    Thor 2: The Dark World is now rolling.

    The first photos have surfaced from the set of the highly anticipated sequel to Marvel's 2011 Thor, which started principal photography yesterday.

    And by the looks of the sneak peeks, Thor and his comrades would appear to have gone all Game of Thrones on us given the heavy medieval-fantasy elements running through an action-packed sequence cast and crew decided to tackle first.

    Thor sequel gets a villain: who will Chris Hemsworth throw his hammer at?

    Maybe that has something to do with the fact that Thor 2's director, Alan Taylor, is a veteran of the critically acclaimed HBO series.

    Either way, Chris Hemsworth is looking divine as everyone's favorite hammer-wielding superhero who's about kick some major butt as he and his fellow Asgardians go up against Marvel baddie Malekith, the ruler of the Dark Elves played by British thesp Christopher Eccleston.

    The first day of filming also saw Taylor coordinate a battle scene featuring actress Jaimie Alexander in her role as Asgardian warrior Sif. Despite a bloody cut to her forehead, Sif was filmed riding her horse through a host of golden-armored soldiers, sword held high and poised to strike.
