Joss Whedon Rewrote Portions Of Thor: The Dark World

As director and creative consultant for Marvel Studios, Joss Whedon has a lot of pull. He oversees the operations of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and as such will be the go-to person when a director needs help with the vision of a film.

When Alan Taylor called for a couple of reshoots for Thor: The Dark World, some worried that there was trouble on the set. But it wasn’t that at all, in fact it was Taylor having some minor trouble with grasping the vision of the script. So the filmmaker called none other than Whedon to help with that vision.

SFX Magazine (via Comic Book Movie) confirms that Whedon was asked to help with some of the issues in the script. In fact, Taylor says Whedon did this on more than one occasion.

Here’s the full quote:

Joss came in to save our lives a couple of times. We had a major scene that was not working on the page at all in London, and he basically got airlifted in, like a SWAT team or something. He came down, rewrote the scene, and before he got back to his plane I sort of grabbed him and said, ‘And this scene and this scene?’ And he rewrote two other scenes that I thought had problems. Then finally we let go of him, he took off again, and we shot the scenes; and they were just much better and much lighter on their feet. Much more fun, much more surprising than what we had been trying to do. I can relate to guys who come out of the TV world, since that’s where I come from. And being able to land and work and solve a problem quickly… I really was grateful.

It honestly sounds like those rumors of on-set troubles were greatly exaggerated. Sure it may look like they were cutting it close, but reshoots are a part of any film production, and based on what we have seen at D23, Thor: The Dark World looks great. It should be interesting to see what kind of changes were made and if they are blatantly obvious.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins, Thor: The Dark World opens in theaters on November 8.
