“You know, we are killing Asgardians in this movie,” says director Alan Taylor inside. “It turns out immortality isn’t all that it was cracked up to be.”
Explains producer Craig Kyle, “Asgard at the beginning of the first film was at a time of peace. Now our guys have been fighting for over a year, constantly. It’s a time of war.
“When the Bifrost was broken at the end of the first film, Odin had to conjure a lot of dark energy and go through a lot of personal sacrifice to try and get his son back to Earth. And it was a one-shot deal. If Thor didn’t succeed, without the Tesseract he couldn’t have got back again. And in our film, finally the Bifrost has been rebuilt, but during that time, when the cops were largely cut off from the rest of the universe, you had miscreants that came in from outside the Nine Realms, pillaging and destroying and causing havoc. So that’s what our guys have been doing now – trying to put all these fires out across the Nine Realms.”
For those who don’t remember why this movie is important try to recall that Idris Elba will be playing Heimdall which pissed off racists in the first movie and will do the same in this one, also recall he’s confirmed Heimdall will have an expanded role in this movie, oh! and also Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will play the villain Malekith of the dark elves.
Thor: The Dark World hits cinemas in the UK on October 30 and in the US on November 8. The new issue of Empire, with much much more on the film, hits newsstands next Thursday.
