Thor: The Dark World trivia picture

Trivia: Stan Lee makes his usual cameo, this time as a patient at the asylum where Selvig is being held.


Trivia: According to Norse mythology, Loki was to be eternally bound far below Asgard by Odin, as punishment for betraying/killing Odin's other beloved son Balder. Loki's eternal imprisonment for betraying Thor reflects this tale.


Trivia: In the film a raven lands on Odin's arm. In Norse Mythology Odin has two ravens that fly through the realms and deliver information to him, they are called Huginn and Muninn.

Trivia: Director Alan Taylor has stated that he wasn't completely pleased with how the finished film turned out. His initial vision for the film was more whimsical, while Marvel instead wanted something more stark and dark to contrast with the vibrant first film. Several major plot points were also changed in editing and reshoots to accommodate planned future storylines. An example is Loki, who was originally killed off in the first cut, but is shown to have faked his death in the final cut.


Trivia: Thor takes the head of a statue of Bor as a reference to the comics, where Bor is killed by Thor.


Trivia: Adam's Warlock's cocoon can be seen in the collector's place.


Continuity mistake: When the aether enters Jane, just before she ends up back on earth, she is cross-like in a sea of red, but she is wearing a breastplate. She does not get given this until she is taken to Asgard 15 minutes later.

More quotes from Thor: The Dark World

Question: Loki (as Odin) quotes a conversation that occurred between Thor and Odin. This conversation happened after Loki let go of the handle Thor offered to keep him from falling off the bi-frost. How does Loki know what Odin tells Thor when he's supposedly headed to Midgard (Earth) as they speak? Can Loki read minds? If so, I don't recall any movies he comes out in mentioning mind reading.

Answer: Loki has been shown to exhibit numerous powers in the movies that can explain how he knew about this conversation. In all the movies, he has been shown to appear in hologram-like forms in different locations. For example, in The Avengers, he uses this power to meet up with The Other who is in the middle of space, whilst he is on Earth. In the end credits scene for Thor, he was able to watch over Selvig and Nick Fury's conversation despite not being there. In Thor: Ragnarok, he was able to see into Valkyrie's past through touching her head (though this power was not established until Thor: Ragnarok). Any of these powers could have been used to find out about this conversation between Thor and Odin.
