Five New Thor: The Dark World Images Arrive
Fresh from the latest issue of Empire...

05 June 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb

Thor: The Dark World kicks off the On Location section of this month's Empire - on sale now, by the by - with exclusive on-set access from Marvel's Asgardian sequel and five brand new stills. These five brand new stills have now made their way online via Marvel.com, and we've got them here for you to enjoy below as well.

The most important thing here is the first look at Christopher Eccleston's Malekith The Accursed, the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, whose baby-mask-from-Brazil-like face is pretty flippin' spooky. As for that whopper of a gun of his, that's a dark-matter energy gun. Expect that to have something to do with the whole 'Dark World' business.

Set one year after Avengers, the Thor-quel will see Asgard battered by war after invasion by the rag-tag Marauders - only for a worse threat to turn up in the form of our man elf Malekith and his people, who are out for vengeance against the whole realm of Asgard because of an ancient grudge.

Says producer Craig Kyle, "Like in Indiana Jones, while there's high stakes and high threat and high danger, there's always fun. It's a very complicated blend. Thor is, until Guardians Of The Galaxy hits, by far our most wild, fringe Marvel piece. But that's why it's the Marvel Universe and not Marvel Earth!"

Thor: The Dark World hits cinemas on October 30, and the trailer can be found below. Have a look at our trailer breakdown thisaway.

Asgard
I hope Asgard looks more like Jack Kirby's version this time around, it needs to be mind-bendingly strange... in other news, the Dark Elves look awesome! More
