Alan Taylor Not Too Fond Of the Mid-Credits Scene For THOR: THE DARK WORLD
Minor Spoiler alert! Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor awkwardly explains his gripes with the Marvel sequel's mid-credits scene, while Kevin Feige clarifies who directed it. Check it out!
Bleeding Cool has posted segments of interviews with Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor and producer Kevin Feige about the sequel's mid-credits teaser. As the scene involves a "blonde" Benicio Del Toro as The Collector from next summer's space epic Guardians of the Galaxy, Taylor was asked if he directed it. "I absolutely did not. I am very happy to not take responsibility," he answered. Can we assume it was James Gunn? "I wouldn’t blame it on James Gunn... Er… I wouldn’t attribute it to James Gunn… it’s clearly his sets and his characters…" When asked if he's not comfortable with the stinger, Alan Taylor reiterated, "I am very happy not to take responsibility for that…" When asked about the different tone, Alan Taylor elaborated, "It’s a different tone. I would have shot it differently. But I think it’s cool that it reaches out and touches that other universe. That universe is coming. The Guardians universe is really cool and wacky… but that sequence in the credits, I would say, is the only part of the movie where I’m happy to give the credit away…" Kevin Feige, on the other hand, confirmed that the tag was filmed "relatively recently" by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn and "within the last three or four weeks." What do you think?
Marvel’s “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. It opens in theaters November 8, 2013.
