During the filming of The Dark World, Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige, promised that we would see more of the Nine Realms in the sequel. Needless to say, we were excited to finally see all of the diverse worlds connected to Yggdrasil, the world tree. While he wasn’t lying, we really only get to see Vanaheim, Svartalfheim, Jotunheim, and the kingdom of Asgard up close. However, during the film’s climax, as the realms begin to converge, we do get a quick glimpse of what looks like Muspelheim, the home of the fire demons.
In the comics, Muspelheim is where the lord of the fire demons, Surtur, lives. This is the demon who attempts to bring upon Ragnarök, the Norse version of the apocalypse. We’re hoping this quick look at the fires of Muspelheim is a precursor to the appearance of Surtur in a potential third Thor installment.
