After THE AVENGERS, some may have forgotten we still had a few more stand-alone character sequels to come from the Marvel Universe on the big screen. IRON MAN 3 hits this May, and we’ve posted a lot from that already, but THOR: THE DARK WORLD is being released later in the year, and much of it has been a mystery… until now. The sequel looks pretty (for lack of a better word) dark, and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and the great Anthony Hopkins. Check out the first trailer at the bottom of this article, and the first poster above and tell us your thoughts in the comments.
Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. However, a shadowy race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to descend the universe into darkness. Confronted by an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot overcome, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and set out on a dangerous journey that will force him to make the ultimate sacrifice.
