Speaking to Huffington Post, Tom Hiddleston talked about the directorial passage between Thor and Thor: The Dark World:

Ken established the tone, so we've taken the baton and kept running. Alan Taylor is fantastic, one of the men responsible for 'Game of Thrones' which is so of that world, a very grounded, gritty, earthy world where warriors and swords and monsters and magic all meet, so his experience of that has given him a fantastic take on the whole world of Thor....He was refashioning those archetypes in space. We talked about King Lear and that kind of dynastic drama, about succession, with somebody at the top of the tree, and somebody else due to succeed the throne, there's always a wrestling if it's father and son... it's all very dynastic.
