Thor Ragnarok Tom Hiddleston Interview

Director Taika Waititi has already shown us that Thor: Ragnarok won’t be your average Thor movie. Not only has the comedy been ramped up, but the filmmaker wanted to strip down the Thor franchise, essentially acting as if this were the first film in the series. But even so, it wouldn’t be a Thor movie without a certain mischievous character.

Tom Hiddleston plays Loki, the god of mischief and step-brother to the god of thunder, and at the end of Thor: The Dark World, the villain of The Avengers got everything he was hoping for. So what happens next? Tom Hiddleston revealed as much as he could about where Loki is heading next in Thor: Ragnarok in our interview with the actor on set last fall. During our chat, he talked about working with Cate Blanchett, being a rock star movie villain, and much more.

Thor Ragnarok Chris Hemsworth Inteview

In September of 2016, /Film was invited to visit the set of Thor: Ragnarok. We already dove into everything we learned during our time on the Australian set, but we also got to spend time talking to franchise star Chris Hemsworth about various aspects of the sequel.

As soon as Chris Hemsworth walked into the room, he noticed my Ghostbusters shirt (which wasn’t intentionally worn for this day), prompting him to immediately, playfully ask, “Are we friends or no?” That’s the kind of fearless charisma and personality this guy has. In our full interview, Chris Hemsworth talks about Thor’s journey in this movie, having fun with Benedict Cumberbatch on set, dealing with criticism and more.

Thor Ragnarok BTS - Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth

When we sat down to talk with Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi on the set of the Marvel Studios sequel in Brisbane, Australia in September of 2016, one of the first things he playfully said while holding a prop weapon from the movie was “I liken the filmmaking process to going into battle.”

If that’s the case, Taika Waititi must be one cool customer in the face of danger, and he’s not beyond dressing snappily while he’s in battle either. I joined a group of reporters to chat with the filmmaker in between takes during a climactic scene from Thor: Ragnarok (don’t worry, we don’t spoil that in the interview), and we asked him about his approach to Thor, striking a balance between his own style and the mandates of a corporate-owned movies studio, improvising with the actors, learning lessons from superhero movies, and much more.
