Looking for some big spoiler plot details for Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3? If not, I wouldn't read ahead if I were you. If you are, then by all means enjoy the spoilers! I did.
The following details come from actor and Marvel Employee Andrew Lawden, who showed up on the Bombad Radio Podcast and ended up dropping some very fun, spoilerish information on the two movies.
Let's start off with Thor: The Dark World, because these are all new details...
Thor becomes reunited with Jane who becomes possessed by a Dark Spirit, which is connected with the Dark Elves; a race the Asgardians have fallen out with many years beforehand [...] The Dark Elves attack Asgard, and they take a huge hit. So Thor has to rebuild Asgard by putting together an army to go and take the battle to the Dark Elves and defeat them. But the only way he can do this is – he needs to cross over to the Dark World, and the only person who has access to the dark side of Asgard is his old brother Loki, who at the beginning of the film is locked up in prison.
So what happens is Thor basically has to negotiate this truce with Loki, and he goes on this great trek with Jane, all three of them. They go to this far side of Asgard, which is being shot in Iceland, where they train and assemble an army to go and attack the Dark Elves’ world.
Sounds pretty awesome, right? I like that Thor and Loki will actually be fighting side by side in this one, and not against each other. Now do you want an even bigger SPOILER? if so keep reading...
But the exclusive twist…is that one of the things that happens during the Asgardian attack is that Thor’s mother gets killed. So it becomes like a vengeance thing. And they were keeping very tight-lipped about what actually happens with Loki, you don’t know whether he redeems himself or he’s still the bad egg.
I hope he redems himself, that would actually be very cool.
Now on to some Iron Man 3 greatness! We've actually posted this Spoiler before but seeing it again from a different source basically confirms that it's going to happen, and I can't freakin' wait!
Well, there’s going to be a big fight sequence with The Mandarin, who’s the main villain, which will involve none other than forty different iron man suits. There’s an amazing rescue where The Mandarin basically wants to bring down the American government and kill the President, and he launches an attack on Air Force One. All of them – the President and his men and staff – get sucked out of the plane, and Iron Man rescues them by forming this amazing human chain in the sky.
There’s some pretty spectacular stuff that goes on. There’s an amazing sequence where he has this rooftop house that he builds to store all his Iron Man suits, and it gets attacked by The Mandarin and these gunships [...] I was shocked to discover there are like forty Iron Man suits written into this feature in various ways…so that’s going to be pretty impressive. But apparently he needs this Iron Man army to go up against The Mandarin’s forces.
Marvel is doing some awesome stuff with their films, and I'm excited for all the movies that have been announced, and all of the movies that have yet to be announced. The studio has proven that they can and will give us the Marvel movies we want to see, and that they will do them right.
Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3rd, 2013, while Thor: The Dark World arrives on November 8th, 2013.
