A New Human Character
In Thor, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) worked for Dr. Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) and had an assistant in new original character Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings). In the sequel, everyone seemingly moves up a tier and now Darcy has an assistant in new character Ian Boothby, who’s only shown up once in the trailers and marketing materials yet (see above image).
Producer Craig Kyle:
“We did create a new character, a guy named Ian who was Darcy Lewis’s, intern. So, our intern has an intern [LAUGHS]. And he’s kind of the fresh human eyes in this whole experience like Darcy was somewhat on the first film, but again starts small with these kids. We show the threat. We meet our heroes and friends, find out where our folks are from Earth that we love so much, and the story just kind of rolls out in a very comfortable pace.”
Jonathan Howard plays Ian Boothby and his role remains mysterious outside of filling the gap left by Natalie Portman heading up to Asgard.
