We’ve known that The Dark Elves were going to be a big part of Thor: The Dark World for a while now. How couldn’t they be when Christopher Eccleston, has been cast to play Malekith, the leader of the Dark Elves. Now we are getting our first partial look at them and they look pretty cool. I call it a partial look because I’m guessing that the black portions of the costume are probably going to be heavily enhanced via CGI.

Along with Eccleston and Hemsworth, THor: The Dark World also stars: Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins.

It is set for a November 8, 2013 release.

Official Synopsis:
Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
