Some new pics from Thor: The Dark World have been released, giving us an intriguing new look at the Marvel sequel’s new Big Bads.

We’ve only gotten a few tantalizing peeks at the Dark Elves in previous trailers and posters, but these 10 new pics show director Alan Taylor working with the evil soldiers in all their creepy glory.

We also get to see Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Jane (Natalie Portman) make their way through Asgard, Earth and a pretty massive battlefield. Oh, and keep an eye out for the dark elves’ badass bazooka arm — we can’t wait to see that thing in action.

Here’s the official synopsis for the sequel:

Marvel’s 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.

The film is set to open Nov. 8 in the U.S.
