Thor and Malekith Battle in New Shots From The Dark World Set

Just two days after we got our first look at an army of Dark Elves, Splash News has released new photos and video from the London set of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World showing Chris Hemsworth’s thunder god doing battle with Christopher Eccleston’s Malekith the Accursed. See the video and some of the images below, and visit Splash News for more.

Directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), Thor: The Dark World finds the God of Thunder fighting to save the Nine Realms from the vengeful Malekith, who seeks to plunge the universe back into darkness. The film also stars Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins.

Thor: The Dark World opens Nov. 8, 2013.

    Why does he always hold the hammer so high?

  • DocSavatage

    Pure physics.  The higher on the handle he holds it, the more control he has and the ability to make tight turns and returns.  Power would come the lower on the handle he holds the hammer, allowing the hammer head to travel at a faster rate and hit with more damage.  Higher grip for jabs, lower grip for roundhouse hits.  Besides, he’s gotta sell that rubber hammer as being AWESOME!

    Two things here: it looks like Malekith may be more powerful here than in the comics. It’s been a while since I’ve read them, but I don’t think that Malekith in the comics could have turned back a blow from Mjolnir. On the other hand, Thor in the movies seems markedly less powerful than Thor in the comics (the rather lopsided battle with the Hulk in the Avengers being the best example of this) so maybe this is just an indication of the same thing.

    I also wish that they would let Thor wear his helmet. The metal winged helmet they had him briefly wear in the first film looked to me to be pretty impressive and a good compromise with the comics version. I think he would look more impressive with the helmet rather than just with his hair flying around.

    Amazing… its likes the comic book page has come to life. Perfect casting. Possibly best transformation of character to actor ever. Talk about hitting it out of the box.  The fanboy in me is a very happy camper… oy, but the wait for the next film…  guess I’ll have to pop in a DVD of Thor, or The Avengers tonight….

    I like that those circle things on Thor’s torso actually connect to the cape this time. More similar to Coipel’s design. :)
    I also liked his Avengers costume, which was so like the original.

    Because he is RIDICULOUSLY powerful in the comics.
