After months of waiting, we finally got to sit down and have a chat with the cast of Marvel’s next theatrical release, Thor. The film will be directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Australian native Chris Hemsworth as the title character. He’s a relative newcomer who’ll be supported by several veteran actors like Anthony Hopkins who plays his father Odin. At the official Comic-Con press junket a lot of the main talent from the film were in attendance including Branagh, Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Clark Gregg, and even Marvel Chief Kevin Feige got in on the action. You can listen to the interviews below…
Hemsworth, Hiddleston, and Gregg all did their round table interviews alone while Portman was paired with Dennings and Branagh with Feige. They were asked a variety of questions including how it feels to be a part of Marvel’s ambitious Avengers project. Hemsworth spoke about what he does and doesn’t know about the team-up film and how he feels working opposite such a huge ensemble cast.
Director Branagh elaborated on his vision of Thor and how he tackled the story the same way he would a Shakespearean play. And Dennings was on hand to clue us in on exactly who it is she plays in the movie. Her character Darcy isn’t in the comics and we’ve been in the dark as to what it is she really does.
