Marvel's Thor: The Dark World movie arrives in theaters on November 8, and along with, Gameloft's official mobile video game version. Wanna smash things with crazy combos and exaggerated animated Mjolnir attacks? Does strutting around Jotunheim, Asgard and other realms with all kinds of allies to pop evil Dark Elves and their ilk upside the noggin sound legit? Judging form the game's new second trailer, it looks like fans will be able to do all of that and more on "smartphones and tablets" (sugguesting not just an iOS, but potentially an Android release) in the coming months. You can see the second trailer, plus several new screen shots from Gameloft's upcoming Thor: The Dark World The Official Game, after the jump.
Maybe I've been on Tumblr too long, but considering Joss Whedon and other Marvel bigwigs' remarks about the probable lack of Loki in future Marvel movies, I think it may have been a mistake not to call Thor: The Dark World "Thor 2: Look at Tom Hiddleston While you Can, Screaming Fans." That's not a diss. I genuinely worry about how many hearts might break from a lack of fresh Loki supply following The Dark World's November 8 release. Funko's got at least a little bit of a solution, though, with its upcoming rollout of Pop! Vinyl figures based on Thor, Loki and an armored Dark Elf.
And when it comes to the Asgard of Marvel's Cinematic Universe fans want Tom Hiddleston's Loki. Perhaps as a salve to fans begrudged by the news that Hiddleston won't be appearing in Joss Whedon's Avengers: The Age of Ultron, director Alan Taylor is shooting additional scenes for Thor: The Dark Worldprominently featuring everyone's favorite trickster god.
Debuting as part of YouTube's "Geek Week," Marvel Studios has unveiled a brand new trailer for Thor: The Dark World. Focusing largely on Loki and Jane Foster, and featuring Heimdall and Malekith, it's a collection of much of the footage shown at the Marvel Studios' Comic-Con panel last month. But if you weren't at the panel (and most of us, obviously, were not) this is all new to you, as the trailer shows Dr. Foster interacting with Norse Gods -- including a confrontation with Loki, the guy who kind of wrecked New York City -- and Thor attempting to form an uneasy partnership with his brother. It's about two and a half minutes of new footage, and about two and a half more inches of hair on seemingly every character, and you can check it out below.
