Chris Hemsworth will have to save the Earth again according to the official synopsis for Thor: The Dark World
Walt Disney Studios has released an official synopsis for their upcoming sequel THOR: THE DARK WORLD, which will have Chris Hemsworth returning as the hunky god of thunder and reunite him with his adorable human Jane, played by Natalie Portman. This synopsis isn’t really anything we all didn’t speculate before, but it’s always nice to have confirmation for the upcoming months when more casting news starts to come in (though I don’t think there will be a lot of that since there are so many returning players).
Here’s the official 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.
Directed by Alan Taylor, THOR: THE DARK WORLD will star: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Stellan Skarsgard and Christopher Eccleston. THOR: THE DARK WORLD is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8th, 2013. (Walt Disney Pictures)
