In this thrilling installment, Thor finds himself in a battle to preserve balance and order throughout the vast cosmos. However, his mission takes a dark turn with the resurgence of an ancient race, led by the ruthless Malekith, who seeks to envelop the universe in eternal darkness. As the shadow of chaos looms over even the mighty realm of Asgard and its ruler, Odin, Thor must confront a foe more powerful than any he has ever faced before.
