Rene Russo chatted with Vulture about her upcoming participation in Thor 2, reprising her role as Thor’s mother Frigga (stop sniggering) from the first film.
“You know, they cut me [down] in the first film. [Director] Kenneth Branagh sent me a nice note, because he understood, he’s an actor. You move on, what are you going to do? But I think they’re going to need a good mom in the next film. Loki needs his mom. What the hell?
“I have a lot of compassion for him. But we might have to have a conversation about what he just did. And I might have to have a chat with Thor. But I am so confused – is Thor my son or not? People have been telling me recently, ‘No, you’re not his mother.’ It’s all so confusing! I got to tell ya, it would be a little embarrassing if I don’t know. I need to read more about her.
It seems she now appreciates the importance of research when it comes to playing a role in the Marvel universe!
