Re: THOR: THE DARK WORLD - Grading & Discussion

Well I gave it an "A", the movie IMO was better than the first Thor movie and Iron Man 3, I liked how it was combination of Star Wars and Lord Of The Rings. It'd be a shame if this is the end of Hopkins as Odin but I guess time will tell. Eric's naked romp at Stonehedge was a bit much though.

Re: THOR: THE DARK WORLD - Grading & Discussion

Don't believe this has been mentioned yet, and I'm surprised. In the mid-credits scene, the center piece of the Collector's show room was the Adam Warlock cocoon:

http://www.supermegamonkey.net/chron...emiere_1.shtml

Warlock is a one of a kind being who is probably best known as the person who usually defeats Thanos.

I'm also fascinated by this Infinity stone idea. I agree that the tesseract probably is the space gem; and that brings an interesting thought to all those people who were disintegrated by it's energy in World War II (is it possible they were just teleported?).

As for the aether:

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aethe...ssical_element)

I think it would most closely match to the power gem idea. But the way that Malkeith used it to darken the universe could also be interpreted as time manipulation or possibly even reality.

Feige has revealed the Aether to be the space gem.

Source?

ETA: I think the quote was taken a bit out of context. The quote that google says showed up four days ago is incomplete. A more complete one was posted today:

CO: Are you saying that the Tesseract is one of the Infinity Gems, and has been all along?

KF: Yes.

CO: Which one would it be? Would it be the Space Gem or the Power Gem, or is it not that codified in the cinematic universe?

KF: It is. I don’t know when we’ll actually divulge that necessarily, but it’s the space stone.
I can see the confusion because an earlier quote said:

While the sequence, directed by Guardians of the Galaxy helmer James Gunn, reveals that both the Tesseract and the Aether are Infinity Gems, it has not explained until now exactly which one is which.

"I don’t know when we’ll actually divulge that necessarily," says Feige, "but it’s the Space stone."

I edited my post. It was a badly garbled quote. The Tesseract is the Space Stone. The Aether's status has not been revealed.

Re: THOR: THE DARK WORLD - Grading & Discussion

I found this interesting theory from a year ago. It misses on a few things (thinking the Mandarin has one of the gems). It's most interesting because it happened at a time when everyone assumed the Tesseract was the Cosmic Cube (while acknowledging that it didn't really behave like one). It emphasized the portal-creation aspect of the Tesseract fit well with it being the Space Gem. While I don't think it necessarily has to mirror the comics exactly, that's a good support for it always being thought of as the Space Gem (although I also get the impression that this was a concept created more at the time of Avengers and might not have been created until Thor 2).

Anyway, it's an interesting aside. If I were the author, I would be gloating.

Found this thread on another forum that also gives a screen cap from the mid credits scene:

One more thought - wasn't it stated or shown at the start of Avengers that Thanos powered up Loki's staff? Given it's mind control powers; it could show that Thanos already has the mind stone.

Re: THOR: THE DARK WORLD - Grading & Discussion

I was wondering if that (the cocoon) was anything significant when I saw the movie this morning.
As for the movie itself, I really enjoyed it. A solid A for me.
A few random thoughts:
I loved that they went for even more of a sci-fi/fantasy vibe this time.
Frigga was awesome, I'm sad they killed her off. I was disappointed that we didn't get to see more of her in the first movie, so I liked see her play a bigger role here.
I do wish we could have gotten more with Sif and the Warriors Three, but what we did get was great, so I'm not to sad. I do wonder if Jaime Alexander's injury effected how big of a role she played. It seemed like they were setting up more of a love triangle, but it was dropped once Jane showed up.
As a big IT Crowd fan, I was thrilled to see Chris O'Dowd.
Loki was great of course.
I do agree with a lot of the reviews saying that Malekith was kind of a disappointment. He was just kind of there.
I got a kick out of the both post-credits scenes. I was already familiar with the Infinity Gauntlet due to some earlier internet research before the movies started, so that got me pretty excited. I wonder if they'll tie all of that up in with GoTG or if they'll do a big IG story for Avengers 3. I'm thinking it's probably the later, but obviously that could change after we actually get to see Guardians.

its stated in avengers that the staff is powered by the tesseract. so its powers come from the space gem. but dammit, thank you for the bit on the cocoon. I had heard there was another cameo in this scene but man I surely missed this one. it has been rumored that warlock will appear in guardians so fingers crossed. I mean how else are would they plan on taking down thanos, especially thanos with the infinity gauntlet? Adam Warlock or bust!

I don't know if anyone here has read the prequel comic to TDW but I guess in it Thor and Heimdall rebuilt the Bifrost using the Tesseract.
