Now without lettering and graininess of a magazine scan, the first official Thor: The Dark World production photo, with Alan Taylor directing armored Chris Hemsworth on set, surrounded by Asgardian Einherjars, has emerged online.
Although on-location filming in London provided a great deal of quality photos from the sequel’s production, Disney/Marvel decided to present an official behind-the-scenes photo to Empire for their latest issue.
Magazine scans first revealed the photo earlier this week along with new story details, but now it has surfaced in original quality. Check it out:
Marvel Studios’ 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.
Starring also Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgard, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander, with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins, Thor: The Dark World is slated to hit the theaters on November 8th, 2013.
