Marvel’s Kevin Feige talks ‘grittier’ ‘Thor: The Dark World’ and updates ‘Ant-Man’

Edgar Wright’s script for the pint-sized hero is heading for a rewrite

Looks like the Marvel universe will be getting a little more rugged thanks to director Alan Taylor‘s “Thor: The Dark World.”

“Alan is bringing a grittier, more visceral, more textured patina to the designs of the worlds, and to Asgard in particular,” said Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige in an interview with EW. “It’s less to chase either ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Lord of the Rings’ — because you’re not going to catch up. But part of the fun of Thor over the other characters is he doesn’t have to stay on Earth. We visit a few of the other realms in this new movie.”

Feige’s comments were included in EW’s Marvel Phase Two roundup published earlier today, which also featured a bit of news on director Edgar Wright‘s “Ant-Man,” technically a Phase Three project that the studio head claims is currently heading for a rewrite.
