THOR: THE DARK WORLD
Total Film has posted a spoiler-riffic interview with Marvel’s Kevin Feige, who spoke about what occurred with the reshoots earlier this year. The video is intriguing and definitely worth a watch if you don’t care about spoilers in the slightest.
The website also interviewed Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston; and Natalie Portman and Kat Dennings for a possible “Thor 3” wishlist.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Forbes has posted an interview with Michael Rooker from Comikaze Expo, where the actor spoke briefly about the film and the role of Groot.
“Groot is not a tree, he’s a different being from a different universe. And he’s not like a tree the way we have trees,” Rooker told Forbes. “We use it for cordwood, for cooking and heating our homes. Groot is a whole different being from a whole different galaxy, somewhere you don’t even know where he’s from. I don’t even know where he’s from. He just happens to look like bark.”
IAmRogue spoke with Chris Pratt, also about Groot, and Vin Diesel’s portrayal of the character.
“Dude, I think Vin Diesel is going to be great. The role of Groot is also an amazing role. I want to tell you about it but I feel like if I tell you even one little thing it’s going to start pulling the thread that is going to expose too much,” Pratt told IAmRogue. “But I think Vin is going to be amazing. Vin Diesel’s voice is an incredible tool that he has. I’ve watched a couple of his movies now that I knew that he was going to be cast as Groot. Just like listening to his voice … when you think of Vin Diesel you think of the look. You think of that Diesel look … Dom, xXx, the buff and all that stuff. But truly his greatest talent is his voice I think. I would not be surprised if this doesn’t open up a whole new world to him doing voice acting. He’s really got a special tool in that voice. It’s deep, raspy and so distinct. I think he’s going to do a great job voicing this role.”

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Cobie Smulders spoke with Access Hollywood about reprising her role as Agent Maria Hill in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
“It’s exciting for me because I get to suit up again, but it takes place right after ‘The Avengers.’ The Battle of New York has just happened,” said Smulders. “It really is working with the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, which my character Maria Hill is a big part of. It’s sort of showing the inner workings of S.H.I.E.L.D. and how it’s very flawed at the moment.”
IAmRogue also spoke with Smulders about the “Captain America” sequel, reiterating that Maria Hill is involved, despite the lack of the character in the trailer.

Airs Tuesdays on ABC
Sir Ben Kingsley spoke with Vanity Fair about his rumored return to the role of Trevor Slattery for another Marvel Project, and the actor seemingly confirms that it will be a Marvel One-Shot rather than an appearance in a feature film.
“Sometimes [Marvel] tacks on a short film to one of their other releases, maybe on a DVD or something. I haven’t heard anything at all about this. So it’s in progress. It will have to remain under wraps,” Kingsley told Vanity Fair. “Marvel was so brilliant in the way they kept the transition from the Mandarin to Trevor Slattery in ‘Iron Man 3.’ They were absolutely brilliant at it. I so respect the way they dearly want to surprise their audiences. But we will just have to leave it in the realm of rumor.”
