THOR (CHRIS HEMSWORTH): Thor Odinson is the Prince and future King of Asgard, an advanced alien civilization. Once arrogant and impulsive, Thor was banished to Earth by his father, Odin. The experience taught him humility, but put him into conflict with his adopted brother Loki. After saving the Earth from Loki’s schemes alongside the Avengers, Thor now faces a new enemy — one that threatens to destroy everything he cares for.

LOKI (TOM HIDDLESTON): Loki Laufeyson is the adopted brother of Thor, raised alongside him from birth by Odin. Upon learning his true lineage, Loki sought to conquer both Asgard and Earth but was stopped by Thor and the Avengers. Still arrogant and unrepentant, Loki sits in the dungeons of Asgard, with only his mother Frigga seeing any hope for him. But when an ancient enemy seeks the destruction of Asgard, Loki finds his loyalties tested.



JANE FOSTER (NATALIE PORTMAN): Jane Foster is an astrophysicist who met Thor when he was exiled to Earth by his father. The two had an intense attraction in the short time they were together, and through Jane, Thor learned the value of humility and the heroic nature of humanity. After being separated since Thor’s first visit to Earth, Jane has moved on with her life… but now finds herself pulled into Thor’s world once again by an ancient evil.

DR. ERIK SELVIG (STELLAN SKARSGÅRD): Dr. Erik Selvig is a fellow astrophysicist and mentor to Jane Foster and was with her when Thor arrived on Earth. Selvig’s mind was possessed by Loki, who forced him to aid in his invasion of Earth. Loki’s mind control was lifted after Thor and the Avengers defeated him, but Selvig’s mental state has deteriorated due to Loki’s influence. Selvig now finds himself at the center of cosmic events once again as two worlds collide.



DARCY LEWIS (KAT DENNINGS): Darcy Lewis is Jane Foster’s intern, a quirky but quick-thinking poli-sci major who found herself in the middle of Earth’s first contact with an alien civilization. And while she doesn’t always understand everything that’s happening around her, she doesn’t hesitate to speak up about it. When Jane discovers an ancient cosmological event affecting the Earth, it’s Darcy who has to pick up the slack when Jane disappears.

HEIMDALL (IDRIS ELBA): Heimdall is the sentinel of Asgard with the ability to see and hear events galaxies away. He stands at his post in Asgard’s Observatory, watching over the cosmos and protecting Asgard from any and all intruders. As one of Odin’s most trusted warriors, Heimdall is beyond reproach… but now Asgard faces an enemy that even Heimdall cannot see.



MALEKITH (CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON): Malekith is the cruel leader of the Dark Elves, a race of beings said to be older than the universe itself. Born into darkness, Malekith led his people in a war against the Asgardians, but they were thought to have been destroyed thousands of years ago. Malekith survived, however, and now seeks to transform our universe, plunging it back into eternal darkness.

ALGRIM/KURSE (ADEWALE AKINNUOYE-AGBAJE): Algrim/Kurse is Malekith’s trusted and loyal lieutenant. He fought at Malekith’s side during the initial war with Asgard thousands of years ago, but now their time is running out. Algrim is called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice and is transformed into the monstrous Kurse. With a new and terrifying power, Kurse seeks to destroy Thor and Asgard in preparation for Malekith’s arrival.



VOLSTAGG (RAY STEVENSON): Volstagg makes up one third of the Warriors Three, Asgard’s greatest and most loyal warriors. Large and imposing, Volstagg’s skill with an axe is matched only by his appetite. With Fandral and Hogun, Volstagg has fought alongside Thor on many adventures across the cosmos. And while the stories of his exploits are often elaborated, he’s a hero to the Asgardian people.

FANDRAL (ZACHARY LEVI): Fandral is Asgard’s finest swordsman, which serves him well as a member of the Warriors Three. Alongside Volstagg and Hogun, Fandral fights to protect Asgard from any and all foes. When not using his sword to smite his enemies, Fandral uses his charm and good looks to woo the ladies.

HOGUN (TADANOBU ASANO): Hogun, often known as Hogun The Grim, is the deadliest of the Warriors Three. With both spiked mace and blade, Hogun defends Asgard as well as his own home, the peaceful planet of Vanaheim. Though he rarely speaks, his loyalty to Thor is legendary… as is his disapproval of Fandral and Volstagg’s frivolous natures.



SIF (JAIMIE ALEXANDER): Sif is one of Asgard’s most formidable warriors. Skilled and fearless, she’s a trusted and faithful ally to Thor. During his banishment, Sif saw Loki’s treachery and risked all to return Thor to Asgard…but on Earth, she saw that she had lost Thor’s heart to another—the human Jane Foster. Now at the end of a long campaign to free the Nine Realms from strife, Sif seeks to rekindle her relationship with Thor.



FRIGGA (RENE RUSSO): Frigga is wife of Odin and mother of Thor and Loki. The glue that holds the royal family together, Frigga knew that there was more to Odin’s banishment of Thor than met the eye, just as she now sees that there’s more within the villainous Loki than the others see. But when Asgard is attacked, Frigga will fight to defend those that she loves at any cost.

