The “Ragnarok” in Thor: Ragnarok refers to the end of the world as imagined in Norse mythology. The events of Ragnarok were preluded to in The Avengers: Age of Ultron when Thor was fucking off on a vision quest, took a dip in a cavern-based pool (presumably took a dump beforehand) and had a himself a trippy vision quest – in which he sees a nightmarish version of Asgard, where he’s blamed for killing all of his friends and family. But what the hell did he do to lead up to this catastrophe and how the heck is The Hulk involved?
Question no more. The studio has finally revealed an official Thor: Ragnarok synopsis that confirms some of the story details that have been whispered across the net; including some strong ties to Planet Hulk. (more…)
Of the unexpected treats of Marvel Studios‘ panel at San Diego Comic Con was a short mockumentary made by Thor Ragnarok director Taika Waititi that chronicled what the God of Thunder was doing while his superhero buddies were beating on each other in Captain America: Civil War. A lot comedy was mined out of that bit with comedian Daley Pearson as Darryl, Thor’s roommate in what may be the most hilarious odd couple situation since Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, and the people on the internet, who have seen the short since it was made public, agree. But is that the last we’ve seen of Darryl? (more…)
While in some cases no news might be good news, a lot of the time some news is not great news. Fans of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi‘s What We Do In The Shadows were ecstatic when word started making the Internet rounds about a sequel/spinoff that would feature the We’re not Swear-wolves gang of werewolves in their own film. Now Waititi has given another update on the project, but it’s not what most WWDIS fans might want to hear. (more…)
The “Ragnarok” in Thor: Ragnarok refers to the end of the world as imagined in Norse mythology, so naturally this would be an ideal setting to introduce more comedy into the Thor series. It may sound weird, but apparently, that’s Taika Waititi‘s plan in a nutshell for the third movie about Marvel’s God of Thunder. We know from Thor: The Dark World that Loki’s now in charge of Asgard posing as Odin. We know from Avengers: Age of Ultron that there’s some bad stuff going down in Asgard (at least that was the jist of Thor’s fever dream), and we think that we know that Cate Blanchett is playing Hela, Queen of the Underworld in the film. So sure, let the laughs begin. (more…)
A source has reported to TheWrap that director Taika Waititi is in negotiations to direct Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok. This is quite a leap from his role directing Flight of the Conchords! Known mostly for his indie comedies, Waititi must have proved worthy, as he beat out Ruben Fletcher for the job of succeeding directors Kenneth Branagh (Thor) and Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World). As of yet, no Marvel rep has responded to a request for comment. (more…)
