Thor: The Dark World (no relation to Star Trek Into Darkness) has finally started production in Bourne Wood, Surrey, and there are already a metric metaphoric ton of behind the scenes photos infesting the internet. Our associates at Superhero Hype have many of them online courtesy of WENN, but The Daily Mail has some of the higher quality images available, courtesy of Flynet. We're posting a few of the better images available, but there are dozens more if you're looking for variations (many of the behind the scenes photos are from the exact same angle).

Thor: The Dark World stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. This time, Thor takes on the evil elf Malekith the Accursed, played by former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston, and Kurse, played by "Lost" co-star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. As you can see from the pictures, Jaimie Alexander is back as well, although these pictures may imply that she'll be fighting against the god of thunder, not with him.

Thor: The Dark World opens in theaters on November 8, 2013.
