Empire – Bryan Singer On Days Of Future Past
“We’ve cracked it in a way that it makes sense. I had a two-hour conversation with James Cameron about time travel, string theory, multiverses and all that. You have to create your rules and stick wtih them.” and “I’m taking into account every movie – I’m not just grabbing my first two movies and First Class and smashing them together.”

ComicBookMovie – New THOR: THE DARK WORLD Details  Hit; Producer Talks Redefining CBM Genre And More
“Like in Indiana Jones, while there’s high stakes and high danger, there’s  always fun. We have to constantly redefine what a superhero film is or it’d just  exhaust the audience. So Iron Man is the James Bond-y, classic, suave action hero; Captain America’s the period piece; Hulk is the  monster movie; Avengers the disaster movie; and Thor is the science-fiction  epic.”

ComicBookMovie – Mark Strong On Possibly Coming  Back To The KICK-ASS Franchise And GREEN LANTERN’S Failure
“I felt the same way about Green Lantern. I really liked the build up and  Geoff Johns’ commitment to Green Lantern, and everybody worked on it with the  best of intentions,” he said. Going on to say, “Ya know,  nobody makes a movie thinking ‘oh god let’s just make a terrible movie, let’s  not really try in this one shall we? Should we not even bother?’ Everyone was  really committed, and it’s a shame it didn’t catch fire in the right  way.”

From ComicBookMovie:

Marvel’s  International Vice President, Nigel Cook, took to a convention in Italy, dubbed  the “Professional Cinema Days in Sorrento,” to present the first bit of (raw)  footage from next year’s much-anticipated Thor: The Dark World film. And  roughly-translated descriptions, courtesy of @Thor2Fans and @vingadoresdepre via Lavik Web Magazine, ScreenWEEK and Primissima, have surfaced dishing out a few  spoilers for the Alan Taylor-directed Marvel sequel. Check them out!

“In the preview, a voice-over is heard with the oath of the God of  Thunder as the new supreme ruler. We see a clash between Thor and the enemy  army, in a world that is neither Asgard let alone the Earth. We see Chris Hemsworth wielding his hammer and Tom Hiddleston as Loki first wounded without a  helmet, with long, loose hair and then imprisoned; his anger increasingly  desperate and irrational.

Then there’s a scene later in which he is free again,  but still furious. Against the backdrop of a forest, in the middle of a  clearing, among the dust, we in fact face off anthropomorphic creatures, but  also a big “gorilla” krosan tusker: a rather alien fauna varies so, although not  extreme in size (there are also some envoys/ambassadors of a people mysterious, with oval face and black eyes, elongated and sunken)

The rest of the  images show glimpses of Asgard, with Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Natalie Portman  in clothes that seem more like a princess; an Asgardian princess. In between,  there are images of an epic battle on horseback, who seems to have left an epic  cloak-and-dagger. The threat to the Asgardians is certainly a  new alien race  pale (now identified as the dark elves).

A black spaceship shaped  irregularly looks like a serious threat to Asgard. More sequences show Natalie  Portman then alongside Thor lying on the ground, probably overwhelmed in a  clash.”

After the clips were shown, Nigel Cook reassured  the audience that Thor: The Dark World begins and ends on Earth. And he  added that the sets built for the sequel were the largest ever built for a  Marvel Studios movie. Cook apparently also expressed concern that the film  may not receive the same attention as Marvel’s first outing next year, Iron  Man 3, which the executive says takes place a year after the events of Marvel’s The Avengers.

CinemaBlend posted an article about what Chris Hemsworth had to say to MTV about the upcoming Thor: The Dark World movie.

The look of the film is a lot bigger than what we did even previously. The first one worked and people loved it, but this is with a different director and just has a totally different feel. There’s a definite “Game of Thrones” vibe thanks to [director] Alan [Taylor].

Now, I don’t watch Game of Thrones but I do know that it’s pretty gritty, lots of horrible deaths, etc. As a rule I generally don’t care for this style, I don’t mind realism and angst but “drama” (with the finger quotes) and gritty are a current fad I wish would go away.

That being said, this is a Marvel/Disney movie so I doubt he could have gone too terribly far off the reservation from the original story.

Besides, Loki, to me, was the best part of Thor so… yeah… Taylor can do whatever with Thor just so long as Loki gets to be… well… Loki…

CinemaBlend has new pictures from the set of Thor: The Dark World and for a moment I thought I was looking at someone’s model minatures.

Thor: The Dark World - Dark Elves

Seriously, model minatures.

There is also a picture of Eccleston as Malekith, the dots are kinda funny, I’m thinking that they are for some CG to be done in Post. I hope so, cause they are kinda weird.

Thanks to, we have the first official synopsis of Thor: The Dark World.

Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself.  In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

It’s kinda generic you know? He fights this bad guy who is apparently badder than Loki, he’s going to be reunited with his love interest, and ‘have to sacrifice everything to save us all’… like we haven’t seen that before in a thousand and one movies. We knew Malekith and Jane were going to be in the movie so nothing new there either. In fact, it’s pretty much what we already knew only ‘official’.

Though… we can be thankful for the lack of spoilers. 😉

That is exactly the question io9 has asked and seems there is a lot of rumor going around. This could be pretty cool. Viggo is a great actor but he didn’t seem to stand out like he should have after the LOTR series. Perhaps taking on a character that is very much unlike Aragon, yet is just as large as life, he can show himself to be the virsatile actor that he is. Here’s hoping!

EDIT: Nope, he won’t, sux!

Added bonus, Jamie Alexander kicking butt! And other images from Thor 2.

I wonder if she has the urge to say “I’m on a horse!”….
