Thor: The Dark World opens on November 8th and the first trailer is set it hit later this week. Today, we’ve got a couple new pics from the film, including one of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman).

In addition to the photos, a couple bits of info came out during some interviews with Kevin Feige and Hemsworth about the movie.

First, here’s what Feige had to say about the Thor/ Sif/ Jane Foster love story in the second film:

“It’s superhero action, but it’s the familiar territory of a love triangle where the parents think your girlfriend is wrong for you,” says Feige. “That’s how the best of these movies work.”

Here’s what Hemsworth had to say about his relationship with Loki in the movie:
“Needing Loki’s help turns everything on its head,” says Hemsworth. “And it allows us to explore the underlying complexities of their relationship. It really ends up being a kind of chess match.”

Also starring in the film are Tom Hiddleston, Christopher Eccleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins.

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.
