This is the first (kind of) official photo from Thor: The Dark World. We’ve seen a ton of behind-the-scenes photos and videos from the set, but this is the first one that has been officially released by the studio to – you’ve guessed – Empire.
It features Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Asgard being directed by Alan Taylor. There’s no doubt in my mind that Taylor is going to take the franchise to a whole new level of awesome. Anyway, have a look.
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.
The movie is scheduled to be released in 3D on November 8th, 2013 and it also stars Natalie Portman, Christopher Eccleston, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Jaimie Alexander, Idris Elba, Zachary Levi, Ray Stevenson, Stellan Skarsgard, Adewale Akunnuoye-Agbaje, Rene Russo, Tadanobu Asano and others.
