As promised, Marvel‘s god of thunder makes a return appearance to Earth in this just-released trailer for Thor: The Dark World. Packed with otherworldly battles, new and familiar faces, and legions of new enemies, this first tease of the sequel to Thor picks right where the events of The Avengers wrap up, with Thor having returned home to Asgard. But, this time, Thor will be swinging his mighty and gigantic hammer in the face of a race of Dark Elves, led by the evil Malekith, who try to attack earth. The trailer teases that Loki may also return to the fight, but by the end of the clip Marvel leaves a lot of room for speculation on whether or not he prevails. There’s a lot of time for you to draw your own conclusions before Thor: The Dark World hammers its way back into theaters on November 8. In the meantime, check out the first trailer below.
