In the meantime he’s been busy doing Norse God things – slaying giant ogres, that kind of stuff. Till one day Jane’s pal Darcy (Kat Jennings) alerts her to strange metaphysical happenings in a deserted London warehouse. One flash of thunder later and Thor falls through a gap in the cosmos and back into the arms of both Jane and the UK police. But much as the Met would like to detain him at Her Majesty’s Pleasure, Thor has bigger plans, like taking Jane back to Asgard to meet his mum.

Which would be unpleasant enough in itself but, to make matters worse, Malkeith (Christopher Ecclestone), leader of the Dark Elves and an ancient enemy of Asgard, has plans to turn the Aether into a deadly weapon capable of destroying all nine realms. Not a good day to be Jane, then.

As in the first Thor, the trademark fish-out-of-water humour is present and correct with our favourite Norse God flitting rapidly between the grand realms of Asgard and, erm, the Jubilee Line. Add in some new villains to hiss at, including a rather fabulous creation resembling the love child of a Samurai warrior and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, plus 3D action sequences of as many realms as you care to shake a stick at being destroyed and Thor does all it promises on the action blockbuster tin. Now where did we put that Mallet’s Mallet?
(2013) or Download Thor 2 Movie Now. Thor was a gem. I’d argue it remains the best of the Marvel Studios films, expertly and enthusiastically embracing the heightened melodrama of comic book storytelling and boiling it down to faux Shakespearean elegance. With Kenneth Branagh directing and a fantastic cast, the film hit on a lot of the old-fashioned comic book spectacle. Yes, it was sheer nonsense, but there’s something surprisingly affecting about hearing Anthony Hopkins intone Stan Lee’s decidedly corny dialogue. This is sheer unadulterated pop, filtered down and distilled.

A lot of that carries over to Thor: The Dark World. “Some believe that before the universe, there was nothing,” Hopkins’ Odin assured us in the trailer, in a narration omitted from the film. “They’re wrong. There was darkness…” Sure, physicists and scientist might weep at the suggestion, but Hopkins is able to imbue the ridiculous line with a surreal gravitas. “I like the way you explain things,” Jane tells Thor at one point, and the British accents lend the goofiness a strangely convincing air.

Instead, The Dark World is strongest when it embraces the broad sweeping archetypal appeal of these sorts of stories. Brothers betraying brothers. Family feuds with the entire universe at stake. Giant magical rock monsters. Ominous and portentous dialogue. Beautiful scenery. Grown men in silly outfits acting as if the end of the world is about to unfold, but there’s still time to strike a dramatic pose.

Malekith’s space ship looks like a giant Sword of Damocles, dangling right over Asgard and Greenwich, ready to fall. Investigating strange goings on, Jane and D’Arcy and Ian the Intern find themselves at a make-shift Stonehenge assembled using cargo containers. These touches are inspired and eye-catching, even if the script itself might have benefited from that sort of ingenious design.

The project originally hired Patty Jenkins to direct, which would have made her the first woman to direct a Marvel Studios film. Unfortunately, Jenkins and Marvel couldn’t quite agree on the direction of the project, prompting them to part ways – although the two reported remained amicable, even if it was suggested some other members of the production were less than thrilled.

Unlike most of the other Marvel movie directors, Taylor doesn’t have a lot of experience in film – he didn’t approach the project with the experience of Kenneth Branagh or Jon Favreau or even Joss Whedon. Instead, Taylor has a wealth of television experience. The most relevant would seem to be his work on Game of Thrones, which is arguably somewhat similar to the tone you’d expect from a Thor film, albeit with less nudity and graphic violence.

Marvel Studios have a reputation of being quite tough to work with. Writer and star Ed Norton found himself kicked to the curb when he refused to throw himself entirely behind the studio’s mandated cut of The Incredible Hulk, despite the fact that the scenes cut suggest a far stronger film at the heart of that movie. Similarly, Jon Favreau was reportedly struggling with the studio over the final cut of Iron Man 2.

It’s worth noting that the two movies with the aforementioned personality conflicts are generally considered the weakest of the Marvel Studios films, although I think that there are bits of vision that shine through. It’s not a nice way to do business, and it suggests a reason that so many of the Marvel films feel rather hemmed in. It’s hard to imagine that Christopher Nolan could have made The Dark Knight while working under those sort of studio-mandated restrictions.

It often works better as a collection of scenes than it does as a film. Like Star Trek: Into Darkness and Man of Steel before it this summer, and The Avengers last summer, The Dark World features a fairly overt cinematic take on the iconography of September 11th. However, while those movies waited until the third act to delve into that imagery, The Dark World barely waits a half-an-hour before we get suicidal attacks and planes crashing into towers.
