THOR: THE DARK WORLD Roundup: New International Spot, Chris O’Dowd’s Role Revealed And More


thor bannerWe’re about 4 weeks away from the premiere of Thor: The Dark World. As we’ve inched closer and closer to the November 8th release we’ve gotten several teasers, trailers, character posters, and promotional images. That trend continues today in a plethora of new Thor material that has hit the web. We’ve rounded it up into one convenient location for your reading pleasure. We’ve got a new international trailer, news on Chris O’Dowd‘s mysterious role, and new some new posters and images.

A brand new international spot for the highly anticipated sequel has been released by Marvel. The spot is in English with a Spanish voice over. There are a few new snippets of footage and dialogue that really play up the brotherly bonds between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston).

Empire posted a few pictures of Chris O’Dowd‘s scene with Natalie Portman. O’Dowd has remained very quiet about his role, leading many to believe that he would be playing a big comic book character. Some people had money on O’Dowd playing Donald Blake. It has been revealed that O’Dowd‘s cameo will just be a brief comedic date scene between Jane Foster and a man named Richard. All that fuss and it looks to be a small scene. Unless they’re lying about who Richard really is?! *I don’t think they are*





Finally, three new promotional images have found their way on the web. First is a scan from the Thor calendar for May. The image (via @_NerdyGeek_) shows a few new snaps of Loki, Thor, Malekith, Jane, Sif,and even Odin. Marvel‘s Twitter account made the first Thor poster into a wallpaper. The image, which we’ve seen a million times, has been stretched out and made into something you can decorate your desktop with. Finally, the same poster got the LEGO treatment to promote the upcoming LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game. What do you think about the latest batch of Thor news?
