Marvel Studios have released a new trailer to the upcoming Thor: The Dark World film, based on some of the new footage shown last month at San Diego Comic-Con.

The sequel to the 2011 comic-to-film adaptation, the film brings back Chris Hemsworth as the titular hero as he faces off against supervillain Malekith. Here’s the official synopsis:

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 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. 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.

Directed by Alan Taylor, Thor: The Dark World is slated for US release on November 8th.
