Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is reunited with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) in one of three new clips Marvel released from “Thor: The Dark World,” the new superhero sequel due in theaters Nov. 8.

The other snippets from the movie, directed by Alan Taylor (“Game of Thrones”) offer a closer look at Christopher Eccleston’s villain, the Dark Elf Malekith, and a brief chance to see Jaimie Alexander’s warrior Sif in action — that is until Thor turns up on the battlefield.

The new film promises a slightly grittier take on the adventures of the god of Thunder, who, in the course of the story, is forced to form an uneasy alliance with his treacherous brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in order to defeat Malekith’s plot to plunge the universe into darkness.

On the set of the film last year, Marvel movie chief Kevin Feige said the new film took a more practical approach with the fight scenes and the locations — “Thor: The Dark World” traveled to Iceland and shot across England, hoping to lend authenticity to the sci-fi inflected adventure.

“When you have Hemsworth looking astounding but being in a big red cape and a big outfit and Eccleston in this very extreme makeup and spectacular costume design but in these real environments, suddenly they seem more real, the entire fantasy that we’re asking the audience to buy into feels more real,” Feige said.

Check out some of the early footage from the movie below, and click through the gallery above for shots of Hemsworth from the new film, 2011′s “Thor” and out of character.
