So far all of the films in Marvel’s universe that lead up to The Avengers have had some little connection or sign that will tie all of them together. It only makes sense if both Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger follow suit so it’s time now to get a look at what’s ahead of us.
Be warned now that there are SPOILERS ahead and if you don’t want to know about them, then quit reading.
The little post credits scene that is going to run at the end of Thor has now hit the net and it tells an interesting tale. Well, at least a description of the scene has hit the net since the world premiere just the other night. This is the last time I’ll warn you so don’t keep reading if you don’t want to know.
Thanks to InsidePulse (via BeyondHollywood) for this tidbit.
In the scene Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) travels to New Mexico to meet with Dr. Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard). He is there to discuss recent discoveries Selvig has made regarding alternate universes. He is also there to get Selvig’s advice about a large metal case, which contains the Tesseract/Cosmic Cube. When Selvig asks what it is, Fury responds that it is a source of immense power. The camera than pans back to Selvig, and a reflection reveals that Selvig is now being possessed by Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who says: “That’s very interesting”.
If you’ve been paying close attention to all happening with the Marvel movies then you know this works quite well and fits right in. The trailers and plot line for Captain America show that the film deals with the “Cosmic Cube” which would mean that some sort of time travel is indeed going to happen.
Thor will be released in IMAX 3D, regular 2D, and 3D on May 6, 2011. The film stars Chris Hemsworth as the man himself, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Clark Gregg, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Joshua Dallas, Tadanobu Asano, and Anthony Hopkins.
Those in the New Orleans area will be able to pre-order their tickets and find showtimes here for the next true guardian as he wages battle with his mighty hammer. Make sure to stick around after the credits though because you don’t want to miss the extra scene.
