As previously reported, principal photography is finally underway for the much-anticipated Marvel sequel, Thor: The Dark World. And commencing production on the set in Bourne Wood, Farnham, Surrey, England, that's doubling for a fictional village, photos have surfaced capturing distant bits of the action via @lucyspong & @MattWarnerpt

In regards to the action, the sequence that's being filmed involves an battle between Asgardian warriors and an army race known as Marauders. And although scheduled to be filmed on at later date, Thor himself is expected to make a grand entrance into the battle. Reportedly featuring almost 300 extras, the shoot will last 10 days.















Exploring Thor's relationship with the Asgardian all-father Odin, as well earthbound companion Jane Foster, “Thor: The Dark World” follows the God of Thunder to The Nine Realms beyond Asgard and earth. And as his evil half-brother, Loki, returns for Asgardian justice, a new threat rises. Also rejoining Thor are his fellow Asgardians, Lady Sif, gatekeeper Heimdall and Warriors Three, as they encounter mythical Norse creatures among evildoers.

“Thor: The Dark World” stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Stellan Skarsgard, Ray Stevenson, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Rene Russo, with Alice Krige & Kat Dennings. And Alan Taylor (“Game of Thrones”) takes over directorial duties from Kenneth Branagh, who helmed the first “Thor” film. From a screenplay by Don Payne and Robert Rodat, “Thor: The Dark World” is set for release on November 8, 2013.

"Today I watched Sir Anthony Hopkins learn how to appropriately handle a raven"

I guess he has been handling them inappropriately all this time. Naughty, Anthony, very naughty...

I just hope they make it as epic as it should be!

Thor should be epic just like the movies Gladiator, Troy, and Kingdome Of Heaven.

The first Thor was good but not epic enough, and the fight scene with the Destroyer was a dissapointment.

Thor is a freaking God and should be powerful beyond belief, he should be more powerful than the Hulk! No matter what the Gamma rays did to Bruce Banner, he is still just a man!

No way a man can beat a God!

Thor should be epic, the scale should be very huge!
