Re: Thor 2 -Movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2013

This is from the Wiki article about the sequel.

The same month, Feige stated the sequel would "take Thor literally to other worlds" and would "primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster and how the new dynamic with his father is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds".

It could be a reference to Svartalfheim, the home of the Dark Elves. Malekith, a member of Thor's rogues gallery, is the king of the Dark Elves.
Seems highly likely. This is an update with a shaker of salt perhaps but if true lends heavy credence to Skywalkers post.
Thanks to a brief chat with Hollywood stunt man James Grogan, we may have our answer. Whilst discussing the importance of acting chops in stunt work, Grogan related the experience to a certain Marvel film that he’s currently training for. “The other day for example, this is quite random but I was working on Thor 2,” he explains, “I had a load of stunt guys in and the director came in and he said ‘Look, we want you all to be elves,’ and I was like ‘What the hell is an elf anyway?’ and he said ‘I want you all to walk around like these supernatural animals,’ honestly it was the most ridiculous thing ever but you just have to not be self aware and get on with it.”

Not to be too fussy, but I'm going to go ahead and assume stunt-people who elves are silly in a post-LOTR, post-Avatar world is already not "self-aware."

Location and a description of a scene. Apparently, the movie is using the working title (or probably more accurately, "decoy title") of "Thursdays's Morning"

The Ninth Doctor checks into Svartalfheim, Christopher Eccleston plays the leader of the Dark Elves, Malekith, who I can't say I'm familiar with at all...but very cool casting!

Malekith was a part of Walter Simonson's big Surtur story-- he is the one who unleashed the Casket of Ancient Winters upon the Earth. AFAIK, he last appeared in the The Incredible Hercules arc that guest-starred Thor and the Warriors Three.

ETA: Oh--Christopher Eccleston. Cool.

Christopher Eccleston as Melekith is fantastic casting in my opinion.

I like what I'm hearing!!!
As a personal preference I do hope we get more Thor wearing his helmet this film.
It doesn't have to be the whole time, it can get knocked off but I'd like more of him with the helmet this time.

I don't really know the character (I've seen all of Season 1 of EMH, but I don't remember him, and I haven't read any Thor comics), but I like Eccleston, so this is good news to me.

Just saw something about Ecclestone being involved. Nice addition to the cast.

Well, we could all write and mention that if Thor actually wears the helmet then they'll see a lot more helmet sales in the toy stores.

Thats a great point! I heard it was uncomfortable for him to wear. You think they would just make a new version that improves that. But it is odd to expect strong toy sales that have little connection to what is in the actual movie. Its not like the usual masks issue were its hard for the actor to act behind.