ODIN (ANTHONY HOPKINS): Odin is King of Asgard, Protector of the Nine Realms, and father to Thor and Loki. Odin’s long reign is coming to an end, however, and while disappointed with Thor’s arrogance at first, he now sees that Thor is ready for the throne. But when an ancient enemy returns, Odin questions Thor’s allegiances… for if Thor is to be king, he must choose duty over his heart’s desires.





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.

Looks like Loki hands Jane over to Malekith... God of Mischief indeed.
NovaCorpsFan - 9/4/2013, 12:34 PM
Also, looks like Thor is lying at Malekith's feet.
didich - 9/4/2013, 12:37 PM

3 Things to Take From This:

1. "...a race of beings said to be older than the universe itself"

So that dialogue in the trailer and the movie description about an ancient evil was actually talking about the Dark Elves themselves, and not Surtur/Galactus/Thanos/whatever else people were coming up with.

2. "Sif seeks to rekindle her relationship with Thor."

Though they've downplayed it in interviews, it seems that Sif's relationship with Jane will, in fact, be as 'competition'.

3. "Algrim is called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice and is transformed into the monstrous Kurse."

Hopefully this is something that happens in the movie and not before it. It would be great to watch his character evolution.
aztecRaingod - 9/4/2013, 12:51 PM
Sorry Hulk Fan Boys, but Kurse would whip Jade Jaws ass.
kinghulk - 9/4/2013, 12:55 PM
havenless- i think it will happen in the film cos we saw a poster that had the actor who plays kurse in it as a dark elf.
aztecRaingod - 9/4/2013, 12:56 PM
Also, since when does Loki have telekinetic powers..?
Ocelot - 9/4/2013, 12:59 PM
@Havenless

"So that dialogue in the trailer and the movie description about an ancient evil was actually talking about the Dark Elves themselves, and not Surtur/Galactus/Thanos/whatever else people were coming up with."

Kevin Feige confirmed long ago that the Dark force are in the fact the Dark Elves who SPOILER:



Malekith wants to undo the "big bang" that started the universe.

I'm gonna assume that whatever he needs ends of getting trapped inside of Jane.
knocturnalzen10 - 9/4/2013, 1:06 PM
@ ocelot

thx alot u bastard lol sounds like a pretty accurate synopsis -_-
arrrrrrrrrrrrrrruuuuuuuggggggghhhhhhhhhh
CherryBomb - 9/4/2013, 1:07 PM
Awwww Frigga dies!
:(
Wallymelon - 9/4/2013, 1:07 PM
this is what is really going to put this phase into perspective. iron man 3 was a good cap off to the first phase and puts certain things into motion for phase 2. but i feel this is the movie that will really put us on the right track and from this we can start to really specualte on what the plan is up till age of ultron.
jlabatman - 9/4/2013, 1:08 PM
Bring on Enchantress!
isee - 9/4/2013, 1:10 PM
I'm failry certain Jane will die in TDW, as will Loki in a sacrifical, redemptive manner.

Then, Thor is the one that is going to die in Age of Ultron, sacrificing himself for the team.

Then in Thor 3, Thor will find himself dead, in Hel, where he will reunite with Loki, and they will face off with Hela and her hordes to find Jane and all of them get back to the realm of the living.
aztecRaingod - 9/4/2013, 1:12 PM
@isee. Yea OK, thats exactly how its going down...


isee - 9/4/2013, 1:13 PM
@Aztec
Even though sarcastic, I appreciate the Jennifer Lawrence gif, so hot :D
isee - 9/4/2013, 1:15 PM
And I'm not saying that will happen, but I'd like it to lol
Bodwulf - 9/4/2013, 1:17 PM
Great character synopsis! Thanks Freshman you always bring the goods!
Havenless - 9/4/2013, 1:30 PM
@ManOfReal

So by saying "...or GTFO!", you're essentially saying that if she doesn't want to do it or her contract won't allow it, they should never make a Wonder Woman movie? That's a pretty bold statement there.
Ramiel - 9/4/2013, 1:35 PM
Odin - 9/4/2013, 1:35 PM
@didich I shall.
Ocelot - 9/4/2013, 1:41 PM
Will "Hel" even be like it is in the comics, they've gone out of their way in the films to make the 9 realms just a bunch of planets that aren't in the Solar System. Wouldn't surprise me if they just make "Hel" an empty barren world that's filled with nasty creatures. I also dont expect Surtur to be a demon if he's ever used, he'll just be a "creature" like the frost giants rather than an entity like Dormammu.
RyGoR - 9/4/2013, 2:45 PM
Well Frigga sounds like she's gonna die........they weren't very subtle with that one......


AT ANY COST




B!tch please that's foreshadowin' like a motha focka

:)
Pending - 9/4/2013, 3:18 PM
"Sif seeks to rekindle her relationship with Thor." That would've been a nice thing to explore in the first one, now it just seems forced on to this one.
marvel72 - 9/4/2013, 3:20 PM
