Having laid the groundwork and told the back story of its weird and wonderful characters in Phase One, Marvel is set to broaden its horizons in Phase Two, by exploring the outer limits of the comic-book universe…
When it comes to Marvel, Phase Two is the hot topic of the moment, and nothing is hotter than how Thanos will fit into the picture.
Having made his big bow in the final moments of The Avengers, the intergalactic baddie is set to play a big part in Marvel’s next stage, and head honcho Kevin Feige has taken the time to explain how he might fit in…
Given the box-office success of the first film, and the universal adoration with which it was met among fans, you would think signing on for The Avengers 2 would have been a no-brainer for director Joss Whedon…

It’s been a big day for Marvel baddie news, with the announcement that Mads Mikkelsen will be joining Tom Hiddleston’s Loki as a Thor 2 baddie…
Now that The Avengers has been unleashed on the viewing public and production is getting underway on the next component of the Marvel movie universe, Iron Man 3, fans can begin shifting their attention over to the various components being brought together and/or reuniting for Thor 2.
In the meantime, we can bring you up to speed on Chris Hemsworth’s thoughts about the Thor sequel – including the state of the Norse God’s relationship with his sibling Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in the aftermath of what went down in The Avengers – and how Thor 2 will differ tonally from its predecessor, now that Taylor (Game of Thrones) is in charge.
Here’s Hemsworth talking to MTV about the Thor-Loki dynamic:
“It’s what I loved about the comics. It was never clean and cut and that’s it. It was always like, Thor would forgive him, they’d be friends, and Loki would betray him again. ‘You idiot, Thor! Again?’ But it was different than your normal good guy, bad guy scenario. They’re brothers, you know? Anyone with siblings understands that. ‘That’s it, I’m never talking to you again… want to play football?’”
Hiddleston has already confirmed that Thor 2 will see his Asgardian counterpart deal with the consequences of his dastardly deeds in The Avengers. As to the exact nature of Loki’s redemption: Hemsworth is keeping quiet (as naturally he would):
“He’s got to apologize, doesn’t he? Baked goods. Muffins or something. That would be a bribe we could start with. Beyond that, I don’t know.”
Back in April, Hemsworth also expressed his excitement about having Taylor as director on Thor 2:
“Ken [Branagh] did such a wonderful job and, with scheduling or what have you, he didn’t end up doing this one, but I’m a big fan of the GAME OF THRONES series, which is Alan’s latest work, and I think that is what’s exciting about the second one: making it sort of more tangible and having a more organic feel to Asgard and that world. I think the science fiction element to THOR… the danger is it falls a little bit into the world of it’s “tough to throw a light to.” I think of big waterfalls and mountains and a Viking influence, where the Norse mythology kind of grew from. Having that in Asgard is going to make it all the more special and that’s what Alan wants to bring to it. I think that would be the new aspect to this one.”
Avengers‘ mid-credits scene alluded to Marvel’s plans to branch out further into the realm of cosmic comic book adaptations, while also crafting more adventures based in (sorta) realistic science fiction world (Iron Man 3, Captain America 2). If the fantastical proceedings in Thor 2 are grounded with more relatable material – such as brotherly conflicts and tangible worldly designs, that would help the two branches of the Marvel movie universe to better mesh together and eventually converge (possibly, in Avengers 2).
