Thor: The Dark World

  1. Unused Concept Art Shows Thor 2 Almost Introduced Valkyrie

    Concept Artist Josh Nizzi shared a number of unused art he produced for Thor: The Dark World, and among them are three progress shots of Valkyrie, or at the very least, a Valkyrie. While Vaklyrie is a superhero with a long history in the Marvel universe, and many incarnations within mortal women, she first appeared as about as literal a straw feminist as you can get: an pawn of the Enchantress created to divide the Avengers along gender lines by encouraging the Wasp, Medusa, Black Widow, and Scarlet Witch to embrace women's lib. In retrospect, I assumed the issue would be kind of painful to read, but it turns out there's no better response than laughter to the existence of a comic in which someone smashes through a window and yells "UP AGAINST THE WALL, MALE CHAUVINIST PIG" at the Hulk. That's a line that's really lost on any color of Hulk except perhaps this one. It's a pity Valkyrie (or a Valkyrie, or the Valkyries, I'm not picky) didn't get her debut in The Dark World, but really the movie had enough on its plate already. Maybe next time. You can find two more pieces of concept art, including one with her winged horse Aragorn, at Nizzi's page.

    Warning: May Contain Feelings

    A little while ago, Jaimie Alexander told an interviewer that she was getting more involved with the children's hospital in LA and hoped to go in-character to hang out with the kids sometime soon. Well, she did this week, giving out posters and DVDs and letting the kids pose with Sif's sword and shield. Cuuuuuuuuuuute.

  7. Lightning, Thunderclouds, Thor 2

    Review

    These are dark times. Dark and gritty times. Or so it would seem from our choices at the box office, where trends kicked up (but hardly established) by the Nolanverse Batman films continue to cloud every superhero franchise for miles around. This is a land where wonderment is traded for plot expedience, story pacing replaced by gorgeous, if rampant, CGI. Thor: The Dark World is no exception, being as dark as its title suggests. Fun to watch, but ultimately only slightly more substantial than its predecessor, T:TDW suffers from being the middle chapter of its series, if not a smaller piece in the giant puzzle that is the MCU. Its visual clout may be mighty, but its story lacks punch. Engage at your peril, for through this ethereal portal lie SPOILERS.

    Asgardian. Get it?

    Charmin isn't just jumping on the Thor bandwagon. They want you to know that they've always been an Asgardian. Get it? Because it sounds like "ass guardian" and they make toilet paper -- for your butt. This is brilliant marketing at its finest.
