'Thor: The Dark World' Easter Eggs, Trivia & References

Thor 2 Dark World Odin Raven Easter Egg

One element of The Dark World that director Alan Taylor was keen on emphasizing was its connection to Viking heritage, meaning viewers got the chance to actually see Odin (Anthony Hopkins) overseeing his training armies, not confined to a throne room.

It is in Odin's first appearance that we see him taking an aside with one of his ravens, but fans will quickly tell you that they are not merely birds. Known as Huginn and Muninn, the pair of ravens flew throughout the Nine Realms to gather information for their king and reported back.

They were relegated to mere perches on Odin's throne in the first Thor, and present during the fight between Thor and Loki in The Avengers, so fans were treated to an even more prominent cameo in the sequel.
