Producer Craig Kyle gives new villain details for Thor: The Dark World

01.29.2013

When it comes to villany related news for THOR: THE DARK WORLD, we didn't get many specifics. Now thanks to executive producer, Craig Kyle we get some new info on the baddies, expectations, and a closer look into Asgard.

CBM was kind enough to share some details from the next issue of Empire Magazine, which hasn't even hit the shelves yet. First he talks about how the expectation changes for a solo superhero film, then gets to Asgard:

“Like in Indiana Jones, while there's high stakes and high danger, there's always fun. We have to constantly redefine what a superhero film is or it'd just exhaust the audience. So Iron Man is the James Bond-y, classic, suave action hero; Captain America's the period piece; Hulk is the monster movie; Avengers the disaster movie; and Thor is the science-fiction epic. By bringing director Alan Taylor into the mix, with his expertise on The Sopranos, Mad Men and Game Of Thrones, we came up with a take that allows us to get more into the nooks and crannies of Asgard and its people. We spend more time on the ground with the commoners, as opposed to in the palace. It's a very complicated blend [of genres: high science fiction, gritty fantasy, and realism]. Thor is, until Guardians of the Galaxy hits, by far our most wild, fringe Marvel piece. But that's why it's the Marvel Universe and not Marvel Earth!”

He also mentions that along with already having to deal with Loki, the dark elves also known as "The Marauders" will be led by Christopher Eccelston's character Malekith (already knew), and will take advantage of Asgard's weakened state to return and take their revenge.

I agree with what every one is saying. To me, Thor was the best. I loved it! And strangely, Iron Man is my least favorite. It goes Thor, Hulk, Cap, Iron Man. All of them are really good, but we all have our favorite avenger :)

Given the fact that THOR movie could have been a disaster if told the wrong way, the first movie is friggin' awesome. I'm excited for THOR 2 to really expand the character, story and action.

To be honest, Thor was one of my favorite Phase One Movies. I can't wait to see Thor 2, especially since we explore the other realms of the universe.

Constructive critisism is not the same as hatred

I liked the scale and the operatic majesty that Brannagh brought to Thor 1. But details like the poor character development of his comrades in arms disappointed me. The Frost giants looked great but the conflict with them was pretty lame. The Portman romance part was too stretched out, though not as bad as in Green Lantern.
Hopefully now that he is properly introduced the next film can tell a proper rip-roaring tale and not fall victim to the suits trying to please everybody in the audience.

I don't get all the criticism for the first Thor movie. I thought it was great and was a good origins film that really had the most influence and impact on The Avengers. Also it introduced us to Chris Hemsworth.

I just think the film Thor gets a little bit too much hate for being so awesome.

The scene that Anthony Hopkins sends Chris Hemsworth down to earth after their huge father-son argument had me full of tears.

Agree. I love when Thor is angry at his father and calls him a bitter old man or fool.

Thor is the science-fiction epic, says the producer, does he know his genres? Thor would fall more under fantasy than scifi in my humble opinion. Intergalactic fantasy maybe? Anyway, this film has the potential to be awesome if the story is a bit better told than in the first Thor film.

Then again, Mr. Kyle might know something that you don't. As unlikely as it seems...

True. He might. But even if they do zoom around in spaceships, its still vikings and elves and magic. Space opera fantasy?
