Tease Me, Baby! - Thor: The Dark World

The second trailer for Thor 2: Asgardian Boogaloo was released today. The movie comes out on October 30th this year and will be the second post-Avengers film.

There has been a change of director since the first Thor. Kenneth Branagh has been replaced by Alan Taylor, a director who has worked primarily on television. He's worked on Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Sopranos, and tons more shows but he has only made 3 movies previously and none with the kind of budget that this film has so it will be considered a step up for him.

All the principal cast return, along with a few additions, and with a late release date like it has there shouldn't be much competition in the box office. Can't fail, right?

Right?



- Take Me Down To The Paradise City

The colour and style of the last film was a little on the cartoon side. Things tended to look a little clunky. Similar to toys. This film however looks a little bit more sophisticated. Even Asgard looks more detailed.

- Cancel The Ragnorak

Idris Elba plays Heimdall, who in the comics almost never takes off his helmet. It's not a destruction of his character to have him here with the helmet off or anything like that but it took me by surprise nonetheless. And I'm sure the ladies aren't complaining.

- Smile Like You Mean It

Tom Hiddleston returns once again as Loki. If ever there was a man just having the time of his life in a role, it's him. I really get the impression that he'd play this character as long as they ask him to. I hope they keep asking him. And I'm sure the ladies aren't complaining.

- Swedish Murder Machine

Chris Hemsworth is turning into a man before our very eyes, folks. If the first movie was Thor learning to grow up, then this movie will show that effect. More-so Hemsworth is starting to look like an older man too. More commanding. And I'm sure the ladies aren't complaining.

Overall: in the end, Thor 1 did better in the box office than some of his Avenger counterparts, so hopefully this sequel can continue that success. It certainly looks a better film, hopefully it will back that claim up come release time. Bring a female friend.
