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 Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins. Thor: 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.
