New Images from THOR: THE DARK WORLD

     June 5, 2013


New images from Thor: The Dark World have been released along with higher-quality versions of previously released images.  The sequel, directed by Game of Thrones helmer Alan Taylor, will find Thor (Chris Hemsworth) squaring off against the villainous dark elf Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston).  These images continue to give us a better look at Malekith, and his very cool mask.  For those who complained that Thor took the magic away from the character by depriving him of his powers and throwing him down to Earth, it looks like The Dark World won’t have that problem.  We’ve seen the character in two mostly-earthbound movies, and now it’s time to get him fighting on his home turf.

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.

    The first two images look like they were inspired by a scene from Eyes Wide Shut.

      how so?

        The masks in the second photo are vaguely reminiscent of those worn in Eyes Wide Shut……I’m not expecting an elf orgy, it was more of an attempt at a humorous aside.

        Elf Orgy? …it could happen! The director did do Game of Thrones before this. lol

  • dubu

    This movie looks like it’s going to be really lame. Very disappointed with the trailer. Why does Loki have to be in every Thor movie? Kevin Feige turned Loki into a whimp.

    • pwnednoob

      Sorry but this movie looks A LOT better then the first one IMO.

    • Redjester

      I must be in the minority in thinking that Hiddleston’s Loki is one of this series (and The Avengers) more redeeming factors. He’s gradually joining Cumberbatch and Fassbender as one of my favorite actors in their mid-30′s or younger.

    I should totally be Thor for Halloween. Complete with bulging fake muscles and lavish blond hair. The ladies love em some Thor…

    It’s looks like Ecclestone is about to ‘bring the rain’ with a deep sea fish. An interesting choice of weapon for an elf.

  • Dare Devil

    Sif looks more pissed than Thor & I like it …..
