Including some more shots of the villain...
Empire magazine has revealed new photos from Thor: The Dark World, including a look at Christopher Eccleston as Malekith.
Director Alan Taylor said: "You know, we are killing Asgardians in this movie. It turns out immortality isn't all that it was cracked up to be."
Producer Craig Kyle added: "Asgard at the beginning of the first film was at a time of peace. Now our guys have been fighting for over a year, constantly. It's a time of war. When the Bifrost was broken at the end of the first film, Odin had to conjure a lot of dark energy and go through a lot of personal sacrifice to try and get his son back to Earth. And it was a one-shot deal. If Thor didn't succeed, without the Tesseract he couldn't have got back again. And in our film, finally the Bifrost has been rebuilt, but during that time, when the cops were largely cut off from the rest of the universe, you had miscreants that came in from outside the Nine Realms, pillaging and destroying and causing havoc. So that's what our guys have been doing now - trying to put all these fires out across the Nine Realms."
The film opens on November 8th and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Stellan Skarsgard, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Zachary Levi.
