Can you believe it's been six months now since we last saw Thor kick the crap out of somebody? Time flies when you're watching your Avengers Blu-ray over and over again. But if you're jonesing for a new fix of hammer-slinging action, Splash News Online has you covered, with a behind the scenes spy video of the superhero's solo sequel, Thor: The Dark World, showing a knockdown fight between Chris Hemsworth and an actor whom we are assured is Christopher Eccleston, playing the villain Malekith the Accursed, although we never get a good look at his face.
The video doesn't give us much in the way of context, but we know that Malekith the Accursed is leading an army of elves against the Norse God in the sequel, directed by Alan Taylor, best known for his work on HBO's "Game of Thrones." This kind of spy video is common on a film of Thor: The Dark World's visibility, and we're bound to see a lot more of them as this film and the rest of Marvel's superhero sequels gear up in advance of The Avengers 2, being released in 2015.
You can watch the full fight scene when Thor: The Dark World hits theaters on November 8, 2013.
