UPDATED: Thor arrives on set! Thor: The Dark World set pics reveal Sif on horseback, explosions, monsters and armor
UPDATED: Thor has joined the fight! Chris Hemsworth has arrived on set to join Lady Sif in the village beatdown, showing off some modified armor and much longer hair, which again likens the film to it's more Conan-esque look. Scroll down to get in on the battle!
Filming is currently underway in the Bourne Woods of Surrey, England, where a veritable force of extras, props, and live-action set pieces are abound for the Marvel Phase Two sequel, THOR: THE DARK WORLD. And through the smoke emerged none other than Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, the female warrior and often lover of the God of Thunder, riding on horseback, sword in hand, bloodied and ready for battle.
The set has been under construction for some time now and it appears to be in full use. No sightings of Chris Hemsworth as Thor just yet, but you can expect plenty of sneak peeks as this film gets deep into production. Although there's no explanation as to what scene is being shot, the appearance of a monster-like creature and the horned-armor of the Asgardian warriors is enough to denote a battle (unless the explosion didn't give it away) in the village-like setting.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD opens on November 8, 2013.
|Extra Tidbit:||I'm digging the fact that Taylor is directing and the emphasis on having a grittier, more "Earthy" tone to the sets this time out. Feels more Conan than Sci-Fi, which I prefer. What do you think?|
