The actor appeared at a panel at Wizard World Philadelphia alongside Loki actor Tom Hiddleston to discuss the upcoming flick, and courtesy of our onsite reporter Brandon Davis, had this to say about why fans should be excited about it.
"Man, it is a lot of fun. I think tonally it's a big shift in a great way, more than anything we've seen before. Um, Taika Waititi, the director, if you know any of his work, yeah, he's just an incredible sort of comedic talent, um, a lot of heart in everything he does, um, but you know there's a, it's a very different Thor, it's a different Loki, I think there's a, we go off on another world that we haven't experienced before. It's fun you know, uh, but that's me skirting around the issue because I can't say too much."
I'm glad to hear that Waititi is keeping the humorous aspects of the franchise intact, as along with Guardian's of the Galaxy the Thor series seems to place a higher priority on humor.
Along with Hemsworth and Hiddleston, Idris Elba (Heimdall) and Anthony Hopkins (Odin) are also returning to the franchise, with new additions coming aboard such as Cate Blanchett (Hela), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), and Karl Urban (Skurge). Of course, many fans are also looking forward to Mark Ruffalo's appearance as The Hulk.
