THOR: THE DARK WORLDThe new trailer for "Thor: The Dark World" has finally hit online, granting fans a view of new footage galore and a better idea of what to expect from the November sequel.

Screenrant spoke with star Chris Hemsworth about his return to the role of Thor on "The Dark World" set and the character's relationship with Loki in the sequel.

“I can’t say too much, but I think in the comic books you kind of roll your eyes sometimes at the amount of times they’re back to being best friends. And so we wanted to keep in mind, Loki did just try to kill you for the seventh time -- and Earth," Hemsworth told Screenrant. "It’s a big war, and what have you… Maybe there’s something we can maybe, ... We have a common need or something which, you know, that would, well... You know the scene in Avengers when Thor says ‘careful how you speak. He be crazy but it’s my brother,’ kind of sums it up. Yeah, he’s a screw up but he is my brother. I don’t think they’re back to being best friends, but Thor’s at a loss about how they got to this point, ’cause for him, I think [treachery] stuff came out of nowhere and I think that in this film [Thor] certainly can acknowledge now with a maturity that he should have been more aware of Loki over the years and where he was positioned and all of this, and why maybe that led him down a certain path. I think there’s maybe an empathetic view for Loki that no one else can have because they’re not bound by blood, you know."

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.Marvel Televsion has debuted two new small teasers for "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." including one of Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson introducing the team, and a new featurette focusing on Chloe Bennet's character, Skye.

Cobie Smulders discussed her role in the pilot as Maria Hill with The Hollywood Reporter, and whether she might return for future episodes, despite her current commitments for "How I Met Your Mother."]

"I'm up for it, it's just a matter of the direction that they decide to go with the show," Smulders told THR. "I don't know how much they'll be at the Command Center and how much they need me around. If it works out organically with the story line, then I'd be happy to come in but I truly don't know."

Debuts September 24 on ABC

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PASTBryan Singer has revealed via Twitter that Quicksilver's scenes in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be shot at 3600 Frames Per Second and sped up in order to accomplish the special effect of the character's incredible speed. As a result, the set is far brighter than normal in order to compensate.

X-FORCEJeff Wadlow spoke with Bleeding Cool about his upcoming take on "X-Force" and what fans can expect from his take on the team.

"I’m very deep into it. I can’t really say much as Fox has asked me not to but, again, it’s not a reboot or reimagining of the X cinematic universe," Wadlow told Bleeding Cool. "Tonally it will fit in, quite well with all the other movies… but then I think the other movies cover a wide range of tones. It’s certainly not going to be tonally similar to 'Kick-Ass.' I hope it will have what fans of X-Force will expect. I think it will be a little edgier, I think you’ll see some characters with different takes on what it means to be a mutant. There will be some grey areas that the movies haven’t yet been explored. It won’t be as 'overt.' This movie is more about the grey areas in between.

"I’m going to take some big ideas from the X-universe and flip them, I think in an interesting way," he continued. "It’s hard to talk about that, though, without being specific. I probably shouldn’t have even talked about that at all because I can’t get into the specifics but I will say it’s similar to 'Kick-Ass 2' in that it wasn’t an open assignment, it wasn’t 'We’re going to make an X-Force movie, who’s interested? Here’s what the movie’s going to be.' When Mark [Millar] got the job with Fox I said, 'The first movie you guys should make is an X-Force movie and here’s how you should do it.' And that got him excited, and that got the studio excited and that’s the movie I’m writing."
