Taika Waititi Plans To Shake Things Up With A ‘Fresher Style Of Humor’ In ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Over the weekend, director Taika Waititi promoted his latest film, Hunt For The Wilderpeople, at the Sundance Film Festival. And of course, with this came some questions about his next project, the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. Speaking with CNet, the filmmaker discussed the Marvel threequel and how humor will fit into the film. 

My strength in this is bringing my style of humor, which is probably a very different style of humor. They’ve had good jokes in them before, but I think where I come from is maybe a fresher style. It could just shake the entire thing up a bit.

When tasked about joining the Marvel Studios family, Waititi discussed his excitement and collaborative process behind the film. There’s been numerous rumors about the studio controlling productions but according to the director, that’s definitely not the case here.

I’m like the new kid in class! They’re really cool people. I’ve already made some great friends, and everyone wants to make the best story possible. [The development process is] very collaborative, more collaborative than I think people probably expect. It’s not just one person ordering everyone around. It’s people discussing and saying, ‘What if it was like this’ or ‘I don’t think it should be like that’, which is very healthy. And it’s actually what I’m used to, coming from theatre and co-ops and collaborating.

Finally, when asked if he could give any hints about the film’s plot, Waititi had to decline “because I don’t even know. We’re still figuring out what characters are in it and how they all interact. We’re very early on in prep, storylining, figuring it all out” You can check out more from Waititi on the upcoming Marvel threequel here. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
