Chris Hemsworth Speaks On THOR: THE DARK WORLD Climatic Scene In Comic-Con Footage
Weighing in on the scene from the Comic-Con footage which closed with visuals of the God of thunder losing his hand at the hands of Loki, hit the jump and check out what star Chris Hemsworth offers!
We're just under two weeks away from a brand new theatrical trailer for Thor: The Dark World, but fans are still buzzing about the big closing scene in the Comic-Con footage shown last weekend. The moment in particular shows Tom Hiddleston's Loki unmercifully slicing off Thor's right hand. Due to prior engagements, Chris Hemsworth (and several other cast members) couldn't attend the Marvel panel, but Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with the hammer-slinging star and asked about Thor's severed hand. “Is that the footage they showed?” Hemsworth asked. “I haven’t seen it yet. I’m trying to get hold of it somehow. I wish I could have been there. I can’t say too much more about it. But I will tell you that’s not the worst thing that he has to worry about along the way.” When EW compared Thor to Game of Thrones' Jaime Lannister, who lost his hand in an April episode of the HBO series, “That’s a good point, wow, that never struck me. There’s a strange parallel there,” said Hemsworth. As for the God of Thunder possibly going on without his right hand, some speculate that it's an illusion brought on by the God of Mischief himself, but only time will tell. “Maybe I will have to learn to use the hammer with the left hand, you know? Or I was thinking of maybe just attaching it. I could ram it straight down into the stump. That would be very Game of Thrones in approach,” Chris Hemsworth added.
In related news: Thor: The Dark World co-writer Christopher Yost revealed to Marvel.com that the stone-like creature, who was taunted by Thor before being smashed to bits, in the Comic-Con footage is actually one of the Kronans. This is the alien race that claims to be from Saturn and are also Thor's first enemies in his Journey Into Mystery #83 origins story. What do you think?
