The comic book movie sequel sees Thor and Jane Foster unite against an ancient threat.
"Marvel's 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," reads the film's description.
"In the aftermath of Marvel's Thor and Marvel's The Avengers, 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."
Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgard, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins will reprise their roles in Thor 2 alongside newcomers Christopher Eccleston and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
The Alan Taylor-directed Thor: The Dark World will be released on November 8, 2013.
