Zap2It caught up with Chris Hemsworth at the premiere for Marvel's The Avengers and chatted a little bit with the Aussie actor about Thor's next solo movie. Hemsworth said he hasn't read the script yet, but praised Avengers director Joss Whedon for the handling of the Jane Foster Thor story. "The big challenge was, we left 'Thor' with that hope of Jane Foster on Earth and Thor in another realm kind of somehow getting together. You know, I think the satisfying thing would be to see that happen. Joss did a great job of fostering that and putting her out of the picture for the moment," he said. According to Hemsworth the maturity that Thor gained in his first movie outing will really be put to the test with him continuing, "I think he would like, now, to be put in the position to take over the throne and be worthy of that position. We'll see." Thor could be making the trip across different realms this go around as well. Hemsworth said he is looking forward to traveling to different worlds, but Earth will still be a focal point in the film. "I always found the lighter stuff with Thor to be more interesting, because of all the other realms that he was involved in and the universe and that's what I look forward to. Traveling across different worlds. I certainly think Earth is his connection. It's never said in the film, but in the comics and in the early history of it all, I think Thor's mother is vaguely human. There is some sort of connection there," Hemsworth Explained.

We have also had news that Loki will be featured in the sequel as well but not as the main villain. A lot of people are speculating on just who will be featured along side Loki in the next film. One of the choices is Beta Ray Bill who ironically was one of he first stories Hemsworth read when he was researching Thor. While there has been no rumor or news that Beta Ray Bill will be featured the actor said this of the character, "I thought, 'What is this half horse-looking character?' By the end I said 'I get this and I like it.' My first instinct was that I was a bit unsure. He's the only one who can pick up the hammer. He's a worthy from another planet. But he looks like a horse."

You can check out Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Marvel's The Avengers along side Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård , and Samuel L. Jackson on May 4th 2012.

HelaGood - 4/13/2012, 1:05 PM
HELA or Surtur for Thor 2!

I would love to see Beta Ray Bill in Thor 2? Then again, I don't know the story of Thor as well as most other Marvel characters. Is it to early to introduce him to the movie series?
MassExecutions - 4/13/2012, 1:08 PM
Save Beta Ray for Thor 3 or Avengers 2 (they'll need his help to defeat Thanos, who is also threatening his race).

For Thor 2 we need Enchantress, Executioner, Baldar, and MAYBE Ulik. Also, NO EARTH. All in other realms. Build up the Thor/Sif relationship so when he gets to see Jane again in Thor 3 there's real conflict.
OdinsBeard - 4/13/2012, 1:09 PM
do beta ray bill and surtur. work in surtur's back story with odin and now thor has to face the challenges of his father.

and yeah jane foster and all that love stuff too ;)
forthesakeofnow - 4/13/2012, 1:10 PM
are people going to take a horse dressed as thor called "beta ray bill" seriously?
luffycapri - 4/13/2012, 1:11 PM
i really hope hes in it
HumanTorch83 - 4/13/2012, 1:11 PM
Beta Ray bill should be in Thor 3.
Thor 2, Enchantress, Executioner,
Denn1s - 4/13/2012, 1:11 PM
''i get this and i like it''. ANOTHER!

"I need a horse!!!"

If BETA RAY BILL is in THOR 2, I hope his look his heavily inspired by his look in the STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL series.


MovieMaster - 4/13/2012, 1:12 PM
Surtur for Thor 3. Otherwise if he's used in Thor 2, what villain would they use in Thor 3?
DaenerysTargaryen - 4/13/2012, 1:13 PM
Sarah Jessica Parker for Beta Ray Bill!
GreenHalJordan - 4/13/2012, 1:13 PM
Chris is amazing as Thor, born to play the role. However, I would like to see the fights increase from great-awesome-epicness! Bring on Enchantress and/or Bta Ray Bill!

GreyChaos13Zero - 4/13/2012, 1:16 PM
Thor 2 and Beta Ray Bill!



let me see?)

no one thinks it would seem insane in thor 2?
forthesakeofnow - 4/13/2012, 1:20 PM
@nomis

there is a sliding scale of how crazy it can get, to me frost giants are fine in terms of suspending my disbelief.

but an alien horse who dresses as the main character?

