Thor: Ragnarok director will step in front of the camera for the upcoming Marvel movie. Fans of Waititi will know that he has a fondness for appearing in his movies, he had a starring role in his movie What We Do In The Shadows and had a small but memorable scene in his latest movie, Hunt For The Wilderpeople.
See what Waititi said when he sat down for an interview with The A.V. Club:
“It’s not like a thing that I’ve ever planned, but now I’m in all of my movies in a small role or a larger role, I’ll probably just keep doing that. It’s like a dumb thing I do now.”
Thor: Ragnarok is the biggest directorial attempt by Waititi who aims to bring more intergalactic fun to the god of thunder: “I think the overall sense that I’m trying to give to the audience and what I want the audience to leave the cinema carrying with them is a sense of joy really,” he explained.
Waititi is in the earliest stages of post-production on Thor: Rangarok. The film will see Thor (Chris Hemsworth) team-up with fellow superheroes, Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and newbie Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to battle new forces of evil played by Cate Blanchett. Waititi also discussed the crazy aspects of making a Thor movie for marvel and even compared it to Captain America: Civil War:
“Sometimes I would stop and think, I’m doing a movie that’s got Thor and Doctor Strange and The Incredible Hulk and Loki and every character is so strange and different,” he said. “Civil War it’s just humans, humans with human problems. Ours is creatures and beings and all these sorts of really different characters. Again displaying human problems, but in outer space or in other worlds.”
Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Sam Neill, Anthony Hopkins, Jeff Goldblum, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
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 gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
