The trend of “dark sequels” continues in the new trailer for Thor: The Dark World. Gone are the blue skies, golden sets, and rainbow bridges as Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor takes the film in a grittier direction. Much like Iron Man 3, the film will take place after the events from The Avengers and lead up to The Avengers 2 in May 2015. Along with Chris Hemsworth, many actors from the first movie will return including Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard, and Idris Elba.
View the trailer below:
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 “Marvel’s 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.
Thor: The Dark World comes to theaters November 8th.
