The reason I say this is because I was wondering about that most recent set shot at the university, that showed Malekith cornering Jane and Selvig; then Thor steps in and manhandles him and shoves him back. Question: can anyone see Mjolnir on Thor's belt in those scenes....? Because I can't understand why he wouldn't have just laid the hammer down on the Dark Elf king instead of resorting to rasslin'....?

I agree with Elizah. Also, Thor's costume in the MCU doesn't have a belt. (Seems kind of silly, because it means he always has to set it down and then call for it. But maybe it looked silly on a belt.)
Now, it could be that Thor set Mjolnir down in the yard behind where they are at in that shot, and we can't see it because it is screened by the roof.
Another idea about pushing Malekith: do his spells have a range limit? So maybe Thor pushes him away so Malekith isn't close enough to cast spells on Jane & Co.
Welcome, Ezio! Glad you joined us!
