    Thor: Ragnarok's "Get Help" Scene Was Improvised

    Thor: Ragnarok is not only the best film in the Thor franchise, it's also the funniest film in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. That's because director Taika Waititi is extremely gifted when it comes to bringing comedy into other genres. Thanks to those skills and the improvisational efforts of Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, we got one of the funniest scenes.

    Tom Hiddleston recently explained that the "Get Help" scene in Thor: Ragnarok was pretty much entirely improvised on the day of shooting. He explained to IMDb's What to Watch:

    "It all came from Taika Waititi's brilliant and inventive imagination. Taika came in in the morning and said, 'It would be really fun if you came into the room and pretended it was a game you used to play as kids.' As we worked it out, it was something completely improvised. It gives you such an insight into the way Taika works."

    Tyrese Gibson Says Morbius is Part of the MCU, May Be Wrong

    Either Tyrese Gibson seems to be talking about things he doesn't fully understand or Sony Pictures is desperately trying to keep a secret. During at interview with, Gibson said the upcoming Morbius movie starring Jared Leto was part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, Sony Pictures followed up not long after to officially deny that claim.

    There have been questions about whether or not the movie takes place in the MCU with Michael Keaton appearing in the trailer as Adrian Toomes from Spider-Man: Homecoming. But with all the multiverse shenanigans that are coming to the MCU, it's possible that Sony's upcoming movies featuring Spider-Man characters could be part of an entirely new universe/timeline. We'll have to wait and see what happens.
