Thor:-The-Dark-World-UK-Quad-PosterChris Hemsworth is just over a week away from returning to the big screen on our shores in Thor: The Dark World, the second instalment in Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the second instalment in the standalone Thor movies.

And with just a matter of days separating us from its arrival (and a little bit longer across the Atlantic), Marvel has debuted another explosive TV spot to help make that wait a little easier.

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.

Picking up where Thor and The Avengers left off, the sequel sees Hemsworth joined by a host of familiar and new faces, led by 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 for the sequel, with a script penned by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: The First Avenger) and Christopher Yost (The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes).

Thor: The Dark World will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on 30th October here in the UK, with its US release date landing soon after on November 8th.
