than it had any right to be, largely due to a great cast and Kenneth Branagh classing-up the joint (even though he dropped the ball completely in directing the then-recent Oscar-winning Natalie Portman, who hot on the heels of her win was basically given nothing to do and somehow seemed like she was sleepwalking through the entire movie).

And as impressive as the conversion job was, I really hope they start filming these movies in proper 3D instead...Asgard looked AMAZING so I'm definitely anxious to see them take it up a notch. I know they're not going that route this time but I hope they at least take the time and spend the money to convert it even better than the last because as good as it was it was still pretty damned murky and flat when the action was almost anywhere else but Asgard.

Not sure I've ever seen anything by the new guy in the director's chair, but the returning and new cast members pretty much give me all the faith I need to get my ass back in the theater seats all over again for the sequel. Branagh did a more-than-adequate-enough job the first time around but still stumbled enough here and there that I don't mind someone else taking a shot at the sequel instead.

Also, it absolutely blows my mind that I'm as excited about a Thor sequel as I am -- or even at all -- considering I seriously never even gave the slightest fuck about him in the comics. Goddamn, these movies are kicking ass!

Looks like my prayers may be answered in the form of a Thor-Jane-Sif love triangle (http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/176349-new-images-and-plot-details-from-thor-the-dark-world). I remember Branagh saying on the THOR commentary that Jaimie Alexander's part in the first movie was a little stripped down in favor of establishing some of the larger elements - happy to know Sif will have a more pivotal role this time around!

Two words: Loki's hair. (http://the-splice.tumblr.com/post/48648339474)

04-22-2013, 09:54 PM
Oh... he looks attractive with that hair. I'm totally gay for him.

It's like Tommy Wiseau suddenly got handsome... o_O

And please tell me Jane Foster dies in this please please please please please? I can't stand her.

edit: eh crap, I like all the posts of this thread. :D

04-22-2013, 10:20 PM
The first trailer debuts tomorrow!
marodi: Yep. (http://gingerhaze.tumblr.com/post/48661555291/i-love-that-asgardians-are-immortal-and-thor-and)

Things we learn from the trailer: the Bifrost has been repaired; Mjolnir is flying head first towards Thor but is turning to present its handle at the last second; at 1:24 something is falling to their knees and I don't know who that is; Thor has warned Loki he was going to kill him in case of betrayal. Loki's answer: "Bitch, please".

Overall, it looks so BADASS it hurts!

Also: 30 images from the trailer (http://collider.com/thor-2-images-tom-hiddleston) There's something for everyone in there.

But I really need to post this one (because of REASONS)

God bless Tom Hiddleston; only him can carry that look with such awesomeness.

orestes: not the ponytail, please! It would be as disastrous as Thor's helmet. There a reason why he's not wearing it in the MCU!

04-23-2013, 12:47 PM
Oh, shit I forgot about the ponytail!

04-23-2013, 02:24 PM
Loki... he looks so cool and so attractive. I'm definitely gay for Hiddleston. When is Only Lovers Left Alive going to come out? I want to see him as a vampire.

04-23-2013, 04:31 PM
No distribution date yet but I believe it's premiering at Cannes.

04-24-2013, 07:10 PM
Shit, you know I'm all about Lady Sif. Love this shot:


Also, if I ever change my ETS username, it might just have to be GayForHiddleston if thevoid99 hasn't already taken it.

04-24-2013, 10:53 PM
I would go for Sif as well. She's all kinds of fine and can kick some ass. Does anyone think a cat fight between her and Jane Foster is going to happen?

04-25-2013, 11:51 AM
If they cat fight, I think it will be of the verbal-parrying variety, which I have no problem with. If Jane and Sif ever got physically violent, I could see Sif doing some serious damage (her being a demigod warrior and such).

04-25-2013, 02:30 PM
Unless Jane gets access to one of Tony Starks' Iron Man suits and we have a battle.

07-20-2013, 10:06 PM
OMG! *dying*


07-21-2013, 12:24 AM
Wow, Loki is totally awesome. Ladies are going gaga for him.

