Back when Marvel first announced plans to make a Thor movie, they compared it to their version of Lord of the Rings with an adventure spanning all nine realms. Of course the movie we got wasn’t anything like that, but now there’s a rumor that the sequel will possibly be closer to that original idea. Coming Soon found a description of the movie on a Russian site:
“The film promises to cover not just the Earth and Asgard,” reads the loose translation of a report from a Russian Cinema Expo, “but the entire Nine Realms. The studio hopes that ‘Game of Thrones’ director Alan Taylor has the experience to build upon the fantasy of the series.”
Some people felt that Asgard in the first movie did feel a little too SciFi when compared to the more fantasy feel in the comics. Taking the movie through the nine realms would show off the fantasy setting of the Thor mythos, and the early leaked set pics and footage does look like they’re going for a more fantasy feel with the sequel.
