Ask Chris #183: Thor And The Casket of Ancient Winters

Ask Chris art by Erica Henderson

Q: Since you hate Frozen so much and are stuck in an ice storm, what are some good stories about snow and ice? -- @prograpslady

A: Those harsh words I had for Frozen are going to follow me to my grave, aren't they? Listen, I'm glad you like your little movie about ice puns and slapstick snowmen and I would never take that enjoyment away from you. I just like things that are, you know, good. It's not necessarily that you're wrong, it's just that I have more sophisticated and refined tastes, which is why I like the finer things that cinema has to offer. Like, say, any movie that prominently features a dirtbike or karate.

Anyway, it's true: As I write this, I'm bundled up in a Batman snuggie (the blanket with sleeves and a utility belt) with snow on the ground and ice on the roads. This, of course, is pretty unusual for my home state of South Carolina, so I've been thinking all day about stories where a bitter winter plays a central part -- and really, there's one that stands out right at the top of the list. From Walter Simonson's Thor, the story of Malekith and the Casket of Ancient Winters.

‘Thor: The Dark World’ Is A Good Time At The Movies (Most Of The Time) [Review]

Thor 2

If you boiled down Marvel's movies to a basic formula, the first Thor film would be a perfect example of it. It's got some decent superhero action, a lot of shoehorned-in S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff, and one huge feather in its cap: A sense of humor about itself and its characters.

Luckily, the new sequel, Thor: The Dark World, is like its predecessor in that it's not afraid to include some levity. As long as that keeps up, it's a jaunty, enjoyable flick. It's only when the movie gets capital-s Serious -- and luckily that's not too often -- that it gets into some trouble.

New ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Trailer Features More Loki, Malekith, Face Punching [Video]

Thor and Loki

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.
