New Images from THOR: THE DARK WORLD Featuring Christopher Eccleston’s Villain Malekith; Official Site Launched

     May 27, 2013

A few new images from Marvel’s next upcoming sequel, Thor: The Dark World, have made their way online.  We just recently saw the first trailer for the Alan Taylor-directed film, which provided a couple of glimpses at Christopher Eccleston as the villainous Dark Elf Malekith the Accursed. However, these new Dark World images give us a better look at the antagonist’s character design along with a new image of Malekith’s dark elven brethren.  We’re still fairly clueless as to what the plot of Thor 2 entails, but we do know that a great deal of the film will take place in realms other than Earth.

Hit the jump to take a look at the new images.  The film also stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom HiddlestonJaimie AlexanderStellan 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.

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.
