Chris Hemsworth Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD
Offering more about Games of Thrones helmer Alan Taylor's direction for Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, returning star Chris Hemsworths reiterates how he grounded the sequel in reality.
This month's issue of Prestige Hong Kong magazine features Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth on its cover, and an exclusive photoshoot (pictured below) and interview on the inside. During the Q&A, Hemsworth offered up more praise for Thor: The Dark World director, Alan Taylor, and his ultimate approach to the anticipated Marvel sequel. Declaring working with him “awesome” first and foremost, the actor adds:
“Yeah, I love the way he adds an incredibly organic element to the fantastical world of Thrones, and I think that’s what Thor could benefit from. It’s grounded in reality, no matter how mythical or science-fiction-like it becomes. There’s a truth to it all. Certainly, working with him now, you can see he doesn’t want Thor or the Asgardians to seem like some distant race or god-like. He still wants them to be relatable.”
Meanwhile, Hemsworth was recently spotted in West London jogging alongside wife Elsa Pataky, with their newborn daughter India Rose. Filming for Thor: The Dark World will pick up Monday at Butlers Wharf. The scene that'll be filmed will form part of a visual effects sequence running through streets of London. And a filming notice sign adds that shooting will involve the use of a motorbike driving on the pavement.
Exploring Thor's relationship with the Asgardian all-father Odin, as well earthbound companion Jane Foster, “Thor: The Dark World” follows the God of Thunder to The Nine Realms beyond Asgard and earth. And as his evil half-brother, Loki, returns for Asgardian justice, a new threat rises. Also rejoining Thor are his fellow Asgardians, Lady Sif, gatekeeper Heimdall and Warriors Three, as they encounter mythical Norse creatures among evildoers.
“Thor: The Dark World” stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Stellan Skarsgard, Ray Stevenson, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Rene Russo, with Alice Krige & Kat Dennings. And Alan Taylor (“Game of Thrones”) takes over directorial duties from Kenneth Branagh, who helmed the first “Thor” film. From a screenplay by Don Payne and Robert Rodat, “Thor: The Dark World” is set for release on November 8, 2013.
