Craig Kyle, whowasis a writer on the film, was quite optimistic recalling, “The trailers were received pretty well, but I think everyone was in ‘let’s wait and see’ mode.

It was extraordinary.” Due to the audience reception that proved Thor to be a success, the characters of the film were able to make their way to The Avengers. Kenneth Branagh, director of Thor praises Chris Hemsworth stating, “Chris Hemsworth is a magnificent Thor, and Tom Hiddleston is a superb Loki.
