Thor: The Dark World round-up

News Simon Brew 4 Jul 2013 - 06:28

Just a quick collection of the latest stories surrounding Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, starring Chris Hemsworth...

The next Marvel movie to head to cinemas, Thor: The Dark World, has had a little bit of a bumpy time if you believe some of the rumours doing the rounds. There have been unconfirmed reports of director Alan Taylor and Marvel clashing over the length of the movie's final cut, with reportedly the former favouring a much longer film that than the studio.

We've no fresh light to shine on that, but we do have a round-up of Thor news from the past week or two.

Firstly, the man originally set to score Thor: The Dark World, Carter Burwell, has left the project. In his place, it's now been confirmed that Brian Tyler is on scoring duties. Tyler scored Iron Man 3 really rather well, you may recall. We love that Marvel is committed to good, bold scores for its films too, and look forward to hearing what Tyler comes up with this time.

Next? Marvel has confirmed, although it's not a massive surprise, that it's going to take both Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier to Comic-Con this year. Expect footage from both to be screened. Don't be surprised if a trailer to at least one of them surfaces, too.

And then, a new image for the film has appeared, with Rene Russo looking suitably stern...

The film is still scheduled for release in the UK first, on 30th October 2013. The US release will follow on 8th November.
