Thor: The Dark World is currently shooting in London, and we know this superhero sequel will take place both on Earth and the mythical land of Asgard. Today, we have word from Disney's presentation at Cinema Expo 2012 that the superhero sequel will take us to all nine realms.
Thor: The Dark World may feature all nine realms
"The film promises to cover not only the Earth and Asgard, but also all the nine worlds. The studio hopes that the director of Game of Thrones, Alan Taylor, with his experience creating fantasy series, will perfectly cope with a problem of building the mythical world in a new movie."
The other realms include Vanaheim, Alfheim, Nidavellir, Midgard (Earth), Jotunheim, home to the Frost Giants, Svartalheim, The Dark Elves' homeland, Hel a.k.a Land of the Dead, and Muspelheim, home to the fire demons. We reported in June that the sequel will feature the Dark Elves, lead by Christopher Eccleston's Malekith the Accursed. It isn't known how the other realms will fit into the story line.
Thor: The Dark World comes to theaters November 8th, 2013 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston. The film is directed by Alan Taylor.
