Just the other day we got a glimpse of Christopher Eccleston as the villain Malekith on the set of Marvel’s sequel Thor: The Dark World alongside his Dark Elf brethren, and today more photos and video from the set have surfaced. Today’s batch could be considered spoilery, as they reveal Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and that dastardly Malekith duking it out on location in London. Really nothing is revealed other than the fact that they’re fighting, but it’s clear that Eccleston is wearing motion-capture dots on his face so I’m interested to see what the final design for Malekith will look like after the visual effects are completed.
Hit the jump to check out the images and video. Directed by Alan Taylor, the film also stars Natalie Portman, 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 8, 2013. [Update: We’ve removed the unofficial images and video.]
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.
