Chris Hemsworth Talks THOR: THE DARK WORLD and ROBOPOCALYPSE; Says THOR 2 Has a “Totally Different Feel” Than the First Film

     November 20, 2012


Production is currently underway in London on Marvel’s sequel Thor: The Dark World, and we’ve been keeping tabs on the pic with plenty of set photos and videos.  We still don’t know much plot-wise about the follow-up, but Game of Thrones helmer Alan Taylor is behind the director’s chair this time around and Christopher Eccleston is onboard as the principal villain Malekith the Accursed.

Hemsworth recently took a break from shooting to talk a bit about how The Dark World differs from the first film and how Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster factors into the plot.  Moreover, he also offered his thoughts on Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi pic Robopocalypse, which he films next year.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

“We have six weeks to go to shoot. This is the trickiest bit, because you can go, ‘Oh, yeah, we’re past the halfway mark!’ which isn’t a good idea, because you’re not finished yet. You sort of get that second wind about now or you hope to and push on through. But it’s been great. The look of the film is a lot bigger than what we did even previously. The first one worked and people loved it, but this is with a different director and just has a totally different feel. There’s a definite Game of Thrones vibe thanks to [director] Alan [Taylor].”

“For Thor and Jane, there are some unanswered questions now, since obviously he didn’t stop in and catch up with her in Avengers. Thor might have some explaining to do in this one… There’s some fun to be had with that. And with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that’s come from Thor to Avengers to now.”

Finally, the actor offered a brief tease of Spielberg’s Robopocalypse:

“No one does sci-fi better than [Spielberg]. It was a no-brainer. And then I read the script and was even more excited if that’s possible.”
