‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Director Wanted ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Character In Movie

Taika Waititi is the brilliant director of movies such as What We Do In The Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and he’s currently in the process of making Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. One of the big benefits of such universe is the possibilities for sharing characters.

The third Thor movie is set to spend a lot of time in the galaxy, flitting between different planets (and possibly realms, too). What other movie in the MCU spends a lot of time around the galaxy? Guardians of the Galaxy, of course.

During an “Ask Me Anything” appearance on Reddit, Waititi was expectedly asked a bunch of questions regarding the upcoming movie. One of the more interesting questions was about characters the director would have liked to got into the movie, to which he replied:

“I would have liked to get John C Reilly’s character in the film but there was no real way to pull it off.”

John C. Reilly doesn’t play one of the Guardians, but rather Rhomann Dey – a member of the Nova Corps on the planet Xandar. Another user on the website then proceeding to ask whether the Corps or the planet will have a presence in the movie, but that was quickly shot down too:

“No, that would make it easy to pull off.”

So unfortunately folks, you shouldn’t expect any crossover from Thor with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Well, not until Avengers: Infinity War anyway.

Thor: Ragnarok hits theatres on November 3, 2017.
