With director Alan Taylor’s Thor: The Dark World opening around the world next week and in North America on November 8th, I was able to interview the cast and filmmakers in London this past weekend.  As most of you know, Chris Hemsworth returns as Thor, who reluctantly teams up with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) to fight off the villainous dark elf Malekith the Accursed (Christopher Eccleston).  The film also stars Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, and Anthony Hopkins.

During my interview with Hemsworth, he talked about how the sequel is very funny, how he gets to have some fun with Mjolnir in the film, if Joss Whedon has told him anything about The Avengers: Age of Ultron, if London is his second home since he’s filming so many movies there, his character in Michael Mann’s Cyber and what the movie is about.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed any of my Thor: The Dark World set visit coverage, here’s 50 things to know about the movie and interviews with TaylorHiddlestonAdewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and producer Craig Kyle.  You can also watch two brand new clips here, or click here for all our previous coverage.

  • How Thor: The Dark World is really funny.
  • Was the humor on the page or did they do a lot of it on set?
  • How he gets to have some fun with Mjolnir in the film.
  • Is London his second home since he’s filming so many movies here.
  • Has Joss Whedon told him anything about The Avengers sequel yet?
  • Talks about Michael Mann’s Cyber:

“It’s in the world of cyber-terrorism and it’s something I knew nothing about nor how vulnerable we are to those kinds of threats.  This film kicks off and there’s been an attack through some cyber criminals out there, and my character is a bit of a criminal himself and he’s furloughed out of prison because he knows the particular code that was used.  He then embarks on a joint task force with the American government and Chinese government to track down this guy.  Meanwhile, nuclear power plants are being shut down via certain hacks.It was fascinating and Michael Mann is one of the most detailed directors and he leaves no stone unturned in his prep.  So we visited a number of prisons together, hacking schools, and computer schools and what-have-you to try and fill the brain with that kind of world, which certainly I was not aware of previously.  We shot in L.A., Chicago, Hong Kong, Kuala Lampur, Jakarta.”

    Thank you for asking him about Cyber.

    Hey Steve,

    I really like your interviews.

    But the “I got to go now” in almost every interview you do, seems a little bit inappropriate to me. They want to sell this movie to the viewer and you help them by doing the interview. But to be honest, they help you too to gain more traffic on your side with their interviews. In the end you both profit from each other so pls dont use this phrase again.

      So what would you rather him do when he has to wrap? Would you prefer him to give the actor a stopwatch with the time he is able to talk to them for? These actors probably charge a bomb to do these interviews and any time over is probably in excess of that.

    • Alex Hajna

      Your criticism makes no sense.

  • Buckchoy

    Also stars Natalie Portman ……. she’s missing from your list!

    • Steve Weintraub

      you’re right. will fix now!

    • Steve Weintraub

      you’re right. will fix now!

  • MorganFleurDeLys

    How you gonna forget Natalie Portman in the cast?

  • Alex Hajna

    How come you censored the “fucking” this time, Steve? Please don’t tell me you got complaints from readers.

    • Steve Weintraub

      they always complain but they’re right. I swear too much and am working on trying to fix that.

      • PANTS

        “Too much” swearing, you say? Is there any such thing as “just enough” swearing? I honestly think the people who complain about the swear words would prefer it was cut out completely, rather than simply reduced. But they are the minority, and it really doesn’t bother the vast majority of us. So keep up the good work, Steve!
