Natalie Portman Wields Mysterious Device Filming Scenes For THOR: THE DARK WORLD
Scenes filmed today for Marvel’s much-anticipated Thor: The Dark World involved ‘Jane Foster’ and ‘Erik Selvig’ actors Natalie Portman and Stellan Skarsgård. And set photos via the Daily Mail feature the pair running from or to an unknown danger, likely to be the London invasion of Dark Elves. What’s more interesting is some sort of plot device Portman is holding as the cameras roll. She was seen wielding the same mechanism in videos earlier this week, but check it out below. Also, today is reportedly the last day we'll see principal cast members of the Alan Taylor-directed Thor follow-up. Detailing what took place today, Tumblr user Princehals reports:
Running alongside Erik Selvig actor Stellan Skarsgård as the cameras roll on the London set, Jane Foster actress Natalie Portman holds a strange plot device in recent photos from Thor: The Dark World set.
Apparently they were still shooting Jane & Selvig scenes, and we saw Natalie Portman coming to and from set a couple of times. Other than that, not much else was going on - at about one o'clock, it started to rain, so they began clearing up. Several crew members saw us stood in the rain and explained that all the main cast had left for the day; also that Unit 1 were leaving today, and that from now it'll just be Unit 2 until Sunday, which apparently means stunts, explosions, extras, and no main cast. Somewhat more interesting though - I went and checked the name on the trailer door; the one that began as Jane's, and was then Malekith's - it now says “Ian [Boothby].”
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.
