We certainly don’t like to pigeonhole an actor by any single role that they play as it’s crushed many any otherwise potentially awesome career, but sometimes the humor just lends itself in that direction. With the latest clip for Thor: The Dark World, we get the fun Darcy interrupting Jane’s date which has her dealing with some technology issues in front of Chris O’Dowd. O’Dowd has managed to get a pretty good start to a Hollywood career in the last few years, but a clip like this just has you wishing he’d channel his The IT Crowd character for a moment and asking if they’ve turned it off and on again to see if that will get it to work.
Plot concept: 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.
