Battles come and battles go, but it's not a worthy melee unless Thor (Chris Hemsworth) comes in and takes control of the situation with his Mjölnir hammer. Watch an intense clip from The Avengers member's second solo adventure, Marvel's Thor: The Dark World!
Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Rene Russo, Anthony Hopkins -- and yes, Tom Hiddleston as Loki -- are all back for the sequel, this time directed by Alan Taylor. In Thor: The Dark World finds the classic Marvel Comics character battling to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself -- an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith (played by Christopher Eccleston) looking to plunge the universe back into darkness. In order to defeat his powerful enemy, Thor must forge an alliance with the treacherous Loki to save the people he loves -- and the universe itself.
In theaters November 8, Marvel's Thor: The Dark World also stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander.
