The Norse God of Thunder is back in action in the trailer for Thor: The Dark World. Taking place after the events of “The Avengers,” Thor (Chris Hemsworth reprising his role) is now tasked with staving off a darkness that threatens the universe. To help him repeal the wave of Dark Elves led by the evil Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) he returns to Earth for love interest Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and even asks for help from exiled brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston). This movie is shaping up better than I expected, and is even testing the upcoming “Iron Man 3” for Marvel superiority. The trailer is embedded for your enjoyment, so check it out now.
Thor: The Dark World stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Anthony Hopkins, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Rene Russo and Ray Stevenson.
Marvel’s 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 “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.
