It has been explained by Thor cinematographer Haris Zambarloukos why there are so many Dutch angle shots in the God of Thunder’s first MCU movie. The choice to employ so many Dutch angle views throughout 2011’s Thor, according to Zambarloukos, “was a hard decision to make.” He said, “But it appeared to be a very basic method of presenting kind of the difference between discord and harmony in a figure or a landscape, and without much, and it seemed to work in that visual world that the comic books had come from. Additionally, it appeared to be related to the German expressionist philosophy of going deeply into one’s soul and mind.

Zambarloukos also made a reference to Thor’s ancestry. And Thor is a sort of mythical, contemporary retelling of myth. And mythology has always explored the human situation and mind, the speaker said. “And it’s dissonant, and it goes back to earning and creating a kind of harmony or dissonance.” The cameraman said, “So that play, when you use it, and when you don’t, I think is a very useful and interesting tool.” Zambarloukos continued by describing the Dutch angle technique’s personal relevance to him. “I believe we’ve never utilised it, or at least not with Kenneth Branagh as extensively as we did in Thor. However, it always comes around to us. In some films, we always feel that there’s a specific point when we have to – it has its place.”

Thor, a film by Kenneth Branagh, explores the history of the title Asgardian. Following his father Odin’s expulsion from Asgard, Thor acclimates to life on Earth and forms a close bond with scientist Jane Foster. But soon long, Thor learns of Loki’s evil plan to seize control of Asgard and gains the humility necessary to be worthy of using the hammer Mjolnir. Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, has voiced concern regarding the timing of his return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He said, “I have to be careful how I express it because I have no clue what’s going to happen in the following phase. There are always discussions. Officially, though, I’m not sure. Hemsworth stated, “I don’t want to keep doing it until people are so worn out that they roll their eyes when they see me appear on screen as that character. He emphasised the significance of moving Thor into his next evolutionary phase for any upcoming appearances. I’ve liked being able to reimagine that persona several times, he remarked. Although I don’t yet know the solution, I would love to attempt to determine how we might repeat it and make things a little surprising.
