There are very few TV series out there that can illicit excitement by name alone. Good marketing requires powerful images or exciting clips to swoop in and grab a viewer’s attention, but every now and then a series will come about that can stir up a conversation and speculation using the minimal amount of effort. Game of Thrones is one of those shows. Just take a look at the first teaser for Season 3. The HBO series manages to be as gripping as ever using a simple graphic – the abbreviated GoT with three swords going through the “o” – and a woman’s voice over. We’re then shown Season 3’s premiere date, March 31, 2013. All this is shown in a mere 15 seconds!
Game of Thrones is without a doubt the kind of show that will go down in history for uniting television viewers from across the world. It seems like everyone »

There's still more than four months to go until the premiere of the third season of Game of Thrones, so to help ease the wait and further fuel anticipation for the next batch of episodes, HBO ran a brief teaser trailer prior to the latest episode of Boardwalk Empire, and now it's made its way online for all to see. Before you get too excited, it's only fifteen seconds in length and features no footage, but rather a voice-over teasing the epic action that's coming our way in March 2013.

Filming on the King's Landing scenes of the third season of HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones wrapped in the coastal city of Dubrovnik, Croatia this past week, but before the production moved on Croatian internet television channel DrubrovnikTV managed to grab some interviews with show creators David Benioff and D.B.

All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Who would win in a fight — the Prince of Persia or Wolverine? Heat Vision reports that Jake Gyllenhall will butt heads with Hugh Jackman in "Prisoners," a thriller about a carpenter (Jackman) who takes the law into his own hands after his daughter and best friend are kidnapped. The "End of Watch" star will play the detective on the case who doesn't take to the amateur vigilante's methods.
• Might Q be joining Thor and Catwoman in Steven Spielberg's "Robopocalypse"? Variety reports that "Skyfall" actor Ben Whishaw has been approached for the role of an expert hacker named Lurker in the sci-fi action extravaganza that's set to hit theaters on April 25, 2014 (a rather non-Spielberg time of the year, no?).

Thanks to its ‘otherworldly’ origins, the Thor comic has its own vast continuity and an array of characters based on rich Norse mythology to draw from, and from the sounds of it, director Alan Taylor is attempting to explore much of it in his first big budget feature film.
Even if we ignore rumors (unfortunately only that) about Dr. Strange’s appearance in Thor 2, the film will attempt to introduce other realms and new villains into the cinematic universe. The latest news about the sequel has UK actors Richard Brake and Clive Russell joining the cast as Asgardian characters who may help the hero against his newfound foes. We wrote about this a few days ago, but the focus »

The cast of Marvel Studios' Thor: The Dark World has grown by two more names today with the news that Richard Brake (Batman Begins) and Clive Russell (The Wolfman) have signed on to the Alan Taylor-directed sequel.
Best known for his role as Joe Chill in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, Brake has been cast in the Alan Taylor-directed sequel as "a captain in the elite Einherjar", an Asgardian warrior team, while Russell - who recently signed on to appear as Ser Brynden in the third season of HBO's Game of Thrones - will portray Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) older brother Tyr, Asgard's God of War (and Odin's rightful heir, surely?).
Even though filming is well under way on Thor: The Dark World - including battle scenes filmed in Surrey - two more cast members have just been announced.
British actor Clive Russell (above) will play Tyr, the older brother of Thor and Asgard's god of war. He wields a sword and, on one occasion, the powerful Mace of the Myth Wars after stealing the weapon from Odin.
The other new face in the franchise is Welsh-born Richard Brake (right). He is playing a captain in the Einherjar, an army of dead warriors in Norse mythology who have fought alongside Thor in the comics on several occasions.

After the events of "The Avengers" as well as his previous solo film, you could forgive Thor for thinking that Loki has turned out to be something of a letdown as far as siblings go. Not to worry, though. It turns out that Asgard's most thunderous warrior has another brother in the offing — one we'll meet in "The Dark World," no less.
Deadline has the news on two new casting additions for director Alan Taylor's upcoming "Thor" sequel, including "Game of Thrones" actor Clive Russell as Tyr, older brother to Thor and Asgard's god of war. He is, unlike Loki, a natural son of Odin, played by Anthony Hopkins.
Russell has yet to make his "Game of Thrones" debut, but he'll appear in the upcoming third season as Ser Brynden Tully, the Blackfish, a fierce warrior and uncle of Catelyn's. Readers of the books are already well aware of Blackfish's badassery, »

