The filming for Thor 2: The Dark World is going to be starting up soon, so naturally people are grabbing at every bit of information they can find to figure out what’s going on behind the scenes.  The latest news consists of a revelation that the crew will be using the underground tunnels of London to do a fair amount of filming for the new flick.  Of course, with a name like The Dark World, I guess it comes as no surprise that they’d need some dark places.

But why so dark, Thor?  Speculation abounds, much of it concerning the possible use of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim as one of the main antagonists of the new film.  Fans of the comics know that the Dark Elves sometimes have dark homes and this latest report would seem to confirm the aforementioned rumor.  Unless, perhaps, this is just the first stage in a Thor / TMNT cross-over.

What do the fair Nerdreaders have to say about this one?  Are the Dark Elves a good choice of baddie to pit the hammer-wielding Asgardian against this time around?

For those that would rather just wait and see, expect Thor 2: The Dark World to hit theaters November 8th of next year.
