Screenwriter Christopher Yost Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Screenwriter Christopher Yost Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD

While he's careful not to give to much away about the highly anticipated Marvel Studios sequel, Christopher Yost (perhaps best known for his work on comic books such as Scarlet Spider and Avenging Spider-Man) talks here about his experiences on the set of Thor: The Dark World so far.


Talking to Newsarama about taking over writing duties on Avenging Spider-Man (a title which features the controversial new status quo of having Doctor Octopus as Spider-Man), Christopher Yost was asked by the site what it has been like to make the transition from comic book writing to penning the screenplay for Thor: The Dark World. "I've been working on Thor since February, I think, and its the biggest project I've ever worked on. The transition has been fine, but the practical "Let's actually go out and shoot this thing" aspect of it has been huge. [Laughs.]" As for his experience on set so far, Yost was careful not to give anything away about the plot of the movie. He did however have this to say about what it has been like to be in London and still write for Marvel Comics. "It's been amazing, I'll leave it at that. As far as juggling comics at the same time, I've done my best to keep my head above water — Tom Brennan and Ellie Pyle deserve all the credit for holding it all together while I've been in a nine month long "crunch time."




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.
