As part of the marketing for the Phase 2 Box Set, Marvel released a deleted scene from Thor: The Dark World included in the set. In it, an imprisoned Loki uses his illusions to make him King of Asgard. Which means, basically, he makes himself Thor. Red cape and Mjolnir included.
A sane person would say the best part of Marvel completing a series of movies is getting to see those movies. That person would be half right. The other great part is they get to release a big Blu-ray box set collecting all types of information about the movies.
Everyone is talking about Captain America: Civil War this week, and for good reason. The first trailer is out and it promises to be a mega kick-off to Phase three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is once again playing a machine cloaked in human skin in Terminator Genisys, but now he’s the most human thing in a plastic movie. Arnie’s trademark grimace looks rough around the edges, like a slab of petrified wood after years of erosion. In a movie that’s basically shitty comfort food, the…
Villains sure do like to be captured on purpose, don't they? We've seen it again and again as a trope, but it's not always a bad thing. Sometimes, it does show just how brilliant our bad guy is. And sometimes, it shows just how stupid our heroes are. Here are the best — and worst — times a villain got sent to the…
From concept artist Andrew Kim we have new looks into the concept art of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, and Guardians of the Galaxy. It turns out that Peter Quill had his pick of weird rat creatures to use as a microphone.
Marvel started making its own movies with Iron Man, but the quality control really got excellent starting with Captain America. Which happens to be around the time Joss Whedon came on board as a creative consultant. What happens to Marvel's movies when Whedon leaves? Nobody knows yet. But here's what we know so far.
Jonny McCoy is a concept artist who just released a slew of work done for three of this year's huge releases: Thor: The Dark World, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Edge of Tomorrow (big internationally). The art straddles a wide range of work, all of it awesome.
Marvel's self-made superhero movies are box office blockbusters and massively fun. But they're not perfect; like so many summer action flicks, they can be plenty dumb, and there's no sense in pretending otherwise. Here are 10 plot holes from Marvel's movies that we're still trying not to think about.
Did you blow your chance to watch Gravity in 3D and/or in Imax? You poor bastard. You can't possibly recapture the experience on your home TV (yes, even if you have one of those giant home theaters with stadium seating), but at least you'll get to pause to use the bathroom. Plus Thor, Harry Potter, and more!
As predicted, that 48-second snippet released last week was only a teaser; here's the full 3.5-minute gag reel from Thor: The Dark World. There are more dangerous things in the universe than Malekith, and they include recalcitrant ravens, Natalie Portman's propensity for violence, and Thor's cape.
If you've seen a big-budget movie lately, you've seen someone in a clear prison, made of glass or plastic. It's an unavoidable trope, because it's so hard to film people fighting from behind bars. Don't believe us? Here's our complete round-up of see-through prisons in pop culture.
Last night's Agents of SHIELD was billed as being a quasi-sequel to Thor: the Dark World. As if Coulson's squad would be spending the whole episode cleaning up the aftermath of Thor's fight with Malekith. In fact, it was much more a standalone affair — which pointed to one problem with the shared continuity.
By Odin, this Thor: The Dark World concept art is amazing. Created by artist extraordinaire Nathan Schroeder, it shows some of the Nine Realms looking even spiffier than they did on screen. Plus there are some amazing animatics from the first movie.
As with all the previous Marvel movies, Thor: The Dark World's final moments were full of surprises — including two scenes during the end credit. So we asked Marvel's Kevin Feige and director Alan Taylor all about the end credit scenes and the big twist before the credits. Major spoilers ahead...
It's a grim time for big-screen superheroes. Rebooted versions of Superman and Spider-Man both have daddy issues. Tony Stark has PTSD. Wolverine kinda wants to die. So it's a relief to watch Thor: The Dark World, which is the lightest, funniest superhero movie in ages. Let a thunder-god show you how to make a joyful…

Thor: The Dark of the World is a total gamechanger for evil, spaceship-flying elves and hammer-throwing Norse gods. Thanks to director Alan Taylor's past work on Game of Thrones, we're getting to see the fantastical Asgard through the lens of reality, which only makes it more badass. Read what Taylor pushed for from…
Not only is actor Tom Hiddleston a charming impressionist, Comic-Con god, and Joss Whedon's secret soft-spot, but he's also an incredibly thoughtful person to chat deeply with about the inner workings of the God of Mischief, Loki, and his new mindset in Thor: the Dark World, premiering this Friday. Which we did. Swoon!
There's casting news for Game of Thrones and Supernatural, hints of exactly when in 2015 Star Wars: Episode VII will be released, and Chris Pratt talking about Vin Diesel as Groot. Plus, does a BBC book hint how, exactly, John Hurt's character fits into "The Day of the Doctor"?
