Thor The Dark World comes out in theaters on Friday November 8th, that’s like tonight if you’re going to stand in line to watch a midnight showing of it. Thanks to Disney for flying me to the red carpet premiere and allowing me to interview certain cast members this past week. I really feel like I have an in depth understanding of the movie.
And I loved it. I’m really excited with how they put Thor: The Dark World together because it’s a lot lighter than the first one and I would let Miles watch it. He loves hero movies and this one is perfect for him. I would suggest watching all the Avenger Movies before watching this one, only because it makes your understanding of things and little innuendos to other movies make sense, but this movie could stand alone as well.
Thousands of years ago, a race of beings known as Dark Elves tried to send the universe into darkness by using a weapon known as the Aether. But warriors from Asgard stop them but their leader Malekith escapes to wait for another opportunity. The warriors find the Aether and since it can’t be destroyed, they try to hide it.
Thor The Dark World begins in line with all the other Avengers movies. Jane is trying to move on because Thor has been gone for two years. However, she’s not really moving on because she’s following an anomaly hoping it will bring her closer to him. Instead she finds trouble. She’s transported to a very old dark alien device that is pure dark matter in the form of energy and it’s absorbed into her body. She finds a way home and as soon as she gets back to Earth Thor arrives. Of course he’s been watching her from Asgard. That’s when he finds out there is something wrong with her and takes her to Asgard in hopes their doctors can heal her. And then the evil elf creatures thought to be dead attack Asgard and big stuff happens and I don’t want to tell you because you need to go see if for yourself!!! And yes Loki is involved.
The movie looks amazing in 3D, absolutely crisp and not distracting, I even forgot I was wearing the 3D glasses. Asgard is beautiful so stunning and you’ll be surprised to know that the sets were real. The rooms in the castle were all real, even Loki’s jail was real.
