Filming of Thor: The Dark World has now been completely finished. Leifur Dagfinnsson, CEO of True North, confirms the news in an interview with the Icelandic local media Vísir.
2012 has been a busy year for film makers in Iceland. They have had a full season of assisting the bigger foreign companies. Thor was the fourth Hollywood movie filmed in Iceland this year.
Before Thor 2, Tom Cruise was here to film Oblivion, Russell Crowe & Jennifer Connelly were here for Noah and Ben Stillers Secret life of Walter Mitty was also filmed in Iceland.
According to our sources one of the biggest fighting scenes for Thor was filmed here in Iceland, a great battle between the titans Thor and Loki. Chris Hemsworth will play the role of Thor and Tom Hiddleston the role of Loki. Will be quite interesting to say the least!
We have three confirmed locations of where the movie was filmed in Iceland, Skogarfoss, Thorsmork and Fjaðrargljufur.
When following people discussions on the social media I noticed that many seem to be think that Skogarfoss is the same waterfall as was used in the beginning of the movie Promotheus, where life began. This is however incorrect. The waterfall in Promotheus is another waterfall in Iceland and is called Dettifoss
