Natalie Portman is terrified in 'Thor: The Dark World' image

Natalie Portman's Jane Foster does not look very happy in the latest still to be released from "Thor: The Dark World." In the image, Thor's mother Frigga (played by Rene Russo) wields a sword while Jane, dressed in full Asgard regalia, stands terrified in the background.

But what are they staring at? It likely isn't Tom Hiddleston's Loki, who was soundly defeated in "The Avengers." It's more likely that it's Christopher Eccleston's dark elf leader Malekith the Accursed, who is the main villain in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

The trailer for "Thor: The Dark World" already revealed that Portman comes to Asgard, and also teases that Malekith kidnaps her. It could be that this is the scene where Thor loses the woman he loves to his enemy.

"Thor: The Dark World" is due in theaters on Nov. 8. It also stars Chris Hemsworth, Jaimie Alexander, Anthony Hopkins, Kat Dennings and Zachary Levi.
