Filming at the famous Stonehenge historical site proved to be a challenge. After finally getting permission from English Heritage, the filmmakers found out that there were lots of rules and regulations associated with filming there. They could only be in amongst the stones outside of the normal visiting hours. So shooting had to take place early in the morning before opening, which only gave the film crew about three hours before they had to pull back for wider shots, once the stones were opened to the public. Being a heritage site, no one was allowed to touch the stones, nor walk on any of them, so a lot of logistics had to be applied to the filming there.
Long before the birth of light, there was darkness... and from that darkness came the Dark Elves. Millennia ago, the most ruthless of their kind, Malekith, sought to transform our universe back into one of eternal night. Such evil was possible ...
(at around 46 mins) When Malekith enters the Asgard throne room, he detonates a grenade which destroys Odin's throne. However, when Odin and a host of soldiers enters the throne room seconds later, the throne appears to be still intact.
There is a scene at the end of the closing credits: Thor returns to Earth to be with Jane... and the monster that came to Midgard is still running around.
