Thor and Malekith go head-to-head in the latest set photos from Thor: The Dark World

The cast and crew of the upcoming Marvel Studios superhero sequel Thor: The Dark World have been filming on location in Greenwich this past week and following on from our first look at Christopher Eccleston’s (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) new bad guy Malekith the Accursed a couple of days back, we now have some spy shots of the Dark Elf going up against Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder courtesy of SplashNewsOnline and Dan Mumford:

And here’s a set video of the two in action:

Thor: The Dark World is directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) and reunites Hemsworth with Thor stars Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Idris Elba, Stellan Skarsgård, Ray Stevenson, Jaimie Alexander and Tadanobu Asano, while franchise newcomers include Zachary Levi (Chuck) as Fandral and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost) as Algrim the Strong, a.k.a Curse.
