This story may well contain a major spoiler.
A couple of good sources have echoed one big Thor 2 idea to me. It's nothing official, but the indications are clear and they've had the right vantage point to read them.
What I'm being told is that one of the main characters in The Dark World is going to be killed off before the end credits roll.
The film is currently shooting here in the UK and I hope that our eyes and ears near the set are going to be able to pick up more information, but for now, we don't know just which character.
One of our sources was "pretty sure" it's going to be Odin who bites the dust, but we've talked it over and they're a "little less sure" now. I have that effect on people sometimes.
We'll keep looking out and listening to rumblings. Stay tuned for whatever details we can turn up.
