‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Director Taika Watiti: “It Will Be Much Funnier Than The ‘Dark World'”
Thor fans who are waiting for the third installment of the series are in a for a treat when Thor: Ragnarok is released.
Director, Taika Watiti, was recently promoting his film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, at the Sundance Film Festival when he was asked about Thor. Watiti commented that Ragnarok was definitely going to be a much funnier Thor movie, and similar to the first movie.
“I’ll just take the second Thor film and add some jokes to that,” Watiti told The Wrap.
Mark Rufflao, who plays The Hulk, commented that the movie feels like road trip between two buddies.
The third installment will sit well with other Marvel movies that incorporate humor into their films like Iron Man and Spider-Man.
Thor: Ragnarok will also see the return of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, and it’s rumored that Marvel will use the film to introduce audiences to Valkyrie, a female character who becomes a member of the Defenders and a one-time love interest of Thor.
Ragnarok hits theaters July 28, 2017.
