Marvel has released two more movie posters for Thor: The Dark World. One features Christopher Eccleston unmasking himself as Malekith the Accursed. The other includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. In a recent interview with Static Multimedia, Portman talked about the film and reprising her role. Here's what she said.
On why Marvel movies do well:
"I think one of the reasons the Marvel movies do so well is that they keep the comedy amid the action and the drama that is part of these films as well and they keep it entertaining. It’s more like life: even in the worst situations, always making jokes to lighten things up."
On what she loves about sci-fi/fantasy:
"I really love getting to go into these places that I would just never be able to come up with on my own, and it’s not how my brain works. So just to enter these worlds is so magical and it brings you back to being a kid where you could just have a complete fantastical world."
On the role Jane Foster will play in the sequel:
"Yes, she’s really helping. But not in like a physical superhero way, but her scientific understanding kind of helps understand what’s going on with the correspondence of different worlds with each other."
On working with Anthony Hopkins:
"It was crazy. I was very intimidated, but luckily he’s one of the kindest people I have ever met. So he made me feel really at ease and he’s just, man, he’s the best. You just sit there and try to remind yourself to ask because he’s just like, you are jaw dropped on the floor watching him."
On smacking Tom Hiddleston in the face:
"It was actually a punch. We did a few that were fake, but they could tell because I am just bad at that. (laughs) So there were a few real ones because they were like, ‘you are just a little girl, you really can’t hurt him’. So I don’t know, he acted like he could handle it, but I think I actually hurt him."
On whether she thinks she'll be in Avengers: Age of Ultron:
"I don’t think I would fit in very well. They are all superheroes. (laughs)... They haven’t asked me, so we will see."The movie is set to be released on November 8th!
Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World" continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
