The first trailer for Thor: The Dark World has arrived, and it asks the big question, “What will Thor sacrifice?”

Also – Loki.

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. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,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.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery ” #83 in August, 1962.

    This I like. Although I do kind of get this Chronicles of Narnia vibe in some of the scenes. I guess this is because two of the writers wrote those movies, and none of them were very good. Though they also wrote Captain American: TFA and that was pretty great. Thor’s one of my favorite superhero’s, and I loved the first movie. I have high hopes for this.

    I was super-excited watching this— until I heard Loki’s voice. He’s been a major player in two movies already, let’s give him a rest. Nothing against the character or the actor, it just feels like too much in too short a time.

    That said, I’m still mega-excited, which is only two steps below super-excited.
