It’s a good time to be a fan of the god of the Thunder.
With Entertainment Weekly featuring the film on their cover this week, we’re getting a lot of information about what to expect from the film. The major question, of course, is about how this will tie into Avengers: Infinity War.
If we’re bringing the Marvel Cosmic and the Marvel Earth truly together, and GotG 2 is not focusing on it, then it must fall to Thor to tie us there a bit.
While Ragnarok will set things up, director Taika Waititi wants to stress that this film will very much be its own entity.
He said: “A lot of what we’re doing with the film is, in a way, kind of dismantling and destroying the old idea and rebuilding it in a new way that’s fresh. Everyone’s got a slightly new take on their characters, so in that way, it feels like [this is] the first Thor.”
From what the images have shown us, I can definitely get that vibe from the film. Thor is without Mjolnir again and separated from his world. He is going up against people that he is more evenly matched with.
Waititi also wants to focus on Chris Hemsworth’s comedic talents.
“He’s so good and underutilized in that department. He’s legitimately one of the funniest things in this film.”
I can see that. Hemsworth does have some really solid comedic timing.
Thor: Ragnarok will hit the big screen in November 2017.
