In the sizzle reel of footage producer Craig Kyle played for us in the Thor: The Dark World art room, there was a shot of stonehenge. We asked if it played into the story to which he vaguely replied
“It definitely plays into the storyline, yeah.”
We know they shot on location in Wiltshire, England, and Stonehenge remains a real-life source of mystery and scientific debate as to its origins and whether it was used as an astronomical observatory or as a religious site – both of which could play into the Thor lore.
There are connections from the Thor comics to Arthurian legend which we believe may have ties to the film (see: Cursing Iron).
