Taika Waititi Shares a Behind-the-Scenes Video as ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Wraps
Thor: Ragnarok will take us back to Asgard to show us what our favorite God of Thunder and his large green buddy have been up to since Age of Ultron, and with a director like Taika Waititi, we’re willing to bet this could the funniest Marvel movies ever made. Waititi is one of the most talented directors around (if you haven’t seen What We Do in the Shadows, what have you been doing with your life?) and when we heard he’d be directing a Marvel movie we were extremely hopeful that he’d breathe new life into the Avengers saga. With filming on Ragnarok wrapped, the director shared a Facebook Live video of the last day on set.
In the video, you can see Waititi walk by an enormous pile of detritus that just seems to keep going forever, before sidling up to some of his Australian crew to say “g’day.” Thor: Ragnarok shot on location in Queensland Australia, which you can see behind the garbage pile if you can crane your neck. Waititi also stumbles upon Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who seems to be, at least partly, in her Valkyrie makeup. They say hi to the crew and the rest of the actors, who are all dressed in lots of layers of brown robes, and they take us inside a spaceship, which looks like it crash-landed in the middle of the lake.
If Waititi gets his way, this is going to be an extremely fun movie, and it’s clear that everyone on set had an extremely fun time. Thor: Ragnarok also stars Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Karl Urban, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill, and will hit theaters November 3, 2017.
