The first trailer for Thor: The Dark World is now online. There’s an immediately apparent difference in tone (at least in this trailer, if not the film) than the first Thor — darker, less silly, hints at Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster getting taken captive (or killed)… Since Gwen Stacy is almost certainly dying in Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Pepper Potts’s days look numbered in Iron Man 3, are we going to get a dead-girlfriend hat trick? Two out of three? Place your bets, folks.
The big-budget sequel stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins. Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) from a script by Christopher Yost, Christopher Markus, and Stephen McFeely. The film hits theaters on November 8, 2013.
