Concept Art by Andy Park

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.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD was directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones") and will be coming to DVD soon. Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Rene Russo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Zachary Levi, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Christopher Eccleston, and Idris Elba.

The clothing designs are cool.
HulkleBerry - 2/10/2014, 10:23 AM
These were great, but you can tell they probably thought that the split face design could come off as kinda silly, so they dialed it back, and reduced to a blast from a weapon. i like what they chose ultimately for Malekith, but some of these were great
Amazing512 - 2/10/2014, 10:24 AM
I loved Thor: TDW but all these Malekith designs look 10x than the one they used. I don't know why they tweaked his look soo much.

Doopie - 2/10/2014, 10:28 AM
yeah why not that?? this is sick tho!
charlie2094 - 2/10/2014, 10:30 AM
Some awesome stuff!!

Damn shame how Malekith turned out, visually and as a character...shame they didn't go with that design above, looks ripped right out of the comics..

figuresmaniac - 2/10/2014, 10:31 AM
I own this book, cool concepts.
Strange that they didn't cover the greenwich scenes at all.
TheClemster - 2/10/2014, 10:35 AM

It has to be the inspiration

@ Batz

ahaha that's hilarious...

Never a bad thing having one of the concept artists behind God Of War working on your movie....
kevberg - 2/10/2014, 10:53 AM
Kurse was such a friggin let down. he didnt have anything that borrowed from the design from the comics. He was so blah and uninspired.
TheRationalNerd - 2/10/2014, 10:55 AM

Wow, you said concept artist working behind God of War!? Man, I sure hope they return when the GoW movie releases.
TheRationalNerd - 2/10/2014, 11:06 AM
All of the villains in this movie were a let down. The only person who had the most thrill was Loki and it want even his movie...smh I still enjoyed the movie. There's no doubt at all about that, but I just feel that Marvel has been watering down their villains for the GA lately. Yeah we already get it, Loki's a bada** but there's other great villains to choose from as being the spotlight in these films. I know for sure Cap 2 won't disappoint but hopefully Thor 3 is SOLIDLY focused in Asgard. 80% Asgard and 20% earth is all I ask for.

PLEASE! Or 90% Asgard and 10% earth. I mean for Odin's sake you already have the entire Ultron gig going down on Earth. Just give earth a break and focus on Thor's natural setting.
DrDoom - 2/10/2014, 11:09 AM
Awesome art, as usual. I like the designs that made it into the film, but if there is one that I would swap out, it would be this one for Malekith:

This one would've been a dream to see on screen.
soforizo - 2/10/2014, 11:12 AM
That's some VERY good art!
aRandomSinisterClone - 2/10/2014, 11:24 AM
need more Idris Elba
Lancer1 - 2/10/2014, 11:30 AM
Amazing's a rare case when we see the movie looks more authentic than it's concept arts ...movies like 300 and man of steel
Lancer1 - 2/10/2014, 11:38 AM
TheBlackNerd you are right bro ...all I ask is 50% asgard ,50% other realms go further no more darcy shit ...thor movies could be great , lotr scale but instead we get average movies
SigmaCenturion - 2/10/2014, 12:04 PM
Those designs are way better than the ones they used for the movie. The dark elves where meh as villains.
Ramiel - 2/10/2014, 12:21 PM
Those dark elves designs are breathtaking. They should have been used to make the elves look more dark and menacing. This Malekith looks evil/Mal

NightForce - 2/10/2014, 12:47 PM
I thought the Dark Elves [frick]ing sucked in the movie. These designs for Malekith look way better.
NightForce - 2/10/2014, 12:55 PM
"thor movies could be great , lotr scale but instead we get average movies"
100% right. Don't get me wrong I re-watched T:TDW online the other day. I mean I liked it and thought it was OK, but it felt so half-assed and really felt like it could have been a lot more. Thor is still under-powered, final fight was pretty bad (tumbling through portals), and just a lot of other things about this movie were off.

Yeah depending on how A:AOU ends, the movie should open with Thor on Earth (for like 10 minutes) and returning to Asgard.
kong - 2/10/2014, 1:56 PM
The second and fourth Malekith designs are stellar!!!!
jimoakley666 - 2/10/2014, 2:03 PM
First Maleketh is bloody ace!
GUNSMITH - 2/10/2014, 2:24 PM
marvel72 - 2/10/2014, 2:44 PM
would of been cool if they had used that first image of malekith,closer to the comics which is always good if you ask me.
Destined - 2/10/2014, 3:19 PM
These designs are so dope!
ThePowerCosmic - 2/10/2014, 4:12 PM
Andy Park is the best! I liked Malekith's final look..but some of these are better and closer to the source material.
ThePowerCosmic - 2/10/2014, 4:17 PM

Thor spends a lot of time on Earth in the comics. GotG is where you will get your 5% Earth 95% off Earth.
MightyZeus - 2/10/2014, 5:40 PM
Amazing concept art for a good movie.

NebulaFields - 2/10/2014, 6:19 PM
These are amazing... damn. Wonder why they used the one they used in the movie after seeing some of these.
NeoBaggins - 2/10/2014, 7:27 PM
In some cases, a close comic translation may not fit in the environment created. But in this case, Asgard is established and ready to receive all of its weird and extreme beings. Using the design that looks like comic Malekith is a no-brainer. *shrugs* I don't get it.
