The latest featurette (which promises to be on the Iron Man 3 DVD/Blu-Ray release) for Thor: The Dark World is basically just the actors explaining to us how incredibly epicly epic everything is going to be. Which we couldn’t have figured out from the excellent trailers we’ve aready seen.
Still. A few more glimpses couldn’t hurt, right?
So keep an eye for the roots of the world tree, Heimdall’s helmet being set down in front of Thor (presumably by Heimdall), and some gorgeous landscapes that are probably magical. Amongst many other lovely things.
Time for some wild speculation based on really pretty screencaps!
By Odin’s ravens it’s...Odin’s ravens! Nice one, Thor: The Dark World.
Jane is in a lot of these screencaps because she is up to a lot of weird stuff, it seems! She and Thor are here in a cavern, but is this near the end of the film? It’s an intimate scene, judging by the camera set-up. Are they saying goodbye?
Look at how cute these two are! Jane is astounded and Thor is so proud he can barely keep the smile off of his face. We think these two kids are going to be alright, you guys.
Or not, because what is this weird-looking flying ship thing doing?
Oh, clearly crashing into Asgard. But why?
In the first Thor film, Thor explained the different realms as essentially different parts of the World Tree. Is this an actual root from it?
Our production manager Chris refuses to believe that this isn’t Arthur Darvill from Doctor Who. “Rory? Rory what you are doing there?” he keeps asking. “Do you work for Thor now that you can’t work for the Doctor?”
A clearly ravaged Thor, Jane, and Loki hike towards an icy plain. They look pretty banged up, and the trailers have shown dark elves on those same plains before.
Christopher Eccleston’s antagonist Malekith, holding Jane in this weird swirling dust storm seemingly by force of will. Thor seems to be on the other side of the storm, trying to get in.
Thor’s mom Frigga, about to cut someone up while her son’s human girlfriend watches. This is probably going to be an awesome scene.
Whaaat is going on here?
