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

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.

Extra Tidbit: Which are you most looking forward to next year; Thor: The Dark World or Iron Man 3?
