MTV grabbed Chris Hamsworth and managed to get some of his thoughts on Thor: The Dark World and Robopocalypse.
So how are things progressing on Thor 2?
MTV: How is “Thor” going this time around?
Hemsworth: We have six weeks to go to shoot. This is the trickiest bit, because you can go, “Oh, yeah, we’re past the halfway mark!” which isn’t a good idea, because you’re not finished yet. You sort of get that second wind about now or you hope to and push on through. But it’s been great. The look of the film is a lot bigger than what we did even previously. The first one worked and people loved it, but this is with a different director and just has a totally different feel. There’s a definite “Game of Thrones” vibe thanks to [director] Alan [Taylor].
MTV: Have the relationships between Thor and Jane and Loki progressed significantly?
Hemsworth: Definitely. For Thor and Jane, there are some unanswered questions now, since obviously he didn’t stop in and catch up with her in “Avengers.” Thor might have some explaining to do in this one.
MTV: I hadn’t thought of that. Is Jane bitter that her boyfriend didn’t bother to say hi during all that craziness?
Hemsworth: [Laughs.] I know, right? Where the hell have you been? There’s some fun to be had with that. And with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that’s come from “Thor” to “Avengers” to now.
Next up is Robopocalypse:
MTV: Your next project is “Robopocalypse” with Steven Spielberg. I’d imagine that’s hugely exciting for you.
Hemsworth: Yeah! No one does sci-fi better than him. It was a no-brainer. And then I read the script and was even more excited if that’s possible.
Thor: The Dark World hits theatres November 8, 2013 and Robopocalypse will be in cinemas April 25, 2014.
