If we’re to infer anything from the latest trailer for Thor: The Dark World it’s that brawn alone cannot save the universe from its latest threat. Aside from some very impressive action shots and wonderful views of Asgard, the trailer applies more spotlight to the fact Thor (Chris Hemsworth) needs his power-hungry brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and help from his human love interest Jane (Natalie Portman) to beat the dark forces of Malekith (Christopher Eccleston). See for yourself and you may agree this may be the 2013 superhero movie to eclipse “Man of Steel.” I’m almost a believer.
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.
