Thor 2 director Alan Taylor reveals that Joss Whedon did just a little tinkering with the Thor: The Dark World script...

When you've got a film that needs a little bit of extra help, it's always handy to have the mighty Joss Whedon on the payroll somewhere. That certainly seems to have been the case with Thor: The Dark World, as director Alan Taylor has revealed in a new interview with SFX.

Taylor revealed in the new issue of the magazine that "Joss came in to save our lives a couple of times. We had a major scene that was not working on the page at all in London, and he basically got airlifted in like a SWAT team or something. He came down, rewrite the scene, and before he got back to this plane, I sort of grabbed him and said 'and this scene and this scene?'"

Whedon went on to rewrite two other scenes, and in Taylor's words, those moments turned out "much better and much lighter on their feet".

Not momentous rewrites then, but enough to help with the tuning and tinkering on the movie. We'll keep you posted as to where the one-man geek re-writing SWAT team that is Joss Whedon lands next.

Thor: The Dark World arrives in UK cinemas on October 30th.
