So are those big battles at the end supposed to be taking place on Asgard, or somewhere on Earth? Because if it's Asgard I really like the grittier, more real world look of it all (even if the world does suddenly look much less fanciful than how it looked in the first movie).

I wasn't really a fan of how overly-CG Asgard was in the first movie.
Well, we only saw a small portion of the city of Asgard in the first movie. There are scenes set there in the first movie where you can see the mountains and such in the distance.

Color me shocked on two counts:
1) That Josh Dallas was in the original Thor
2) They recast his role - Fandral - with Zachary Levi

With regards to the film itself, I just saw the trailer and it looks freaking awesome. Thor was my second-favorite of the 'Phase 1' films overall and my favorite of the 'Phase 1' solo films, and, based on the trailer, it looks like they've outdone themselves with the sequel.

Hopefully, they'll do more with the Warriors Three this time. In the last movie all of the good W3 stuff, the stuff that show their distinct personalities, wound up on the cutting room floor. And Hogun needs to stop with the smiling.

Great teaser trailer. Sure it might not have shown a lot of details, but it definitely got my excited, which all a teaser trailer needs to do. I was hoping to see more Malekith, but hopefully they'll do like they did with MoS and STID and show more of him in one of the next trailers.
I think lot more of this one will be taking place in Asgard, so I'm pretty sure we'll probably be seeing a lot more of that world and it's inhabitants.

What's funny about that is Zachary Levi had originally been cast to play Fandral in the first film, but had to drop out because of his commitment to Chuck, so Dallas replaced him. Now Dallas had to drop out because of his commitment to Once Upon a Time, so Levi replaced him.

^ I was aware of the symmetry; I was just shocked that, as an OUaT fan and someone who loved the first movie, I didn't know Dallas had played Fandral.

Re: Thor 2 -Movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2013

People at the movie boards I visit are just so stunned at how IM3 performed they admit they are unclear just how to predict Thor Dark World now.

Will the "Avengers Effect", as it's been dubbed there, give as strong a boost to Thor? Or come November will enough time have passed from TA that the effect isn't in play?

Coming off IM3's strong numbers some are starting to think TDW might be looking at $250m+, that if it's as good as just the teaser looked $300m domestic might be in play.

Crazy talk? And if it does how much more does Warners kick itself for having no WW film, cause you know the concepts are similar enough.

To be fair, Iron Man has always been a stronger franchise.

Also, I saw Avengers *ahem* several times in the theater. I'll maybe see IM3 once more. I can't see Thor being much different for me.

It will certainly be interesting to see. I've been wondering if there is a chance that the more fantasy type approach they seem to taking this time might scare off the people who were into the sci-fi aspects of the other movies.

Re: Thor 2 -Movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2013

The November release date adds an interesting wrinkle to the box office prospects of Thor: The Dark World. I think it'll make more than the first movie, but $300 million domestic is likely out of reach. Only two November releases - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Skyfall - have made over $300 million domestic to date. This year will probably see a third film join that club, but I think it'll be The Hunger Games: Catching Fire rather than Thor: TDW. My guess is that Thor: TDW will go over $200 million, but not over $250 million.

On the movie board that is the ceiling I placed on it as well Vulcan, about $250m.
That sounds both wildly optimistic and somehow reasonable should it perform with the greatness I'd like, for a Nov release.
