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.
