Thor 2: Chris Hemsworth Discusses the New Asgard

In an interview with /Film, Chris Hemsworth talked about Thor 2 and director Alan Taylor‘s (Game of Thrones) vision of Asgard. He revealed that he has read the script and met with Taylor along with co-star Natalie Portman and that Asgard will have a new look and feel.

Here’s what he said:

I have read a script and we start shooting in August. I met with Alan Taylor a couple of months ago and Natalie Portman and I and Alan and a couple of Marvel guys and it was hugely exciting. Ken [Branagh] did such a wonderful job and, with scheduling or what have you, he didn’t end up doing this one, but I’m a big fan of the GAME OF THRONES series, which is Alan’s latest work, and I think that is what’s exciting about the second one: making it sort of more tangible and having a more organic feel to Asgard and that world. I think the science fiction element to THOR… the danger is it falls a little bit into the world of it’s “tough to throw a light to.” I think of big waterfalls and mountains and a Viking influence, where the Norse mythology kind of grew from. Having that in Asgard is going to make it all the more special and that’s what Alan wants to bring to it. I think that would be the new aspect to this one.

It’s very awesome to hear that the stars and director of the movie are excited about making the sequel. Your thoughts?
