As Marvel gears up for its post-Avengers onslaught of sequels, one of the more interesting ones on the horizon has to be Thor: The Dark World. Unlike Iron Man 3 or Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Dark World won’t exclusively take place on Earth, as much of the action will unfold across the various “nine worlds” of the Marvel Universe. Now, courtesy of the Daily Mail, we’re perhaps getting our first glimpse at one of these worlds in these set photos from the movie.

Right away we see Jaimie Alexander back as Lady Sif, who was criminally underused in the first Thor. We also get a few requisite explosion shots, as well as a brief look at the soldiers of Asgard and the mysterious villains they'll be fighting against. Unfortunately there are no shots of Chris Hemsworth as Thor here, but we're sure those will come along soon. Check out the photos below.

Thor: The Dark World will be released on November 8, 2013.
