Thor: Ragnarok has been filming at the Village Roadshow Studios in Australia for about two weeks now, but we’ve already heard plenty of things about the movie from its director, Taika Waititi. Speaking with Polygon to promote his latest film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Waititi discussed working on the project for Marvel Studios:
“I feel like a guest in Marvel’s universe but with the creative freedom to do what I want.”
Mark Ruffalo has previously described the movie as an intergalactic buddy road comedy, but the director says that the plot may change during the production process:
“It’s hard to say what the movie is because it’s changing. The plot has changed and the script has changed. There are buddy elements to it between Thor and the Hulk, but who knows what the final movie will look like.”
The director then went on to talk about how important it is for his actors to have chemistry on set and how Ragnarok will be one of the most unique Marvel projects yet:
“If my actors aren’t having a good time on set, then I’m doing something wrong. There needs to be a chemistry between characters on screen, and that comes from having chemistry on set. We are making movies. We should be having a lot of fun. I think this is the most different Marvel movie to date and one of the biggest.”
Starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Karl Urban as Skurge, Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters on November 3, 2017.
