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. 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 Kevin Feige (Marvel’s President of Production), he talked about how funny the sequel is, deleted scenes and how many will be on the Blu-ray, his reaction to the latest draft of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, if they’ve started filming the next Marvel one-shot, when his contract ends, when we can expect an Ant-Man casting announcement, if we’re any closer to finding out which Marvel movies are coming in 2016 and 2017, and a lot more. Hit the jump to watch.
