We keep getting more and more juicy tidbits about the 'Thor' movie. This time, the information comes from Ashley Miller, who is co-writing the script with Zack Stentz. In an inteview with Cinefools, Miller discusses his approach to writing the script. Is it a fantasy film or a comic book film?
I'm not sure if I accept the distinction. On some level, the answer is simply "yes". THOR is a comic book film in that it's based on the Marvel conception of the character as super-hero. But there are definitely some big fantasy elements working behind that. He is the God of Thunder, after all. It's hard to approach the character without both of those things informing the work.
The biggest question for Thor fans, however, is whether or not the character will exist in other Marvel films, including the planned 'Avengers' movie.
We definitely wrote with the bigger story in mind, or at least the bigger universe. Our script is very firmly rooted in the Marvel film world. We were constantly looking for ways to connect Thor to the other movies and heroes, even if they were simply in passing.
Sounds like we'll see Thor in more than just one movie.
