Tadanobu Asano, who plays Hogun in the movie, was also seen hitting the red carpet in a black suit. Coming to the event with an interpreter, the Japanese actor admitted that his role in "Thor" is important, yet he wanted people to watch his work in the past as well.
While cameras were searching for Hollywood stars, children seemed to have something else in their mind. During the event, children kept coming to hold Thor's hammer, and they were seen posing with the hammer.
