Thor: Ragnarok Director Teases Funnier Thor Movie


While promoting his new film Hunt for the Wilderpeople at the Sundance Film Festival, director Taika Waititi teased more humor for Thor: Ragnarok, which he'll begin filming in Australia in June.

"I’ll take the second film [Thor: The Dark World] and just add some jokes to that," Waititi told Jeff Sneider of The Wrap. When The Hollywood Reporter caught up with him, Waititi said the indie approach he's bringing to Thor 3 will include shaking "the camera a lot" and "carrot sticks instead of real food."

Listen to Waititi's comments in the videos below.

Thor: Ragnarok will star Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk). It'll be directed by What We Do In The Shadows' Taika Waititi, based on a script by Christopher Yost, Craig Kyle and Stephany Folsom.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released on November 3, 2017.

  1. The movie about the death of the gods is going to be funnier... Interesting

  2. This has to be a joke (no pun intended at all)! This movie should be the least funny, with the stakes involved

    please dont make it sucks like incredible hulk

  3. The guy is obviously joking

  4. Sure hope this isn't the case. I had heard rumors way early on that this one was going to take a more serious approach than the second one. I guess we'll see but it seems like it should be taken a bit more seriously.
