I was thinking about this and it looks like it takes place after the Avengers movie. At the end of the trailer Thor is asking Loki for help, and Loki is apparently in a jail cell of some kind. At the end of the first Thor movie, Loki was presumed dead.. but after Avengers Loki was taken back to Asgard as a prisoner. I still don't understand why they never explained how Thor got back to earth in Avengers. Maybe they will cover that plot hole in this movie.

Loki assumed to Thor that Odin and Heimdall used dark magics to get Thor back to Earth. He used it in a negative connotation so maybe this film deals with the repercussions of that.

Interesting, he could have been eluding to something bigger.. either that or he was disgusted that Thor was able to travel across worlds in the same fashion Loki was able to?

 

So, I checked on Marvel's site and found a brief description of the movie:

 

 

Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World," in theaters November 8, 2013, continues the big screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

And Malekith is a dark elf and has previously used the Casket of Ancient Winters in an Avengers cartoon episode:

I don't even care that the plot wasn't explained in the trailer.. this looks badass. :D

 

The plot revolves around a war with Dark Elves.

In other news Thor The Dark World has caused racial controversy between Dunmer & Nords (See Also Nordic Race) in Windhelm.

I couldn't tell those were Dark Elves based off the trailer. -_- It definitely looked like a large scale battle between two different species tho. :P

 

I hope this movie has no racial undertones to it. That would be horrible. :crap:

No spoiler tags for this but 2:10 was a major spoiler....

To a certain extent I wanted to root for The Dark Elves. Not because they were "evil" but from what they stated it seem like they were fighting an evil that destroyed their way of life; that being light.

 

I'm kind of disappointed that Odin states that they aren't Gods. Which leaves for me a feeling that the people that made this didn't want to offend religious nutters who want to declare only their god(s) are real.

 

Also stay after the credits.

I watched up until the 2:10 mark. Thank you for the warning. From what I did hear in the first couple minutes reaffirms what I heard about the movie being as much of a sequel to Avengers as well as a sequel to the first Thor. I'm looking forward to watching this. I also read that this season of Shield will have an episode in a couple weeks that takes place after the events of the second Thor movie. I just hope it doesn't have spoilers in it if I haven't seen this movie by then.

I was referring to trailer you posted previously not to Movie Bob's review just to clarify.

Just watched it, and it was loads of fun!  It does take place after Avengers, and there's some great action and great humor in there.

Actually, I thought it was better.  Maybe because they didn't have to spend time on origin story and could really get to the meat of it.  There was a bit of deus ex machina in places, but Christopher Eccleston as the main villian?  Swweeeet!

I watched this tonight and I enjoyed every minute of it. I think it was better than Thor 1. The first movie definitely felt more like the origin story that it was. Thor 2 was more of a good versus true evil battle.

 

The Collector was shown at the end.. very interesting. I'm thinking they are already laying the ground work for Avengers 3, which would most likely have Thanos trying to take over the universe. O_O

For me, Thor 1 > 2. What I liked in Thor 2 - aerial fight sequence in Asgard and a bit of Loki. What I didn't like in Thor 2 - for a catastrophic event in the end of THAT magnitude there was no other Superhero in sight (were they all dumb all of a sudden or asleep?) or SHIELD or anyone outside the small group of 3/4 people which made it unrealistic or not very believable and bad dialog when it came to humor.

I kept expecting some other super hero, shield or a larger British force to appear.. instead only a couple fighter jets showed up. Oh well. I suppose the fight was fast enough that non of the other super heroes from the US could have made it to Britain in that amount of time.

 

There were 2 things I didn't like in the movie.. The first was the mostly naked Thor scene. His ass checks were so muscular I could see his ass cleavage all the way up his lower back. ewww. :P and Jane Foster's makeup was so heavy that it was beyond noticeable. Everyone else's makeup was fine.. but Natalie Portman's foundation was like a layer of junk on her face. :\

      Thanks Spectrum/Time Warner for shutting off my services in the middle of the work day. fml. I scheduled the new account activation at my new house for this weekend and for the old account at the house I'm renting to terminate as of monday.. so what does Spectrum do? Shut my account down 1 day before the new account is activated and a full 4 days before it was scheduled to close. wtf. It took me 40 mins on the phone for them to reactivate my internet so I could finish working. wtf.

      With the summer simuldub season coming to a close, it played out like I predicted more or less. I'll wait a bit longer before I post my review. Pretty lackluster overall. But for me, the Fall Lineup is pretty stacked. Fairy Tail, SAO Season 3, and Black Clover continues which has become a lot more promising after this last arc I just watched... by far its strongest and most compelling. I watched the first episode of Double Decker! Doug & Kirill which was entertaining, and SSSS.GRIDMAN seems to be a Pacific Rim clone. Overall a return to more action adventure series, and lighter on the fan service heavy series.

      The last two chapters of One Punch Man have been the best action/fight scenes I've seen in a manga in years. Flashy Flash's fight was epic and focused on speed and technique. Huge props to the artist for how he drew a speed battle in manga form. Very impressive.

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.
