‘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. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor” and ‘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. To defeat an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor sets upon his most dangerous and personal journey yet, forced into an alliance with the treacherous Loki to save not only his people and those he loves… but our universe itself.
The likes of Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Jaimie Alexander (Sif), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Ray Stevenson (Volstagg), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), Rene Russo (Frigga), Tadanobu Asano (Hogun), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), Stellan Skarsgård (Dr. Erik Selvig) and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster) reprise their roles from the first ‘Thor’ film, while Zack Levi plays Fandral, Christopher Eccleston plays the villainous Malekith The Accursed, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje plays Algrim and Kurse.

Playing Thor for the third time now, how is that relationship as an actor to your character? I can imagine your understanding of him and all his quirks deepens every time….?
Chris Hemsworth: Definitely, and I love that. I love playing the character. The trick is each time to find new ways to make the character have some sort of advance or growth from the last one, and not repeat things you’ve already done. And that’s the trick of the director and writer and actor coming together and saying, “What’s the next step? Where are we going to take him?”
Whenever you play a character you’re always trying to find a conflict and think, “What is it that he’s trying to work through?”, as opposed to just being there and being central to the situation. I think you’ve got to make sure the hero is a big catalyst to the resolution, that he’s not just there to step in at the very end and save the day. He has to be proactive throughout, you want a journey. There’s a definite conflict within Thor about where his place was. Was it with Jane on Earth or was it in Asgard, and where does his allegiance lie? Also, he’s beginning to understand the darker sides of what it truly means to be king and the burden of the throne.

Although all the prints may not look the same, they still fit together as a series. They were all illustrated the way we thought fit the character, and story best. The most exciting part about this series is that as we created each one, we had no idea what it was going to look like. We tried to follow the story of each character as much as possible. With each illustration, we only tell you as much as you need to know to figure out who they are, and what their story is.”
