Speaking to GQ, Hemsworth briefly touched on what didn’t work in Thor: The Dark World, saying the 2013 movie didn’t quite take enough risks and felt a bit too “familiar” as a result.
“The first one is good, the second one is meh,” Hemsworth said. “What masculinity was, the classic archetype—it just all starts to feel very familiar. I was so aware that we were right on the edge.”
Hemsworth previously discussed why he pushed for a major tonal shift with the third film, Thor: Ragnarok. Seeing the slightly poor response The Dark World was receiving, Hemsworth knew a changed was needed and credited Ragnarok director Taika Waititi for successfully bringing about this change.
While appearing on Jimmy Kimmy Live last year, Hemsworth revealed the conversations he had with Waititi about doing something completely different with Thor.
“I remember meeting Taika early in the process and he said, ‘let’s just break everything we know and destroy it and rebuild it,'” Hemsworth said at the time. “And then everyday was about exploring the unknown and trying something different.
“And I got pretty bored as myself as that character and so did he, and maybe a few people out there. So we thought let’s do something different, and every day was improvised and a journey.”
In a newly released deleted scene from Thor: The Dark World, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) finally gets what he always wanted — the throne of Asgard, the people, and Thor’s hammer. Too bad it’s all in his head.
While imprisoned in Asgard for attacking New York City in The Avengers, Thor’s trickster brother cast an illusion that saw himself taking the throne in a grand coronation. You’ll notice the scene isn’t fully complete; many of the visual effects aren’t fleshed out and Rene Russo’s Frigga is inserted in the scene through title cards.
