Thor: Love and Thunder had its Avant premiere in Los Angeles and the cast of the film gave a conference. In Geek Culture we were present and we tell you everything that was said, here
One of the most anticipated films by fans of the MCU is the fourth installment of those focused on Thor, Thor: Love and Thunder. After the avant premiere world that happened in The Angelsthe cast gave a press conference in which geeky culture was present. And so that you calm down the wait for the movie a bit, we tell you what the actors said about the movie in this note.
One of the film’s great innovations is that it was shot in the Volume. This set is made up of lampshades 4K led, augmented reality and 3D CGIand it is where all the episodes of the second season of The Mandalorian. By using this type of screen, the actor knows what his environment is like, something that does not happen when using the green screen.
“Recording there involved fewer people and everything had to be planned beforehand”, commented Taika Waititi at the conference when asked how was the experience of recording in The Volume. One of the great advantages of recording on this set, as he later explained Chris Hemsworthis that things like sunsets are reflected in the face of the actor and gives a more natural touch to the finished product.
But in addition to having a new recording method, the film includes a new villain: hat. Interpreted by Christian bale, this villain who used to be a peaceful man suffers a tremendous loss that makes him become this destroyer of gods who threatens the lives of all deities. One of the questions you are probably asking yourself is why bale agreed to play the villain? And rest assured because that question came up during the conference and the response from bale couldn’t be more quirky.
“It’s a joy to play a villain, there’s a lot less pressure than when you play a hero. Everyone is fascinated with the villains. Taika he manages to make it funny and at the same time you feel sorry for him”explained bale about his decision to play gor. “You come to understand why this man is making these terrible decisions and understand what motivates him.”
Although the arrivals of new characters are interesting, not everything is new since there is a person who returns to the MCU after almost ten years: Natalie Portmann. Jane Foster return to MCU In this fourth installment of Thor and it could not be more different from the scientific one we know. Jane is now a carrier Mjolnirfully groomed, and has his own suit.
“It is an honor to be able to have the opportunity to explore in an incredible way this superheroine who made me realize everything that Chris did for ten yearsPortman responded when asked what it felt like to become the hero. “When I worked years ago with Marvel and it was just the girl from ThorI did not appreciate all the work that was behind the production and now that I am part of it I can say that it is demanding”.
And maybe the arrival of Jane to the MCU have important meaning for Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson)the new king of Asgard. “Valkyrie she is a professional soldier who finds herself trapped in the bureaucratic system”commented Thompson. “And she misses her sisters and fighting alongside them. When she arrives Jane a Asgard, Valkyrie she feels like before again because now she has a new sister who accompanies her.”
Finally, in terms of the characters, the film would not be one of Thor without its protagonist, Chris Hemsworth. The character of the actor becomes the first to achieve four films and this is because people connect with the character and want to know more about him. But Thor that we met in the early years of Marvel is very different from what we are seeing from Avengers: Endgame.
“Since Taika got involved, he has all the typical qualities of a teenager that were not in the previous films”commented Hemsworth. “Have fun, enjoy, get excited. Anything that makes it fun. And that’s something that Taika insisted”. And to give us an idea of what the Thor with which he identifies the most, the actor commented that the What If…? it is quite similar to the character they want to achieve.
The mind behind the film Taika Waititi, also participated in the press conference and talked a bit about the music of the film. The soundtrack was compared to the previous film, and it was commented that if ragnarok It’s an eighties synth pop album. love and thunder it’s heavy metal. And this has a reason.
“The aesthetic that surrounds the film is explosive, it has a strong color palette, with music from the 80s that had that style as Metallica. Being able to use this music was another one of my dreams come true. Even the logo of the film refers us to one of those bands whose logos we drew in our notebooks“he explained Waititi.
A conference of Marvel it would not be one without the mind behind the study, Kevin Feig. the president of Marvel was at the conference to make sure the actors didn’t reveal spoilers of the movie. But he also answered a couple of questions. The most interesting was one made by the audience, in which they were asked how far in advance they start writing movies or series for the future of Marvel. And Feige did not say an exact number, but commented that they begin to plan between 5 and 10 years before everything that will come. So probably at least the next few 5 years of MCU.
And as for the new phase of the MCUafter an audience member asked if we were going to learn more about what’s coming up next san diego comic conthe president of Marvel commented that the study will have its own panel in the comic-con and that they are going to present some of the things that are coming. So we are going to have to be attentive to everything that is announced since the future of the MCU and probably your new stage.
