First Look At THOR: THE DARK WORLD Villain ‘Malekith’ & Army of Dark Elves Via Set Photos

The latest batch of photos from Marvel's Thor: The Dark World has revealed the first look at actor Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed and his pack of villainous Dark Elves! Check them out!



Brand new photos have surfaced from the set of Marvel's Thor: The Dark World via MTV Splash Page and Splash News Online. Revealing the first look at actor Christopher Eccleston as the film's main baddie, Malekith the Accursed, along with his ancient army of Dark Elves, the photos also feature Chris Hemsworth suited up once again, now bruised and battered. Check them out below!






















The last two photos pictured above were taken last month when filming for Thor: The Dark World was taking place at Bourne Wood, Surrey. The creatures masked on the stuntmen were believed to be the Dark Elves. However, given that we now have photos of how the elves actually look, it seems the Alan Taylor-directed sequel will in fact feature multiple alien races, and their realms.



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.
