Re: Is Svartalfheim and the other Nine Realms what you expected them to look like?
A question to those that are familiar with the comics. It might have been answered, but is Svartalfheim nothing but what looks like a barren wasteland? In the movie, Thor and Loki are traveling around the realm, and we see destroyed Dark Elves ships, which I'm assuming is from the war that was shown as the intro. Do the Dark Elves have cities/towns like Asgard? I saw the picture in the OP, so they live like Elves of Mirkwood? I was under the assumption that we only saw a portion of their realm that the movie takes place in.
