Well, she does research on Einstein-Rosen bridges and certain anomalies that brought her to the New Mexico desert in the first film. The Foster Theory has something to do with the structure of Yggdrasil and how Einstein-Rosen bridges form interconnections therein.

I would assume the gadget allows her to take measurements when she is in the vicinity of some portal opening, or when she is observing some similar phenomenon. What few stills I am able to find of her equipment in Thor1 do not show anything bearing any resemblance to this device. But it could well be that this prop was indeed used in that film and no one posted a picture.

It also doesn't look like the device in the alternate ending that makes the image of Yggdrasil and shoots the beam into space.

FWIW.

So if that thing is something to do with her research it would make sense for her to have it when Malekith and Thor visit Midgard, maybe it gave some kind of warning which is why she is outside and potentially in danger.....

Fingers crossed for some more set pics then!

Makes sense!

princehals had reported that it was just going to be stunt people and explosions and such through Sunday. So while it's not as exciting as seeing the actual actors, it still could provide interesting information on what is happening.

Question for London-area members (or London-area guests if you want to weigh in--great opportunity to join! )

In September, marvel_freshman posted a notice of filming with a helicopter along the Thames:

http://forums.superherohype.com/show...&postcount=599

My question is: where is this area in relation to Greenwich University? I know waffles reported walking along the Thames before getting all those great photos, and the letter talks about the Old Naval College at Greenwich. I'm wondering if the helicopter footage would lead to any of the scenes shot at Greenwich University. Not knowing the geography, I have no idea whether that would make sense.

Thanks!

I am not saying I don't love the skit, but it certainly doesn't seem to work with any kind of continuity that I can think of.

I think we shouldn't take the shawarma scene too serious, it's only a nice joke at the end.

That's a really good parody of Nighthawks, too. Here's the original for comparison: http://www.artic.edu/aic/collections/artwork/111628 (I especially like that the original name of the restaurant is "Phillie's")

Yeah, I'd be willing to bet it's some sort of wormhole warning system, or maybe even Foster and/or Selvig's research has gone so far as to allow them to create/manipulate the wormholes now themselves....?

Plot-wise, I'd guess that her Gizmospaztransmogrification Device went off when Thor made his way to London, and now, in this scene, it's gone off again because Malekith just showed up uninvited.

They were filming on the south bank which is further up the river thames from Greenwich University and greenwich naval college. Its possible that the footage could be linked.

It seems like alot of the London filming is around the more old fashioned looking London areas like Leadenhall market.

Pretty sure that the helicopter footage (and some other footage shot elsewhere in London) were meant to be flying shots, and there was at least one report that the shots were supposed to show Mjolnir flying headlong through the streets of London. Which means that Thor somehow got *really* separated from the hammer at some point.

The reason I say this is because I was wondering about that most recent set shot at the university, that showed Malekith cornering Jane and Selvig; then Thor steps in and manhandles him and shoves him back. Question: can anyone see Mjolnir on Thor's belt in those scenes....? Because I can't understand why he wouldn't have just laid the hammer down on the Dark Elf king instead of resorting to rasslin'....?

I cant really tell but I would say he may be being smart here and pushing him away so they can fight without endangering Jane and Erik so much.

and Welcome Ezio!
