Chris Hemsworth will be reprising his role as hammer-wielding hardman Thor, and he’s been thoroughly impressed with the way Whedon has managed to weave so many characters into a coherent story.
“I'm hugely impressed with how Joss Whedon has worked all these characters into the story,” says Hemsworth. “I was asking myself, 'How is it going to work?' But Joss is a genius in the way that he's written this. All the characters get their time, and it ends up being a very iconic collaboration. We've watched these characters grow individually on screen, and to see them come together is really exciting.”
“Thor has more of a personal investment. It's not just some bad guy that he's gotta take care of; for him, it's family. There's a sense of, 'I'll beat him up and teach him a lesson, not you guys.' It's the first time in ages since he's seen his brother, and it's amongst all this chaos.”