AND has a cheesy comic book, space western sounding name?
HelaGood - 4/13/2012, 1:22 PM
yeah i think the enchantress is the obvious, but im hoping they dont go for the obvious.
Geeksiah - 4/13/2012, 1:22 PM
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS as the ENCHANTRESS!
HelaGood - 4/13/2012, 1:23 PM
and i REALLY hope they dont include much of jane foster...

the weakest parts of Thor were with Jane and her posse.

show us the other realms!!! make the warriors three and sif bigger and badder! and show us something dark like Hel with Surtur and Hela!
ralfinader - 4/13/2012, 1:23 PM
@forthesakeofnow - Mister Ed said it is perfectly sane.
Wildaniel - 4/13/2012, 1:23 PM
Gusto

LOL, you took to long. And TheBlackWidow mention it before me also.
Coloso - 4/13/2012, 1:24 PM
@TheBlackWidow Lolz, you had me rolling on the floor with laughter :D

I can see it now...
HelaGood - 4/13/2012, 1:24 PM
but if they MUST include Amora... cast Evangeline Lilly

thunderforce - 4/13/2012, 1:25 PM
Thor's mother is not vaguely human she is the Elder Goddess of the Earth . I think Thor needs to go read some more comics .
HelaGood - 4/13/2012, 1:26 PM
i think Blastoise should go troll somewhere else...
HelaGood - 4/13/2012, 1:26 PM
i confirm thunderforce's comment
masterhater - 4/13/2012, 1:28 PM
I HATE BETA RAY BILL!!

There is not a single comicbook persona that is more cheesy, lame and un-needed as that dumb-a** character. Way to tarnish Thor.
masterhater - 4/13/2012, 1:30 PM
I second the Enchantress! She not only is gorgeous and cool looking but she has some crazy power too! The would be a good match.
forthesakeofnow - 4/13/2012, 1:30 PM
@grif

its funny, i would have sworn that this would have been something u would have complained about, saying it was stupid
Fogs - 4/13/2012, 1:31 PM
Holy shit, did you see Josh's reaction after seeing Avengers on twitter?

"My God. That was...well, [frick]ing amazing to put it bluntly. #Avengers

Gotta find a taxi. Gimme a few minutes and I'll Tweet some proper reactions. Joss Whedon has crafted a masterpiece!!! #Avengers

The footage we've seen doesn't do it justice. The #Avengers is a bigger movie than any of us could have EVER imagined.

It's funny (not in a stupid way, in an actual laugh out loud way) throughout and deadly serious too. Some truly shocking moments. #Avengers

There's not a weak performance. Hiddleston is terrifying and everyone else is magnificent. You won't believe how good The #Avengers is!

I'm not sure what else I can say. It's the greatest comic book movie EVER made. Whedon just became one of the most in-demand directors in> >Hollywood, that's for damn sure. A breathtaking spectacle. Can't wait to see it again!!! #Avengers

I'm not gonna lie. I had tears in my eyes at some points. It's THAT good (and I'm not just saying this from a fans perspective). #Avengers

Sorry guys, but I won't be answering any spoiler related questions (pretty sure that's why I signed an embargo I reckon). Review on 20th.

One or two minor gripes, but that's just a fanboy thing. Will mention it in my review. Oh, and the after-credits scene? Epic. #Avengers"


In other words...

[frick]IN EPIC!

Beta ray bill with a different name and not dressed up as Thor maybe... It wont work in a live action film :(
MassExecutions - 4/13/2012, 1:33 PM
GRIF KNOWS!

And hey, Thor's mother DOES have a connection to EARTH. He was almost right. His mother is the reason he has more of an affinity for Midgard than the other gods.
forthesakeofnow - 4/13/2012, 1:39 PM
@Ironman53

wont say anything? lol

i dont think people realise that saying "im not going to review this because of the embargo" and then saying they really like it spouting hyperbole and saying theres things they dont like, is actually reviewing the film. rubbish reviewing but reviewing none the less
MassExecutions - 4/13/2012, 1:45 PM
If they introduce Beta Ray Bill they should show that the krobinite ladies find him just as impressive as the earth ladies find Thor. That would freaking crack me up.
BmanHall - 4/13/2012, 1:45 PM
Elisha Cuthbert for Enchantress.

HelaGood - 4/13/2012, 1:47 PM
elisha cuthbert cant act her way out of that bikini... which is a shame... cuz she should... right now...!!!
