Talking to SlashFilm, Chris Hemsworth (doing promotional rounds for The Avengers) spoke about the style of Thor 2, which is being directed by movie newcomer Alan Taylor and how the sequel is ‘viking-influenced’. Check out his comments below:
“I have read a script and we start shooting in August. I met with Alan Taylor a couple of months ago and Natalie Portman and I and Alan and a couple of Marvel guys and it was hugely exciting. Ken [Branagh] did such a wonderful job and, with scheduling or what have you, he didn’t end up doing this one, but I’m a big fan of the GAME OF THRONES series, which is Alan’s latest work, and I think that is what’s exciting about the second one: making it sort of more tangible and having a more organic feel to Asgard and that world.”
“I think the science fiction element to THOR… the danger is it falls a little bit into the world of it’s “tough to throw a light to.” I think of big waterfalls and mountains and a Viking influence, where the Norse mythology kind of grew from. Having that in Asgard is going to make it all the more special and that’s what Alan wants to bring to it. I think that would be the new aspect to this one.”
Well I know that certainly sounds intriguing, as I have the same Asgardian vision! Are you excited for Thor 2? Sound off in the comments below!
