The dust from the box-office explosion The Avengers created has barely cleared the air and news and info on Marvel’s “Phase 2″ is in full action. With sequels to Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor, along with new properties like Guardians of the Galaxy heading our way, it should come as no surprise if Marvel continues to rule Hollywood and audiences for the next couple of years. Although I was a huge fan of The Avengers, Thor’s solo film without the rest of his heroic team left me empty and bored to say the least (you can read my original review of Thor HERE). That’s not to say that I’m not excited though about the sequel. With Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, The Sopranos) handling the direction this time around, I’m hoping his take on the material falls more in line with the wonderful handling he has done with Game of Thrones. One of my biggest complaints with the first film is that three out of the four action sequences were darkly lit, and the fact that they were poorly edited together made them all the harder to follow. In a new behind the scenes video from the sequel, Thor: The Dark World, we see – in broad daylight no less – Chris Hemsworth and others battling to the death in an epic action sequence. The heroes of Asgard are currently filming in England right now. Check out the video below.
Thor: The Dark World will be released on November 8, 2013.
