What should we expect from next year's Thor: The Dark World? Apparently, at least one fight scene, unsurprisingly: A new video leaked from the set of the movie shows a special-effects-less showdown between Chris Hemsworth's god of thunder and new villain Malekith the Accursed.


The video comes from SplashNewsTV; it's unclear from the angle whether that's actually Christopher Eccleston as Malekith or a stuntman in the costume, but either way, two things are clear: (1) Thor's blows appear to be having no effect, and (2) apparently, simple camera flashes stand in really well for expensive lightning bolts when they're not available.

Thor: The Dark World is due for release in a little under a year (November 8, 2013), and sees the return not only of Hemsworth, but also Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki and, most importantly, Kat Dennings as Darcy. Let's be honest: We could all handle a Darcy spin-off, right?
