Get creeped out by Malekith in new Thor: The Dark World poster

Get ready to stare into the face of the God of Thunder's newest nemesis.

We're now just a couple of short months away from the release of the latest Marvel Studios release, Thor: The Dark World, which will see Marvel's Asgardian Avenger (Chris Hemsworth) take on the Dark Elf Malekith the Accursed, played by former Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston. Now Marvel has released a poster highlighting Malekith's dark look, and it's definitely something to behold.


Both of Thor's previous big-screen adventures featured head-to-head battles with his devious brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and apart from Frost Giants and Chitauri soldiers, he's had nothing else to fight, so Malekith should definitely prove a refreshing and worthy adversary with an actor of Eccleston's caliber in the role. The Dark World will also feature returning co-stars Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Kat Dennings, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Jaimie Alexander and Anthony Hopkins, along with new cast members Eccleston, Zachary Levi and Clive Russell.

If this poster is any indication, Eccleston definitely seems poised to be a creepy scene stealer, but in case you want something easier on the eyes, here's another poster highlighting Thor and main squeeze Jane Foster.

Thor: The Dark World will hit the U.K. on Oct. 30 and the U.S. on Nov. 8. What do you think? Will this movie top Thor in terms of comic-book fantasy spectacle?
