Updated: New Malekith and Jane Foster character posters for Thor: The Dark World is unveiled!

Sep. 5, 2013by: Paul Shirey

UPDATE: Added a second poster, the weirdly placed Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) character poster. See below.

So far, we've seen plenty of images of the titular hero in THOR: THE DARK WORLD, but not much love for the film's villain, Malekith, as played by Christopher Eccleston. However, the gods of Asgard (or Marvel) have unveiled a new character poster featuring Thor's foil, a dark elf who is on the warpath against the God of Thunder in the sequel to 2011's THOR. It's a cool "reveal" image and definitely presents a character that looks like he could go toe-to-toe with the hammer-wielding goldilocks.

Check it out:

For a while there I thought THOR: THE DARK WORLD was really under the radar, but based on our latest poll it seems like you guys are really looking forward to this one. I'm excited myself, which doesn't take that much given the care, precision, and integrity that has followed the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far (okay, except for that whole Mandarin thing). I'm betting this next entry will topple the first film, especially with less time on Earth, whcih was a key complaint from the original. We'll see.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Christopher Eccleston, Rene Russo, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Kat Dennings, and Chris O'Dowd crashes to Midgard on November 8, 2013.

That Malekith poster is so very cool. I love how the Marvel Studios movie posters never look painfully Photoshopped the way a lot of film posters do these days.

I'm definitely looking forward to this sequel. It's probably my most anticipated of the Marvel sequels aside from Avengers: Age of Ultron. From what I've seen so far, I don't think that I'll be disappointed. That being said, I have been wrong before.

Natalie Portman's caption for that second poster should be "but you don't carry a flashlight..."

Jeez, Thor, you should hook up with Sif!

She wouldn't be hiding in your arms, she'd be hauling out her sword and preparing to kick ass alongside you! (I had to channel my wife there for a second.)

Yeah, I'm looking forward to this film.

I hope he is just as good as Loki in being a really great villain. Infact, I would love to see Loki go head to head against Malekith.

One thing I'm really looking forward to in this are the fight scenes.

His poor face

What I find most interesting about the pictures of Maliketh that have been released so far is that they lead to the conclusion that we will see why his face becomes blackened on one side. I'm not too hip on Thor's universe within Marvel but I don't think that was ever explained in the comics. But I bet Thor is the cause in the movie.
