The third part of Thor's trilogy in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will wrap filming in just two more days. This keeps the film on pace for its November 2017 release date as it will need a significant amount of time for CGI and special effects.
Director Taika Waititi is making his debut in the world of blockbuster films, and has brought fresh life into a Thor franchise that many fans felt was dead in the water. By bringing in his big personality, and dry sense of humor, Waititi has found a way for the entire project to seem like a party.
If you follow the director on Twitter, you've noticed his jokes aimed at super hero movies, and the Marvel Universe, since he took on the project. One of his first jokes was calling out two other Marvel directors, Peyton Reed and James Gunn, asking how many explosions were required for his film to be released.
Waititi took the gags a step further by filming a humorous mock-umentary explaining where Thor had been during Captain America: Civil War. Instead of fighting with the other Avengers, Thor rented a flat with a regular guy named Daryl, and has tried leading a normal life.
Taika's latest troll was a farewell to Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, the two stars of the film. On hiw Twitter account, the director posted a picture of himself between the two set chairs with the names of the characters Thor and Loki. With a smirk on his face, Waititi gives both empty chairs a big middle finger.
The photo is captioned: "Two days left. Gonna miss this pair of idiots." Take a look!
Some may think that this is Taika Waititi's way of showing his disdain for the actors, but that just isn't the case. Waititi is known for having great relationships with his actors, as well as taking jokes a little further than most others would.
This just seems to be the director's way of giving his stars a fond farewell. After a long shoot, that looked like a ton of fun, what other way would Taika say goodbye than with a flip of the bird.
