Hemsworth: Production On 'Thor: The Dark World' Is "Past The Halfway Mark"

The actor gives fans information about the film's production and reveals that things might be different between The God of Thunder and Jane Foster this time around.

Actor Chris Hemsworth who played Thor in both the Thor film (2011) as well as in The Avengers (2012) recently spoke about production on the sequel to the first film, Thor: The Dark World, which is currently being filmed. The actor revealed that not only is production on the movie "past the halfway mark," but he also gave fans some insight into the tone and overall feel of the upcoming film.

"We have six weeks to go to shoot," said Hemsworth "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]."

That's not all, though. Hemsworth also gave fans some clues about the character development fans can expect to see. According to the actor, there might be some tense moments shared between Thor and actress Natalie Portman's character, Jane Foster.

"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....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."

It will be interesting to see not only how the tone of this film differs from the first movie, but also how much of The Avengers movie influences the story we will see in the sequel. For those of you that simply cannot wait to see Thor: The Dark World, you will have to wait for the film's release on November 8th, 2013. Are you looking forward to the film?
