Taika Waititi Says THOR: RAGNAROK Will Be the "Most Different” and “Biggest” Marvel Movie
For all you Marvel fans who were hoping for a very different kind of Thor movie, you’re in luck! Not only will you get a different kind of Thor film, but you’ll be getting a different kind of Marvel film altogether. In fact, director Taika Waititi says it will be the “most different Marvel movie.” During an interview with Polygon, Waititi explains that the plot of the story they set out to tell has changed since they started shooting:
"It's hard to say what the movie is because it's changing. The plot has changed and the script has changed. There are buddy elements to it between Thor and the Hulk, but who knows what the final movie will look like."
I’m curious to know why exactly things have changed since they first started shooting, but I guess that means there's a chance that a lot of the rumors we’ve previously heard could no longer be a part of the film, if they were even true to begin with. The director goes on to say:
"This movie really celebrates that group of misfits who are on the run. There was something exciting about it and I wanted my movie to be exciting and fun. Watching everyone run amok on screen and enjoying themselves is what I wanted to make going into it."
With Waititi at the helm, there’s no doubt it will be a sort of organized madness. Marvel has allowed the director the creative freedom to do what he wants, and it sounds like he’s going to take advantage of that. He explains:
"I feel like a guest in Marvel's universe but with the creative freedom to do what I want. I think this is the most different Marvel movie to date and one of the biggest."
One of the biggest differences I see from the get go is that Thor and The Hulk will be teaming up on a kind of cosmic road trip to save Asgard. There’ have been a lot of rumors about the film, and the one big rumor that I hope is true includes some story elements from Planet Hulk.
The movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, and more. As a fan of Waititi, I’m expecting great things which I’m confident he will deliver.
Thor: Ragnarok touches down on November 3rd, 2017.
