“Pin-Up” of the Week: Thor: The Dark World – Disney Soda Fountain & Studio Store Pin

SPOILERS

I guess you can tell that this has nothing to do with sports.  Although I think Thor would make one hell of a ballplayer.  Ever since Disney purchased Marvel, they’ve been churning out superhero pins left and right.  Especially when they release a new movie.  To coincide with the release of Thor: The Dark World, Disney released a limited edition pin set which could be purchased at their Soda Fountain & Studio Store in California.  Each pin in the set is limited to 400, except for the El Capitan marquee one which they made 500 of.  The above pin is one of those exclusive pins from that set, and currently sells for $30.00.

I’m a sucker for superhero movies.  They’re my favorite.  Marvel has just done a fantastic job with this whole Avengers story line.  Every movie gives fans one more piece of the puzzle, and leaves us wanting more.  I thought Thor: The Dark World was an interesting follow-up to The Avengers.  Make sure you stick around for the two post credit scenes.  ABC’s Marvels Agents Of Shield is suppose to involve the events of Thor: The Dark World within one of its upcoming episodes.  Maybe it will be their job to take down that left over frost monster which is still running around Earth.

We find out that the Tesseract is considered one of the Infinity Stones in the Marvel cinematic universe.  Volstagg and Sif entrust the Collector with the Aether (which is also an Infinity Stone) because having two of them stored together would be too dangerous.  Did anyone realize that when Jane was standing next to the Aether it was really big, and then when Volstagg and Sif gave it to the Collector is was small enough to hold it in your hand?  What is up with that?

This is probably the nerdiest post I’ve ever written.  But that’s why I love these movies.  They get the mind working.  One more little tidbit.  Samuel L. Jackson plays Nick Fury in a lot of these films.  Right now you see him advertising the Capital One Quicksilver credit card.  I’m sure we’ll see him play Nick Fury again in the next Avengers movie where there plans to be a character called Quicksilver.

As far as superhero movies are concerned, the next one on my list to see is Thor: The Dark World.  Its the next chapter in this whole Avengers story line.  Then its on to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  This is all building up to The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Little League World Series is known for their pins.  Various districts have pins made.  This one comes from District 7 out of Salem, Oregon and features a white-caped Thor.  Collectors can find these floating on eBay for about $2.00 a piece.

This Friday, Thor makes its way into theaters.  I’m looking forward to seeing it.

Super-Hero Madness

This summer is going to be jam packed with super-hero movies.  I can’t wait!!!  They may not win all those fancy awards, but they sure are entertaining.
