Sneak Peek a new movie poster, plus images and synopsis from Marvel Comics' "Thor: The Dark World Prelude", revealing story spoilers, during and after the events of the movies "Thor" and "The Avengers", leading up to the new film:
"...following the end of 'Thor', the realms sense a change due to the destruction of the 'Bifrost'. 'Asgard' is cut off from the other realms.
"'Jotunheim' is still damaged, 'Nidavellir' fears the dwarven forces will be overtaken without Asgard's protection, and the 'Badoon' and 'Maurauders' mobilize to attack 'Vanaheim'. This concerns Thor, who also notes that 'Hogun' comes from that realm.
"'Heimdall' notes that the destruction of the Bifrost continues to shift the balance of power across the nine realms and into the worlds beyond 'Yggdrasil'."
"Thor realizes that by saving Jotunheim, he has weakened the other realms. 'Odin' indicates this has brought the universe closer to 'Ragnarok', as a guard tells Odin that 'Tyr' has requested to speak with him.
"Meanwhile, 'Jane Foster' continues to search for Thor and Asgard from New Mexico. 'Erik Selvig' appears affected by the influence of 'Loki'. Jane attemps to open the Bifrost, but she is unsuccessful, because Thor broke it. Jane feels that something has happened to Thor, but won't give upon him.
"One year later before 'The Avengers' movie, 'Frigga' sees 'Loki' in a vision. She speaks to him, then informs Odin and the others that Loki is alive and that he is planning something involving the 'Tesseract'.
"Also, as depicted in "The Avengers," Loki appears on Earth at the 'Joint Dark Energy Mission Labs'. 'Nick Fury', 'Hawkeye' and 'Erik Selvig' are present. Heimdall is aware and informs Thor and Odin.
"Jane Foster remains in her lab in 'Smith Motors' in New Mexico with her assistant 'Darcy Lewis'. She receives a call from 'S.H.I.E.L.D.', as 'Agent Phil Coulson' asks Jane to consult in Tromso, Norway. Jane hesitates, but Lewis reminds her that it's been a year since Thor's departure.
"Back on Asgard, Odin tells Thor that he can go to 'Midgard'. Thor is ready to leave, and worries over Odin's health, while both 'Iron Man' and 'Captain America' confront Loki in Stuttgart, Germany. Thor travels to Earth via Odin's dark energy. The travel appears to be physically demanding unlike Bifrost travel. He is then seen in pain and on his back, fallen to Earth with 'Mjolnir' beside him, as storms rage in the background..."
