Thor fans got a glimpse of what is in store for the upcoming film on Saturday, as Mary Street was closed for construction of the set.

Security was tight, with a black screen covering most of the work for the third instalment in the franchise Thor: Ragnarok, but that didn’t stop some fans from venturing into the city to have a look.

While there was no chance of seeing any of the film’s stars on Saturday, there will be on Monday when the hammer-weilding God himself arrives in Brisbane from his base on the Gold Coast.

“I might skip out on school just to come check all of the actors at work and hopefully get a glimpse of good old Thor,” fan Ayden Dawson said.

A letter sent out from Asgard Productions said parts of Mary Street, Albert Street and Margaret Street would be affected by filming of day sequences for Creature Report, the working title for the Marvel film. This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.
