Thor: The Dark World 'embraces' humour

Oct 21 2013, 10:24am CDT | by Bang Movies

'Thor: The Dark World' has a balance of humour and drama.

The new comic book movie - which sees Chris Hemsworth reprise his role as the titular superhero - will feature many funny scenes, and director Alan Taylor admits he felt he had to up the ante following the comical scenes in 2012's 'The Avengers' and 'Iron Man 3' earlier this year.

He explained: ''I felt my first task was to darken the world, and deepen it, and dirty it up a bit. And then as we got into the process, I thought, if we're going to darken it, deepen it and possibly kill off characters we love, we better be darn sure there's balance on the other side.

'''The Avengers' came out while we were starting it and 'Iron Man 3' came out while we were finishing it, so you were screwed if you don't also keep it funny and light on its feet. It's called 'The Dark World', but humour was critical on it.''

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was also pleased with the humour in the flick and feels it is imperative in grounding the film for the audience.

He added to BANG Showbiz: ''Humour is definitely the key. We've got spaceships in this movie and other planets in this movie, and we've found that humour is an amazing way to get the audience to just embrace and accept all those worlds, all that craziness and costumes. It's worked for us going all the way back to the first 'Iron Man' film.''

'Thor: The Dark World' is out in the UK on October 30.

Idris Elba either has confidence that he can say what he wants at this point in his career, and we think he does.

Nov 3 2014 8:00am CST | Source: Slash Film

Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to be big. Very big. Even the first teaser trailer hints at things we weren’t quite sure we’d see in a Marvel movie. Captain America’s shield broken, Steve Rogers somehow in the past, Iron Man fighting The Hulk, Black Panther references, etc. And, of course, some of that stuff can be explained when you look at the Phase 3 plans. Others can’t though and now a few more seemingly inexplicable, but awesome, news has bee ...

From the sounds of Joss Whedon's comments earlier this year, there's a very real chance that we're going to see an Avenger meet their maker (or, in the case of Thor, his dad, presumably) in Avengers: Age of Ultron.After all, Whedon revealed that his core philosophy for the movie would be “Death, death and death.” Which, no matter how you spin it, is going to be a bumpy, emotional ride - and the internet responded accordingly, with persistent rumors ever sinc ...
