Although it’s not quite summer yet, the summer movie season is already off to a fine start with souped-up car flick “Fast Five” dominating the box office . This week, the mighty “Thor” bows into theaters, the first of several superhero movies headed into cineplexes in 2011.
MTV News has been on the case of this film since the beginning, and thanks to a series of recent interviews with the cast, we have even more material to present, like character introductions , “Avengers” teases and now, a couple of hints at what you won’t see in the theatrical version, but on the Blu-ray/DVD.
In addition to what director Kenneth Branagh said about the special features, we asked Tom Hiddleston, who plays Thor’s brother and god of mischief Loki, what deleted scenes we might see on the DVD.
“There was a fun scene with myself and Chris before he gets crowned king where we were two brothers waiting in the wings in a way, which I quite enjoyed, but I can see exactly why Kenneth hasn’t kept it in the film,” he said of one of his favorite scenes to shoot that didn’t make the final cut.
Jaimie Alexander, who plays Thor’s childhood friend and fellow warrior Lady Sif, said she’s worried there might be a lot of blooper footage.
“Oh man, they shot so much of us in rehearsal in stunt practice, getting hit in the face and being idiots,” she revealed. “So I’m sure you’ll see a lot of that, especially from me. There are a lot of extra battle sequences that they didn’t put in the film. Extended Jotunheim battle and extended destroyer battle, which I’m sure they’ll put on the DVD extras.”
