Thor 2 (2013) To Film In Iceland


It's been rumored that we might see all of the Nine Worlds in Thor 2, "The Dark World," and now we get word that the movie will be filming in Iceland, perhaps for scenes for Niffleheim.

Director Alan Taylor will be taking Thor 2 to Iceland after shooting wraps in England. Currently, Taylor has been filming a major battle sequence in Bourne Wood, England.

The Icelandic site Svarthofdi.is (Via Latino Review) let the news be known and makes note that Alan Taylor was recently there to film Game of Thrones as well.

"We feel amazing to travel to a world that looks like those we are trying to create. It gives us all inspiration," Taylor recently stated about filming Game of Thrones in Iceland (translated).
