The ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith the Accursed, played by Christopher Eccleston is determined to plunge the universe back into darkness.
The dilemma forces Thor to seek an alliance with his enemy and brother Loki, who wreaked havoc as the villain in “The Avengers,” to “defeat an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand,” according to the studio.
The trailer provides a glimpse of Natalie Portman, who plays Jane Foster, an astrophysicist and Thor’s love interest. Thor carries her to Asgard from Earth after she’s discovered to possess a mystical power.
Tom Hiddleston also makes an appearance, reprising his role as Loki.
The movie also stars Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Rene Russo and Jaimie Alexander.
Anthony Hopkins plays Odin, King of the Norse gods.
“Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor based on Marvel’s classic superhero, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery “ #83 in August, 1962.
Portman is hot as Jane and tough to boot. Check out the photos and trailer below and be sure to follow TheImproper on Twitter for the latest film updates.
