Thor: The Dark World news

Published

on

According to a recent rumor, the first trailer for “Thor: The Dark World” will appear online on April 2nd. While that’s far from guaranteed, the obvious move would be to show the trailer in front of “Iron Man 3,” on May 3rd.

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. As there is no official trailer to share with you, here is something to keep your Marvel needs underwraps.
