Give Marvel this: they sure know how to connect the crap out of their universes. Watching what Marvel is doing with their characters and properties, and then comparing it to, say, Fox and Warner Bros., it’s like watching an adult working, and watching their kids trying to copy what dad is doing. It’s really astounding. Though to give them credit, the kids seem to be growing up. I guess watching daddy make a billion dollars on a single movie tends to grow you up real fast.

If you saw Joss Whedon’s “Agents of SHIELD” last night, then you saw this extended TV spot for “Thor: The Dark World”, which ties up “Thor: The Dark World” with “The Avengers”, and then some.

Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. However, a shadowy race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to descend the universe into darkness. Confronted by an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot overcome, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and set out on a dangerous journey that will force him to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins.
