Darkness Thunders Its Way To IMAX For THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Circulating the world wide web like wildfire is the latest new announcement from IMAX regaridng the upcoming release of Thor: The Dark Globe. Just in time for those Thor Halloween costumes to commence selling, Marvel is reformatting the film for an earlier IMAX release.

The news comes following the release of the newest theatrical trailer for the film, in addition to director Alan Taylor's public announcement that he and the crew are adding and reshooting much more scenes with co-star Tom Hiddleston who plays Thor's adopted evil brother-in-arms, Loki, which is exciting considering that Loki will not be appearing at all in The Avengers 2. But Hiddleston is a tremendous fan preferred, and so at any rate, it would make sense to add a lot more of him, if not for other reasons. "We’re doing full scenes, scenes that were not in the film before." Taylor explains in a quote over at ScreenCrush by way of Collider. "We’re adding scenes, generating scenes, writing scenes for the first time. We realized how nicely Loki was working in the movie, and we wanted to do a lot more with him. So it was that sort of factor, it was like, ‘Oh, we could do this, we could jam this in right here simply because he’s such a great guy to watch do his stuff.’"

On that note, check out the following press release:
