I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty excited to see Thor: The Dark World. Where I felt the first Thor was just okay, after the character’s emergence in The Avengers, along with the blossoming of his evil brother Loki, the prospect of seeing them both on the big screen again is quite exciting. And it’s coming soon. Thor: The Dark World, directed by Alan Taylor, opens November 8.
Today, a whole bunch of brand new still images only add to that excitement. In them, you get a much closer look at Christopher Eccleston‘s bad guy Malekith the Accursed, some sweeping scenery and a few new glimpses of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander and more to boot.

Hit the jump to see what he said.

Back in 2010, Marvel hired artist Olly Moss to make a special poster for the cast and crew of Thor. The resulting image, never available for public purchase, blended a bunch of iconic imagery from the film into the outline of Mjolnir. Last year Moss was asked to do similar work for the sequel, Thor: The Dark World. Now that the first trailer has debuted, he has debuted the finished product to the public.
