Thor: The Dark World – Chris Hemsworth and Christopher Eccleston Tease Info
Currently filming in London, the Thor sequel, The Dark World, is set to decamp to Iceland very soon, according to star Christopher Eccleston.
Eccleston, who is playing Malekith the Accursed, confirming rumours that arose in August while appearing at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, and saying he’d be one of the actors heading up there.
Director Alan Taylor has previously filmed in Iceland for Game Of Thrones, and the country also recently provided the backdrop for scenes in Prometheus.
Meanwhile, Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, has been talking about Alan Taylor‘s approach to the fantasy in the film in an interview with Prestige Hong Kong magazine. Seems the tone of the film could be very different to Kenneth Brannagh’s version: “I love the way he adds an incredibly organic element to the fantastical world of Thrones, and I think that’s what Thor could benefit from. It’s grounded in reality, no matter how mythical or science-fiction-like it becomes. There’s a truth to it all. Certainly, working with him now, you can see he doesn’t want Thor or the Asgardians to seem like some distant race or god-like. He still wants them to be relatable.”
