Marvel’s Thor wrapped filming back in May, which has given the film a full year of post-production and enough time for director Kenneth Branagh to tweak or alter anything that needs tweaking or altering. And that’s what he’s doing.
Word from What’s Playing is that reshoots will be taking place in the near future which require Nordic men, women and children with “charactery faces”.
These reshoots don’t sound like last minute Jonah Hex-type reshoots, and in this particular case they may just require extras for crowd shots. No details yet on whether Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman or Anthony Hopkins will be reshooting any scenes, but as Hemsworth has had to remain in shape for The Avengers filming early next year there shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
In the film Thor, a powerful but arrogant and reckless warrior, is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here Thor meets a young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), and learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world (Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston) sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
