We recently learned that Thor: Ragnarok will begin filming on July 4th at the Village Roadshow Studios in Australia and now the Gold Coast Bulletin has revealed the first images from the set of the movie. It looks like a number of outdoor sets are currently being built for some of the scenes which will be set in Asgard (the rest will obviously be added with CGI), but the site reveals that several spaceships are also being constructed.
The Gold Coast Bulletin also had a chance to speak with director Taika Waititi, who had the following to say about collaborating with Marvel Studios and the rest of the team behind the highly anticipated movie over the past few months:
“I’ve been hanging out with Chris and I’ve been working on the script with the writer, designing swords and things and looking at pieces of armour. I am an outside choice for Thor for sure – even I see that – but that’s what’s good about Marvel, what’s great about it. They’re able to do that and it’s paid off for them – getting people who aren’t the natural choice. You see it again and again, so I’m very comfortable in the role. I’m weirdly relaxed.”
You can check out a couple of images from the set of Thor: Ragnarok at the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Sir Anthony Hopkins and newcomers Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters on November 3, 2017. Are you excited?