Conan The Barbarian
07-21-2013, 12:08 PM
That was awesome but extremely annoying to watch.

Dude, it's Comic Con- how else did you expect people to react?

07-21-2013, 03:47 PM
Hiddleston is so awesome. You can tell how much he loves that character and how much respect he has for the fans. It looks like he's having as much fun as them. He's such a likable guy!

Also: has anyone else read the two Thor: the Dark World Prelude comic books? I have. They are telling what happened between Thor and The Avengers and they also show what happens when Thor arrives back on Asgard with Loki as a prisoner. Being published by Marvel (of course) they are canon and I suspect that while it is not necessary to have read them before TDW, they contain events that will have a major impact in the movie.

i found them to be barely impactful on me, and i felt like i wasted my $. remind me of the finer plot points again.

Possible spoilers for the movie?

There's been rumors for months now that a major character was going to die in TDW. My theory is that it's going to be Frigga. She's the only one whose death would deeply impact both Thor and Loki. As we see in the comics, it's her who found out that Loki is still alive, alerting the others of where he was. In the second book, she's the only one who welcomes Loki back in Asgard while Thor is blaming him for the deaths on Earth and while Odin makes it clear that Loki is no longer a son to him. Frigga is the only link Loki has with Asgard and her dying should sever all of his ties with his former family.

New trailer is coming during the week of August 4 and it's going to be the same one that was showed at Comic Con.

07-26-2013, 08:00 PM
The other day at work, me and a coworker were discussing the upcoming movie and speculating on how the movie might end and lead into a Loki movie. All I wanna know is when are we going to see The Enchantress and Jormungand?

07-27-2013, 01:35 AM
Dude, it's Comic Con- how else did you expect people to react?

Like adults? Reminds me of Trent throwing pianos around in the middle of Hurt. Loki needs a piano. Those people were annoying as fuck.

07-27-2013, 10:30 AM
Clearly you've never been to Comic Con. The point of Loki's secret introduction was to get fans excited for Thor footage.

Mission accomplished.

07-27-2013, 10:49 AM
I get the point. And yeah it was pretty cool. That doesn't change the fact that it was annoying that they went crazy every three words he spoke.

07-27-2013, 10:25 PM
Amora the Enchantress, not Hela.

07-28-2013, 06:37 PM
Oh yes, I knew who you meant. I had a bit of trouble posting the picture (had to retry a couple of times) and in the confusion, the words "And her" were lost in internetland.

I would love to see all three of them, Amora, Jormungandr and Hela, with a slight preference for Hela because she is so badass. Also: that helmet.

And Surtur. We need to see Surtur at some point.

Only 102 days until it opens. Not that I'm counting or anything.

08-01-2013, 12:56 PM
Not really feeling it.

08-01-2013, 02:48 PM
Not really feeling it.

Same here. Having Loki in the background is insulting. Loki should be in front because he's so good-looking.

08-01-2013, 03:57 PM
The photoshop job on Natalie Portman is beyond awful and are they trying to tell us something by having Thor holding Jane and turning his back to Sif?

Loki looks like a parody of every villain that ever was. I can almost hear the cackling.

Same here. Having Loki in the background is insulting. Loki should be in front because he's so good-looking.

I have to words for you: Loki movie.

08-01-2013, 08:21 PM
Why the fuck is Malekith in the background?

08-05-2013, 10:09 PM

08-07-2013, 12:11 AM
Bring on the trailer! I'm really excited for this one. Probably my favorite Avengers character. Also, Loki. <3

08-07-2013, 09:03 AM

Sorry for the double post, but it looks amazing!

08-07-2013, 09:09 AM
Looks much better than the first film.

08-07-2013, 10:30 AM
Loki has so much swag.

08-07-2013, 12:37 PM
Oh wow, that looks fantastic!

Badass Frigga I love, Thor is gorgeous and just arrogant enough, Jane I still can't stand and Loki... Loki, you adorable evil little shit.

We owe Kenneth Branagh so much dirty sex for having cast Hiddleston as Loki in the first movie.

