Briefly: Months ago, Gavin O’Connor‘s film Jane Got a Gun was one of the most talked about films in Hollywood. Now, after a quiet period and some schedule changes, there’s a new Jane Got a Gun release date set for February 20, 2015. Read More »

At times it can seem like there’s little point to actually buying Blu-ray discs. Sure, there’s the little matter of the superior sound and picture, but these days you can legally download the film (usually a few weeks before the disc release) and watch almost all the extras early as the company disperses them across the internet before discs are on shelves. Case in point, Thor: The Dark World.
The Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray doesn’t hit shelves until February 25 but we’ve already seen multiple videos from the release including Tom Hiddleston as an Avenger, auditioning for Thor and even some deleted scenes. Now, we have an extended clip from the gag reel, which is pretty cute as far as gag reels go. Check it out below. Read More »

Last week, Thor stars Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth appeared on BBC TV’s The Graham Norton Show to promote Thor: The Dark World. Portman talked about the huge difference in height between her and her co-star, which resulted in a comparison of their action figures. Check out the funny clip embedded after the jump.

While Kenneth Branagh struggled to define a world in the original Thor, Alan Taylor has the gift of audience familiarly with its sequel Thor: The Dark World. Branagh’s original film took a long time to find its footing and never quite explored how great the characters of Thor and Loki could be. That second issue was ironed out in The Avengers.
So Thor: The Dark World hits the ground running with fully realized, charismatic and confident portrayals of all the characters involved. It’s defined by Thor being an ultimate hero and Loki being a mischievous villain. That, coupled with plenty of Avengers-size action, laugh-out-loud humor and Marvel Cinematic Universe easter eggs help make Thor: The Dark World one of the best Marvel films to date. Read More »

Last year, I traveled to London to visit the set of the Marvel sequel Thor 2: The Dark World. The photo above is me holding Mjölnir, Thor’s iconic hammer — it’s actually heavier than it looks — in the massive weapon room of the film’s production offices. After the jump you can read about the many things that I learned while on set, and watch a video blog reaction I recorded after the visit. Later this week we’ll be publishing some of the interviews we conducted on set with the talent and crew, so be on the look out for them as well.

It’s not news at this point that there’s been a tragic dearth of female leads in the current glut of superhero movies. What is news, however, is Natalie Portman‘s suggestion that that could change soon.
The Thor: The Dark World actress hinted that a female-led film was in the works at Marvel Studios. Granted, it’ll likely be some time yet before any such movie hits screens, but better late than never, right? Hit the jump to read her comments on the matter — as well as Stan Lee‘s take on the same issue.

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty excited to see Thor: The Dark World. Where I felt the first Thor was just okay, after the character’s emergence in The Avengers, along with the blossoming of his evil brother Loki, the prospect of seeing them both on the big screen again is quite exciting. And it’s coming soon. Thor: The Dark World, directed by Alan Taylor, opens November 8.
Today, a whole bunch of brand new still images only add to that excitement. In them, you get a much closer look at Christopher Eccleston‘s bad guy Malekith the Accursed, some sweeping scenery and a few new glimpses of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander and more to boot. Check them out below. Read More »

The D23 Expo has come and gone but the content just keeps on flowing. Marvel has posted videos of their presentations from the Live Action event, featuring cast members from Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as some discussion of Guardians of the Galaxy.
Unfortunately for people who weren’t in the room, the actual footage from the movies isn’t included.
