Thor: The Dark World

  1. 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.

  2. Charmin Wins Twitter Today with Thor: The Dark World “Asgardian” Joke [UPDATED]

    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.

    What we wouldn't give for a copy of that poster.

    Imagine it: you are going to see Thor 2: The Dark World at the Shanghai Bona Insun International Cineplex. No doubt you're probably excited to watch all your favorite Norse gods battle it out a second time. And then you turn the corner and see -- this. Could it get any better? No, it can't.

  6. Winning Images from Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World Student Cosplay Contest

    THROOM! KAPOW! Turns out onomatopoeia can help win you movie tickets.

    Marvel challenged students to reenact scenes from the Thor: The Dark World trailer to promote the movie's release in the UK. With 438 photo entries coming in from 11 schools, the winners from Kaplan Cambridge had pretty decent odds, but that didn't stop them from going all out on some entertaining Thor photos.

  7. Loki Shoves A Small Child in this Comedy Central Thor: The Dark World Promo [Video]

    He looks pretty dapper while doing it, though. We'll give him that.

    Guys, we're starting to think that Tom Hiddleston really does have a problem where he thinks he's Loki. Seriously, it seems like he'll take literally any opportunity to dress up in the full costume and treat other people with mock-contempt. How much you wanna bet that this commercial spot was his idea? Come on, it totally was.

  11. Tom Hiddleston Illustrated Loki’s Horns And You Can Bid On Them For Charity

    Excelsior!

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess Tom Hiddleston isn't an artist. I will go further out on that limb and say fans will bid on anything he's touched. Empire Magazine are auctioning off this doodle and signature from the Thor: The Dark World actor. They write, "drawn by Mr. Hiddleston himself at the Thor press conference in 2011. We've had it for a while, and finally figured we should auction it off for charity." The proceeds of the sale will go to UNICEF UK and you have nine days to bid on Ebay for it. Just FYI, it's already sitting around $730. (via Empire) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  12. Here’s Joss Whedon’s Actual Contribution to Thor: The Dark World

    Excelsior!

    Last month we heard the wonderful story of how Joss Whedon swooped in to the set of Thor: The Dark World to fix some problems director Alan Taylor was having. At the time it caused some concern—not among us, because we were too delighted at the mental image of fixer Joss Whedon parachuting in to save the day—but some others expressed concerns that Thor might’ve been in big trouble if Taylor needed Whedon to do last-minute surgery. But chillax, says Marvel President Kevin Feige. That’s not what happened at all.

    Highly Successful Marketing Strategies

    This first clip from Thor: The Dark World gives us a more complete look at the Loki prison scene that's been popping up in all the trailers. Hey, Loki won't be in The Avengers sequel. Marvel has to milk the world's obsession while they still can. All joking aside, Loki's face when Thor talks about the "glimmer of hope" he used to have broke my heart a little bit.
