<font color=red>UPDATE</font>: Malekith And THOR Do Battle In Great New Batch Of THE DARK WORLD Set Photos

With sightings of both actors Chris Hemsworth and Christopher Eccleston, their costumed ‘Thor’ & ‘Malekith’ stunt-doubles have been photographed going head-to-head in new Thor: The Dark World set pics!

The cameras are still rolling in London for Marvel and director Alan Taylor's anticipated film, Thor: The Dark World. And with more sightings of the titular God of Thunder actor Chris Hemsworth, and his antagonist Malekith the Accursed actor Chris Eccleston, their stunt-doubles are the highlight of the latest set photos. Photographed by Dan Mumford, the pics feature the two costumed beings facing off against each other.

UPDATE: Splash News Online has provided closeup set photos, now featuring Thor and Malekith's respectable actors, Hemsworth and Eccleston, battling before the cameras.


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!

Damn do their stunt doubles to all the fighting i hate seeing that
MisterNiceGuy - 11/16/2012, 7:10 AM
Im sure the Kurse footage will be harder to get bc thats likely to be filmed in a green room...or blue room...whatever color room they are using nowadays.
jimdotbeep - 11/16/2012, 7:16 AM
What happened to Malekith's motion capture dots?
pepe - 11/16/2012, 7:19 AM
Could someone of that crew put a helmet on the norseGod... like soon?

Great set pics! So I wonder if his hammer can now transport him to different dimensions now, since he's back on earth??
GodzillaKart - 11/16/2012, 7:23 AM
In the 7th picture they look like they are getting a time out for fighting.
jessepostal - 11/16/2012, 7:24 AM
I hope Jane foster doesn't drive a vdub
GodzillaKart - 11/16/2012, 7:27 AM
@Pepe: I dunno. I think with the helmet all these sweet scenes would look silly.
AztecRainGod - 11/16/2012, 7:28 AM
Malekith must be pretty powerful in the movie if he can stand toe to toe with Thor....
thalidomide - 11/16/2012, 7:29 AM
Oh shit Earth scene!!
OptimusPrimeTime - 11/16/2012, 7:29 AM
@@jimdotbeep. I was wondering if those were mo cap dots or just part of his face. Lol.

Anyone have any ideas about what the mo cap dots may be for on malekith's face??
AztecRainGod - 11/16/2012, 7:31 AM
@Mister nice guy

I think alot of the Kurse stuff will be practical and not CGI, otherwise, why hire a guy like Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

@ thalidomide

thor uppercutting the hulk is my favorite moment from the avengers.
cptamericanotsomuch - 11/16/2012, 8:06 AM
Holy [frick] looks like Thor is about to do the SUCK IT from DX in that second to last pic!!!!!!
KaneVonDoom - 11/16/2012, 8:16 AM
Looks to be some sort of lighting effect when Malekith is blocking so I'm sure there'll be "Magick" of some sort involved.

I am stoked for all of Phase 2.
bobevanz - 11/16/2012, 8:16 AM

He looks pretty close to source material :)

Power Rangers: The Return of Zed and the Putties.
KaneVonDoom - 11/16/2012, 8:19 AM
And it appears that those dots are still on his face although it's hard to tell whether they are for MoCap or just part of the design like tattoos.
sameoldthing - 11/16/2012, 8:27 AM
Hmm,looks just ok to me. Was hoping the battles take place somewhere in the nine realms NOT including Earth..first movie needed the Earth connection but not now.

Thor's films should revolve around threats to Asgard & let him save the Earth in Avengers films.
Wait & see how it turns out I suppose.
Minghagz - 11/16/2012, 8:28 AM
Epic! #2 most anticipated CBM of 2013 for me! Can't wait to see it all touched up with CG

LMAO @ Jollem!
ManofSteel23 - 11/16/2012, 8:30 AM
How the hell does he ge back to earth this time!
FirstAvenger - 11/16/2012, 8:38 AM
Why was he on his knees so much?
LFANCH - 11/16/2012, 9:11 AM
It's a good possibility that the asguardians can use the cosmic cube to rebuild the rainbow bridge. Or they could just use the cube itself to travel through the realms again like thor an loki did at the end of avengers. Although i doubt that because they should be more responsible with the cube now. Seriously, why did odin leave that thing behind to begin with?
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 11/16/2012, 9:20 AM
Aw man more earth? I was hoping for at least one Thor movie to take place completely off earth. Oh well I'll still be seeing this. Looks good.
fattieacid - 11/16/2012, 9:51 AM
