Now that The Avengers has come and… well, it’s definitely not gone yet as it is not relinquishing its grip on the box office, the next few Marvel movies are kicking their own production processes in gear. Iron Man 3 is in pre-production, getting ready to start filming.
This piece is focusing on Thor 2, will begin production in August of 2012 in London primarily and some in Los Angeles. And they are looking for some acting talent for those locations for co-stars and supporting roles, with “Extras, photo-doubles, and stand-ins will be hired in London and various areas of the United Kingdom. ” (See link at bottom of this article.)
According to the story, via the Disney casting call, it’s noted that Thor 2 is going to have more of a Viking-influenced air to it, focusing on the Norse mythology that our Asgardian characters came from.
Other hints include that we’ll be seeing Jane (Natalie Portman), & Loki (Tom Hiddleston) again… as obviously we’ll also be seeing Thor (Chris Hemsworth) for sure.
Other cast in Thor 2 includes Idris Elba (Heimdall), Jaimie Alexander (Sif), Ray Stevenson (Volstagg) and Joshua Dallas as Fandral.
Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) is noted as the director.
The story noted in the casting call suggests that we’ll be seeing what’s been going on since the Asgardians have not been able to use the Bifrost, so we’ll get to see what developments have gone on in the nine realms.
The only other notes are that Loki will have a bit of a part in the troubles, there is going to be a new, different villain and another big villain in Thor 2.
Any guesses as to who one of those villains might be?
If you haven’t seen The Avengers, this will spoil one of the two closing credits scene. Skip straight to the casting call link at the bottom if you don’t want to be spoiled:

Thanos for one. Yep, for those of you who saw the closing credits in The Avengers, we saw Thanos.
My guess is that it will be Thanos passing through Thor 2 because he’s going to be wanting or needing that Infinity Gauntlet that we spotted in the weapons room in the first movie, Thor.
Then he can charge on in to The Avengers 2 with his much coveted gauntlet weapon.
