Director Alan Taylor, tells Empire that he was surprised he landed the gig since he isn't a "fantasy guy," nor was he even a fan of Peter Jackson's wildly popular Lord of the Rings trilogy. “When they first came to me I thought it was a mistake! (Taylor laughs) But, yeah, they clearly saw something they liked in Game Of Thrones. And from my end it’s been hugely useful to have that experience, in terms of imagery and tone. That was my first foray into greenscreen work and CGI and stuff. Nothing compared to this, but at least it was a bit of a warm-up.”
While the first film that Kenneth Branagh ("Jack Ryan") was successful at the box office and with critics, Taylor believes there is room for improvement. Once such aspect, the look of Asgard, “When I had that first meeting with Marvel I said, ‘I liked the first one, but for me the world would look different, it would feel different,’” Taylor reveals. “I mean, I really respect what they did. It was a conscious choice to say, ‘These are not ancient gods, this is an alien race that’s been mistaken for ancient gods.’ Which is an intriguing way to do it, and it’s supported by Marvel mythology. But it had the effect of making everything new and shiny, and that was what bugged me the most. So I came in thinking, ‘Okay, let’s look at the ancient and see what happens.”
The article describes a Thor: The Dark World scene in which Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and her bruised and battered Asgardian lover (Chris Hemsworth) return to Earth, after being in Thor's mystical world.
“You’ve been to Asgard!” observes Stellan Skarsgård’s Dr. Selvig, greeting them in only shirt and underpants (“I’ve been overmedicating to try to heal the damage done in my brain by Loki in The Avengers,” Skarsgård explains). Then he and Thor embrace. Skarsgård hold the hug. His crotch starts jiggling, bumping his nethers against Odinson’s own. The camera tilts down to his barely covered backside.
The article also vaguely describes the plot of the film, with some interesting quotes from Hemsworth and Taylor.
Asgard’s realms have sunk into a state of war against brutal invaders when long-forgotten enemies surface: the Dark Elves, commanded by Christopher Eccleston’s silver-haired Malekith. “Our stories are quite separate, parallel to each other while we do our own thing,” Hemsworth says of his deadly new nemesis. “And then we collide at the end.” The Asgardians, from Odin down, have, Taylor says “gotten scuffed up a little bit”.
