Chris Hemsworth Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD, ROBOPOCALYPSE And More
Hemsworth discusses his upcoming Marvel sequel, commenting on Thor's relationships with Jane Foster and Loki in the film and when filming wraps. He also confirms his involvement with Steven Spielberg's Robopocalypse, and expresses interest in appearing in a Star Wars film.
Speaking to MTV News, actor Chris Hemsworth discusses some of his upcoming projects. He offers an update on Marvel Studios' Thor: The Dark World, which will finish production in a few weeks, and how the relationships between Thor, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) have progressed. He also praises director Alan Taylor, who gives off a Game Of Thrones vibe in the highly anticipated sequel.
"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 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," says Hemsworth. "And with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that's come from "Thor" to "Avengers" to now."
Additionally, Hemsworth confirms that he will star in Steven Spielberg's upcoming sci-fi film Robopocalypse, which begins production early next year. "No one does sci-fi better than him [Spielberg]. It was a no-brainer. And then I read the script and was even more excited if that's possible." He's also asked about the planned Snow White & The Huntsman follow-up. Yesterday, we heard that Kristen Stewart will return for a sequel, but director Rupert Sanders won't. Will Hemsworth return as well? "Honestly, I've heard the same things you've heard. I think if there's an appetite for the sequel, they'll get one going, but there's nothing official yet. I had a great time making the last one, so who knows?"
Finally, Hemsworth is asked if he would be interested in appearing in a Star Wars movie, as Disney have announced plans to produce another trilogy (with Episode VII eying a 2015 release). Of course, Hemsworth would love to do something in the franchise. "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."
