THOR: THE DARK WORLD is the eagerly anticipated sequel to the very successful superhero movie, THOR, based on the Marvel comics of the same name. While the superhero is what draws fans in to see the movie, it’s the villain that creates all the drama and makes the film worth watching.
A Hollywood stuntman might have accidentally revealed which baddie will be making life difficult for our Norse hero. He talked about working with the director on the sequel and said that he and his crew were asking to walk around like elves.
Elves…THOR…that can only mean one thing! Fans have taken this hint to mean that Thor will have to face Malekith the Accursed and his army of dark elves of Svartalfheim. According to the comic books, these pesky little creatures are very intelligent, have quick reflexes and are extremely fast and strong…come to think of it, they sort of sound like TWILIGHT vampires…minus the inhuman beauty and blood drinking, that is! Conveniently for Thor and his hammer, their only weakness is iron.
This sounds plausible. After all, the title is THOR: THE DARK WORLD, so having dark elves would be appropriate. The movie, starring Chris Hemsworth in the title role, is set to premiere on November 8th, 2013. Then, we shall see if fan predictions were right!
