Thor The Dark World Natalie Portman and Chris Hemworth

As promised, the trailer for ‘Thor: The Dark World’ is now online and it doesn’t disappoint!

Playing ahead of screenings of ‘Iron Man 3’, the trailer depicts is a very different film from its predecessor as well as a bigger and darker outing for the Norse god.

‘Thor: The Dark World’ picks up after ‘The Avengers’ and finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) returning to Earth to bring Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) to Asgard to keep her safe, though there is a glimpse of Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) who doesn’t seem too happy with the arrangement. We also get a snippet of Christopher Eccleston as Makleith, leader of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim. Best part? At the end we get to see what became of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) after Thor returned him to their realm after his failed shenanigans in ‘The Avengers.’

We’re pretty excited to see where this film will take us! Let us know what you think as you check out the first trailer for ‘Thor: The Dark World’ below!
