Yesterday, we got a look at some on-set photos from Marvel’s upcoming ‘Thor: The Dark World’. Those photos were distant shots and, while we could see crowds of warriors, we couldn’t really tell what’s going on. Well today, via Blastr, we get some more set photos… and these are much more character-centric.

We get a good look at Sif, played by actress Jaimie Alexander, all armored up and taking to the battlefield. We also get a look at some of the random peasants and warriors. There’s even a shot of what may be one of the rumored dark elves.

Word is that ‘The Dark World’ is going to give fans a look at the more mystical side of the Marvel cinematic universe. I’m all for that because, if it works for moviegoers, that might move that long-rumored ‘Doctor Strange’ movie that much closer to theater screens.

‘Thor: The Dark World’ is directed by Alan Taylor and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins, and Christopher Eccleston. It will smash into theaters on November 8, 2013.
