Kenneth Branagh, the director of Thor, once again commented on Patty Jenkins, the director of Thor 2 in an interview with Vulture:
We haven’t spoken, we’ve exchanged letters, really just saying “well done” and “how thrilling.” I think it’s a great choice and I’m really excited about that, and I think Marvel have always been so imaginative about the way they match these projects with directors who may have very particular things to bring to them but may not be superficially a natural kind of fit. But my gut tells me this is a tremendous choice, so I’m very excited. I’m also thrilled that the second movie is being made, and I just think her in combination with those actors is such a terrific thing. And I think she’ll get on in the way that I did with the Marvel guys, which was a very happy, creative collaboration.”
Gary Oldman spoke to Collider about shooting IMAX camera for The Dark Knight Rises:
Well we shot, obviously Wally Pfister [the director of photography] and Chris [Nolan] shoot film. The IMAX camera, it’s a strange thing. There’s only so much film that you can put through the gate, you get two takes from a roll I guess. The thing is, it’s very loud. It’s a very noisy piece of equipment and it’s quite cumbersome, it’s quite a large—you don’t hold an IMAX camera, I mean you can steadicam it. But of course you have to loop, you have to dub everything you do on the IMAX because you can’t hear the dialogue.
