Thor 2 Set Photos Show Off Dark Elves And Villain

Thor 2: Dark World is filming right now and we have two set photos showing two very important things: the Dark Elf warriors and their leader (and film villain) Malekith.

Malekith is being played by actor Christopher Eccleston. The Dark Elves look very eerie in these photos. The warrior’s helmets are very off-putting thanks to the void-like eyes. I have a feeling they might bring a bit of suspence and maybe even horror to Dark World if done right.

Malekith looks very foreboding here. Standing in the midst of his warriors like a seasoned veteran, the villain here should be exciting to watch on the silver screen.

Thor 2 is part of Marvel’s Phase Two which kicks off with Iron Man 3 next year. Dark World is scheduled to release November 8th, 2013 with most of the cast from the first film coming back to reprise. That includes Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), Tom Hiddleson (Loki), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Stellan Skarsgård (Erik Selvig), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), and Anthony Hopkins (Odin).
