Fandral and Sif movie costumes from Thor: The Dark World on display...

Even though I loved Thor: The Dark World, the one thing that would have improved the Marvel sequel for me is more screen time for the Thunder God's Asgardian companions, 'The Warriors Three' and the 'Lady Sif'. Whether or not you agree, hopefully you'll love seeing these original 'Fandral' and 'Sif' costumes up close and on display at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema on November 15, 2013.

These amazing armoured Asgardian looks worn by Zachary Levi and Jaimie Alexander in the movie were designed by Wendy Partridge and were also on display beside Tom Hiddleston's Loki costume from Thor: The Dark World.

Plus if you want to see more fantastical Asgardian attire, be sure to check out these Frigga and Odin movie costumes from Thor 2 worn by Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins, as Thor and Loki's parents and the rulers of Asgard.

Ever the chivalrous gentlemen, it's only fair that Fandral allows Sif's costume to be showcased in more detail first.

At the start of the movie Thor's loyal friends, Sif and The Warriors Three, are helping him restore order to the Nine Realms after the chaos caused by the destruction of the Bifröst Bridge in the first film.

In the Marvel comic books the Lady Sif is Thor's lover, but in the movie universe her love for the God of Thunder has so far been unrequited and she is the mortal 'Dr. Jane Foster's' rival for Thor's affection.

But like most Asgardian women she is a true and fierce warrior, and this is the sleek silver and red leather battle armour she sports in the movie.

If you're a fan of the actress, you may also want to take a look at these photos of Jaimie Alexander from a fan event for the first Thor movie at my local comic book store.

For this movie sequel, the role of Fandral was recast and is now played by Chuck's Zachary Levi (who also voiced 'Flynn Rider' in Disney's Tangled animated movie). The actor replaced Josh Dallas who plays 'Prince Charming' in TV's Once Upon a Time.

'Fandral the Dashing', as he's known in the comics (hence his fashionable attire and dashing cape), is one of the legendary Warriors Three, along with 'Hogun' and 'Volstagg'.

In addition to assisting the hero of this movie on the battlefield, Fandral and Sif also help Thor spring his scheming half-brother, Loki, from Asgard's dungeons when his help is needed to defeat 'Malekith' and his Dark Elves.

If you like these cool outfits (and I know you cosplayers appreciate all the seam and embroidery details), be sure to also check out Fandral and Sif's weapon props from Thor 2 currently on display at the Treasures of Asgard exhibit at Disneyland.
