First Thor: The Dark World Poster Brings the Thunder and Lightning

Thor The Dark World (2013) Movie Poster

Chris Hemsworth stands tall in the first poster for Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World”. Hemsworth returns to play the God of Thunder, here shown with his trusty hammer putting, no doubt, the fear of God into the bad guys. Former “Game of Thrones” director Alan Taylor helms the project, which is due to show off its first trailer early next week on Tuesday.

I gotta admit, I didn’t think the first “Thor” movie would even work, but it’s really grown on me since I saw it two years ago. Now that it’s been introduced, the sequel should build on that by exploring more of Thor’s world. That should be fun.

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” also stars Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins.

It’s hammer time again this November 8, 2013.
