Chris Hemsworth battles Dark Elves in new images from Thor: The Dark World
Now that IRON MAN 3 has ravaged the international box office to the tune of more than $1 billion, it’s time for the guy with the mean swing to show what he can do at the box office. Chris Hemsworth returns as Thor in THOR: THE DARK WORLD and I”m anxious to see what director Alan Taylor can do with the God of Lightning. Personally, of the pre-Avengers Marvel films, I thought the first Thor was the weakest of the bunch, but I was very impressed with Chris Hemsworth. I think it’s possible to make a good Thor movie, but the character does pose the most challenges, especially when trying to balance action on Earth and action across the universe. Today we get some new looks at Chris Hemsworth in action as well as a new look at Chris Eccleston as the villain Malekith The Accused with some Dark Elves for good measure. The images were scanned by Redzilla from the recent Empire magazine.
THOR: THE DARK WORLD will star: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Rene Russo, Jamie Alexander, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Eccleston, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi and Tadanobu Asano. Directed by Alan Taylor, THOR: THE DARK WORLD is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8th, 2013.
THOR: THE DARK WORLD official synopsis: 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.