Still not counting but 93 more days to wait.

08-07-2013, 03:14 PM
Jane slaps Loki... and he likes it. Loki is just hella-sexy. Jane should dump Thor and go with Loki. Then Darcy can join in the fun with Sif and Black Widow and we'd have a party!!! The film does look better than the first.

08-07-2013, 04:35 PM
Wow that looks really good. I think it will be much better than the first.

08-07-2013, 10:52 PM
Please, somebody make a gif of Jane slapping Loki!!! It's a total turn-on.

08-07-2013, 11:28 PM
You underestimate tumblr.


08-08-2013, 12:31 AM
Even getting slapped by PO'TMAN MOTHAFUCKA!!!! Loki is still extremely good-looking.

08-08-2013, 12:48 AM
There is something very badass about this one:


08-08-2013, 07:15 AM
Alright, guys, let's try to keep the fapping under control.

08-11-2013, 02:27 AM
seriously, thank you. very annoying and Tiger Beat-esque.

08-11-2013, 02:42 PM
Looked like a punch to me :D This looks pretty dam good. It's funny that when I watched the first Thor, all I wanted to see was more Loki :)

10-04-2013, 08:58 PM
Almost a month away so the hype machine is starting to ramp up.



10-05-2013, 03:33 PM
I am actually beyond psyched for this film, I loved the first one, definitely my favourite of all the Avengers. I've been avoiding the trailers, don't want any spoilers.. I really hope its not a let down.

10-17-2013, 07:07 PM
A couple of BTS videos.



10-23-2013, 01:05 PM
15 days to go and a cool little scene to put everyone in the mood (introducing Loki, the God of Sarcasim)


11-04-2013, 06:45 PM
Arguing with kids, Loki, really?


11-07-2013, 06:30 PM
Anyone else catching an early screening tonight?

I'll be going to an 8 PM showing tonight. Will report back with a review of sorts when I get home (with spoiler tags, of course).

11-07-2013, 07:15 PM
Anyone else catching an early screening tonight?

I've seen it already (I can't explain more than to say that I have contacts at a movie theater).

My advice: bring tissues. Also: there's a high risk of contracting a strange illness called hiddlestonitis. Don't say I didn't warn you.

11-07-2013, 09:51 PM
Do you need to have seen the first one for this one to make sense? This looks good but I haven't seen the first one.

11-07-2013, 11:09 PM
Son of a bitch.

11-07-2013, 11:12 PM
Do you need to have seen the first one for this one to make sense? This looks good but I haven't seen the first one.

As long as you know what Loki did in the Avengers, that's all the setup you need.

On that note, my God, what a phenomenal movie. Fucking destroyed the first one.

Loki's "death" was unexpected and played off very well, and that ending scene with him on the throne - fuck, man. And the post-credits scene! The Collector was a great way to reveal that the Tesseract is just an Infinity Gem, and it really conveys how much Marvel is building up Thanos as the Big Bad. Avengers 3 is going to be a fucking monster.

Tons of action right from the start. The scenes on Earth at the beginning were kind of slow, but other than that the pace was great. And man, as minor as Frigga was in the first film, she was a boss right up until the end in this one. Alan Taylor did a great job of making me upset about her death.

This movie rocketed straight up into my top five. I'd place it just below Iron Man 3, which is below Iron Man and Avengers.

11-07-2013, 11:48 PM
Question: What was it Frigga said to Loki before she disappeared?

And yeah, ditto to everything you said in black @Final Destiny (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=228). As he lay dying, I was silently crying and yet I kept saying, "Nope" to myself because if there's one thing comic book Loki has trained me is to not take anything he says or does at face value. Still, I think that's part of the reason why I love this character, and my god, Hiddleston is just perfect as a young Loki. When they revealed Loki on the throne, I shouted "son of a bitch!" out loud in the theater, shaking the arm rests in frustration. So if Loki is secretly ruling Asgard, then where the fuck is Odin?

Oh, and can I say just how gorgeous Malekith looked during the prologue, what with his high features and pale eyes.

Also, CAPTAIN!!!!!!!!

