Since before the sequel started production over the summer, we've known that Thor: The Dark World would find the Asgardian Avenger facing off against the villainous Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, led by Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed. Thanks to a pair of new unofficial photos from the set, the Dark Elves themselves stand revealed in all their creepy alien glory.
Thor: The Dark World, the sophomore feature in Marvel Studios' "Phase Two" continues to shoot in and around London under the code name Thursday Morning.

Thor: The Dark World, the second entry in Marvel Studios' second phase of cinematic universe-building, is currently filming in and around London, England.

With The Avengers, we know that the hammer-wielding Asgardian deity can handle being part of a team onscreen.

Currently in production in London, the sequel is set for next November, and Chris Hemsworth is talking about returning to the role for time number three.

Michel Hazanavicius, fresh off his win for last year's The Artist, directing Academy Award winning actors Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman in a drama based on a bestselling work of historical narrative non-fiction that follows an American diplomat in Nazi Berlin prior to WWII? If it all works out, In the Garden of Beasts could be a formidable prestige picture.
The sequel Thor: The Dark World is now shooting a big sequence on location in the U.K., and some new, thoroughly unofficial set photos show off a pretty large scale, some explosions, one creature, and Lady Sif throwing down on horseback.
Even when he's in a movie like, say, Prometheus, that inspires no end of criticism and bitching, Michael Fassbender emerges unscathed.

A month ago to the day, we learned that next year's Marvel sequel Thor: The Dark World is using the code-title Thursday Morning and will film an action sequence in the Bourne Wood, a forest near Farnham, Surrey, England.

Have you ever heard the saying that a plan is simply a list of things that don't happen? Well, the plan has long been to theatrically re-release all six movies in the Star Wars franchise. In 3D.
