Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and his shiny, lightning-shootin’ hammer were nowhere to be seen around “Thor 2: The Dark World’s” Bourne Woods, Surrey set, but Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) was there to do her thing — on horseback, no less. Get a gander at a bunch of extras, Jaimie Alexander, and what looks like a battle scene being filmed on the set of “Thor 2: The Dark World”, scheduled to open November 2013. It sure looks a lot more, well, medieval than the last film, doesn’t it?
The Marvel Studios sequel, currently being directed by “Game of Thrones” vet Alan Taylor, will return Hemsworth as Thor, the God of Thunder, along with Natalie Portman as his mortal lady love Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as the mischievous Loki, and Anthony Hopkins as pop Odin.
The plot finds Thor battling new villain Christopher Eccleston, playing Malekith The Accursed, the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim who, along with Thor’s half-brother/nemesis Loki, conspire to make the hero’s life just a tad more difficult once again.
