The ass kicking Asgardian makes his return to Earth and the big screen for the first time since his destructive dance in NYC at the end of The Avengers. What is he back on Earth to do? Was he jonesing for some shawarma? What adventures lie ahead? Maybe this will shed some light on Thor’s intentions:
“’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.”
Unlike many, I rather enjoyed the first Thor movie. There were some issues with it, but overall it was entertaining. The sequences on the Asgard side of the universe are spectacular, I really like Kenneth Branagh’s direction in the first movie and his casting choices were spot on. In this sequel it looks like they took the really good parts of the first movie, cranked them up to 11, threw in some Avengers references and gave us this:
I’m a comic book movie fan, especially this series of films. I’ve seen and rather enjoyed every one of the individual Avenger’s films. I own them. So I may be blind to some of their flaws, even so, they are just good fun as a whole. Just suspend disbelief and lose yourself for a couple hours in the Marvel Universe. Let it happen. I’m really excited to see this on November 8th.
