Thor: The Dark World, or Thor 2 as the average movie goer will know it by, will be one of the movies 2013 will be remembered for. As the third installment in the Thor series, it’s bigger, badder and more interesting.
Why more interesting? Well, consider that Thor, his farther Odin and his home world of Asgard face a foe so formidable that they must enlist the help of Loki, one of the most evil characters in the Thor universe. Malekith the Accursed is a no-nonsense antagonist hell bent on getting what he wants — taking over the universe!
The following gallery provide high resolution still pictures of not just Thor, Loki, Jane Foster and Malekith, but also closeups of secondary characters like Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif, Zachary Levi’s Fandral, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbajen’s two characters Algrim the Strong and Kurse, and Idris Elba’s Heimdall.
Thor: The Dark World was directed by Alan Taylor and stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster) and Christopher Eccleston (Malekith).
First Justice League Trailer is Entertaining, Heavy on Humor
Warner Bros. dropped a lot of great content at San Diego Comic Con, including an impressive first trailer for Wonder Woman and a teaser for the Justice League movie.
In the case of the Justice League trailer, it makes a very good impression. It’s heavy on humor between some of the world’s greatest superheroes but a little light on action, indicating a tonal difference between Justice League and Batman v Superman.
We also get a our first looks at The Flash and Cyborg in action — let us know what you think about their design…
I gotta say, after watching the trailer, I am much more optimistic about Justice League. Let’s just hope the finished movie is as entertaining.
Justice League: Part 1 is scheduled to hit theaters on November 17, 2017. It is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Mamoa, J.K. Simmons, Amber Heard, Ezra Miller, and Ray Fisher.
First Wonder Woman Trailer More Than Impresses
At San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. revealed the first trailer for the Wonder Woman movie, giving comic book fans their first taste of what actress Gal Gadot’s powerful heroine will bring to the DC cinematic universe.
That’s right, after many false starts, a live-action Wonder Woman film is on its way and it looks better than we could have imagined…
What do you think?
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Lucy Davis, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, and Saïd Taghmaoui. It releases in theaters on June 23, 2017.

Second Doctor Strange Trailer Even Trippier Than First
Doctor Strange, one of my most anticipated movies of 2016, has received a second trailer, and it’s even trippier than the first one.
Revealed at San Diego Comic Con, the new trailer sheds more light on Stephen Strange’s journey from a mere surgeon to a powerful sorcerer on a mission to save the world.
Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) are the main highlights, but we also get an extended look at the movie’s main bad guy, Kaecilius, who is played by Mads Mikkelsen.
See all three of them in action in the trippy trailer…
I will be interesting to discover how Dr. Strange’s adventure impact the rest of the MCU. We suspect Marvel will use it to tie together the supernatural and downright fantasy elements (e.g. Guardians of the Galaxy) to the slightly more grounded, sci-fi events of The Avengers‘ world.
The Dr. Strange movie releases on October 28, 2016, in Europe and on November 4, 2016, in North America. What do you hope to see?
