THOR: THE DARK WORLD – new set photos… and Dr. Strange rumor

Posted on September 11, 2012 at 8:45 am by David "Snackbar" Edmundson

Filming is underway on Thor: The Dark World, and judging by these photos it looks like we are in for an epic ride.  Thor: The Dark World opens November 2013, and co-stars Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony  Hopkins and Christopher Eccleston.  Enjoy the photos..

And now a fun little rumor being thrown around.  With Marvel proceeding with Phase 2 of Operation: Film Domination, it was expected that they would begin introducing new heroes into the mix.  According to a Twitter account that previously leaked several spoilers for Captain America 2, Dr. Strange will make an appearance in Thor: The Dark World, and be played by Viggo Mortensen (Lord of the Rings.)  Nothing has been confirmed yet, and it is unknown if Dr. Strange’s involvement will be prominent, minor like Hawkeye in the original Thor, or if he will be teased after the credits.

Looking good, can’t wait to see the final product.  Does Dr. Strange’s involement excite you?

      Grant Imahara posted on his twitter feed pre-T:TDW filming, a pic of a freshly made piece of Dr. Strange's uniform. In addition to being Mythbuster, he also does Hollywood special effects and stuff so, may be connected, may not.

    • Funny, I thought it would be darker.
