Tom Hiddleston On THOR: THE DARK WORLD Director Alan Taylor & THE AVENGERS Success
Commenting on whether we'll see a third solo Thor movie, English actor Tom Hiddleston has also praised The Dark World director Alan Taylor, and his relationship with Kenneth Branagh. Check it out!
When asked about Marvel's The Avengers box office success, Loki actor Tom Hiddleston recently told the Huffington Post, “You never count your chickens. When you're inside it, you're just thinking, 'I hope I haven't screwed this up.' You don't want to be the weakest link in the chain.”
On his third forthcoming outing as the God of Mischief in Thor: The Dark World, Hiddleston dotted on what director Alan Taylor brings to the table following the original flick's helmer Kenneth Branagh. “Ken established the tone, so we’ve taken the baton and kept running. Alan Taylor is fantastic, one of the men responsible for 'Game of Thrones' which is so of that world, a very grounded, gritty, earthy world where warriors and swords and monsters and magic all meet, so his experience of that has given him a fantastic take on the whole world of Thor.” He continued, “I went to a summer screening of a Marvel short film. Ken came and so did Alan, it was very clear how much mutual respect between them and I thought, ‘ok, it’s going to be fine.’”
Although we likely won't see a third Thor movie, at least until 2016, that didn't stop the Huffington Post from asking Hiddleston about the possibility, to which he replied, “These kind of films, not to get too heavy about it, all depend on the financial success of the one before, so we'll have to see.”
Marvel Studios’ “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
