Thor: The Dark World round-up
Just a couple of Thor 2 bits and bobs to talk about, that we've brought together in one place.
Let's kick off this round up of Thor 2 news with the confirmation that Thor: The Dark World is going to get an IMAX release. This isn't a massive surprise, but the film will be playing in IMAX 3D cinemas internationally from October 30th. The US release date remains November 8th.
Meanwhile, with regards the film itself, some details have emerged regarding the reshoots that have been planned for the movie. Director Alan Taylor has been chatting about them to Collider, and he's revealed that the new footage is designed to inject more of Tom Hiddleston's Loki into the movie. He said that "We're doing full scenes, scenes that were not in the movie before. We're adding scenes, creating scenes, writing scenes for the first time. We realized how well Loki was working in the movie, and we wanted to do more with him". Sounds like a fine plan.
Reshoots are fairly common on big movies, but that doesn't stop them attracting negative reporting. Taylor is wary of that, and he does argue that it's simply a case of trying to make the film better.
Anthony Hopkins meanwhile, who plays Odin in the Thor movies, has admitted that he took the role originally after Kenneth Branagh - who directed the first film - personally asked him to. "This is not really my world", he's admitted. "I've come to Marvel at a late stage in my life and I'm used to doing more conventional films. But it's interesting".
"All I was concerned about sometimes was to turn the dialogue that I had into something that was more human instead of too overwritten. Mock Shakespeare".
