Chris Hemsworth Believes ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Needs Some Unpredictable ‘Guardians Of Galaxy’ Type Humor

Chris Hemsworth is currently out doing the promotion rounds for next month’s In The Heart of The Sea, which of course means he’s going to get some questions about Thor: Ragnarok. While speaking with Cinema Blend, the actor revealed that he’s hoping for a little more “off beat” humor when he teams up with Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk in the upcoming threequel.

I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians [Of The Galaxy]. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know?

It’s been rumored that one of the reasons that Marvel brought in director Taika Waititi was to lighten up the tone of Chris Yost’s dark post-apocalyptic script for the film. Hemsworth seems fairly confident that the director is capable of the task at hand.

I feel we had less of the sort of the naivety or fun or humor that the first [Thor] might have had. I wish we had more of that in the second [movie] … We’ve done regal. We’ve done Shakespeare, and we’ve shown that. I think now it’s time to go, ‘Ok, cool. Let’s try something different,’ and Taika just had such a brilliant sort of take and funny kind of ideas about where we could [go], how we could do that.

So, while some might not agree with Hemsworth’s statements, I think he’s dead right. While the film doesn’t need to dive too deep into the comedy region, I think “off beat” in the humor department would work great here. More weird and out there, less Selvig running around naked. Let us know what you think about the topic and Hemsworth’s comments in the section below.
