The latest installment in Phase Two of Marvel Studios' ongoing Cinematic Universe picks up where Thor and The Avengers left off.
When last we saw Thor, he was enjoying shawarma on Earth, but this entry returns him to his celestial home. After the destruction of the Bifrost in the first film, the titular hero finds himself leading the Realm Eternal in a series of skirmishes. When the Dark Elves, an ancient race older than the universe itself, reawaken with a plan to restore existence to darkness, Thor must ally himself with the human Jane Foster and the God of Mischief, Loki, in order to save the day.
The sequel to 2011's Thor sees Chris Hemsworth (Rush) once again hurling Thor's hammer, with Natalie Portman (Black Swan) as Jane and Tom Hiddleston (War Horse) as Loki. Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls) returns as Jane's sidekick Darcy, with Christopher Eccleston (28 Days Later) joining the cast as Malekith the Accursed, leader of the Dark Elves.
At the London press conference promoting Thor: The Dark World, stars Hemsworth, Portman, Hiddleston, Dennings, and Eccleston were joined by director Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) and producer/Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige. Each member of the assembled group shared their enthusiasm for the sequel, discussing the relationship between Thor and Loki, Jane's increased role, improvisation, the film's sense of humor, and making the unbelievable relatable.
