During an interview with Cinema Blend to promote his upcoming film In the Heart of the Sea, Chris Hemsworth spoke briefly about his next outing as the God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok, stating that he’d like to see an injection of Guardians of the Galaxy-esque humour into the threequel.
“I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians of the Galaxy. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know? I feel we had less of the sort of the naivety or fun or humor that the first [Thor] might have had. I wish we had more of that in the second [movie] … We’ve done regal. We’ve done Shakespeare, and we’ve shown that. I think now it’s time to go, ‘Ok, cool. Let’s try something different,’ and Taika Waititi just had such a brilliant sort of take and funny kind of ideas about where we could [go], how we could do that.”
Thor: Ragnarok is to be directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and features a cast that so far includes Marvel veterans Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif). The film is set for release on November 3rd 2017.
