Marvel Studios’ “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. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo & Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery” #83 in August, 1962. “Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle and Nigel Gostelow. The film releases November 8, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios.

JerBear - 9/1/2013, 8:55 PM
What relevance would "goomba!" have in any thread?
3DWitchHunt - 9/1/2013, 8:59 PM

@JerBear - are you pre-goomba ad nauseum(big boy word)?

92Marvel - 9/1/2013, 9:02 PM

This film is still too far away! Me want now!
thewonderer - 9/1/2013, 9:20 PM
Calling it now. Malekith is under Loki's control in some form. Loki being taken from prison is all a part of his plan.

The King is back, baby!
DCMarvelFreshman - 9/1/2013, 9:22 PM
@92Marvel Thanks, someone actually linked me to those same pics a while ago. Decided to wait for some in higher quality. Thanks for putting them up here though:)

Jeepers Creepers.
ATrueHero1987 - 9/1/2013, 9:28 PM
Cool find! I wonder if there is going to be any mention of Surtur or Enchanctress in this movie....
92Marvel - 9/1/2013, 9:31 PM
Man it looks like Malekith been Thunderstruck
Aeyan - 9/1/2013, 9:43 PM
SO ready for this!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/1/2013, 10:12 PM
Thor could rip that skinny little [frick] to shreds.
loki668 - 9/1/2013, 10:14 PM
Not if he's wielding the power gem, as many suspect he is.
KALel3412 - 9/1/2013, 10:23 PM
hope its better than the first bc it was awful. but I don't see anything special about what I have seen
Blastaar - 9/1/2013, 10:40 PM
I hope Batman vs Superman is better than MOS bc that was awful.........The first Thor was NOT awful, could it have been better? Yes, but it most definitely was not awful.
superbatspiderman - 9/1/2013, 10:44 PM
If Malekith is under Loki's control in this movie I will be very angry. Marvel needs to get some good villains in their solo movies especially after that Iron Man 3 fiasco. I want Maleketh to be a total badass that wants to kill everything. I also wouldn't mind if they killed off Jane Foster because it would add so much more emotion tot he film. It culd also lead up to Thor and Sif's future romance.
wallhead - 9/1/2013, 10:44 PM
Heimdall looks threatening as shit. Hope they show him and odin kickin ass.
92Marvel - 9/1/2013, 10:50 PM
@SUPERBATSPIDERMAN I don't think Loki has him control because malekith is strong with magic so how could he control him now maybe his working with him.

My idea is when you see Loki cut thor hand off its a trick to make malekith think his on his side cause Loki is good at illusions.

Too much BADASS!!!

Maestro - 9/1/2013, 11:20 PM
That malekith standee looks EPIC!!!
MightyZeus - 9/1/2013, 11:47 PM
Malekith is going to own. I just love the design of him. I also love the actor playing him.

The movie needs to get here sooner.

Also, i hope Idris Elba has a bigger part in this film.
BlindJustice - 9/2/2013, 12:17 AM
So much love for Eccleston from his fans...
BlindJustice - 9/2/2013, 12:19 AM
Malekith is probably the coolest designed villain since Heath Ledger's Joker. He's just so...different.

*waits for oncoming storm from DC fangirls*
BlindJustice - 9/2/2013, 12:48 AM
@MartianAbominationClone - We agreed on our comments that Malekith has a great design. Why do I need to shut it?

mgeoff88 - 9/2/2013, 4:56 AM
So excited for this! Thor: TDW will be here before we know it.

@SUPERBATSPIDERMAN Wonderer wasn't being serious. At least I don't think he is. Because that's exactly what happened in The Avengers.

Malekith is not under Loki's control.
Nomis1800 - 9/2/2013, 5:02 AM
not impressed
WawelDragon - 9/2/2013, 6:47 AM
It seems Volstagg will play huge role in this one...
JonStarkgaryen - 9/2/2013, 7:58 AM
@martian... The Game of Thrones hype is warranted and after this movie I bet you check it out....
TheAbomination - 9/2/2013, 8:05 AM
They need to hurry up and put one of these in my theater.
ezio619 - 9/2/2013, 8:27 AM
i think for many people the trailers of thor have been ok, so i think thats why they will like it more because the iron man 3 trailers were great and thats why alot of people were dissapointed by it, hopefully thor is good, if not great.
superbatspiderman - 9/2/2013, 9:00 AM
@92Marvel @mgeoff88 - I am pretty sure that Malekith won't be under Loki's control but for the off chance that Marvel wants to throw us another stupid ass plot twist I won't be happy. I doubt that will happen though because Alan Taylor is a much more competent director than Shane Black.
mdwilliamson24 - 9/2/2013, 9:00 AM
I think I was right about Heimdall's armor having a Yggdrasil based design on the breastplate. That is beyond cool if it is indeed.
