Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World is one of the autumn movies that we are most excited about here at FemaleFirst as Chris Hemsworth returns to the title role.

It was back in 2011 that this character blasted onto the big screen and since then he has saved the world and dominated the box office as part of the Avengers.

But this October the second Thor movie is set to drop and it promises to be bigger and better than the original - which will be some going as I was a huge fan of the first film.

If you are as excited about the film as we are then we have the first trailer for you to check out:

Chris Hemsworth is not the only familiar face to look out for as Natalie Portman is back as Jane Foster while Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba and Kat Dennings are all also back.

Of course no Thor movie would be complete without Tom Hiddleston and he will, once again, be taking on the role of Loki.

But there is one big new addition to the cast list to watch out for as Christopher Eccleston has joined the franchise.

The British actor takes over the role of Malekith in the movie who is set to reek havoc on Thor's world.

While there is plenty of familiarity on the cast list it is all change in the director's chair as Alan Taylor has taken over the reins from Kenneth Branagh.

Taylor has made a name from himself in recent years as a director of Game of Thrones but this will be his first big screen project in ten years.

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 Avengers Assemble, 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.

Iron Man 3 has kicked off Phase Two of Marvel movies this week and Thor: The Dark World will continue it in fine style.

    It is a shame that Kenneth Branagh is not in the director's chair again but it will be interesting to see where Alan Taylor will take the franchise.

    I love Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston in the the roles of Thor and Loki and I can't wait to see their relationship develop further.
