For those that want to see all the Thor Dark World TV spots and a world TV premiere of the Captain America Trailer - the FX cable channel is having "Super Hero Sunday". They've been showing Thor spots all day and are advertising the Cap trailer to come later. Just an FYI
Loki in Comedy Central commercial (if someone finds the whole commercial please post it) t:
Boy,finding lots of Thor related news today
I didn't realized that was him in the 1st movie
People were talkin' about it in the first Thor threads when the movie came out.
It's too bad JMS has a falling-out with Marvel, because I always thought he's a good writer, and I enjoyed his Babylon 5 series.
I didnt think it was a falling out
The way JMS tells it ,
Marvel wanted him to tie his ongoing Arc to a company wide event and he amicably declined.
Ender's Game BO Wkend
I was actually expecting Ender's Game to do much better than that on opening weekend, considering the budget that it also had while making it. I am hoping that Thor: The Dark World doesn't get hindered by Catching Fire in the weeks to come, they should have probably released this movie in October when its only real competition would have been Gravity... I am still expecting TDW to do very well considering it's current standings.
The Dark World has two weeks to get done what it needs to get done domestically at the box office because Katniss Everdeen is going to obliterate the competition.
Do not be surprised if Catching Fire hits 180 million opening weekend. Not even kidding. That thing is going to make serious coin.
I'm just confused about one thing regarding Loki though...
I mean he ends up hijacking the Throne at the end of the film, thus posing as Odin and leaving his fate unknown to both the audience and the characters, and yet prior to all of that, he goes out of his way to help Thor take down Malekith and even helps protect Jane while doing so.
I mean was it ever presented at the beginning that Loki was planning on doing this all along, that he used Thor to get him out of Jail and already knew what he was going to do, and thus lied about helping Thor because of his desire to get vengeance for Frigga's death?
Or was Loki really being sincere in wanting to go after Malekith because he actually cared about his mother, which I'm not sure why considering that he supposedly cut all ties with Asgard and with everyone else and only cares about himself....and that him taking the throne was just something that made itself opportune for him after he had gotten his revenge?
It's not clearly thought out, I'll give you that but I think the key to the whole thing is Frigga. Think about the moments with Frigga that directly relate to Loki in the narrative and I think that's the logic of it.
And again, this is Loki we're talking about. He's always a step ahead. He clearly, I thought, kept adjusting to the situation presented to him in the film.
I haven't seen the film yet, but I think Loki definitely wants to stop Malekith. If he doesn't, he dies along with the rest of Asgard.
This is what I've been thinking all year. The Dark World's numbers were going to suffer once Catching Fire came out. MARVEL/Disney better do some mega marketing this week to fire the GA up even more. I think the Avengers movie would be hurt by a movie like this too. It has way to many teenagers and young adults attention than what a Thor sequel has to offer. Not for me though.
Well I unfortunately haven't seen the film yet, but in your honest opinion, would you say that...
Loki actually did care for Frigga still has his mother and that her death is what triggered him wanting to get rid of Dark Elves, or it being one of his reasons for doing so?
It's all very ambiguous.
From his cell, Loki tells Kurse which way to go to break down Asgard's defensive barrier which allows Malekith and the dark elves through to attack. It's not clear that he necessarily understood in advance the repercussions of helping Kurse but it's also not shown that Loki feels at all guilty for aiding Kurse after he then kills Frigga.
Good. I hope Thor sends it to the bottom of the list.
He feels his mother was the only one that loved him. He still considers her his mother. He wanted vengeance but used the situation to his best advantage outside of that. With Thor renouncing the throne to be with Jane, Loki just lets him go.
