Chris Hemsworth Wants A GAME OF THRONES Inspired Asgard In THOR 2
Chris Hemsworth once again shares his thoughts on the direction of Thor 2, revealing that he's hoping director Alan Taylor will bring some of the grittiness associated with Game of Thrones to the sequel. Tom Hiddleston also comments on Loki's role in the follow up.
Talking to MTV Splash Page, Chris Hemsworth had this to say about the direction he's hoping Alan Taylor will take the sequel. "['Game of Thrones'] had a real mythical element to it, but it was rooted in such an organic and tangible world. I think Asgard could really benefit from that sort of a grittier, aged feel to it and not so ethereal."
As for where the sequel will take Thor, Hemsworth is hoping to take the God of Thunder even further afield that Asgard and Earth. "The big thing about the comics for me was the origin story. Thor was interesting, but what I found more fascinating was the other worlds and realms that you can be taken off into." When asked about whether we'll see even more otherworldly locations, he added, "I think so. I haven't seen the script yet, but hopefully. There are so many other universes out there and realms in the comics that they explored. I think definitely we'll venture into them."
"I'd like to take him to his absolute rock bottom," adds Tom Hiddleston on Loki's role in the sequel. "I'd like to see him yield essentially to his darkest instincts an then having hit rock bottom, maybe come back up. The fascination for me about playing Loki is that in the history of the mythology in the comic books and Scandinavian myths, he's contantl dancing on this fault line of the dark side and redemption. I don't know when, byut it would be fun to see him see the light again and be recruited to the good side."
