This article contains major spoilers for Thor: The Dark World.
One of the best things about Thor: The Dark World is it leaves many intriguing unanswered questions. The biggest one involves the ripple effect of the mid-credits scene, which we’ll discuss shortly. But there’s also the fate of Loki. As you know if you’ve seen the film, there’s no real definitive answer as to Loki’s intentions at the end. To get an answer, I went to the source (or sources): Tom Hiddleston, director Alan Taylor and Marvel President Kevin Feige. I asked each what they thought of the film’s ending, and the answers suggest it has major Phase 3 implications.
We also found out why Kurse didn’t let Loki out of his cage, where exactly Thor ends up at the very end of the movie, and why the final credits tag is there at all. Below, read the quotes from the men who made the decisions. Read More »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 continues this weekend with the release of Alan Taylor‘s Thor: The Dark World. Coming from Game of Thrones, Taylor was hired to bring a new level of reality and action to the Thor universe, and many think he succeeded. Others do not.
Fresh off the events of The Avengers, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is imprisoned in Asgard and a new threat rises: Malekith (Christopher Eccelston), head of the Dark Elves, who hopes to destroy not only Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Asgard, but Earth, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and the entire universe.
After you see Thor: The Dark World, there is so, so much to discuss: Its effect on the rest of the MCU, the two credits teases, some major plot points and other surprises. Here’s where you can do that. Below, tell us and your fellow /Film readers what you thought of Thor: The Dark World. Read More »
Even though Thor is the title character in Thor: The Dark World, it’s pretty obvious who the fans really want to see: Tom Hiddleston as Loki. The filmmakers knew this too, and after production completed, shot additional footage to add more of the character. That’s not the only influence the actor had on the film, however. In several older interviews, Hiddleston mentioned he pitched Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige on multiple ideas for his character and that some of them actually got used in the film.
So what specifically was he referring to? I asked Hiddleston just that, and his answer is more important to the film’s story than you’d think. We don’t spoil specifics of Thor: The Dark World below, but the conversation does indicate one big general aspect of the film. Read More »
If one were to believe all the negative buzz during production on Thor: The Dark World, you’d assume the film is a disaster. It’s not. In fact, it’s pretty fantastic and a shining example of how things many laymen think of as huge red flags — such as reshoots and rewrites — can actually be used to drastically improve a film.
During production, several rumors came out about the making of the Thor sequel. In the coming days, we’ll give you the scoop on all of them. First up, much was made over the fact that director Alan Taylor went back to add more scenes with Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki. That’s true and, below, we’ll tell you which scenes were added. Second, Taylor mentioned how Avengers director Joss Whedon was brought in to help with a few scenes and we can tell you which scenes he rewrote.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original Thor, but I was starting to get psyched for Thor: The Dark World after seeing Thor’s plot extended in clever ways in The Avengers, and after reading Germain’s mostly-positive review of the film.
I was unpleasantly surprised to find that Thor: The Dark World is quite a mess. Not only are the action and stakes underwhelming, it also squanders a lot of the quality character work done in the first film, making me appreciate that film so much more. After the jump, hear my thoughts on the latest entry in the Marvel film universe.