The upcoming "Thor" sequel, called "Thor: The Dark World," has cast Richard Brave (Batman Begins) as a captain in the elite Einherjar, a warrior team that fights alongside Thor, and Clive Russell (Sherlock Holmes) as the God of War, Tyr, who is Thor's older brother and biological son of Odin. In the new movie, Loki forms an alliance with Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) in order to secure the Casket of Ancient Winters, which is an artifact from the realm of the Frost Giants and a powerful and deadly weapon. When opened, it releases powerful arctic weather that is capable of freezing anything in its path; killing humans and immobilizing Asgardians. The new movie will be directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones") and is set to hit theaters on November 8th, 2013. »
Poor Thor. Another jealous brother to deal with? Richard Brake and Clive Russell have been added to the cast of “Thor: The Dark World.” A bit of info on who they’ll be playing, via Deadline: Brake will play a captain in the elite Einherjar, a warrior team that in the mythology fought alongside Thor on numerous occasions. Blake’s [sic] credits include playing Joe Chill, the murderer of Bruce Wayne’s parents, in Christopher Nolan’s 2005 film Batman Begins…Russell will play Tyr, the older brother of Thor and Asgard’s god of war. Unlike Thor’s evil brother Loki, Tyr is a natural son of Odin. In the comic lore, Tyr was also the protector of Asgard, before Thor took his mantle. Needless to say, Tyr harbors a bit of animosity towards the Mighty Avenger. I, for one, am very glad to hear that more demigods are on their way. »

Marvel Studios’ Thor: The Dark World is netting some fantastic acting talent, as evidenced by today’s news that Clive Russell and Richard Brake are joining the cast of the Scandinavian superhero sequel.
Russell is set to play Tyr. Tyr is a god of war, and happens to be Thor’s big bro — this time blood-related, unlike Little Orphan Loki. You’ll recognize Russell from the recent Sherlock Holmes films, and he’s hooking up with Game of Thrones in its upcoming third season.
Brake has signed on to be a captain in Thor’s warrior posse – also known as the Einherjar. You’ll best recognize Brake as Joe Chill, the murderer of Bruce Wayne’s parents, in Batman Begins.
Thor: The Dark World hits theaters November 8th, 2013.

Four of the upcoming five Marvel Studios productions with confirmed release dates are sequels to established properties and of them, Thor: The Dark World may have the most complicated story to tell. Due to its otherworldly origins, the Thor comic has its own rich continuity and large array of characters based on Norse mythology to draw from, and from the sounds of it, director Alan Taylor is attempting to explore much of it in his first big budget feature film.
Even if we ignore rumors about a Dr. Strange appearance in Thor 2, the film will attempt to introduce other realms and new villains into the cinematic universe. The latest news about the sequel has UK actors Richard Brake and Clive Russell joining Thor: ...

Director Alan Taylor's sequel Thor: The Dark World has added two veteran actors in heroic roles. First up is Richard Brake, who is making the jump from DC to Marvel (fans of Batman Begins may remember him as Joe Chill, the hoodlum who murdered Bruce Wayne's parents). Joining him will be Clive Russell, an imposing Brit perhaps best known for playing Captain Tanner in Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Thor: The Dark World, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba and Kat Dennings, opens November 8th, 2013. Hit the jump for more casting details. Deadline reports that Brake will join as a captain of the elite warriors known as the Einherjar. In Norse mythology, these are the "lone warriors" who die in battle and are brought to Valhalla by the valkyries. In the Marvel world, the Einherjar were led by Ander and were responsible for training Thor. »

With shooting long since underway, there is still, apparently room for two more bodies on the Thor: The Dark World set. And while they might not be megastar names, both Richard Brake and Clive Russell are solid That Guy character actors.Brake has signed on to play a captain of the elite warriors called the Einherjar. According to Norse mythology they were fighters who died nobly on the field of combat and are carried to Valhalla by the Valkyries.

Clive Russell and Richard Brake have just joined the upcoming Thor: The Dark World movie. That’s what I call an awesome supporting cast! The movie, which comes from director Alan Taylor, is the second film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Two and is already set to open in November 2013.
As you already know, Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Idris Elba, Zachary Levi, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Eccleston, Kat Dennings and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje are all on board for this sequel.
Now Russell jumps in to play Thor’s older brother Tyr, while Brake will star as a captain in Thor’s Einherjar fighting force. Not much is known about the plot at this moment, although Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige previously revealed that they’re going to take Thor literally to other worlds:
