First Glimpse of the Smackdown between the Ninth Doctor and Thor

Videos from the set of Thor: The Dark World show off the very first glimpse of Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed, this movie's big bad. Apparently he's gearing up to fight Thor, and you can see Chris Hemsworth milling around in the third video below. In the second Thor film, the blonde-haired God has to fight an ancient race lead by Malekith, in hopes of restoring the cosmos.

I've never been a huge Thor fan but I certainly felt like the first Thor movie was a bit of a letdown. Hollywood needs to understand that superhero movies can often times RIDE on the climactic fight between the hero and villain, and too often fails in execution. (IRON MAN 2, FOR INSTANCE)

Loki was absolutely no match for Thor in the first movie, as soon as Thor went serious mode he quickly defeated him. Same for the destroyer/robot thing from the movie. The only thing he had trouble with was the Hulk in the Avengers, and even then he was a bit passive in fighting him.

I don't know much about the lore/story, but hopefully we can get some epic battles where Thor is actually pushed to his limits.
