Kenneth Branagh and Anthony Hopkins have denied rumours of conflict between cast and crew members on the set of Thor.

Speaking to Hero Complex, Branagh, who is directing the adaptation, quashed the claims that Hopkins had openly belittled co-star Chris Hemsworth's acting skills and frustrated him with constant complaints.

Hopkins has also issued a statement attacking the rumours.

"I am having the time of my life making Thor with Ken and Chris," said the 72-year-old.

"They have made every day immensely fun and collaborative, and we're all puzzled that someone would fabricate a story suggesting otherwise. I'm proud to say that Thor has been one of the great experiences of my career."

Hopkins is playing the god Odin alongside Hemsworth, who takes the starring role as Odin's son Thor.

Branagh confirmed that filming is nearly complete on the project.
