I’m sure I don’t have to remind you that in the Marvel Movieverse, magic can be explained by science, it just that it hasn’t been, yet. They’ll call Thor a god, for sure, but also frame him as an alien.
As such, I shouldn’t be surprised to see a scene from The Dark World that feels like this one. It’s almost Prometheus-y. In a good way.
Thor: The Dark World opens in the UK on October 30th. That’s also when it opens in the IMAX format around the world, and then the full US release follows on November 8th.
