The theatrical opening of “Thor: The Dark World” is only a week away, but for Marvel fans who can’t stand the wait, here’s a sneak peek.

Hero Complex has compiled 75 images of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman and more in scenes from the film for your viewing pleasure. The movie stills also offer a glimpse of Asgard, the otherworldly home of Thor (Hemsworth), Loki (Hiddleston) and ruler Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Asgard, of course, was featured in the first film, 2011′s Kenneth Branagh-directed “Thor,” but is greatly expanded in the sequel.

The images also reveal Svartalfheim, home to the Dark Elves, including the villainous Malekith, portrayed in the film by Christopher Eccleston, and Algrim, a.k.a. Kurse, played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

The film is directed by Alan Taylor (“Game of Thrones”) and, in addition to Hemsworth, Hiddleston, Hopkins, Eccleston and Akinnuoye-Agbaje, stars Portman as astrophysicist Jane Foster, Kat Dennings (Jane’s research assistant Darcy Lewis), Stellan Skarsgård (Eric Selvig, who survived the events of “The Avengers”), Idris Elba (Heimdall) and Jaimie Alexander (lady warrior and Thor’s childhood friend Sif).

Also returning in the sequel are the Warriors Three: Ray Stevenson as Volstagg, Tadanobu Asano as Hogun and Zachary Levi replacing “Once Upon a Time” star Josh Dallas as Fandral.

As an added bonus, moviegoers who see 3-D or IMAX 3-D screenings of “Thor: The Dark World,” which opens Nov. 8, will see roughly five minutes of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Will you be seeing “Thor” opening night? Let us know in the comments.
