Hey Towelites!! It’s time once again to round up all the latest news and rumors from Marvel Studios Phase 2!
While Iron Man 3 stays hush hush, news is rolling in from Thor 2 like Asgardian thunder!! First up we have some set photos of Thor’s main squeeze Jane Foster, as Natalie Portman shows face on the set. Also our favorite Dr Erik Selvig, played by Stellan Skarsgard, is back as well on the London set!
Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth had this to say to MTV News in regards to the status of the film:
“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]. 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, and with Loki, we get down to the major bones of our conflict with everything that’s come from “Thor” to “Avengers” to now.”
By Odin’s Beard! Anthony Hopkins has nothing but praise about the filming of Thor 2:
