Two new posters for Thor: The Dark World

Thor: The Dark World has revealed a pair of new posters online, featuring a frightened-looking Jane Foster and the fearsome Malekith the Accursed.

The latter is the more eye-catching of the two, with Christopher Eccleston's villain clutching an eerie-looking mask, and peering menacingly into the camera.

While she may be safely behind Thor's hammer, it's good to see Natalie Portman's Foster at the heart of the action in the other new poster, sporting some rather fetching Asgardian wristwear.

The new film will see Thor going toe-to-toe with Malekith and his Dark Elves, as both Earth, Asgard and the rest of the Nine Realms wind up in very grave danger indeed.

Directed by Alan Taylor and co-starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins, Thor: The Dark World will open in the UK on 30 October 2013.
