Our man on the scene, Bo Bory, caught up with the cast for some great 1:1 interviews, which we will be sharing with you over the course of the next few days. But first, we were also asked to participate in a round-robin style cast interview with everyone together, at the same time. We now have the transcript, which you can read for yourself, as it delves into the making of this Marvel Phase Two adventure to answer some of your most burning questions.

Earlier this month, we showed you a set video from Thor: The Dark World featuring a fight scene between Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Christopher Eccleston's Malekith the Accursed. Today, we have even more footage from that scene being shot at the University of Greenwich, featuring Chris Hemsworth being flung high into the air, with the help of some wire work.
