One of my biggest movie going surprises last summer was Thor. When I heard Marvel was moving forward with a Thor film I thought it would be awful and most likely bomb spectacularly. Well, I was way off. I ended up liking it quite a bit, and while it didn’t do Ironman numbers at the box office it definitely held its own. It came as no surprise when Marvel announced the sequel would be hitting theatres November 15, 2013.
We reported the other day that Saving Private Ryan writer Robert Rodat was brought in to do a rewrite on the script and there were also some recent tidbits coming from Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston. Now MTV brings us an interview, which you can view below, with Jamie Alexander who played Sif in the first film.
Here’s some of what Jamie had to say regarding Thor 2 director Alan Taylor:
“We just got Alan Taylor from ‘Game of Thrones’ to direct, so I’m very excited. I’m excited to see what he brings…['Game of Thrones'] is great. The style and the lighting and the tone of it, everything about it is so unlike anything you see on TV these days.
“He’s got a great history of directing comedic bits and action bits, and that’s something our movie definitely has.”
And on a possible cameo in this summer’s The Avengers:
“I can’t tell you [about The Avengers]… Sometimes you never know. It’ll be funny—they’ll call you and they’ll do a post-credits scene and you go, ‘Oh, so everything I said in interviews is completely wrong.’ So you never know!”
Chris Hemsworth will be returning as Thor and presumably Natalie Portman will return as Jane Foster, if she’s not still angry that is.
