Tom Hiddleston Says THOR: RAGNAROK Will Feature the Funniest Depiction of Thor Yet
We've heard that Thor: Ragnarok is going to tell one of Marvel's darkest stories yet, but that doesn't mean we aren't going to get some fun comedy out of it! After all, the movie is being directed by Taika Waititi, who is a hilarious!
Well, it seems that humor has definitely rubbed off on Chris Hemsworth's Thor. According to Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in the film, Thor: Ragnarok will feature the funniest depiction that we've seen of Thor in the MCU yet! He tells Fandango:
"Taika Waititi is such a spirited, hilarious individual, and he and Chris [Hemsworth] became very fast friends, and what was great for me was to see their friendship kind of blossom and they brought out the best in each other and started making stuff up. I can confidently say this will be the funniest depiction of the character of Thor that you've ever seen. I personally have known for almost 10 years that Chris Hemsworth is hilarious. I think this go-round will be his chance."
There's been a lot of Thor humor through the course of the film in the MCU. Marvel and their creative team have always tried to bring a fun element to the character to bring laughs, and it's cool to learn the best and funniest stuff is yet to come. We've gotten a little taste of that new humor thanks to the shorts that have been released involving Thor and his roommate Darryl that you can watch here and here. As soon as I learned Waititi was going to direct this movie, I knew it was going give us something entertaining.
In Marvel Studios’ ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
Thor: Ragnarok arrives in theaters on November 3, 2017.
