Back in September, Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige gave an early synopsis for Thor 2, which revealed the movie to be a tad bit more cosmic. In doing so, Feige made mention of the Nine Worlds of Norse Mythology (see right).
"[The sequel] will literally take Thor to other worlds," Feige said. "[Thor 2 would] primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and how the new dynamic with his father (Odin, played by Anthony Hopkins) is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds."
Now in an article on the Russian website, Kinopoisk, we get further confirmation of the Nine Worlds, but this time it seems as if all the Nine Worlds will be featured (translated):
The film promises to cover not just the Earth and Asgard but the entire Nine Worlds. The studio hopes that Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor has the experience to build upon the fantasy of the series.
Now this could either mean that Thor will be making his way from realm to realm during Thor 2 — perhaps searching for something (Infinity Gems?), or possibly it may refer to denizens of all the Nine Worlds appearing in the movie.
Already we have seen a plethora of Thor 2 set images from the Bourne Wood, England battle scene seemingly reveal many different aliens and species.
Thor 2: The Dark World hammers into theaters November 8th, 2013 directed by Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimidall, Zachary Levi as Fandral and Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed, Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Kurse.
