Hungry for some satisfying Thor news? Here's Disney's latest proclamation of just where the God of Thunder's hammer strikes in the upcoming 2013 sequel.

We've seen the Bourne Wood battle set pics swarming with armored aliens and speculated on fates and foes until the Dark Elves dance. Now the good folks at Disney have delivered unto us the official story details for Thor: The Dark World, ending the reign of rampant rumors.

Have a look!

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.

Presented by Marvel Studios, Thor: The Dark World is directed by Game Of Thrones' Alan Taylor and invades theaters on November 8, 2013. It stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
