In “Thor: The Dark World” more of the Nine Realms are introduced, offering a better understanding of the history and complexities of Thor’s universe. The Nine Realms are taken from Norse mythology and refer to the nine worlds that are supported by Yggdrasil, an immense ash tree, central to Norse cosmology. Asgard is depicted at the top and Earth, known as Midgard, in the middle. In the original “Thor,” Yggdrasil was established as a cosmic structure formed by a series of interwoven wormholes linking the nine worlds (Realms) together.

Nine realms, filled with elves, dwarves, gods... oh yeah, and then there's earth.ReplyDelete
I do love Thor and the mythology around him and the posters for the film. And I'm sad I haven't watched the films (although I feel they could be the only superhero films I could enjoy) but I cannot stand the wimpy and fake acting of Natalie Unimportant.....ReplyDelete
The more you know... *rainbow star*ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see more of Idris Elba!
This another great lead in to Thor 2 Jeremy. I heard it might feature all nine realms. That would be awesome!ReplyDelete
Thor is good. Thor is cool. Thor could kick Superman's butt. He is a God!ReplyDelete
I love Thor, but to Mark who said he could kick SM's butt...I must respectfully disagree. Also, they did the fight on youtube a few times, which was fun.ReplyDelete
I wonder how Thor would fare against Superman? Supes has those heat vision eyes! Sizzle. Sunblock anyone? Did you see the dress the actress who played Sif wore at the opening? Shades of Iron Man 3's opening!!ReplyDelete
But, but, but... Thor is a GOD!? Superman is just another life form from a different planet, etc. And Thor has a hammer, so really handy in one of those unexpected D.I.Y. situations.ReplyDelete
(plus Thor knows how to wear his underpants properly)
Yeah, but....it's Superman. lol. I mean he picked up Thor's hammer.Delete
Seriously!? I never knew that? I bet that pissed off Thor mightily.ReplyDelete
