Thor: The Dark World follows Thor as he attempts to save Earth and all the Nine Realms. The film once again stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster.
Portman recently confirmed that a third Thor film is probably happening. When E! News mentioned to the actress that her co-star, Anthony Hopkins, wants a third installment she replied, "I think they are going to make Thor 3 so I think Anthony will be pleased."
The actress also recently praised her co-star Hemsworth when she covered the November 2013 issue of Marie Claire.
"Chris is, like, one of the greatest people in Hollywood," she told the magazine. "He's the kind of actor who's so charismatic, he must be tired when he goes home."
