August 07, 2013, 10:51 AM — The Marvel Universe of movies keeps chugging along - here's the latest trailer for "Thor: The Dark World", aka "Thor 2", which follows recent films like "Iron Man 3" into explaining events that happened after last summer's "The Avengers".
The sequel brings back characters from the original "Thor" film, but this time we spend more time in Asgard and meet more of Thor's friends/allies/enemies, including female Asgardian warrior "Sif". And yes, Tom Hiddleston's Loki is back to do mischief on our heroes:
My wife and I disagree on the enjoyment of the Thor character and films - she wasn't down with all of the Norse mythology and lore as much as I was - out of all of the different Marvel characters, she's probably the least enamored with Thor (although she's enamored with Chris Hemsworth, which is a different story). But we're still onboard for this movie from the comic-book nature of it, as well as next Spring's "Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier". Are you in/out on this film, or on Thor in general? Let me know in the comments.