Definitely will be seeing again; hopefully I'll pick up greater details the second time around. Did anyone pay attention to the other realms? The only one I recognized was Muspelheim.

11-08-2013, 12:02 AM
Eccleston did a damn good job as Malekith. He was consistently awesome and terrifying.

And oh man, I forgot to mention: CHRIS FUCKING EVANS. The theater literally exploded when he showed up. He does a great impression of Loki doing an impression of Cap, too. Cap 2 is going to be so good.

11-08-2013, 12:04 AM
Was Malekith and his Dark Elves speaking Norwegian? Would be cool if they were.

11-08-2013, 12:06 AM
Was Malekith and his Dark Elves speaking Norwegian? Would be cool if they were.

I'm not familiar with Norwegian, but it sounded more like a made-up language to me.

Also, I have no idea what Frigga said to Loki. And on that note, Loki being completely torn up about Frigga's death made me super upset. Even monsters still have feelings sometimes.

11-08-2013, 01:00 AM
Was Malekith and his Dark Elves speaking Norwegian? Would be cool if they were.

I remember reading in one of the numerous set visits that it was developed for the movie.

It's discussed a bit here in the conversation with Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje regarding his accent: http://www.superherohype.com/features/articles/179461-from-the-set-of-thor-the-dark-world?start=3

11-08-2013, 01:05 AM
Saw it w/ the ol' EmOhEm tonight. We snagged some of the Thor Marathon posters since we went to IMAX screening. The story was a lot more cohesive than the first Thor so there was that. And the Cap America/Chris Evans bit was very worth it. Loki you are an asshole..

11-08-2013, 11:32 AM
TRICKSTER God, everyone. Although Loki would probably write Trickster GOD.

I don't think for a second that Odin is dead. I think either Loki pushed him into the Odinsleep or he has him in a cell deep deep deep in the dungeons. Remember: Loki wants to prove to Odin that he's the right one for the throne. Another thing: in Thor, Loki was rightfully named as king of Asgard by Frigga (it was a deleted scene but it still counts). Thor himself has never been crowned and Loki, to the best of our knowledge, has never been removed as king since his reign was just temporary, until Odin woke up again, which he did, of course.

The question is why did Loki want the throne back so badly? Is it only to prove himself in the eyes of Odin (although I suspect Odin won't be pleased with how everything went down) or does it have something to do with Thanos coming? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

One of my favorite part was Selvig's reaction when he heard that Loki was dead. That was awesome. And also: "Darcy? Jane? Eric? Ian? Mew-Mew?"

I bet Chris Evans must have had a blast at imitating Loki since Tom Hiddleston can't stop imitating him.

11-08-2013, 11:34 AM
Was Malekith and his Dark Elves speaking Norwegian? Would be cool if they were.

From an interview with Eccleston:

"And it’s based on Finnish. It’s based on two or three languages, but I heard that the predominant one was Finnish, so I spent a lot of time on YouTube listening to people speak Finnish, trying to steal some of the music and the rhythms that they use."


11-08-2013, 12:59 PM
Just like Tolkien!

11-08-2013, 02:07 PM
This was definitely not what I was expecting, with such a title as "THE DARK WORLD :O," but it really did blow me away. Great development of Loki.

I couldn't stop thinking of Star Wars TIE fighters when I saw/heard the dark elves' ships. Anyone else find it humorous that at the beginning, the story started "many, many years ago" with an ancient battle where elves were fighting with laser blasters? PEW-PEW-PEW

11-09-2013, 02:07 PM
Man, I enjoyed the hell out of this. For some reason it really exceeded my expectations and I love the first movie.

IMAX 3D was a blast - worth doing just for the sound. The IMAX canvas lent itself really well to the Thor universe. I missed the first 5 or 10 minutes of the movie (bummer but at least I have an excuse to see it again), so I didn't get to see if there was that Cap preview that's apparently in front of some screenings. Anyone catch it?

