A couple of weeks ago, director Taika Waititi suggested that up to a whopping 80% of Thor: Ragnarok is improvisation, and now Chris Hemsworth has revealed that one of – if not the – most memorable moments from the first trailer falls into that category, and it seems we have a child from the Make-A-Wish Foundation to thank.
“We had a young kid, a Make-A-Wish kid on set that day,” revealed Hemsworth, discussing the scene where The Incredible Hulk makes his grand entrance into the arena to square off against the God of Thunder. “He goes, ‘You know, you should say, “He’s a friend from work!”‘”
Hopefully the witty youngster is getting some good commission from all those T-shirts…
In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and features Marvel veterans Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk alongside Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Skurge, Taika Waititi as Korg, Clancy Brown as Surtur and Sam Neill and Rachel House in as-yet-unrevealed roles. It is set for release on October 27th in the UK and November 3rd in the States.
