Chris Hemsworth Talks Brotherly Love For Loki And More On The Set Of Thor: The Dark World
In the comic books, Thor and Loki have these ups and downs where they’ll be mortal enemies and then best friends. Can you talk about if you guys are on an aligning path in the sequel, and getting together?
I can’t say too much, but I think in the comic books you kind of roll your eyes sometimes at the amount of times they’re back to being best friends. So we wanted to keep in mind, Loki did just try to kill you for the seventh time, and Earth, and the big war, and what have you.
So not to put words in your mouth, but you guys are getting along, but you’re not like as close as in the comics.
Um...I don’t know. I think maybe we have a common need or something. You know the scene in Avengers when Thor says, “Careful how you speak.” He may be crazy but he’s my brother. He’s a screw up, but he is my brother. I don’t think they’re going back to being best friends, but I think Thor’s at a loss about how they got to this point, ‘cause for him I think all this stuff came out of nowhere.
I think that then in this film he certainly can acknowledge now, with a maturity, that, okay, he should have been more aware of Loki over the years, and where he was positioned and all of this, and why maybe that led him down a certain path. So I think there’s a sort of an empathetic view for Loki that no one else can have because they’re not bound by blood.
Avengers 2 is coming. How does this set the stage for what’s coming? Do they all still build toward another bigger picture?
I think they’re all link up in some way, but I think Marvel is pretty adamant about them being their own stories. I was sort of wondering, “Are we going to start doing cameos in everyone’s film?” but I guess that would take away from the impact of when we do finally come together. So I think these stories, they kind of segue off into their own world, and each of the Avengers are conveniently not around at the time [laughs].
And that’s the thing. You watch Iron Man now or the trailer and you go “Where’s Cap? Where’s Thor? Where’s Hulk? Are they on vacation or something?” But they’re being really smart about removing everyone in a way that sort of hopefully takes care of that.
Do we get to see more of Thor’s role across the greater Nine Worlds and his place within all the other?
Yeah, yeah. I think we cover more ground than we did in the first one. He went off not just in Asgard, we certainly venture out into the bigger universe. The scope of this just feels massive. We just were in Iceland for a week, and there’s volcanic lava, rock, mountains and snowcapped mountains and we didn’t see that in the first one. It already feels like there’s a bigger expanse to it.
