Tom Hiddleston spoke to Flicks And the City (Via CBM) about Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor:
Alan is amazing. He has this extraordinary breadth of vision about ‘The Dark World’ – just the scale of it, what he imagined Asgard to be, what the depth and the specificity of his imagination about extending the reach of the film and taking the audience into parts of the ‘Thor Universe’ that they haven’t seen yet, I’ve found that really exciting
IO9 posted this exclusive look at Zod’s armor in Man of Steel.
For me, the only challenge really was helping David Goyer put the story together and helping guide the screenplay where it needed to go and then it was dumping it on Zack Snyder and saying to Zack, ‘I hope you can deliver what it is we all see in this.’ And he really knocked it out of the park, he’s done something very spectacular that I think audiences today are really going to be excited by in a way that I was as a kind when I saw the Christopher Reeve version in 1978.
