16 New Images from THOR: THE DARK WORLD Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, and Christopher Eccleston

     August 23, 2013


Marvel has released 16 new images from Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World.  The film finds Chris Hemsworth’s Thor squaring off against the villainous dark elf Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston).  Producer Craig Kyle tells Empire that when the film picks up, Asgard has been at war for almost a year because the cost of rebuilding the bifrost, “but during that time, when the cops were largely cut off from the rest of the universe, you had miscreants that came in from outside the Nine Realms, pillaging and destroying and causing havoc. So that’s what our guys have been doing now – trying to put all these fires out across the Nine Realms.”  While I still have my doubts about the movie, I still love the look of Asgard and the characters’ costumes.  I’m also impressed by the makeup work on Malekith unmasked (seen above), and want to see more of him in action.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Natalie PortmanTom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony HopkinsThor: The Dark World opens in 3D on November 8th.

Here’s the synopsis for Thor: The Dark World:

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.

    • Django9000

      I was gonna say the same thing. Stellan … you’re threatening to bring on an early RAGNAROK with those socks & shorts, bro.

    Looking good! Like it’s more appropriately epic than the first movie.

    I hate how the only Loki pictures are screenshots of the trailer. <3 But Sif (Jaimie) is BEAUTIFUL in that last picture. She's beautiful anyway! c:

  • Tiffani

    I hate how the only Loki pictures are screenshots of the trailer. </3 But Jaimie (Sif) is so beautiful. Wow.

    I hope this movie is a pile of Sif.

    • Ruprect

      Agreed. A big steamy pile.

      • Lovecraftlives

        Shut up! This film is going to be great! Thor is going to smash you two into the ground!!

      • Django9000

        SIF IS A BABE. (That’s what he’s saying. Bring on the warrior woman. I’m in agreement.)

        I hope we also get Balder the Brave.

      • Ruprect

        asimov, lighten up a bit. Yes, Django got it right. I was refering to Sif being hot. Love me some immortal shield maiden! I’m sure the movie will be great and I am looking forward to it

      • Lovecraftlives

        Ok, sorry about that! Yes, I love SIf, too. In the mythology, she supposed to be Thor’s wife. She’s not in the film, but I think she was in the comic at some point. It looks like will see more of her, so that is something that will be good. Oh, I do like the first film, but I’m hoping this one will be better, which I have the feeling it will.
