Thor: The Dark World just released a new extended trailer (watch it below) right on the heels of the announcement that advanced tickets will go on sale for the November 8 movie on Tuesday. Add to that the news that Joss Whedon was doing some emergency rewriting on the sequel, and there's just a bit of a buzz in the air when it comes to the Asgardian hunkster. On this week's Fancast movies podcast, Erik Davis and Sean O'Connell talk about the Thor: The Dark World news that's making its way around, as well as how Star Wars may be taking a page out of Marvel's playbook while they gear up for new sequels beginning in 2015.
