THOR: THE DARK WORLD Bourne Wood Set Gets Adorned As Filming Nears Kickoff

The finishing touches are being added to the “fictional village” set of Thor: The Dark World, as the commencement of filming nears at the Bourne Wood location. Check out photos after the jump!

Filming for the eighth installment to the ever-expanding Marvel cinematic universe, Thor: The Dark World, will officially start tomorrow. Although, action won't take place until next week at the “fictional village,” where a battle between two kingdoms will ensue, built for the production in Bourne Wood, England. And showcasing set preparations at the location being near-complete, photos via Wayne Howes and various others have surfaced.

The first four photos below were taken earlier this week, while the others that follow were taken just yesterday.

Also, the star behind the God of Thunder himself, Chris Hemsworth, attended last night's GQ Men of the Year Awards in London, where he was awarded the International Breakthrough award. Pictured beneath the set photos, the 29-year-old Aussie actor was sporting a full beard seemingly in preparation for the Marvel sequel.

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.
