The Universe Needs Saving in Epic New Thor: The Dark World Trailer

Check out the first full trailer for Alan Taylor’s “Thor: The Dark World”, which finds the brothers teaming up to battle a new, deadlier enemy, one of which is apparently made entirely of rocks. That’s, uh, kind of new. Former “Doctor Who” star Christopher Eccleston is the bad guy this time, so that means Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is just the sorta bad guy. Of course, knowing ol Loki, he might end up betraying everyone all over again — unless Natalie Portman can stop him, though she will have to work on that girly swing first.

It’s actually a very good trailer, and looks quite epic. And is it me, or did Rene Russo just kicked a bunch of asses in one scene there?

Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. However, a shadowy 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.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, 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.

Hammerin’ home this November 8, 2013.

Added: A new image of Loki killing time.

    Okay so the geek in me lost it at the end! That was a Kronan that he turned into pebbles. For those not in the know they were Thor’s first opponents in his comics debut. Also one of the survivors from that experience goes on th become one of Hulk’s allies in “Planet Hulk.” Nice homage! Trailer looks great, and Loki is hilarious and awesome as usual. Can’t wait to see some more of the 9 realms.

      i DID notice that was Kronan!!!!!!!!

      I just end up reading Thor Omnibus by Lee/Kirby and Planet Hulk!!

      Man, the guy looked just the same!!! Really cool!! The trailer was all kinds of awesome. The only thing I didn’t liked… Haimdal without his helmet. Dunno.. takes some of the powerful image he had on the first one. Everything else, top 10!

      Yes!!! Korg! Although it would have been nice to see that for the first time in the theater. Looks bad ass! Can’t wait!

  • Aegon the Conqueror

    Man this was so much better than the first trailer. Cannot wait!
