Don't worry, comic nerds. While the next few months may be filled with movies that lean more heavily on themes and characters and awards season-type subject matter, you'll still have your comic book panel-driven kicks catered to. Marvel will be swinging hard in a few months with "Thor: The Dark World" and a batch of new pics and a new featurette have arrived for the film.

Thor: The Dark World

Don't worry, comic nerds. While the next few months may be filled with movies that lean more heavily on themes and characters and awards season-type subject matter, you'll still have your comic book panel-driven kicks catered to. Marvel will be swinging hard in a few months with "Thor: The Dark World" and a batch of new pics and a new featurette have arrived for the film.

So what will this one be all about? Here's producer Craig Kyle's rather lengthy explanation that he gave to Empire:

"Asgard at the beginning of the first film was at a time of peace. Now our guys have been fighting for over a year, constantly. It's a time of war. When the Bifrost was broken at the end of the first film, Odin had to conjure a lot of dark energy and go through a lot of personal sacrifice to try and get his son back to Earth. And it was a one-shot deal. If Thor didn't succeed, without the Tesseract he couldn't have got back again. And in our film, finally the Bifrost has been rebuilt, but during that time, when the cops were largely cut off from the rest of the universe, you had miscreants that came in from outside the Nine Realms, pillaging and destroying and causing havoc. So that's what our guys have been doing now - trying to put all these fires out across the Nine Realms."

Uh, okay. At the very least, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will probably be smashing all kinds of things, with his gal Jane (Natalie Portman) by his side. Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgård, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Zachary Levi also feature in the film that opens on November 8th. New pics and a featurette below.
