Production on Thor: Ragnarok is well underway, and as we saw yesterday thanks to photos from director Taika Waititi and star Chris Hemsworth, right now shooting is taking place outdoor with parts of Brisbane, Australia doubling as New York City. Photos from the set yesterday revealed Thor (Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) had returned to Earth, but we didn’t know what they were doing besides looking devilishly handsome. Thanks to some new set photos, we may have an answer.

Thor: Ragnarok has been shooting in Australia for several weeks now, and while we’ve got a while to go before we see the movie itself, director Taika Waititi and his stars have been pretty generous about sharing glimpses of the shoot. Today, a couple of new photos tease Thor’s return to Earth… and possibly an encounter with the next new Marvel superhero, Doctor Strange. Read More »

Tom Hiddleston has had a very busy summer, wowing critics with The Night Manager, winning over Hall H for Kong: Skull Island, and, in his rare free time, wooing Taylor Swift. Now he’s capping off this crazy season with a return to one of his signature roles. Hiddleston shared a photo of himself in character as Loki for Thor: Ragnarok, which is shooting now under director Taika Waititi. Read More »
The entire Marvel Studios panel from Comic-Con was a real treat for fans who waited in line overnight to get a taste of what the future holds for their favorite comic book heroes. But one of the highlights was undoubtedly the panel for Thor: Ragnarok. Since there wasn’t much footage to be glimpsed as the production had only been up and running for a week or two, director Taika Waititi put together a little mockumentary with Thor living in an average apartment with some random dude. It was hilarious, and you can get our whole recap of what was show in our coverage from the Marvel Comic-Con panel right here.
Thankfully, after that hilarious short, fans were treated to a bunch of behind the scenes footage, concept art and animatics teasing what’s to come in the third installment of Thor’s franchise. One of the more intriguing parts was a shot of Thor on a blue screen soundstage with warpaint on his face and an extremely short haircut. Now we get a look at Chris Hemsworth with his short new do in a couple Thor Ragnarok set photos posted to Instagram by co-star Mark Ruffalo. Check them out below. Read More »

Marvel Studios put on a great show in Comic-Con’s Hall H last weekend, sharing new footage from Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Spider-Man: Homecoming, and trotting out the exceptionally talented cast of Black Panther. But they didn’t have a ton to show from Thor: Ragnarok, for the very simple reason that the film had only started shooting a few weeks earlier. Instead, the cast and crew sent over a mockumentary short revealing just what Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor was up to during the events of Captain America: Civil War.
The video likely won’t be released with Thor: Ragnarok itself; it seems more likely to pop up down the line as a Blu-ray bonus feature or something like that. To tide you over in the meantime, though, Taika Waititi has shared a little glimpse at the short, and it suggests Thor is just as frustrated and confused by Thanos’ extremely slow progress as the rest of us are. Oh, and if you’re not here for jokes, there’s also a less goofy behind-the-scenes peek at Valkyrie’s sword. Read More »

Marvel Studios closed out the Comic-Con shenanigans of Hall H with a bang as they always do. One of the many Marvel movies that were teased during the panel was Thor: Ragnarok, which is currently in production in Australia.
The film has only been shooting for a few weeks, but more often than not, Marvel likes to schedule their shoots so they’ll have footage prepared to unveil for the Comic-Con audiences. It happened with Captain America: The First Avenger, Guardians of the Galaxy and now Thor: Ragnarok. We already got a tease of Hulk’s gladiator armor that the big guy will wear in the movie, but what else was revealed here in San Diego?

Much of America took off yesterday to gorge on hot dogs and marvel at fireworks in celebration of our independence from the Brits. But over down under in Australia, July 4 was just another work day.

Note: With Hunt for the Wilderpeople in limited release this weekend, we’re re-running our review from the Sundance Film Festival.
Taika Waititi had a minor breakthrough last year with What We Do in the Shadows, and is about to have a much bigger one with Thor: Ragnarok, but in between he’s managed to squeeze in the delightful Hunt for the Wilderpeople. A sort of live-action Up with dashes of Roald Dahl, Wes Anderson, and Thelma & Louise, all filtered through Waititi’s own warm, offbeat sense of humor, Wilderpeople looks destined to become a new childhood classic.

Taika Waititi co-wrote, co-produced, and co-directed one of our favorite films of last year, What We Do in the Shadows. While promoting his latest film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople — which is about as delightful as the vampire mockumentary — he discussed plans for a sequel to Shadows. The proposed sequel wouldn’t center on Viago (Waititi), Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) or the bad boy of the group, Deacon (Jonny Brugh); instead, it’ll focus on their adversaries–the werewolves.
Below, Taika Waititi discusses the plot of the What We Do in the Shadows sequel, which is titled We’re Wolves, and when we might see the film.
