Natalie Portman on Thor: The Dark World: "I didn't want to make it like Bill & Ted"

Actress spoke about her role in the Marvel sequel in cinemas on October 30

Natalie Portman has spoken about her role in the upcoming Thor: The Dark World and has told Empire that filming the Marvel sequel was a “whole different adventure this time” because “Jane is the fish out of water.”

She continued: “I didn’t want to make it like Bill And Ted, or like the Valley Girl dumped into Shakespeareland.”

When asked about punching Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, the actress joked: “It feels fantastic. He was a great sport about it.”

Director Alan Taylor spoke about the new release and admitted he was “surprised” Thor survived till the end of the film, as he’s known mostly for killing viewers’ favourite characters in his television work.

He explained: "People hate me because I killed Ned Stark on Thrones. But I also killed Caesar in Rome, Wild Bill Hickock in Deadwood and Christopher in The Sopranos. I just get called in to murder people's favourite characters, so I'm surprised Thor survived this one. There are a few people who don't make it out alive here. There could be some surprises!"

Alongside Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston, the original cast of the Marvel movie – Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba and Stellan Skargardhave all reprised their roles from the first Thor film, which grossed £290 million in cinemas worldwide.

It was recently revealed that the former Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston has joined the cast and plays super villain Malekith the Accursed.

The film sees the God of Thunder, Chris Hemsworth, forced to team up with his trecherous brother Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, to defeat a great evil, namely, Malekith.

Thor: The Dark World opens in UK cinemas on October 30.

Considering the director said himself, "I just get called in to murder people's favourite characters," I wonder who might get killed off... Any guesses?
