An epic battle rages in 1st Thor: The Dark World set video

The first footage from Thor: The Dark World has finally (kind of) leaked out, and we have a glimpse at what looks to be a massive battle with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on hand to kick butt and take names.

The footage comes from the Bourne Wood, Surrey, set in England, where some huge Norse-style sets have been constructed for the big-budget Marvel sequel.

The battle glimpsed here includes a ton of extras, and even has some pretty flashy explosions mixed in for good measure.

After introducing casual fans to the world of Asgard with Thor, it looks like Marvel is digging deeper into the universe with part two, and we can't wait to see how all of this looks in glorious 3D next November.

The Marvel Phase Two project stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Stellan Skarsgard, Kat Dennings and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:
