“I was completely intimidated,” Portman once told The Telegraph. “I kept messing up lines around him because I was so nervous, and he was so sweet about it. He made me feel at ease. He’d be like, ‘That’s a really hard line to say,’ and I’d be like, ‘No, I just can’t get it out.’ Your jaw drops on the floor watching him he’s just… Man.”

During an interview with Static Multimedia, Portman openly shared a revelation that she occasionally found herself unable to engage in scenes with Anthony Hopkins fully. In fact, she admitted that there were instances where she momentarily forgot to act alongside the esteemed actor.

The film was praised for its action sequences, stunning visual effects, and the chemistry between the cast members, particularly Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hiddleston as Loki. The exploration of Asgard and the other realms added depth to the mythology of the Thor franchise.

However, criticisms centered around the film’s plot, which some found convoluted and lacking in coherence. The antagonist, Malekith the Dark Elf, was considered underdeveloped and failed to leave a lasting impact. Additionally, some viewers felt that the film’s humor occasionally detracted from its darker tone.

Thor: The Dark World is available for streaming on Disney+.
