  1. I’m alabout enjoying a good ol’ Thor throwdown! But as God is my witness…if Amora (enchantress) doesn’t at least get a cameo I will be MAD and dissapointed!

    Amora is the perfect love interest/rival for Jane. And she and Thor have had a few …mmm…times…of their own!

  2. Can’t wait to see this movie! If the Dark Elves aren’t the main villains my guess is it could be Surtur, Hela, or maybe the director wants everyone to think too much into it and it is just the Dark Elves. But either way it doesn’t matter just judging by the previews this looks epic!

  3. Thor is a marvel’s superman. Should be more better than the first worst sequel.

  4. Watch the Speedart for this movie :)
