There weren't any main cast members of the Marvel sequel sighted, however, Chris Hemsworth's ‘Thor’ stunt-double, Bobby Holland Hanton, and Christopher Eccleston's ‘Malekith’ double returned to The Dark World set today. And action with the Accursed villain and his Dark Elf army feature in new photos (via @MisterGreenwich) and scene details (via Expederest), while videos (courtesy of @Nailbiter via BadTaste) show the titular hero going airborne seemingly at their force.
(Spoiler Warning)“All the rubble and stuff is from a spaceship that crashes into the grounds. It’ll be added with CGI later on. So will more of the damage caused by the crash. The wing also destroys the pillars on the left (in this picture), that are covered with blue. Malekith leads an army of elves over the rubble, which is where the ship would of crash landed. On Monday, they were filming a scene that was supposed to be set outside Charing Cross underground station. I assumed this meant that Greenwich was just doubling for other areas as normal. However, it’s actually also doubling for itself! From what I remember, there are two worlds occupying the same space, and it has something to do with the Prime Meridian Line (or timeline as the guy insisted on calling it. I vaguely remember them saying it has a mystical or magical aspect about it.”
Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
