Thor: The Dark World

Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor will be expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Thor: The Dark World. Christopher Eccleston has already been cast as film’s newest baddie, Malekith the Accursed, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will be there to support Eccleston. Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins will all return to reprise their respective roles.

Now the sequel is getting some new additions to the cast, and while you may not immediately recognize their names, you will recognize the roles they previously played.

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje To Star In Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World has been seeing the names on that casting sheet grow larger. Kat Dennings was recently brought back to reprise her role as Darcy, and now Lost actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is the latest name to be added to the cast of the sequel.

Be warned a few spoilers will follow, so if you want to go into the movie fresh, I suggest you ignore the following details.

Kat Dennings In Thor

Thor: The Dark World wouldn’t be as much fun of a sequel without Kat Dennings, who starred in Thor as a political science student who gets misplaced with the wrong internship and caught up in the battle of the cosmos along with Natalie Portman and Stellen Skarsgard. Her quick wit and sarcasm provided some great humor for the movie and now she is officially signed on to appear in the sequel, which is expected to start shooting this fall.

As to the reason why it might have taken so long to get her signed on, well, it’s because of her commitment to the hit CBS comedy, Two Broke Girls. According to Deadline, all of that has been worked out. She even gets an expanded role in the sequel, which means she could do more than just mispronounce Mjolnir on multiple occasions. She certainly deserves to do more than just spew out a few witty one-liners. So we’ll see what she can do when the time comes.

Alice Krige To Have Mysterious Role In ‘Thor: The Dark World’

Alice Krige Plays A Mysterious Role In Thor: The Dark World

To think that we are getting two movies from Marvel Studios again next year, and maybe three the year after, gives me the slight tingles. Iron Man 3 is on its way to completing its production, while Thor: The Dark World is scheduled to shoot sometime next month. The film has already cast Christopher Eccleston as Malekith The Accursed, the film’s primary villain. Now it’s time for director Alan Taylor to turn his attention to the supporting cast, and he is starting off in a pretty big way.

In what is sure to excite some Star Trek fans, Alice Krige has signed on for a mysterious role in Thor: The Dark World. The actress confirmed that she has a role in the film at the Star Trek convention this weekend in Las Vegas, but stopped short of saying who she would be playing. However, she did mention that her role would be relatively small and that she’d be wearing a fair amount of makeup that would make her unrecognizable to some. So it’s probably safe to say that she won’t be playing a human or any of the deities in Asgard.

Could Malekith The Accursed Be The Villain In ‘Thor: The Dark World’?

Malekith the Accursed

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige promised us that the villain in Thor: The Dark World would be big. It wasn’t clear if he meant physically big or just big in terms of recognition, but the rumor that is going around tells us that it is the latter (and/or former depending on how you perceive the character), and that it would have fit into Mads Mikkelsen’s physique, had he stayed on to play the villain.

According to an interview with stuntman James Grogan, we could be seeing elves in Thor: The Dark World. And, though just speculation, that could mean we’ll be seeing Malekith the Accursed as the villain.

Mads Mikkelsen Header

With Thor 2 scheduled to begin filming later this year, the cast and crew are getting ready for another go around in Asgard and on Midgard.

Unfortunately audiences won’t be seeing an exciting villain prospect. Sources have confirmed that Mads Mikkelsen, once thought to be joining Thor 2 as an antagonist, will now not be playing as the villain of the film. Due to his commitment to the new Silence of the Lambs TV series on NBC, Mikkelsen had to pull himself out of the project.

Game of Thrones Review

Game of Thrones
Season Two, Episode 10 – Valar Morghulis
Directed by Alan Taylor
Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss
Starring Mark Addy, Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Liam Cunningham, Charles Dance, Stephen Dillane, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Aidan Gillen, Jack Gleeson, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Conleth Hill, Carice van Houten, Harry Lloyd, Richard Madden, Patrick Malahide, Rory McCann, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maisie Williams, and Issac Hempstead-Wright

When I reviewed the Season 1 finale of Game of Thrones, I felt that episode played more like the first episode of the second season, more than it felt like a closer. There were too many hanging plots, with few elements drawing to a close. In retrospect, part of that feeling may have come from the fact that I truly felt that Ned Starks’ death would have been an amazing way to end the season, but I understand wanting to provide some sense of finality to that first season and Ned’s death would not have been the way to accomplish that goal.

After “Blackwater” last week, I was concerned that the show might pull the same trick twice (considering the ending structure for both Season 1 and Season 2 played out in a similar fashion – huge, event, water-cooler worthy penultimate episode, followed by a slower, picking up the pieces episode to close out the season). However, I was glad to see the show draw some of the various plots to pause, rather than an end.

New Release Dates For ‘The Lone Ranger’ & ‘Thor 2’ Announced

BAADASSSSS!   |

The Lone Ranger

Two of next year’s most anticipated blockbusters are getting their release dates shifted. Gore Verbinski‘s big screen adaptation of The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer has moved from May 31st to July 3rd, pitting it against Despicable Me 2 and 20th Century Fox’s 3D re-release of Independence Day. Meanwhile, the Marvel Studios sequel Thor 2 being directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) will now open on November 8th instead of November 15th, giving it a much-needed two-week head start before the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The Thor 2 release date move is a canny one as it will need all the time it can get before Catching Fire is released. While there’s no doubt that the original Thor was a successful film and has seen its following grow substantially in the wake of The Avengers, the first Hunger Games has the greatest appeal to younger moviegoers, particularly since both movies will be competing for those all-important holiday season dollars.

Game of Thrones Review for 5.21

Game of Thrones
Season Two, Episode 8 – A Prince of Winterfell
Directed by Alan Taylor
Written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss
Starring Mark Addy, Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Liam Cunningham, Charles Dance, Stephen Dillane, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Aidan Gillen, Jack Gleeson, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Conleth Hill, Carice van Houten, Harry Lloyd, Richard Madden, Patrick Malahide, Rory McCann, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maisie Williams, and Issac Hempstead-Wright

I wasn’t blown away by Game of Thrones Episode 8, “A Prince of Winterfell.” That’s not to say there weren’t individual moments throughout the episode I enjoyed, but I felt it was lacking as a whole. My major quarrel with the series has been that it spends a lot of time setting up plots to pay off later on down the line and after several weeks of payoff, we had another setup episode.

I get what the show’s trying to do. There’s been a warning throughout the course of the season that something major was coming and most of this week is building up towards this major event.

Game of Thrones: The Night Lands Review

Game of Thrones
Season Two, Episode 2 – The Night Lands
Directed by: Alan Taylor
Written by: David Benioff and D.B. Weiss
Starring: Mark Addy, Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Liam Cunningham, Charles Dance, Stephen Dillane, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Aidan Gillen, Jack Gleeson, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Conleth Hill, Carice van Houten, Harry Lloyd, Richard Madden, Patrick Malahide, Rory McCann, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Maisie Williams, and Issac Hempstead-Wright.

Game of Thrones continues some world building in order to set the stage for what’s to come in the week’s ahead, but how does it compare to last week’s outstanding season two premiere? Found out after the break.

One of the things that Game of Thrones does so well is the ability to handle multiple plots without wasting a single character or moment in order to accomplish great storytelling that gets me engaged in each character introduced. I think a lesser show wouldn’t be able to handle the amount of juggling that’s needed for this series, and that’s why the show has been a master class in character development. Each character featured throughout the episode has at least one, if not more, important moment that not only reinforces, but advances their plot and their character.
