Marvel kicks off its Phase II sequels this summer with Iron Man 3 in May, followed by Thor: The Dark World in November. Actress Jaimie Alexander, who returns as Sif in this Thor sequel, recently spoke out about the follow-up, revealing it has a darker tone.

"It's going to have a bit of a darker feel, a lot more action. We get to explore different realms a lot more, and you get to see a lot more of Asgard. You get to know the people of Asgard."

The actress also revealed that the relationship between Sif and Chris Hemsworth's Thor will be explored.

"We sort of explore the Sif/Thor relationship a little bit. It's more getting a feel of who these people are and how they are the way they are with each other. It was fun for me, and fun for Chris (Hemsworth). Him and I are almost like brother-sister types, so I was like, maybe that translates into 'They love each other' on camera. It's a little weird."

She also spoke about going into the vibe of this sequel, with a new director, Game of Thrones' Alan Taylor, at the wheel.

"That was hard, at first. I didn't know what to expect. I love (Thor director Kenneth Branagh) very much, and he is a huge staple in my life because he launched my career. I have to say, though, it's always great to work with new people, and Alan Taylor has brought a whole new vision to Thor. We've remained our own characters, obviously, so there's still that similarity between the first and the second one, but there's a darker feel to this one. A little bit more gladiator-ish, a little bit more Viking-ish. I'm really excited to see how it turns out."

Thor: The Dark World was released November 8th, 2013 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Eccleston, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Ray Stevenson. The film is directed by Alan Taylor.

    Hopefully this one delivers. I didn't care for the first film at all.

    I think this second Thor movie has the potential to be better than the first. While not truly cosmic in scope it seems it will embrace all of the nine worlds of Asgardian cosmology. Also I like the idea of Malkeith and the dark elves being used.

    As an Aussie sci-fi writer: I've written a solid collection of Marvel (espec Thor) fan fiction, which can be found under my name David Scholes on fan fiction net.

    More Asgard is what I wanted in the first one, so this direction sounds good to me. I'm hoping for a bigger role for Sif in this one.

    Good. That fact that they completely skipped this relationship in the first one annoyed me greatly.

    I like the idea of it being more 'Gladiator/Viking' style in the approach, means the action will feel more real and not like a buncha people just pretend fighting, hopefully. I hate when I see movies in those genres and the pg13 rating kills the action

    I'm looking at you Robin Hood.... Seriously Ridley lol

    This is just what i was hoping to hear. Sif is a great character and I felt she was robbed in the first movie of some of the more intimate moments that could have been shared between her and thor. Cant wait.
