Thor Speaks! My Fun Interview with Chris Hemsworth for "Thor!" 


I was very happy to finally meet Chris Hemsworth. I first took notice of the actor as Captain Kirk's daddy in 2009's "Star Trek," and I was very glad that he's finally starring in his own big movie as the god of thunder, "Thor!" In this interview, we talked about:

Why he's perfect to play the part
What went through his head when he heard that he got the part?
What attracted him to the film?
The great scene between he and Anthony Hopkins, who plays his father Odin, when he is banished to Midgard. It's a heartbreaking scene with a great anecdote
How he prepared for the role both physically and emotionally
Was he a fan of Thor growing up?
Working on "Thor" as a blank canvass
I predict he'll be a major star by the end of the summer -- is he prepared?

Director Kenneth Branagh Talks About "Thor" 


Director Kenneth Branagh Talks About "Thor"
It was truly a blessing meeting Kenneth Branagh, the Shakespearan expert who's making his superhero movie for the very first time! Branagh made the material work! His knowledge of characterizations and pacing did wonders for "Thor!" In this interview, we talked about:

Why he's a god in my book
How was he able to make a big blockbuster!
The big action scenes versus the smaller, quieter moments in "Thor"
How he balanced the big and the small scenes
How he zeroed in on Chris Hemsworth to play his Nordic god
"Thor" is steeped in Shakespearean tropes, is that why Branagh was interested in making the movie?
Fritz Lang would have been proud with his set design -- what/who were his other influences?
