Thor: The Dark World UK filming locations

Wednesday 18 November 2015

Emma Pill, Location Manager on Thor: The Dark World, chooses two of her favourite UK locations appearing in the upcoming Marvel superhero movie. Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London "The Old Royal Naval College was chosen for many reasons. Firstly for its significance in the story, portraying the location where all the worlds are to align, being the home to GMT. Secondly for its grandeur and visually beautiful architecture. And thirdly, a substantial amount of filming was required for the final battle and we required a location that was controllable during the week. The location is not only a World Heritage Site, but it is also the home to the University of Greenwich and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and dance, so whilst working with the Old Royal Naval College we had to be very considerate to the University, and the School of Music's needs." Old royal Naval College Old Royal Naval College OXO Brasserie, London "The OXO Brasserie was chosen as the location for the scene for Jane's date with Richard, where Darcy decides to gatecrash. We chose the OXO Brasserie for many reasons. The OXO tower has one of the best views of London which in turn immediately sets the story in the centre of the Capital. The OXO has great light and style and it was a pleasure to work with the team at  Harvey Nichols who own the restaurant." Natalie Portman at Oxo Tower Thor: The Dark World is on general release from 30 October.
