It’s been a while since we last saw some images from the set of Marvel’s sequel Thor: The Dark World, but today some new photos have popped online featuring star Chris Hemsworth filming in London. These images aren’t as exciting as the previous batch that teased a ginormous battle on an alien planet, but we do get to see Hemsworth strike some Thor poses and roll heroically. Apparently the scene in question involves the character throwing his hammer down and summoning some good old-fashioned lightning.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Directed by Alan Taylor, the film also stars Natalie Portman, Christopher Eccleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Kat Dennings, and Tom Hiddleston. Thor: The Dark World opens on November 8th, 2013. [Update: We’ve removed the unofficial images.]
Here’s the synopsis for Thor: The Dark World:
