FILM crews have been at Stonehenge this morning – and rumour is they were working on upcoming Hollywood blockbuster Thor: The Dark World.
The film, starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddlestone, Stellan Skarsgård and Anthony Hopkins, is to be the eighth instalment in the Marvel Comic adaptations which have been proving a hit with cinemagoers worldwide, as well as a sequel to 2011 film Thor, directed by Kenneth Branagh.
The set at the historic monument was shrouded in secrecy on Wednesday morning but reliable sources state the location shoot for the blockbuster was being done under the film’s working title of Thursday Morning.
Australian heartthrob Hemsworth played Thor in the first film as well as in the recent Avengers movie, and also appeared in The Cabin in the Woods and Snow White and the Huntsman this year as well as 2009’s Star Trek.
Thor: The Dark World continues the adventures of Thor as seen in The Avengers, and is set to be released in November next year.
Filming on the Alan Taylor-directed production has been taking place at various locations in the UK, thought to include London and Bourne Wood near Farnham.
It is not known if any more action is due to take place at Stonehenge.
