Tom Hiddleston talked to Press Association (via CBM) about Alan Taylor's work on Thor: The Dark World.

It's fantastic, truly. We are making an amazing film, and we're having a wonderful time. It's so exciting to have established characters and an established setting in the world, and we are working so hard to cook up something new. That is what is exciting to me – taking what we know, taking what we love and deepening it and giving it an extra dimension. I think director Alan Taylor is really shaping up the world of Asgard and the world of these characters.

Speaking to Empire (via CBM) Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke about his role in Batman & Robin:

I don't regret it at all. I felt that the character was interesting and two movies before that one Joel Schumacher was at his height. So the decision-making process was not off. At the same time I was doing Eraser over there and Warner Bros. begged me to do the movie....In most cases I don't regret the movies that failed or were not as good. It's always easy to be smug in hindsight, right?
