Sparks are literally flying as the Aussie hunk, fresh from sharing the superhero stage in The Avengers, wields his thunder-inducing hammer in the name of justice. With the U.S. release of Iron Man 3 less than a months away, Marvel Studios is already gearing up for its next superhero flick, Thor: The Dark World.
Natalie Portman will return as Thor’s Earthly love interest and Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as the mischievous Loki. They will be joined by newcomers Kat Dennings and Zachary Levi.
A trailer for The Dark World will be released to iTunes on April 23, and the film hits theaters Nov. 8.
Set one year after The Avengers, Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. However, a primeval race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to plunge 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.
