Okay so the lead for the head villain was cast and it looks like the Dark Elves are going to be the main bad guys in this, which I like. They have a lot of magic and are not nice guys, lol. Very interested to see how they are going to do this but it looks like most of Thor will take place off of Earth and I like that a lot.
Yeah, it's sounded like it was gonna be the Dark Elves for a while. They don't exactly have the same draw as Loki does, as a villain, so there's definitely gonna have to be some other important stuff going on, on the side, then. I'm glad it won't be on Earth too much, though, since I thought the first movie was better outside of Earth than it was during the parts on Earth.
I like the bare arm look better myself, but it looks really good! But I liked the armor in Thor 1 and it's basically the same, haha. It looks like Thor and Sif are protecting the village from the Orc-looking guys. Good to see Sif getting in on the action more than she did in the last movie, hopefully we'll get more Warriors Three too!
First look (although probably not final version) at the villain. He has some dots on his face, probably for some CGI enhancement of some sort. Mt first impression - looks good. From what I've seen of Malekith, his look in the comic is very......well "comic book-y". I like what they've done to adapt him into the MCU. I'm looking forward to seeing a "final version".
A while back it was reported that Jaime Alexander (Sif) was injured on set. She recently reported some more details of her injury-
“It was raining, it was dark outside, it was like 5 in the morning — and I went down a metal staircase and slipped and slipped a disc in my thoracic spine and chipped 11 of my vertebrae. I knocked my left shoulder out of place and tore my rhomboid on my right side . . . It took me out of filming for a month. I heal really fast. Everyone thinks it’s really funny to tease me about staircases now that I fell down one . . . I’m walking in heels again though, so that’s a good sign.”
Ouch! Sounds like a pretty speedy recovery, though, so that is good.
