Rumors, rumors, rumors! Yes, we here at the NB got em all right here, right now. Enough rumors to tantalize, tease and, ultimately, frustrate every fan of every film being made. This week’s rumormill addition? Thor 2: The Dark World may feature the death of a major character.
“Sources” involved in the currently ongoing shooting process are saying that someone is going to die. One individual has even gone so far as to claim that it will be none other than Odin (AKA Anthony Hopkins with an eye patch and beard).
This could be complete rubbish, of course, but even if it proves to be true it wouldn’t be such the huge ordeal that some might think. They’ve killed off ol’ One-Eye a few times in the comics only to bring him back later (usually). But, considering this is a movie franchise, it could be an attempt to phase Hopkins out. Given that Marvel Studios probably wants to make another 10 sequels, he might have decided to get off the ship before it sets sail for the next 20 years.
The has a set release date of November 6th, 2013, so I guess we’ll have to wait until then to see if and who is going to get the axe.
Thanks again to geektyrant for helping spread the good word.