I could watch Thor, Loki, and Odin feud all day. The family stuff is what makes Thor my favorite Avenger. There was some killer action in this, but you can't beat the sibling drama. I have to admit that the humor was well-placed in this, too. There was a pretty quick jump from morbid to light around the middle, but overall it worked - the stuff with Selvig and Thor especially.

Even if Sif had her own movie, I still don't think I'd be satisfied, so of course I wanted more of her (I at least wish we got to see her duke it out w/ some of those guards). Still, I loved what little of her there was. Jaimie Alexander does a lot with a little, she's great. Malekith was pretty cool, though he had the unfortunate position of being in the same movie as Loki which made him uninteresting by comparison. Dammit if he didn't look amazing in the 3rd act though - amazing costume design and make-up.

Lastly, in the credits it said non-specifically "Thor Will Return", as opposed to "Thor Will Return in Avengers: Age of Ultron" - any bets on a Guardians of the Galaxy cameo?

Random thoughts after seeing it in IMAX 3D:

*I like how the movie opens and ends with a shot of Loki
*Jane super excited to travel through galaxies because SCIENCE
*God I love Darcy
*Seriously, fuck all the Darcy haters
*I like how fallen Asgardians become stars
*"Trust my rage."
*Am I going to go soft every time I watch Loki die? *sigh* Fine.
*Thor hanging Mjölnir on Jane's coat rack
*When the camera pans across Svartalfheim, there's a quick flash of green light before the camera stops on a random Asgardian soldier (the one who tells Odin of the body they found in the next scene). I didn't notice this flash the first time and if I had, then the ending wouldn't have been as effective, imo.
*The mid-credit scene that ties in to GOTG: So Volstagg and Sif hand over the Aether to the Collector because Asgard is already housing one piece of the Infinity Stones, the Tessaract. We can assume they are following Loki's orders, under the guise of Odin, then why would he hand over a vital piece of the Infinity Stones to Thanos?

11-14-2013, 08:49 PM
We've been trolled folks! Although in that case, I think it's fair to say that we've been Loki'd.

Back in October, Empire Magazine had a collector issue about TDW and one of the special covers was this one:


What is it? Why, it's just Loki sitting on Odin's throne. And what is this thing next to him on the left hand lower corner? Why, it's a breastplate of some sort; the kind of thing that would be very useful should someone be stabbed through the chest...

Anyway, listen to the podcast: http://www.empireonline.com/features/thor-the-dark-world-secrets-empire-spoiler-podcast-tom-hiddleston if just to hear Hiddleston's voice right in your ears.

Oh and where did Odin go? Well duh, to Tahiti (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/movienewsandreviews/news/?a=90066) of course. It's a magical place after all. But if you're still watching Agents of Shield, which I am, you know that the Son of Coul is starting to think that maybe Tahiti wasn't so magical after all.

It's easy for me to imagine Volstagg and Sif (and Thor) doing this on their own. After all, they helped organize a secret mission to break Loki free, right? Seems reasonable to assume that they might be on a secret mission to hand over the Aether - especially since Odin seemed fairly warmonger-y earlier in the film.

Loki'd 2: The Return of Steve
(the vids have been posted out of order.... if you haven't seen the first Loki'd, start with the lower vid..... unless they MTV switches it around)


11-20-2013, 05:49 PM
Went to this the other night and I'm pretty sure i slept through the epic battle scene. Horray expensive nap time. I think I'm gonna have to go see it again though as i really liked the rest of it and am pretty sure i missed a fair bit of stuff. I too echo the Loki sentiments dude plays it so well.

11-23-2013, 01:33 AM
Just saw it last night. The Cap'n America prologue was great. Theme, action, comedy and acting were all pretty on point for me. The CG Asgaurd looks better then its 2011 counter part. I also liked how this movie really moved the Major MCU storyline along(unlike Iron Man 3), as well as being a good stand alone flick. I was hoping for more major character deaths, but I guess they're saving those for later.

Can anybody fill me in on the Second Post credit scene? I only got the first one with The Collector and the Infinity Stone.

Ask for a source, someone!

edit: and now I can't stop listening to it. Someone download that shit before it disappears so I can put it on repeat indefinitely! :P
