- THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Well some new awesome pics from the set of Thor The Dark World has made its way onto the internet and not only do we have that for you, we also have Tom Hiddleston’s recent interview with GQ, where he speaks about the film. You can thank us right about now and drop your comment down below:
Hiddleston also spoke with GQ about the upcoming film and the pressure on the sequel because of this summer's The Avengers.
"It's mostly self-applied pressure actually. I remember Chris [Hemsworth] and I saying over the summer when Avengers came out, where do we go now? Going into this one we were - very flatteringly - involved in big creative conversations about tone, and story. Thor and Loki are these two characters that people know and love and understand - so we have to take this in the right direction. You want to do something new - you don't want to re-heat the same recipe in the microwave, you want to cook up something different and exciting - but you don't want to lose the things that worked the first time. So we're our own slave drivers, in a way. Complacency is the enemy. But that's exciting and it's going well. I have never seen a group of actors or a crew work harder."
Tom Hiddleston has played the big bad in two Marvel films, first debuting as the god of mischief, in Thor and assembled Marvel heroes in Avengers. However, as Loki faces the consequences for his actions, he will not be the only villain to appear in TDW, he will be joined by Christopher Eccleston who will be playing the role of Malekith the Accursed.

GQ then asked how much influence The Avengers has had on the sequel, specifically will we get a reference to the Hulk smashing Loki?
"Yeah! [laughs] He's certainly eaten humble pie. The springboard for us in the second Thor film is at the end of Avengers you see Thor and Loki beamed up back to Asgard. The first question that we all asked was 'what happens next? What does Odin have to say about the events of Avengers?' 'What's Jane Foster been up to while she wasn't involved?' It's really exciting, actually. We're literally half way through - we started at the start of August and we should be finished by Christmas. It's going beautifully."

In Thor: The Dark World, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness.
