Tom Hiddleston Talks Branagh/Taylor and Potential Thor 3

26 Nov

Hi peeps of the internet, more news has been put on the internet for me to talk about, so I’m gonna talk about it. Ah yes more news on Thor: The Dark World from our favourite man Tom Hiddleston. and as per usual superherohype provides the following article:

“Tom Hiddleston has been one of the most vocal members of the Thor cast when talking about the upcoming sequel, Thor: The Dark World. The actor has spoken about most topics presented to him and today, in an interview with Huffington Post, he talked about the difference between Kenneth Branagh (director of Thor) and Alan Taylor (director of the sequel Thor: The Dark World).

“Ken established the tone, so we’ve taken the baton and kept running. Alan Taylor is fantastic, one of the men responsible for ‘Game of Thrones’ which is so of that world, a very grounded, gritty, earthy world where warriors and swords and monsters and magic all meet, so his experience of that has given him a fantastic take on the whole world of Thor.
He was refashioning those archetypes in space. We talked about King Lear and that kind of dynastic drama, about succession, with somebody at the top of the tree, and somebody else due to succeed the throne, there’s always a wrestling if it’s father and son… it’s all very dynastic.”
So was he anxious about having a newcomer step onto the sequel instead of Branagh? “I went to a summer screening of a Marvel short film. Ken came and so did Alan, it was very clear how much mutual respect between them and I thought, ‘ok, it’s going to be fine.’”
Filming on Thor: The Dark World has only a few weeks remaining before it wraps and Hiddleston won’t say if they’re already talking about Thor 3.
“These kind of films, not to get too heavy about it, all depend on the financial success of the one before, so we’ll have to see.” 

In Thor: The Dark World, 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. It’s slated for a November 8, 2013 release.”

It’s good to know that Alan Taylor has been having a good effect on the progress of the second Thor film and it’s also good to know that Kenneth and Alan are cool with each other with the transition of one director to another on the same film series. I’m also interested to hear what Tom had to say on the next instalment in the Thor series, I thought that next one would be automatic, but he does bring up a good point about the financial side of these big budget films; if a film doesn’t make enough money then it doesn’t really warrant a sequel. So let’s hope that Thor: The Dark World is a badass film that makes loads of cash so we can afford to see more of these characters in another adventure.
