Paparazzi have been all over the Thor: The Dark World set. We've seen our fair share of Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder, and Jaimie Alexander as the warrior Sif. Now we've got our first look at their newest adversary.

Back in August, we learned that former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston was cast in the highly anticipated sequel. Eccleston stars as Malekith, the leader of the Dark Elves, who are wreaking havoc on the cosmos. His ruthless army will give Thor and Odin a run for their money.

Below are some photos from the film's busy London set. It looks like they're filming a massive action scene led by Eccleston's character. The elfish look really works on the actor. We can't wait to see him in the finished product. The basic costume and makeup are already striking without CGI. We can only imagine what he'll look like with all the bells and whistles.

Thor: The Dark World opens in theaters Nov. 8.
