New Shots Of Hiddleston & Hopkins In THOR: THE DARK WORLD
A series of eye-grabbing new images from the highly anticipated superhero sequel THOR: THE DARK WORLD have been revealed, featuring popular stage and screen stars Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins as well as accomplished actors Idris Elba, Natalie Portman, Rene Russo and Chris Hemsworth.
Hiddleston reprises his role of Loki in the otherworldly, largely space-set film directed by Alan Taylor, with Hemsworth, Hopkins, Elba, Portman and Russo also reclaiming their characters from the mega-hit, Kenneth Branagh-directed first film.
Of note, Hiddleston recently showed up in character - and in full costume - as his nefarious THOR and THE AVENGERS villain during a Comic Con panel with the stars of THOR: THE DARK WORLD and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, to much surprise, as well as ensuing vociferous acclaim and fan fervor around the unexpected event from the fervent audience.
Hiddleston previously starred in Shakespeare's OTHELLO and CYMBELINE onstage, as well as in BBC's THE HOLLOW CROWN film series last year, portraying Prince Hal in HENRY IV Parts 1 and 2 as well as HENRY V and he will take on the title role in a new production of CORIOLANUS later this year, as well, in between his various major film commitments.
The official synopsis for THOR: THE DARK WORLD is as follows: "Thor battles to save all the Nine Realms from a mysterious enemy older than the universe itself. However, a shadowy race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to descend the universe into darkness. Confronted by an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot overcome, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and set out on a dangerous journey that will force him to make the ultimate sacrifice."
