This brand new Thor: The Dark World synopsis fresh from Disney doesn’t drop any bombs about the goings-on of the upcoming Thor sequel, but it does offer some great connections to the world in which it will take place.

From what we’ve been able to glean from the leaked set videos from Thor: The Dark World, we’ve known that more otherwordly war is on the slate for the Thor sequel, and the casting of Christopher Eccelston as Malekith the Accursed has confirmed that the Dark Elves will play an integral role in the battle, but how Thor fits into the mix has been something of a mystery.

Will he foolishly start a war a la Thor or is he just stepping in to pick up the pieces? This is a question that the new synopsis from Disney does a pretty hazy job of answering, but it seems that the events from The Avengers have launched our Asgardian hero into this war with the Dark Elves. Below we’ve included the synopsis, followed by a quick analysis about what exactly they may be fighting over.

Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

The synopsis does an excellent job of assuring us that the stakes in Thor: The Dark World will be sky-high (literally), but letting the audience know that the events of The Avengers play into the war is interesting indeed. Are the Dark Elves fighting for the Tesseract that Thor has brought back to Earth? Does Thanos play some role that we aren’t aware of yet?

Thor The Dark World Infinity Gauntlet

To both answers, we say yes. To us, it seems pretty clear that the motivation behind the Dark Elves will revolve around the cosmic cube, perhaps at the advantage of a certain Mad Titan that his his eye on something else in Odin’s treasure room. In case the obvious escapes our readers, that particular item is pictured on the left.

Anyone that has seen Thor a hundred thousand times (this writer) can tell you that The Infinity Gauntlet makes a lightning-fast cameo appearance in the film, and the after-credits sequence of The Avengers convinces us that it was no accident. Thanos and this shiny glove go hand in hand, and if you’ll notice carefully, one of the gems is the awfully familiar Mind Gem that Loki uses to turn Hawkeye and Selvig into his personal flying monkeys.

If anything, the presence of these items easily tie into the overall scheme that Thanos has to acquire the glove, and getting the cosmic cube back on Asgard might be the terrific distraction he needs to gain access to Odin’s Treasure Vault. Consider this, Thanos makes a deal with the Dark Elves for the cosmic cube. In all the commotion, including (as the synopsis suggests) the inclusion of the All-Father Odin in the war, the treasure vault is left all but ungaurded, allowing the Mad Titan to step in and claim the Nintendo Power Glo- the Infinity Gauntlet for himself.

Is this whole war a power play for Thanos to claim the Infinity Gauntlet? Will the war between the Dark Elves and the Asgardians be fueled by something else? How does Jane Foster come into play? Thanks to Collider for the synopsis!

Will ‘Thor: The Dark World’ feature a play by Thanos?

‘Galavant’ cast thank fans for #MoreGalavant campaign

"So just dance, dance, dance."

4:30 pm EDT, May 25, 2016

Galavant may have been axed over on ABC, but the fans refuse to stop the beat — and the cast are getting down to it!

There’s nothing worse than seeing your favorite show cut off in its prime, but if there’s one thing that fans do best in moments of crushing adversity, that’s come together and use their voices in a cacophony. And Galavant fans? They want a third season of their little show that could and are campaigning for it to return.

That campaign has not escaped the notice of the cast, who came together to thank the fans in a video that you can’t help but move your feet to — and the rest of your body.

“It warms the cockles of my heart to see everything you’re doing to save our beautiful little show,” Timothy Odmunson says, at the top of the video — right before it launches into Justin Timberlake’s newest hit, “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” and we’re treated to a montage of familiar and brand-new footage from Galavant’s stars.

Karen David (Princess Isabella), who has also been vocal on social media about the #MoreGalavant campaign, leads the charge — and has printed out everyone’s contributions so far. But don’t worry, she planted a tree to make up for all the paper that was used. Also shaking their tush is Genevieve Allenbury, who played the Queen of Valencia throughout Galavant’s two season run.

Other familiar faces from the cast include Robert Lindsay, Ben Presley, Mallory Jansen, Vinnie Jones, and Muzz Khan. Not to mention the titular hero, Joshua Sasse.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Galavant without some cameos — and this thank you video is no exception to that. Making their debut are Billy Boyd (of Lord of the Rings fame), holding a sign that proclaims, “You can’t eat this Hobbit!” and Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, with his own “Galavanterrific” sign.

And, what better way to close out the video than with an appearance from Weird Al. “Well, that should definitely do it,” he proclaims. “I can’t imagine any network not picking up this show now that it’s a hashtag campaign. Feel the power of the hashtag!”

So, Galavant fans, get signing and start dancing. And here’s hoping Tad Cooper breathes fire again — be it on the stage, or screen.

This week’s twist on Game of Thrones was one for the show’s history books, and now the fans and creators are acting on their emotions.

Sunday’s Game of Thrones found Hodor dying (dammit Bran) as he held back the army of wights by holding the door. A significant death like this one naturally became a big topic of conversation online, with fans coming up with adorable yet depressing tributes to Hodor.

For example, viewers have been creating Hodor doorstoppers:

Interestingly, we couldn’t find any Hodor doorstoppers for sale on Etsy. Get on that, people!

Others have added Hodor to the ‘hold door’ button in their local elevator

On last night’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ showrunners DB Weiss and David Benioff ‘apologized’ for killing Hodor — but not for the reason you think:

Starz has decided that their original programming can compete with the other hot shows airing on Sunday nights.

Network CEO Chris Albrecht has told THR that they are planning on moving all of their original shows including Outlander, Ash Vs Evil Dead, and Black Sails — which currently air on Saturdays — to Sundays. The move will begin July 17 with the Starz series Power. Outlander will likely not move to Sundays until next season.

“Sundays are a prestige night and we feel our shows are definitely going to be very competitive, not just in viewership but in the attention-getting business on Sundays,” Albrecht said to THR, “So it made sense to move.”

Outlander and Starz’s other original series will be going up against tough competition, including AMC’s The Walking Dead and HBO’s Game of Thrones. Albrecht says part of the reason he wanted to move the shows was to make sure they were part of the watercooler talk on Monday mornings.

THR notes that Showtime’s original series typically get DVR’d, “growing 214 percent [in viewership] during the course of a week.” This would suggest that a lot of people aren’t sitting in front of a TV on Saturdays and want to watch the shows on a different day of the week. So, moving their programming to Sundays may not impact overall viewership numbers much.

Starz recently overtook Showtime as the second-most subscribed to cable channel. HBO still sits at number one, though all three are facing tough competition from Netflix.
