Interested in hearing what the script writers of Thor had to say about their work with Thor’s origins? There’s an interview with Ashley Edward Miller over at Airlock Alpha in which he talks about a lot of things including working on the Thor script. Are the fanboys ready to froth?
“It’s about as close as you can reasonably expect it to be” to the comic book, Miller said. “Obviously, you have to make some adjustments, and you have to compress some things simply for the sake of being able to get a lot of information out and being able to create a believable fantasy world that intersects with ours.”
Now for me, this makes 100% sense. Of course you have to make adjustments when writing an adaptation. There are always going to be those people who feel the rage rising and get ready to Hulk out with any change made. Those people will never be happy with an adaptation.
I’m totally cool with changes, as long as they don’t go the route of a certain other live-action Thor I seem to recall.
