From Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures comes the sequel to the popular 2011 comic book based film starring Chris Hemsworth as the Asgardian God of Thunder, as well as Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston.
Thor: The Dark World is directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) based off a screenplay by Robert Rodat and Don Payne. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Zachery Levi, Ray Stevenson and Christopher Eccleston as the Dark Elf Malekith The Accursed.
Hiddleston, who will once again reprise his role as Loki in the upcoming film, recently offered a few words about his affinity for the fan-favorite villain and his excitement to begin working on the superhero sequel:
"He is a combination of mercurial intellectual ability, emotional ambiguity, rakish charm, charisma and provocative wit. He has a wicked inclination to mischief, underneath which is a well of spiritual pain. Both these aspects are central to his depth as a character: his unashamed and perverse delight in creating chaos; and his capacity for raw emotional expression...Underneath the steely cold veneer of his trickster charm is a certain vulnerability and sensitivity – the wounded fragility of an outcast brother and son. His mind IS a box of cats though! But I love him.
"I don’t want to give too much away, but I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed. Alan Taylor’s vision of 'Thor 2' is utterly brilliant. The journey continues in the most epic dimension and proportion imaginable. It’s very, very exciting.”
Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures have scheduled Thor: The Dark World for theatrical release November 8th, 2013.
