‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Director Gets Tips From James Gunn

James Gunn

Last night on Twitter, Marvel directors James Gunn and Peyton Reed shared some Marvel movie tips with upcoming Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi. Based on the conversation, Waititi may have to make some changes to his upcoming film Thor: Ragnarok. You can read the conversation below.

Looks like Waititi will need to fill the explosion quota Peyton Reed and James Gunn mentioned and make sure not to break any federal laws, but in the meantime it looks like Thor: Ragnarok looks to be fine in regards to humor. Many fans have hoped however that Thor: Ragnarok would be a bit more grim due to Ragnarok being essentially the apocalypse in Norse mythology. Hopefully any humor Waititi injects into the film is well placed.

It has been rumored Natalie Portman will not being reprising her role in the film, which may delight fans who have been hoping for less Earth-centric Thor films. Jaimie Alexander, who plays Lady Sif has also reportedly not been called in for this sequel.
Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters on November 3, 2017. The cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Tessa Thompson, Mark Ruffalo and Cate Blanchet. Filming will begin in June.

Captain America: Civil War, Marvel’s most recent film, is in theater’s now.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl. Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing.

      Emm… what? Did we miss some MCU movies Jake?

        It’s a joke, I say it’s a joke boy!

    Man that’s sad if SIF doesn’t come back for this film. I think she had so much potential that was wasted away in the 1st 2 films.

    • Señor Cardgage

      She probably will, since Natalie Portman won’t be in Ragnarok

      • Wyrus

        Not necessarily, they recently started casting or already casted Thor’s new love interest.

        • Lt. Brannigan

          I fail to see what that has to do with Sif. I don’t remember her being set up as a love interest for Thor. I just remember her as a totally badass warrior.

    • She was also great in a few episodes of Agents of SHIELD. :)
