THOR: THE DARK WORLD Plot Details Revealed

Given the success of The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises, you better believe that the superhero genre will be sticking around for quite a while. There have been some news leaks from Captain America 2 and Iron Man 3, but the other Marvel movie, Thor 2 has been eerily quiet on the details.

Well not anymore! They just released the official plot synopsis, shedding light on what to expect from the God of Thunder sequel.

Official Synopsis: 


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.

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 and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Thor: The Dark World is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne (credit not final) and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (credit not final) 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 Motion Pictures.


I’m happy to officially hear that Natalie Portman‘s character will return, after skipping the festivities in The Avengers. Also of note, Zachary Levi (NBC’s Chuck)  will be joining the cast, replacing one of the Asgardian roles from the first film.
