The blockbuster marks the second instalment in Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following Iron Man 3, which is the highest-grossing movie of the year to date. And whilst projections naturally aren’t nearly as high for Thor: The Dark World, it’s sure to be another big success for Marvel, who are doing so well in the superhero game.
With just two more days before the sequel touches down here, the studio has released a new featurette and TV spot, teasing more of the action so shortly coming our way.
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.
Chris Hemsworth is of course at the centre of the action once more as the eponymous hero, starring alongside Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Christopher Eccleston, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgård, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jaimie Alexander, Kat Dennings, Tadanobu Asano, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Chris O’Dowd, and Rene Russo.
Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) is at the helm this time around, with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: The First Avenger) and Christopher Yost (The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes) penning the script.
Thor: The Dark World is released in 3D and IMAX 3D on 30th October in the UK, with its US release date following next week on November 8th.
