Thor The Dark World – Official Movie Trailer 2013

Loki Thor The Dark World
Besides The Avengers movie, I think THOR was the best Marvel film to date. I know many will argue that the first IRON MAN film had better action and that CAPTAIN AMERICA was a lot of fun and nostalgic with it’s period setting. But I really think Kenneth Branagh’s work on THOR was not only the most challenging of the bunch, but also the most rewarding.

THOR had all the elements required for a good story: action, romance, humor, even some Shakespearean-like political intrigue and drama. So when news came that Kenneth Branagh would not be returning for THOR THE DARK WORLD, I was a bit disappointed. I also knew that whoever would direct the film had their work cut out for them. One of the challenges for the story of THOR is being able to deal with all the different story elements and settings. I believe the first film did an excellent job of balancing the demands of the Norse God Mythology, the Marvel film universe and the fantasy world settings in the story.



To fill Branagh’s shoes, Marvel Studios wisely chose Alan Taylor to take over directing duties. Alan Taylor is best known for his work on the hit HBO television show GAME OF THRONES. His work with period settings and fantasy elements seems to fit the challenges of the film.

Based on the trailer, it looks like Taylor is able to recapture the magic of the first film. He has also seemingly put his own spin on the franchise. This time around the look of THOR THE DARK WORLD is definitely more stark and saturated than the colorful spectacle of the first film. Perhaps it’s an indication of the menacing times our characters will face in this film. Also Chris Hemsworth looks very comfortable and confident in his portrayal now after playing the character in two previous films. He seems to exude a more royal presence this time around. I’m also happy to see Kat Dennnings is returning, to hopefully add much needed humor to the film.

THOR THE DARK WORLD stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgard, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins. The film is directed by Alan Taylor and is written by Christopher Yost, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. THOR THE DARK WORLD is scheduled for release November 8, 2013.
