As expected Marvel and Disney have released the first official trailer for Thor: The Dark World, directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones). In the trailer it doesn’t take long for Thor to find Jane Foster in London and fly her up to Asgard, which appears to create a number of problems. Odin and the Asgardians don’t approve, providing a ‘forbidden love’ element to the story, and new villain Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) now has a weakness (Thor’s love for Jane) he can exploit.

Here’s a brief synopsis for Thor: The Dark World:
Set one year after The Avengers, Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. However, a primeval 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.
The film is due for release November 2013. Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as Thor, and will star opposite Natalie Portman, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Zachary Levi, Ray Stevenson and Stellan Skarsgård.
