Full trailer for Thor: The Dark World: watch now

Thor faces Dark Elves and a mischievous Loki

Thor: The Dark World has released a full-length trailer, giving fans worldwide the chance to see some of the material that was shown to the crowds in Hall H at Comic-Con 2013.

The sequel is the next step in Marvel’s Phase 2 masterplan, picking up with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) after the events of The Avengers. The first thing on the Asgardian prince’s agenda seems to be healing the rift with his Earthbound love, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Given that he didn’t pay her a visit while back on Earth to save New York from destruction, we wouldn’t be surprised if he was still in the doghouse…

As we see in the trailer, Thor takes Jane for a tour of his homeland (with the film set to explore more of the mythology’s Nine Realms), where she gets rather fetchingly decked out in traditional robes.

Their reunion doesn’t exactly run smoothly though, with Thor having to contend with the uprising of the Dark Elves, led by Christopher Eccleston’s Malekith. Wreaking havoc on Earth and in Asgard, they look to be a formidable force.

And if that wasn’t enough to deal with, the hammer-wielding hero also forms an uneasy alliance with Loki (Tom Hiddleston), his adopted brother, who's currently languishing in a glass cell after, y’know, trying to take over Earth in The Avengers. Seems Thor needs his tricksy bro’s help after all, and the final shot of the trailer suggests that he might have misplaced his trust.

Watch the full trailer for Thor: The Dark World now:

Pretty epic, huh? And it looks like Hiddleston might be stealing scenes again (that exchange with Jane being particularly delicious).

Co-starring Anthony Hopkins, Jaimie Alexander and Kat Dennings, Thor: The Dark World opens in the UK on 30 October 2013, before landing in the US on 8 November 2013.

      @spid2411 - if you don't like don't watch simples but it's hard to argue with record box office success under their belts

      Although box office takings are never an indication of quality, i thinks its fair to say that the marvel movies that have been released over the past few years (2008 IM & onwards) have been pretty good, this trailer looks AWESOME for the record and soooo much better than the first trailer, im very excited to see it n as per usual Spid the rectum has looked out intentionally for a popular movie / genre post to slate as to only get attention, so to you I say only this Be careful as your hate will only consume you.... the rest of us? shall just ignore you hahaha Thor 2? Yeeeeaaahhhhhhh XMX

      Looks like a lot more fun than the dull boring first one. You can clearly see Branaghs absence.

      The first Thor is easily the second best movie to come out of Marvel studios.

      Hey Marvelboy - first of all you quote the f*****g Meerkat advert line "simples" - that's sad. Secondly, Grown Ups 2 did well at the box office. Titanic did well at the box office. And they were s**te movies for the brain dead. If the best you can argue is f*****g box office takings then you simply have no argument. "Simples". ps I take it you actual work for that company? Quoting box office as somehow justification for such mainstream banality means you must be a Marvel corporate boy.
