Thor: The Dark World is still a few weeks away, but it seems pretty likely to be a hit. I thought the movie was really fun, plenty of other critics agree, and fans are excited to see the Marvel Cinematic Universe continue to expand. All that makes it seem likely we’ll see Thor 3 in the future. In fact, Kevin Feige exclusively told us they do have ideas about that film, but it’s not in active development.
So what might those ideas be? Chris Hemsworth dropped a few hints on the Thor 3 plot in a new interview. Read that below and also check out a brand new, action-packed clip from the film, featuring Tom Hiddleston, that shows off the energy and humor present in Thor: The Dark World. Read More »

One of the many fun things about a new Marvel movie being released is an opportunity to see the older ones on the big screen again. For the release of The Avengers and Iron Man 3, Marvel organized theatrical marathons of the films leading up to the new movie, and the plan is no different for this coming November 7. That’s when AMC Theaters will host screenings of Thor, The Avengers, and end with Thor: The Dark World hours before it opens. Read More »
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 »
Most people are made of cells; Kevin Feige is made of news. Seemingly every time the Marvel Studios president does an interview, he drops a ton of interesting news about the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe. Speaking to Feige in London this weekend about Thor: The Dark World was no different. While the majority of that conversation dealt with major spoilers from the film (check back after the November 8 opening for that talk) he did offer up some interesting quotes about Marvel moving ahead.
First up, Feige said we’ve already heard all of the new properties they’re working on, most of which haven’t been officially announced. Things like Doctor Strange, Inhumans, Hulk etc. He then talked about why Ultron is bad enough to cause The Avengers to assemble again, but Malekith (in Thor: The Dark World) is not. Third, while Tom Hiddleston has confirmed he won’t be in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Feige said he wouldn’t be back before Thor 3. (A film they have ideas about, but is far from official). Finally, he explained how the Marvel release schedule might look moving ahead and that Comic-Con 2014 isn’t assuredly where we’d find out about those new films.

After grappling with Loki in Thor and The Avengers, the Asgardian prince will face an entirely new threat in the upcoming Thor: The Dark World. His name is Malekith the Accursed, he’s the leader of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, and he’s determined to take over the Nine Realms.
The latest clip shows the character, played by Doctor Who alum Christopher Eccleston, rolling out of bed and getting ready to start the day. But since he’s an otherworldly Marvel supervillain, his morning routine looks much grander and more sinister than yours probably does. Check it out after the jump.
