Up there is the first poster for Thor: The Dark World, which will get the magical side of Marvel’s Phase Two going this November.
Following up that poster though is a few of our first offiicial images from the film, care of USA Today, and they tell us right away that Natalie Portman spent some time on the Asgard sets. Jane will join her superhero hunk in his home realm and stir up some shit with the family, according to Kevin Fiege:
“It’s superhero action, but it’s the familiar territory of a love triangle where the parents think your girlfriend is wrong for you. That’s how the best of these movies work.”
The Marvel honcho also reveals that Loki will be a part of the story, even as he remain behind god-proof bars. Appropriately enough for the son of Anthony Hopkins, it sounds as if he’ll get to have some more behind-glass Hannibal Lecter moments as he did in The Avengers–
“Needing Loki’s help turns everything on its head. And it allows us to explore the underlying complexities of their relationship. It really ends up being a kind of chess match.”
I guess they may find a way to change things up, but Hiddleston does great work as the sneering villain, so I’m down with it either way.
Game Of Thrones alum Alan Taylor is directing the film, with a massive cast to support him including; Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins.
