‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Trailer Features ‘Hunt For The Wilderpeople’ Easter Egg

The first official trailer for 'Thor: Ragnarok' features an easter egg making reference to director Taika Waititi's last film 'Hunt For The Wilderpeople'.

The first official trailer for Thor: Ragnarok was released earlier today and offered fans their first look at some of the new characters and stories that will be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While fans have been analyzing the footage for clues and hints about the film, ComicBook.com has spotted an Easter egg making reference to director Taika Waititi’s previous film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

The Easter egg is featured during the scene where Thor attempts to stop Hela with his hammer, only for the new villain to destroy his trusty weapon. As Thor reacts, fans can spot graffiti spray-painted on the wall behind him that reads, “Skux Life.”

This is a reference to Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘s lead character Ricky Baker, who utters the line “I didn’t choose the Skux life, the Skux life chose me” in the film.


In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok“, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladictorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson,  Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released in theaters on November 3, 2017.
