Thor Ragnarok Deleted Scene

Thor: Ragnarok is in theaters now, and it will have no problem taking the top spot at the box office. With director Taika Waititi behind the camera, the franchise steered hard into comedic territory, even more than audiences have come to expect from the Marvel Studios superhero movies. But Thor: Ragnarok almost headed into John Hughes territory with a sequence that ended up getting axed.

In a recent interview, Taika Waititi revealed that Thor: Ragnarok almost included a flashback to an adolescent Thor and Loki in a 1980s-style version of Asgard. That sounds awesome in itself, but at this time, we would have also seen Thor as a chubby little kid and Loki as an emo outcast. Find out more about the Thor: Ragnarok deleted scene below, but beware of a minor spoiler for the movie. Read More »
