That Loki, eh? Tries to usurp his half-brother’s prized position within their family, sends a dangerous weapon to Earth, gets banished, comes back, attempts to invade Earth with an alien army, is smacked around a lot, stopped and imprisoned. So how does the marketing team behind Thor: The Dark World reward this torrent of bad behaviour? By giving him his own featurette, of course. What sort of lesson is that?
Yes, if you haven’t quite had your fill of trailer shots and behind-the-scenes snippets from the new Thor outing, this should fit the bill nicely, featuring leading men Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston (plus director Alan Taylor) talk up how Thor will have to risk everything to fight a dark new enemy by teaming up with the one person he really, truly shouldn’t be trusting to behave.
It’s not long now until The Dark World – which also features Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Christopher Eccleston, Zachary Levi, Ray Stevenson, Jaimie Alexander and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje – lands, with the release date set for October 30.
