We just got some more shots of Christopher Eccleston as the villain Malekith on the set of Thor 2: The Dark World.
CAUTION SPOILERS!! Geek-Prime
In the images we get to see a battle (Not sure if final battle) between Thor and Malekith and from what we can tell its hammer time and Thor is about smash Malekith with his hammer in the FACE! Or is he?
From what we tell it seems that Malekith is able to withstand the power of Thor’s Mighty Hammer “Mjolnir”. in the video we can see he blocks a direct strike from the hammer, although this is nothing amazing because even Captain Americas shield is able to withstand the force. But in this cause its a Foe of thor and he seems to make light work of the hammer and even puts his fist against the hammer.
Check out the images below and let us know your thoughts.
