Marvel Studios has released the first film clip from “Thor: The Dark World,” which features Loki (Tom Hiddleston) sitting in a jail cell, while his step-brother, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), comes offering him a temporary release in exchange for his help to escape Asgard and seek vengeance on their newest common enemy, Malekith (Christopher Eccleston).
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. To defeat an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor sets upon his most dangerous and personal journey yet, forced into an alliance with the treacherous Loki to save not only his people and those he loves…but our universe itself.
The upcoming sequel also stars Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
