The first trailer for “Thor: The Dark World” has been released at Apple.
(Update: It’s also on YouTube via Marvel UK.)
The sequel, set for a Nov. 8 release, features Thor versus an ancient race called the Maleketh. Here’s the synopis:
Marvels “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 Marvels “Thor” and “Marvels 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.
The film stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. One of the recently released photos shows Jane Foster apparently in Asgard, with some Asgard-style wear:
Alan Taylor, who has directed episodes of “Game of Thrones” and “Mad Men” is on hand to direct the Marvel Comics hero in the latest installment. Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins are set to return from the first “Thor” film.
