As director Kenneth Brannagh's adaptation of "Thor" enters its second month of principal photography, actress Jaimie Alexander — who will portray Sif — has continued to provide constant updates via her twitter account. With production of the film scheduled to move from Los Angeles to Santa Fe, New Mexico; Alexander may have inadvertently revealed a minor plot point of the upcoming film.
In a recent twitter post, Alexander indicated that she is still training because she "must get even more fit before heading off to Santa Fe!" Since most of the scenes set in Asgard have been filmed in Los Angeles, this may mean that Sif will also be traveling to Earth during the film. Or it could simply mean that Santa Fe will also be used for external scenes in Asgard.
Alexander has also disclosed that legendary "Thor" writer/artist Walt Simonson has visited the set. "[I] got an autograph and a drawing from Walter Simonson... AMAZE BALLS! wooooooohooooooooo!"
During an interview with Collider, Kat Dennings — one of Alexander's co-stars in "Thor" — stated that she had yet to film her part in the movie.
"All my stuff is towards the end... towards the end of the shoot," said Dennings. "I just can’t wait. Everytime… I remember when I had fittings like before I left I had a bunch of fittings and a bunch of hair and makeup tests and I was so excited. I would wake up like an hour or two early. Because I mean it’s Kenneth Brannagh man. I mean he is one of the greats. One of the legends."
"It’s the kind of thing as a little kid that you want to do," added Dennings. "I mean my brother had all those comic books and he had action figures and I grew up with that stuff. So, it’s almost like wanting to be a Princess. It’s like you want to be a superhero, too. It’s incredible. It’s such a dream. I really can’t believe I’m in this movie. I’m so excited. I’ve been thinking about it. It’s almost like when little kids know they’re going to Disneyland and they get really excited and start counting the days. That’s how I am."
Dennings also confirmed reports that her character was created for the film and that her character will be a friend of Jane Foster, who will be played by Natalie Portman.
"Thor" is scheduled for release May 2011.
