Screen Rant visited the production of Thor: The Dark World last October and while exploring the sets and sound stages, playing with otherworldly weapons and walking past soldiers from other realms, we spent time with the cast and crew who were excited to share details on the universe and story they were crafting.
We’ve compiled a list of the most interesting new elements and info bits from our discussions and tours with the stars of the film, director Alan Taylor, executive producer Craig Kyle, props supervisor Barry Gibbs, production designer Charles Wood, special makeup effects designer David White and visual effects supervisor Jake Morrison.
