What Is ‘Malekith’ Up To In Recent Videos & Photos From THOR: THE DARK WORLD Set?

The most recent bundle of photos and videos from Marvel's Thor: The Dark World set have raised a few questions involving a solo Malekith scene and a mysterious prop advert. Check it out!

A battle between the God of Thunder & the Accursed Dark Elf ruler of Thor: The Dark World was the highlight of yesterday's filming at Greenwich, London. However, there was another brief scene filmed with Christopher Eccleston's ‘Malekith’ solo, doing something surely villain-like, but unknown specifically. And with photos courtesy of Expederest and set footage via CBM user Topcat10, check it out below. And there's more on-set mystery indulgence even lower!















Furthermore, somewhat of another mystery came from the set yesterday. A double-decker London bus is being used as a prop in the Alan Taylor-directed Marvel sequel. And while it'll likely to take part in carnage during the movie, the mystery comes more from the advert on the bus. Captioning another photo by Expederest (pictured above), Tumblr user Knorcerer investigates:

“Just a London bus, right? But what about the advert? Moral Sacrifice? In cinemas now? A quick Google search shows that there’s no film by that name, and definitely none in cinemas now. Plus, no trailers or any promotional material for it on Youtube. Oh, but there’s an actor’s name on the top of it, so it must be legit! What’s the name? Oliver Goodier. I was disheartened to see that he actually has an IMDB account… But then clicked on it to discover that he’s the art director for Thor 2! http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1049859/ Coincidence? I think not! So, what exactly is a moral sacrifice and what does it have to do with the movie? ”
















Marvel Studios’ “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.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo & Anthony Hopkins as Odin, “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, from a story by Don Payne (credit not final) and screenplay by Christopher Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (credit not final) and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery” #83 in August, 1962. “Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle and Nigel Gostelow. The film releases November 8, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

In addition to “Thor: The Dark World”, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on more iconic Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; “Marvel's The Avengers” sequel (title TBA) on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!

thejon93rd - 11/17/2012, 9:16 AM
Looks a bit like Chris Evans as Captain America on that bus... but with a cape on? I'm confused.
SpoonWielder - 11/17/2012, 9:18 AM
Looks to me like he's summoning his army.
thewonderer - 11/17/2012, 9:19 AM
Motto of of marvel fanboys,

when in doubt, insult nolan.

Anyway this looks sweet, wish Mads had stayed on as Malekith though
StarkAnthony - 11/17/2012, 9:19 AM
Heyoo - look at that lighting! I for one am still hopeful for some SURTUR!
ComradeGrey - 11/17/2012, 9:23 AM
Power gem.

"i now know malekith is going to lose. why even watch this now that it's been spoiled?"

Considering there is going to be a Thor 3 and Avengers 2 and 3, doesn't logic tell you Malekith will lose? I bet you think that Zod isn't going to lose in The Man of Steel?

*Spoiler Alert*



Zod is going to lose! :-P

Some of the *face palms* that this site generates never cease to amaze me.

You can always tell when someone comes on articles looking for attention.smh

SN: Ready for a trailer!!
Happy11 - 11/17/2012, 9:41 AM
@thejon93rd thats what I thought looks it Chris Evans. I wasn't sure about ecclesston being cast as I think he's overrated and hasn't made a decent performance in any of his terrible movies, I'm not including tv roles as I think that's his strength but the recent photos and set videos have made me these apprehensive.
MisterNiceGuy - 11/17/2012, 9:42 AM
Obvious Intruder is obvious...
thalidomide - 11/17/2012, 9:43 AM
OMG ZOD IS GOING TO LOSE?!?!?!


SPOILER ALERRRTT!!!!! :)
csdot - 11/17/2012, 9:45 AM
i think people are reading into the Moral Sacrifice ad way too much, im pretty sure its just set dressing with no significance.
SageMode - 11/17/2012, 9:47 AM
The videos are finally showing up on the IPad. Great news great news.

BTW, I'm guessing that's the artificial sun they were referring to
thalidomide - 11/17/2012, 9:51 AM
@sage

If you're having problems with your ipad use the iswifter app.
Screwger - 11/17/2012, 9:52 AM
In last picture Malekith is like: God! Please send me some bitches!
JordanKing - 11/17/2012, 9:54 AM
Wait, hold on. The villain's actually going to lose in this film?! Shit, I didn't see that one coming..
GammaVerve - 11/17/2012, 9:57 AM
Again, awesome.

I'm on the regular browser now and it's showing up, but I did download that app browser yesterday though.
SanFranLand - 11/17/2012, 10:03 AM
Super cool. I bet he's conjuring up some sort of cgi demon after Thor bests him in hand to hand combat. This gun be good!
SanFranLand - 11/17/2012, 10:05 AM
@SageMode--videos finally working on iPhone too! For about 2 weeks the page would start to load, show the video on the page, and disappear into disappointment. .
TheEnd - 11/17/2012, 10:07 AM
That ad has to mean something!! if its just a cover or just for show why even bother taking that extra effort and spending that extra money? A plain looking bus will do.
Kevinwillpeabodyproperties - 11/17/2012, 10:20 AM
Batfan r u serious right now?? Did u really think te plot would be malekith wins and thor loses lol
Kevinwillpeabodyproperties - 11/17/2012, 10:22 AM
I believe malekith is harnessing the power of the red sun or something like that.
thorhulk77 - 11/17/2012, 10:27 AM
Maybe he is summoning Surtur the fire demon. That would be awesome!
malekithdude - 11/17/2012, 10:29 AM
Really hope Malekith doesn't die in Thor. Super villains always die in most movies these days, having one survive, vowing for revenge and one day coming back stronger would be an awesome change. Loki is one exception, but you cannot kill him! Personally I hope the Dark Elves are defeated, but come back stronger in another future movie. Maybe the Avengers (3?) they just look so brilliant! Cannot wait!!!
thatdylhooper - 11/17/2012, 11:32 AM
This looks like the final action scene

soberchimera - 11/17/2012, 11:46 AM
Thor: The Dark World > Iron Man 3
CharacterAssassin - 11/17/2012, 11:53 AM
@TheBeard... I was thinking... He has a Headache this big...
Fogs - 11/17/2012, 12:05 PM
Don't want to preach, but each day it's clearer that just like Loki had the Mind Gem in his staff given to him by Thanos now Malekith has the Power gem.

- He blocks Mjolnir attacks.
- When he does it red light comes up.
- He "evokes" some red energy (3rd vid).
