Over a decade after it kicked into gear with X-Men and Spider-Man, the superhero movie trend shows no signs of flagging. Costumed heroes will keep going strong in 2013 with several more high-profile releases, including Man of Steel, Kick-Ass 2, The Wolverine, and Thor: The Dark World. While we’ve haven’t seen trailers for most of them so far (Man of Steel excepted) the latest issue of Empire Magazine offers a little taste of each movie with some new images.
Check them out after the jump.

Thor: The Dark World will be the second film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Two when it hits theaters on November 8, 2013. Director Alan Taylor has been shooting for several weeks now with a cast including newcomers Christopher Eccleston as the main villain Malekith, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje in a dual role and many others along with returning cast members Chris Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins and the rest.
It’s still very early in production though, early enough that casting is still ongoing. Richard Brake, best known for playing the murderous Joe Chill in Batman Begins, has been cast Thor’s older brother Tyr and Clive Russell, who will play Ser Brynden the Blackfish in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, is a captain in Thor’s Einherjar fighting force.

Before the second Thor film, Thor: The Dark World, went into production, star Chris Hemsworth said that director Alan Taylor was bringing a whole new feel to the film. He said the film would give Asgard a ”more tangible” and “more organic feel.” Mere days into filming, that’s already coming to fruition.
Hemsworth, Taylor and hundreds of extras are currently filming in England and beautiful set photos have leaked out featuring a massive, massive battle in the woods. After the jump, check out a bunch of the photos, which include what looks to be a new, slimmed down costume. Read More »
Briefly: Alice Krige has a look that is both regal and gorgeously unusual, which has made her perfect for roles as the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact, as well as in films and TV series like Silent Hill, Deadwood, and the Quay Brothers’ early feature Institute Benjamenta.
Now Krige is set for a role in Thor: The Dark World, which begins shooting later this month under the direction of Alan Taylor from a script by Robert Rodat. We don’t know her role, but we do know that Christopher Eccleston is playing Malekith the Accursed, the leader of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim. So she may be an associated personality. Krige confirmed her participation in the film this past weekend at the big Star Trek convention in Las Vegas, and noted that she may not be recognizable, which has led to suspicion that she’ll be wearing a good deal of makeup and/or prosthetics. But why hire Krige just to hide her?
Thor: The Dark World brings Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Tadanobu Asano, Stellan Skarsgard and Ray Stevenson back into Asgard and related realms. It is set for release on November 8, 2013. [CBM]
While Marvel’s recently Comic-Con panel answered many, many questions about Phase 2 of their Cinematic Universe, one huge question remained: How will Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man fit in? After showing the test footage, Wright and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige just let the film sit there leaving all of us to wonder if the film would play a part in Phase 2, presumably ending with The Avengers 2, or maybe kick off Phase 3 after Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Solider and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Latino Review is now reporting that once Alan Taylor finishes shooting Thor: The Dark World in London, Wright will start shooting Ant-Man in the same space. Read more after the jump. Read More »

Zachary Levi is going from the Buy More to Asgard. The star of the cult TV show Chuck is in negotiations to join the cast of Alan Taylor‘s Thor 2 as Fandral, one of the Warriors Three. But wait, you say. Wasn’t that part was played by Josh Dallas in the first film? Correct. However, Dallas now stars on ABC’s hit show Once Upon a Time and had to bow out of the Marvel sequel for that, leaving the door open for Levi. Oddly enough, Levi was reportedly first cast as Fandral in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor but his show Chuck got picked up for another season and he had to do that. Now the roles are reversed.
