Kevin Feige Talks THOR at Comic Con

The big news recently on THOR was the casting of Natalie Portman but at Comic Con we caught up with Kevin Feige who revealed the film will begin shooting in January. He revealed to us that finding his lead Chris Hemsworth who played young Captain Kirk in JJ Abrams Star Trek was a perfect fit. He said quote:

You know what, it’s one of those rare things that doesn’t happen often but people like me always say it so it probably sounds cliché. We auditioned a lot of people. We did a lot of screen tests. We put a lot of people on video and one guy just kept popping out and it was Chris. You realize, regardless of what he’s saying or how he’s saying it, you’re engaged with him. It’s that movie star quality which I think he has. And, thankfully, he looks like Thor which is a good combination.

As far as how the film is coming he revealed:

Kenneth is great and we’ve got Tom Hiddleston, we’ve got Chris Hemsworth who I can’t wait until next year when we bring all of those guys out here. Natalie Portman’s on board which we’ve mentioned. I think we’re nearing, closing in on Odins and Heindels and the Warriors Three which we’re excited about. We’re about halfway through prep. We start filming in January.
