New Thor: The Dark World Set Photo
'Thor is now a full-time general'

With the new issue of Empire now on shelves we have yet another little treat for you - a set photo from Thor: The Dark World, with Chris Hemsworth's Norse god looking rather troubled alongside new director Alan Taylor, probably because he has Christopher Eccleston's Malekith on his tail and Asgard under attack.

Set one year after Avengers, the Thor sequel 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 Malekith and his Dark Elves, 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, just in time to inspire a million Halloween costumes. Pick up a copy of Empire's March edition for more on the movie.
