Over the last couple of months we've seen a ton of very cool set photos from Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, and from what I've seen it looks like director Alan Taylor's vision of the film is coming together nicely. In a recent interview with MTV Chris Hemsworth talked about a few things you might find interesting. He discusses Thor's relationships with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in the sequel saying,
For Thor and Jane, there are some unanswered questions now, since obviously he didn't stop in and catch up with her in Avengers. Thor might have some explaining to do in this one. And with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that's come from Thor to Avengers to now.
He goes on to discuss how much longer they will be shooting, and comments on Taylor making the film a lot bigger and bringing a Game of Thrones vibe to the world.
We have six weeks to go to shoot. This is the trickiest bit, because you can go, "Oh, yeah, we're past the halfway mark!" which isn't a good idea, because you're not finished yet. You sort of get that second wind about now or you hope to and push on through. But it's been great. The look of the film is a lot bigger than what we did even previously. The first one worked and people loved it, but this is with a different director and just has a totally different feel. There's a definite Game of Thrones vibe thanks to [director] Alan [Taylor].
For those of you interested in what Hemsworth thinks of the whole Star Wars Disney thing he says,
Oh man, I love those films. That's the sort of bread and butter of my film experience as a kid. I would love to work on something like that. I also loved Lord of the Rings. I would have loved to have done something in that world.
I can't wait to start seeing some official images, posters and trailers for Thor 2! I'm excited to see what the final product ends up looking like. I imagine it will be even better that what we think we're going to get.
