Marvel's Thor: The Dark World gets a full synopsis

10.12.2012

We've seen plenty of kick ass set pics from the upcoming THOR: THE DARK WORLD, but haven't heard much officially from their camp.  Today, Disney released the full synopsis for the film, which is currently shooting in England under the helm of Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor.  We've heard rumblings about this being a much bigger adventure that would encompass more of the nine realms than the first film and it appears that much is true.  Overall, I get the feeling of a cosmos-crossing adventure that will eclipse the struggles in THOR.  And, I'm totally down with that.

Here's the 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.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD is set to drop the hammer on November 8, 2013 and suddenly I'm getting damned excited about two Marvel movies coming out next year.  Hell yeah.

this is the problem with the avengers

so Thor was sent back to earth to protect the humans and the planet itself, along with all the other heroes. Now he will be facing (by decription) a much more fierce and dangerous foe, but for some weird reason all the people he helped save wont be helping him. How do you reconcile that? Same with iron Man and capt Amer movies in future. Their enemies will have to be weak and only able to hurt them, bc if they have the possibility of taking over the world or universe why wouldnt th rest of them

Logically it sucks and its bad storytelling, but they are fun great movies that you just check ur brain at the door (as opposed to say a drak knight movie) and dont pay too much attention to those things called logic and continuity.

oh come on, I'm sick and tired of people saying Marvel movies you check your brain at the door and the Nolan Batman movies are so complex, deep and thought provoking. Please. They're really not and yes the Marvel movies have their flaws, but so do Nolan's Batman movies, and that includes logic and continuity as well mind you. Anyways last I heard Chris Evans stated that he was talking to Hemsworth and producers, directors, writers, etc. about how they would make it make sense that they aren't

Anyways last I heard Chris Evans stated that he was talking to Hemsworth and producers, directors, writers, etc. about how they would make it make sense that they aren't there for eachother in the solo movies, so just stay tuned, I'm pretty sure they've thought about it (we can only hope).

No, he just got hurt. He helped close the portal by remembering he put in a fail-safe mcguffin.

Hehe, if you close up on Thor's face with those three guys in the background, I would have thought it's a floating-head poster.

Am I the only one who hoped for an interquel between Thor 1 and The Avengers?
You know, the backstory about how Thor could come back to Earth?

I'm thinking it'll be explained in Thor 2. If it doesn't then maaaaaan that is some lazy ass writing in The Avengers

In the Avengers Loki asked Thor, "How much dark energy did the All Father have to conjour to send you here?" It was a throwaway line but Im guessing the filmmakers will just leave it at that. Hopefully tho they will use the Cosmic Cube to repair the Bifrost or something. The sequel needs more Heimdall.

I say thee HELMET!

Why cant Thor wear his iconic Helmet at least part of the time? In the first film and Avengers Loki donned his prominently why cant Thor? I love the movies regardless but that Helmet would just complete the character for me. He has it in the comics in almost all of his appearances. Come hither ye movie makers and make right with the Odinson!!

I heard somewhere that in the first movie it looked awkward on Chris Hemsworth in the screen-tests and it ended up being scrapped.

I'm looking forward to seeing Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins' tagteaming of Odin.

THOR: The Dark World for sure. Upon seeing all the movies multiple times I actually think Thor is the best one out of them all, largely thanks to Kenneth Branagh, though the first Iron Man is right behind it for me. Looking forward to both though, but Thor's sequel gets me most excited.

I'm more excited for Iron Man 3. I thought Thor was the weakest of the Marvel films, but I still thought it was good. With the sequel being set in the 9 realms and not Earth, I think it could be an improvement over the first film.
