Chris Hemsworth returns as the mighty Thor in the last Marvel film of the year 'Thor: The Dark World'. In September I was able to see Chris in the racing-drama film 'Rush', that movie just like this movie shows how great of an actor Hemsworth really is. The thing that makes him good is his mix of a sense of humor and a very serious side, he really pulls you into the scenes. My favorite part of this movie is how well Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston play off each other as Thor and Loki. You can't help but laugh with these two on the screen because of their one-liners.
Tom Hiddleston as Loki always looks like he is up to something, which is perfect for the role.
Chris Hemsworth really does play the might Thor well. Take a look at comic book drawing of Thor from the older books, Chris really fits the part.
Now Jaimie Alexander returns as Lady Sif, along side Ray Stevenson and Tadanobu Asano as Volstagg and Hogun, but they are joined by a new face under an old name. Fandral who was played by Josh Dallas in the 2011 film is now played by 'Chuck' star Zachary Levi, I have to say he is a great addition to the team. The whole cast brings this film to life, making it the best out of the two Thor films.
Zachary Levi as Fandral. As you can see he truly looks the role.
'2 Broke Girls' star Kat Dennings plays the Jane's funny intern Darcy, I think her role is a stronger piece of this film than the first.
The Dark Elves are the villain of this story. I like how they still made Loki a part of the story, but didn't repeat him as the 'villain' of the film yet.
Natalie Portman returns as Jane Foster. It was great seeing her return, since she was not in the Avengers film.
Odin returns! Anthony Hopkins is one of my favorite actors ever. I really like how he plays Odin in these films, he works well with both Tom and Chris.
You know what I love about Marvel movies? Every time they make a new one, the special effects get better. Fight scenes really show off the effects in this film as you will see when watching. The other great part about Marvel films? Post-Credit scenes!! There are two in this film, one after the graphic credits and one after the rolling credits. SO MAKE SURE YOU STAY TIL THE VERY END!!! They are both worth it! You should also watch for easter eggs as always! This film is well worth seeing.
Once again, every movie is making me want to see the upcoming 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' more and more!! The next Marvel 'Avengers' film is the 2014 'Captain America: The Winter Solider' starring Chris Evans.
Who else can't wait for Steve Rogers to return?
