<i>Thor: The Dark World</i> Set Photos Reveal Chris Hemsworth in Action

On the heels of the first wave of battle-scene photos from the set of Thor: The Dark World, Splash News has released another round of images from Bourne Wood, Surrey, this time featuring star Chris Hemsworth alongside Jaimie Alexander.

While fans undoubtedly will be happy to see the thunder god again -- even if it's only been a few months since Marvel's The Avengers -- the most interesting thing about these new photos is the armored man to Hemsworth's right in the above image. Yes, the guy in the merman-like helmet. Is he one of the warrior-creatures we saw in the earlier set, or someone (something?) else entirely?

See more photos below, and check out the entire set on the Splash News website.

Directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), Thor: The Dark World also stars Tom Hiddleston, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Zachary Levi, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and, potentially, former Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston. The film opens Nov. 8, 2013.
