Thor: Ragnarok is taking the world by storm. It’s not that big of a surprise. Not only is it easily the best Thor movie, it’s definitely one of the best films to come out of the MCU.
While we got some fun surprise cameos, epic battles, bright colors, and a just a great ride of a story, some things were cut. It’s sad but true.
One of those things? A flashback scene featuring teenage Thor and Loki.
I know! I was disappointed to hear that, too!
In an interview with Josh Horowitz on his Happy Sad Confused podcast, Taika Waititi talked about a John Hughes-esque scene originally in the film.
“Well I wanted this little thing, and maybe if we ever do a Thor 4 we can have it, but I wanted to do some flashbacks where Thor was a kid, a fat little kid. There was like an 80s version of Asgard where everyone had massive shoulder pads, and everyone had mullets (laughs). Our idea was Thor and Valkyrie meet and he’s like, ‘Hey I know you,’ and she’s like ‘Ha I remember you,’ and then it cuts back to this thing and he’s just this pudgy little kid walking around with a mullet and being picked on by other kids. And Loki’s like this little emo goth hanging out by himself. He was like the kid in Harry Potter, [Malfoy].”
While it sounds epic and in line with the film’s meta-humor tone, I have to admit that it does sound a little over the top. Especially since Valkyrie is older than Thor.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want to see a storyboarded sequence though.
Who knows? Maybe Thor 4 will happen and we’ll get a flashback scene of some sort.
