THOR: THE DARK WORLD In Search of "Men Of Fire"

UPDATED| Possibly hinting at the fire demon, Surtur's inclusion in the sequel, a reported casting call for Marvel's Thor: The Dark World reveals extras that're skilled with fire are needed!



Marvel and director Alan Taylor are currently in London prepping the official commencement of filming for the anticipated sequel, Thor: The Dark World. And although primary cast additions have yet to unveil, casting calls for background roles apparently have. According to a Tumblr user, a casting call for the anticipated sequel has revealed producers are in need of extras that're particularly experts with fire. The Tumblr user writes:

“‘Men of Fire

For the a new Marvel Super Hero feature film we are looking for men who are skilled in playing with fire to pretend to be warriors.

The Requirements:
You must be highly skilled with playing with fire example skills include - Spinning, Fire Sticks, Fire Breathing, Fire eating etc’”
.

UPDATE: The User has offered verbatim info, which an additional source (Universal Extras) confirms. How do you think fire dancing, eating & breathing relates to Thor's next outing? It's likely to involve earthbound scenes, but more interestingly, it could be one of the other "dark worlds" the Asgardians are bound to pay a visit. Perhaps, the casting call alludes to the sequel exploring Muspelheim, the realm of eternal fire, and the home of the Fire Demons and their ruler Surtur. That could be in addition to the strongly-believed Dark Elves. What do you think?

Exploring Thor's relationship with the Asgardian all-father Odin, as well earthbound companion Jane Foster, “Thor: The Dark World” follows the God of Thunder to The Nine Realms beyond Asgard and earth. And as his evil half-brother, Loki, returns for Asgardian justice, a new threat rises. Also rejoining Thor are his fellow Asgardians, Lady Sif, gatekeeper Heimdall and Warriors Three, as they encounter mythical Norse creatures among evildoers.

“Thor: The Dark World” stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Mads Mikkelsen, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, with Stellan Skarsgard and Ray Stevenson. And Alan Taylor (“Game of Thrones”) takes over directorial duties from Kenneth Branagh, who helmed the first “Thor” film. With a screenplay by Robert Rodat,“Thor: The Dark World” is set for release on November 8, 2013.
