New Thor: The Dark World set photos reveal Malekith the Accursed

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had much in the way of news from the set of Marvel’s upcoming superhero sequel Thor: The Dark World, but with the cast and crew back out on location in London, a new batch of images have emerged giving us our first look at Christopher Eccleston’s (Doctor Who, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) villain Malekith the Accursed, along with his army of Dark Elves. Check them out courtesy of MTV Splash Page

Considering the CG markers on this last image, it’s probably safe to assume this isn’t Malekith’s final look. Still, it gives us a pretty good idea of what Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder will find himself up against in his second solo outing, and speaking of the Mighty one, here’s a couple of shots of him in action over the past couple of days (via SplashNewsOnline)…

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.

Directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), Thor: The Dark World sees Hemsworth joined by fellow returnees Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Jaimie Alexander and Tadanobu Asano. Zachary Levi (Chuck) has replaced Josh Dallas in the role of Fandral, while Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost) is set to line-up alongside Eccleston’s Malekith as another villain, Algrim the Strong, a.k.a Curse.

Thor: The Dark World is scheduled for release on November 8th, 2013.
