Praise costume designers (hopefully they can join CAWS after the somewhat disappointing Avengers's Cap costume )

I'm loving the whole chestpiece/front armor.. idk if its too different from Avengers but I really noticed it in that picture. Man IM3 and T:TDW are shaping up to be really amazing!

The characters are these cosmic beings of immense power who aren't as reality grounded which creates a lot of epic, unlimited displays of badass action. Sounds like Kurse is shaping up to be a very kickass villain that can do a lot of serious destruction.

The only thing I do not like about Thor's new outfit is that they removed the runes from his chest discs. Those looked great! The other thing is, is he still wearing a wig? I mean his own hair should be long enough by now ... I saw him having long hair on photos when he was not dressed as Thor. Mh.

Several cast members have made comments that one positive aspect of Thor2 is that it is more grounded in reality. Those comments have puzzled me in light of your observation above, which I made boldface.

That's funny to me. They have to be just referring to the personal stories??

Thespians and their poor way of articulating words outside of their acting.

Hmm...well characters that use magic or have super strength can't be too reality based though. Maybe what they mean is that it's more real because we'll actually see the human toll of powerful beings clashing, not that they'll be more mortal. Just watch an old movie like Superman II, preferably the Donner edit, and pay attention during the Metropolis fight between Superman and the Kyrptonian supervillains to see what I mean about great, fantastical powers clashing in populated areas. Maybe it's my generation and the times I grew up in but I don't really prefer my superhero movies too realistic though. Reality is what I live in. I want some knock down drag out, impossibly realized fights of great power and destruction. You can't get too real when the characters do not adhere to reality as we know it. There has to be some room for fantasy in there and suspension of disbelief.

exactly. I think believable in current MCU is a better word choice

Oh yes, yes...you have to present a fantastical element in a real world setting convincingly of course. In the 80's it seemed like a lot of fantasy based characters were thrown into the real world quite unsuccessfully, like Masters of the Universe and Beastmaster II for examples. It takes a very talented creative team to make fantastical, fantasy based type characters work in a real setting. I think Thor and Avengers to a lesser degree managed to integrate Thor's world in this setting pretty well.

Do they have their information wrong or was TDW moved from November to October?

But good stuff to hear they're impressive, now if only we knew why! Here's hoping we get a good look at toy fair. Anyone think we may end u seeing Kurse or Loki figs?

I think the UK release date is Oct 30th (and yes, I know it's not fair!)

on the second question, yes! I hope so!

If 2008 me could hear 2013 me, he would never believe me when I say that Thor 2 and GotG are the two Phase 2 movies I'm most looking forward to. I'm turning into a cosmic fanboy.

Okay, so that guy on IMDB who claimed to have seen some Thor 2 footage at a Disney conference last week, finally came back to that board and posted a bit more. The first paragraph quoted below is referring to a question about the length of Loki's hair. The rest is in answer to a few other questions people had. Other than the new thing he's saying about Loki having a beard, I think it all goes right along with the reports from the Italian footage.
Quote:
His hair looked a tad longer than Avengers, I could be wrong though, it was a very brief shot. It definitely wasn't shorter!

And no, it still felt very sci-fi, the medievel feel wasn't dominant... it was mainly the scenery, i.e. woodland, as well as the horse and riders that just gave me that feel.

Anyways, it looks totally epic, and I can assure that this will AT LEAST match, if not exceed, the original Thor. It sorta gave me a 'The Dark Knight' feel - everything is amplified, everything is escalated. Can't wait for this one!
His original post and link below....
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1981115/board/thread/209864998
Quote:
I'm not sure what to say without giving too much away - but I guess I could give you guys one shot to talk about.

Loki, wearing what I can only describe as 'tramp clothes', with a very scraggly beard (think Christian Bale in Batman Begins, when he stole the fruit to survive) sat and slumped against the wall of a white room, yelling manically to himself.

I don't know who he was yelling at (if anyone) or why he was yelling, but it looked very interesting. It's a sort of flipped parallel to Avengers, when he was captured - only this time, he's not particularly enjoying being a prisoner and he's not being treated well.

Also the footage looks very Game of Thrones like. E.g. lots of battle scenes, involving horses, Thor hammering the sh** out of everything, stuff like that. It looked very MEDIEVEL.
Anyway, imma shut up now. But any questions about the footage I've just described I'll happily answer.

Hah! That sounds like a normal day for me. Well, except for the scraggly beard that is.

LOL! Maybe he's kissing Jane and that's why Thor is making a cranky face.
