Scenic Filming Locations In Iceland Revealed For THOR: THE DARK WORLD?
Now that it's been confirmed that scenes for the anticipated Marvel sequel will be filmed in Iceland, three beautiful locations in the Island country have been identified for the shoot.
We received confirmation just a few days ago that Marvel Studios' forthcoming sequel, Thor: The Dark World will film partly in Iceland, in which ‘Malekith the Accursed’ actor Christopher Eccleston revealed he'll take part in. And now today, three beautifully scenic landmarks in the Nordic Island country have apparently been identified.
According to Þórarinn Björn, @Thrugl on Twitter, the Alan Taylor-production will use a portion of his family's land, which happens to include a beautiful canyon known as Fjaðrárgljúfur. The canyon is located in South East Iceland, while the nature of the shoot is unknown as well as when shooting will take place.
The 2nd shooting location is supposedly one of Iceland's biggest waterfalls, called Skógarfoss. Located in the southern part of the country, according to Reykjavik, access to the waterfall will be limited due to filming for Thor: The Dark World, this Friday.
And last but least, Icelandic site Visir is reporting that the star Chris Hemsworth has been spotted in town, and that he'll be shooting scenes at Landmannalaugar. The famous region, popular for hiking, is located near the volcano Hekla in southern Iceland. Google Translated, the site reports that filming may last a week. Special thanks to @Thor2fans!
