New Images & Plot Details Revealed for 'Thor: The Dark World'

The teaser trailer is about to debut but some new information is unveiled first.

Last Friday Disney released a teaser poster for Thor: The Dark World and mentioned a new trailer will be released on Tuesday exclusively on iTunes Movie Trailers. Rather than make us wait until then, they have released a couple new images via USA Today this morning along with some plot details.

The poster did list Natalie Portman right after Chris Hemsworth so we can imagine Jane Foster will have a significant role. In one of the images released, it appears she actually makes a trip to Asgard.

In the article, there is mention of Thor visiting Midgard to help his friends in The Avengers but didn't take the time to call Jane (of course there was mention of moving her some place safe when the craziness started). While she may not be too happy with him, it turns out her life is in danger and Thor has to bring her to Asgard to keep her safe.

The action in the movie will also see moments of doubt as well as a love triangle with Jaimie Alexander returning to the role of Sif. But of course the real trouble will be from the Dark Elf Malekith, played by Christopher Eccleston. If that was bad enough, Thor is going to have to seek help from his incarcerated half-brother Loki.

We'll have to see what the trailer has to show tomorrow. Thor: The Dark World opens in theaters on November 8, 2013.
