I dislike the different release dates. Why do I have to wait until November 8th?

I don't like it either, but it seems to be working out well for Marvel, so I don't see them changing it any time soon.

It was fun. Didn't stay for end end credits scene, did watch Guardians clip.



Also, if anybody doesn't want to wait until the end this is what the final end credits scene is -

Releasing it overseas first builds up hype for when it is released in America. This was shown with the Avengers, I remember the hype was huge the days up to the American premiere.

Also I think it helps deals with overseas piracy somewhat.

It's my birthday today (1st november) so i like to think that Marvel studios knew that and decided to give me an early birthday present and changed the release date accordingly

And help with piracy in America? IMO, worldwide releases should be the norm.

Well, it's his job after all. That said, he is a good casting choice, portrays the character well, and seems to have a lot of fun with the role.

Io9 provides a bunch of pics from the movie and production.

Just got back from seeing it.

I enjoyed it, but I was surprised to see one actor in it as I hadn't heard he was in it.

The cinema was fairly packed and there were a few laughs throughout the film

Yeah, I'm really surprised they don't just do worldwide simultaneous realeses for all of the big movies. It seems to be the best way to avoid both spoilers and piracy.

Yeah I'm glad they kept that quiet. Also liked the way it was shot, leaving the reveal to the last possible moment.

I heard the first negative things about the film today, one of the reviewers who writes for the film website I also write for backed out of reviewing it because he "had nothing for contempt for it and it bored me from start to finish." Which I thought was rather harsh.

^Some people are just like that. There was a reviewer for the Volcano in Tacoma whose review for the first Thor was more a rant about superhero movies in general and a complaint that his editor made him watch it in the first place. I never read anything he wrote ever again. Don't feed the trolls.

In other news, Thor: The Dark World has already topped one hundred million at the box office.

If you have been watching AMC movie talk, it seems that Thor's Jamie Alexander...has been talking to DC... and the insinuation is (they can't come out and say it, but the insinuation is definitely there) that she will be playing Wonder Woman in the Superman/ Batman debacle.

I only sporadically pay attention, but some critics have had it in for superhero films for years. They're eager to declare the death of the trend whenever the odd big-budget flop like Green Lantern comes along. I'm sure that The Avengers must have gotten them pretty frustrated....As long as there are crazy money success stories like that, studios will keep churning them out hoping for the next big one.

And sweet news about Thor 2's numbers before it's even hit the States!
