Second Thor: The Dark World Trailer Has Landed

Citizens of Midgard, brace yourselves. As a part of YouTube’s Geek Week, the full Thor: The Dark World trailer has made it across the Bifrost to our shores.

Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) third adventure on the big screen sees the Son of Odin battling to save the Nine Realms from a dark and powerful race led by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) intent on destroying every world from Jotunheim to Asgard itself. With the help of disgraced adopted brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), physicist and love-interest Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and his fearless Asgardian allies, Thor faces his biggest challenge yet as he attempts to prevent the malicious Malekith from utter domination and destruction. In comic lore Malekith is the ruler of the Dark Elves and has dealt with Loki in the past, and in the film could be the reason Thor needs his sarcastic sibling’s skill set.

Brother, hold my hammer, my arms are Thor.

There’s a lot for fans to look forward to; the turbulent partnership between brothers is sure to keep a tension throughout and maintain strong character-based themes, and the multi-world threat allows for the spectacular action sequences that are teased in the trailer. Also the appearance of Christopher Eccleston in the Marvel Cinematic Universe can only mean good things. The film is directed by Alan Taylor (The Sopranos, Game of Thrones) and is sure to thrive on his grasp of both fantasy and human relationships, so expect big things from the next instalment in Marvel’s master plan. 

Thor: The Dark World is scheduled for release on the 30th of October in the UK.
