A brand spanking new trailer for Thor: The Dark World is due to drop August 7th, but if you can't wait that long for a slice of Asgardian awesomeness, we've got an interview with Volstagg the Voluminous for you to check out. Volstagg is played by British actor and he spoke to Comic Book Movie about getting suited up for the superhero sequel:

Thor is a completely unique experience altogether. I had to wear this vest that contained tubes pumping ice water on to my torso, otherwise my costume would have killed me! First there was the big foam fat suit that went from my toes to my neck, then the costume on top of that, and then the big beard, then the wig, then I had to go and fight! The truth is, I am really passionate about these action roles. I don't want to appear like some big bouncer standing on the door, I like to bring more to it and for me, that is the best part of the industry. I've worked with Alan Taylor before and he has a heart the size of planet that he wears on his arm and I'm forever indebted to him.

Stevenson was then asked if Volstagg would be kicking ass in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron:

I haven't heard a thing!! But I'd be absolutely delighted!! I'm under option with Marvel but hopefully there will be a few more Avengers films to come, I'm thinking three or four.

I would love to see Volstagg and the Warriors Three lay some smack down in Thor 2. They are they really good at making people bleed.

Thor: The Dark World is scheduled to land in theaters November 8th.
