Chris Hemsworth: ‘Thor’ Sequel Poses ‘Difficult’ Challenges

Asgard’s mightiest hero returns to Earth next fall in “Thor: The Dark World.” But the Thunder God is going to have to face new obstacles and challenges in his third big-screen adventure — and coming up with those obstacles hasn’t been an entirely easy process, says Chris Hemsworth.

“In a way, it almost becomes difficult at this point,” Hemsworth told Empire (via CBM) about returning to the “Dark World” of Thor. “Thor 1 was the origin story and he starts off as a brash child and ends as the hero; the danger then is, where does he go from here?”

Hemsworth strongly believes that Thor can’t go through the same journey of overcoming his “bad temper” this time around. On top of that, the sequel can’t go too hard at Thor’s fish-out-of-water antics, either, now that the hero has been to Earth. It doesn’t seem like Hemsworth has any easy answers for how the cast and crew figured out where to go with “The Dark World.” But judging on Marvel’s past successes, we feel like there isn’t too much to worry about, particularly with “Game of Thrones” director Alan Taylor at the helm.

“If you look at Game Of Thrones, what I love about it is that it has that mythical element but you’re always grounded in such an organic world,” Hemsworth said of his new director. “I think that’s the goal scored second time round.”
