Time to put the hammer down as the Thor: The Dark World trailer has arrived

Yesterday, Entertainment Tonight had our very first peek at the trailer for Thor: The Dark World. The footage that was shown on ET did reveal that the trailer description that leaked last week was in fact true. This time around instead of reading what the trailer is like, we finally get to SEE what the trailer looks like. It’s as epic as you can imagine, and the voiceovers by both Sir Anthony Hopkins and Christopher Eccleston fit perfectly as well. So what are you waiting for? Check it out below!

The trailer has given us the first taste of what the plot is going to be. So far we know Malekith and his army will invade the Earth, and we expect Jane Foster and Loki to be key contributors to the battle against Malekith. Also expect a love triangle to brew between Jane Foster and Lady Sif over the affection of Thor. Another thing one can expect, which I’m very excited about, is the epic battles and the journey that await Thor. Thor will traverse the nine realms and encounter epic battles in his quest to defeat Malekith, and with Alan Taylor at the helm I expect for the journey to be very majestic.

One thing I’ve noticed about the upcoming Phase Two films is that most of them have to do with breaking our heroes down and rebuilding themselves to defeat a foe that has outmatched them. You have The Mandarin breaking down Tony Stark in Iron Man 3, and now you have Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) putting the beat down on Thor. I assume that all this will lead up to The Avengers 2 and Thanos, where the audience will believe that our heroes can overtake Thanos (since they defeated their most personal and biggest threat), yet Thanos will just wipe the floor with everyone. This will give an audience a sense of helplessness for the characters involved.

Marvels “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 Marvels “Thor” and “Marvels 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.

Thor: The Dark World hammers into theaters November 8th, 2013.
