In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and 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.
Since the beginning of the Marvel movie mega-franchise, one of the things that has impressed me the most about Marvel’s work has been the fact that they’ve gotten me to like Thor. Not only that, but they’ve got me really excited for the sequel, which is being helmed by Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor. Plus, Christopher Eccleston is the villain! Sign me up! Here’s a featurette for it, too.
Thor: The Dark World comes out November 8, 2013.
