THOR: THE DARK WORLD To Feature ALL of the Nine Realms After All?

THOR: THE DARK WORLD To Feature ALL of the Nine Realms After All?

It's been widely assumed, but we may finally have confirmation that all of Norse Mythology's nine realms will be seen in the anticipated Marvel sequel, Thor: The Dark World. Check it out!

First alluded to when Marvel Studios’ President of Production, Kevin Feige, stated that Thor: The Dark World will explore the “broader stakes for the Nine Worlds,” it's unclear whether he was speaking indirectly about a specific realm or multiple ones. And since then, we’ve yet to receive confirmation that each of Norse Mythology’s nine realms, beyond those included in the first film, will be featured and explored in the sequel.

The casting of actors Christopher Eccleston and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, filling the roles of ‘Malekith’ and ‘Kurse,’ has already confirmed that the home of the Dark Elves, Svartalfheim, will have a big part in the Alan Taylor-directed venture. But now we may finally have confirmation of the other realms of Yggdrasil, the world tree.

Excerpted from Kinopoisk’s coverage of Russia’s annual Cinema Expo 2012, where Marvel Studios have showcased exclusive movie content years prior while under Paramount's distribution, Walt Disney Studios’ presentation apparently included concept art for Thor: The Dark World and more. In a rough translation, the site reports:

“At the presentation, we were presented concept art from which it was possible to understand the scenery of the film will fill the space. The film promises to cover not only the Earth and Asgard, but also all the nine worlds. The studio hopes that the director Alan Taylor, who has experience creating fantasy series, perfectly cope with the task of building the mythical world in the new movie about the god with the hammer.”

If not taken out of context, it seems we have Alfheim, home to the light elves, Vanaheim, home of the Vanir gods, Nidavellir, home of the Dwarves, Hel, home to the deceased of all the realms, and Muspelheim, home of the Fire Demons, to look forward to next year. However, considering each realm is home to many of Thor’s core villains from the comics, like Hela and Surtur, I wouldn't be surprised if all we get are brief glimpses of each world over a cheesy intro narration. Of course, Marvel are full of surprises. What do you think?


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.

dezdigi - 9/26/2012, 9:57 AM
I hope they don't bog this down too much. I would rather they kept it to a four realms at the most. But who am I?
Most importantly, I want a good story and great acting!
At some point, I would like to see Hela. After watching Thor VS. Hulk, Hela freaked me out!
BRandom - 9/26/2012, 9:57 AM
That's really going to up the scale of this film...and I like it!

-thor (loki)
-thor 2 (hela & surtur)

GetsugaTensho22 - 9/26/2012, 10:32 AM
Why is it that Humanity is always the most boring race?
I mean, i hate to sound egotistical, but come on, shouldn't there be some interpretation where one of the other realms is backward? or one that's not obviously medi-eval like ours even if it is backward?
ManThing - 9/26/2012, 10:35 AM
This sounds like it has the makings of a an excellent science fiction film.

I truly hope that the different realms aren't too much like Midgard. I want to see strange flora and fauna and loads of magic.
Lightsplasher - 9/26/2012, 10:38 AM

calin88 - 9/26/2012, 11:04 AM
I call BS, you just can't have 6 new location and not explain their background a bit, I think 3 for each movie would be enough
Ha1frican - 9/26/2012, 11:45 AM
Im hoping for an end credits scene teasing the whereabouts of Red Skull
AlexDeLarge87 - 9/26/2012, 11:51 AM
Thor is screwed!:)

I hope they make a saga of Thor films.
AlexDeLarge87 - 9/26/2012, 11:53 AM
If they ever put Surtur on the big screen that would a dream come true.

Surtur made in the same fashion like Tim Curry´s Darkness.
Ha1frican - 9/26/2012, 12:03 PM
I want Surtur to look like the Balrog from Fellowship of the ring but bigger.
nowtheresaBATman - 9/26/2012, 12:04 PM
9 Realms & 7 Hells! ;)
TayDee - 9/26/2012, 12:16 PM
