Joss Whedon Rewrote Part of Thor: The Dark World

Joss Whedon Saturn Awards 2013

Apparently, Marvel needs the Joss Whedon touch on all their movies. Crave's Collider website reported Wednesday Whedon was brought in to rewrite a couple of troublesome scenes for Thor: The Dark World.

Whedon is still working on the script for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so we're not sure when he found the time to do this. But Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor says Whedon's help was invaluable.

“Joss came in to save our lives a couple of times,” laughs the director. “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.”

Thor: The Dark World opens November 8.
