Chris Hemsworth Says THOR: RAGNAROK Should Have GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY-Style Humor
Chris Hemsworth is currently out promoting his new film project In The Heart of the Sea, which looks like it could be incredible. During an interview with CinemaBlend, the actor briefly discussed what he would like to see in the upcoming third Thor solo film, Thor: Ragnarok.
We already know that Mark Ruffalo's Hulk will be a part of the story, and that means there could be room for some fun humor between Thor and the giant green goliath. More humor is something that Hemsworth wants to see in the film, In fact, he would like to see some of that Guardians of the Galaxy-style humor!
"I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians [Of The Galaxy]. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know?"
There been some great humor interjected into these Thor films already, but I understand what he's trying to say. With Taika Waititi set to direct the film, I think we'll see one of the most humorous Thor films that's been made yet. At the same time, it could also be the darkest because the subject matter and intensity of the story. It was previously reported that one of the reasons Waititi was hired to direct the film was to help bring it more humor. Hemsworth goes on to talk about what the director will bring to the film:
"I feel we had less of the sort of the naivety or fun or humor that the first [Thor] might have had. I wish we had more of that in the second [movie] … We’ve done regal. We’ve done Shakespeare, and we’ve shown that. I think now it’s time to go, 'Ok, cool. Let’s try something different,' and Taika just had such a brilliant sort of take and funny kind of ideas about where we could [go], how we could do that."
What do you think about seeing a more comedic undertone in Thor: Ragnarok? If it fits the context of the story and is tactfully worked into it, I don't see why not. I can see a lot of fun, amusing banter between Thor and Bruce Banner/Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok is set to be released on July 28th, 2017. For more information on the movie, you can check out all of our related posts here.
