Did you know?
According to Jake Morrison, the Harrows navigation interface was a great way to combine outside with inside environments: "It projects the surroundings on a bubble around you. With some cockpit shots in other films, you'd cut from the exteriors that would be frenetic and fast-paced into potentially quite a dark interior with a lot of dialogue - you can make the outside very exciting but when you get into the cockpit, how do you make that stuff fun?"

According to the filmmakers, amongst the Marauders the Asgardians arrest and imprison are Korbinites. These are a race of aliens Thor encountered; one of them, Beta Ray Bill, became Thor's ally and was deemed worthy to receive an Asgardian hammer of his own.

Christopher Eccleston describes Malekith as a tragic villain: "What I thought about a great deal was revenge. One quote is: 'When you seek revenge, be sure to dig two graves.' I did a film called Revengers Tragedy (2002) where I played a guy called Vindici-from the word 'vindictive'-and he is the distillation of revenge. So, in a way, that was what I had to think of: how revenge can make you absolutely monomaniacal-though you're still trying to make it recognizably motive-led. It's just the personification of movie evil."

Despite being labelled by Odin as one of the most powerful artifacts in the universe, the Aether is seemingly unable to do any form of damage against Thor during the final fight against Malekith.

Near the start of the film a shot of the London skyline shows the new 'walkie talkie' skyscraper as nearly complete. During the final battle a few shots show it several months earlier, with the building at a much earlier stage in the build. In the final scenes you see the building again, at yet another stage of development.

Does this movie have an end-credit scene?
Yes. Thor: The Dark World has two after-credits scenes, one involving The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) and his aide (Ophelia Lovibond) from Guardians of the Galaxy and another involving Thor and Jane.
Who are the villains?
The primary villain is Malekith (Christopher Eccleston). A secondary villain is Algrim/Kurse (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is also a major character, but in a less obviously-villainous role.
