Two International TV Spots for THOR: THE DARK WORLD; Scarlett Johansson Talks CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Timeline

     October 1, 2013


We have some brief Marvel stuff for you this morning.  First up, there are a couple new international TV spots for Thor: The Dark World.  In the upcoming sequel, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) reluctantly teams up with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) to fight off the villainous dark elf Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston).  Watching these two TV spots, it may be time to change the title to “Loki & Thor: The Dark World”.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spots along with some comments on Captain America: The Winter Soldier from Scarlett JohanssonThor: The Dark World opens in 3D on November 8th.

Speaking with [via CS], Johansson says Winter Soldier will pick up two years after The Avengers, and Black Widow and Captain America have been “fighting in the streets” during that time.  She continues:

“We are not superheroes flying side by side. They help each other because we are fighting in a similar way. It’s a working relationship.”

Johansson explained that even though the characters are different—Steve Rogers the Soldier, and Black Widow the Spy—they become closer because of their similarities:

“By a series of unfortunate encounters, they will be in a situation in which their friendship becomes more intimate. They share many similarities because they live on the defensive without relying on anyone. Also, the two have been working for the government throughout their professional careers. With their friendship they begin to question what they want and what is their true identity.”

I’m running a little lukewarm on Thor: The Dark World at the moment, but I’m definitely excited for Captain America: The Winter Soldier because it looks likes this will be the only film of Phase Two other than The Avengers: Age of Ultron to keep the “unlikely team” dynamic going.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.
