Sneak Peek more new spoiler images and story details from director Alan Taylor ("The Sopranos") and producer Craig Kyle, plus all the footage released to date from "Thor: The Dark World", to be distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
"Asgard at the beginning of the first film was at a time of peace," said Kyle. "Now our guys have been fighting for over a year, constantly. It's a time of war. When the 'Bifrost' was broken at the end of the first film, 'Odin' had to conjure a lot of dark energy and go through a lot of personal sacrifice to try and get his son back to Earth. And it was a one-shot deal.
"If Thor didn't succeed, without the 'Tesseract' he couldn't have got back again. And in our film, finally the Bifrost has been rebuilt, but during that time, when the cops were largely cut off from the rest of the universe, you had miscreants that came in from outside the Nine Realms, pillaging and destroying and causing havoc. So that's what our guys have been doing now - trying to put all these fires out across the Nine Realms."
Cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba and Christopher Eccleston, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins:
"...as he battles to save Earth and all the 'Nine Realms' from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself.
"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..."
