Thor: Ragnarok - Fans Mad There May Be Humor? Seriously?

22 February 2017 2:00 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

I just discovered a few interesting tweets on Taika Waititi's (director of upcoming Thor film) twitter (@TaikaWaititi), where some people are b**ching that, god forbid, Thor: Ragnarok may have some humor involved in it. One fan expressed as much Waititi himself.

@TaikaWaititi Taika, how do you feel knowing that there are angry people by Thor Ragnarok adapting a more comic tone?

— Alvaro S. (@alvarof616) February 21, 2017

Surprisingly enough, Waititi saw the tweet, and even went so far as to respond in a hilarious way:

Sounds like they need to laugh. https://t.co/fCB5AwQoDA

Thor: Ragnarok director responds to concerns over the film’s comedic tone

22 February 2017 12:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The director of upcoming Marvel sequel Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi, has weighed in on any fan concerns regarding the film’s recently revealed comedic tone.

You can never please everyone, and those that try and are destined to fail. It seems director of the latest Thor movie Taika Waititi understands this when responding on Twitter to the concerns of a fan, who brought up their reservations over the supposedly heavy comedic tone of Thor’s third solo outing.

Waititi responded by saying “Sounds like some people need to laugh”, and didn’t seem to be in the mood to offer reassurances of any kind. Take a look at the exchange here…

Sounds like they need to laugh. https://t.co/fCB5AwQoDA

Tom Hiddleston discusses Loki's relationship with Doctor Strange and Hela

22 February 2017 10:44 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The third film in the series of "stand-alone" Thor movies will feature as much of an ensemble cast as most of the Marvel films that preceded it, including the likes of Chris Hemsworth as the titular character, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Tom Hiddleston as Loki an even Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange. In a recent interview with IGN, Hiddleston was kind enough to share what his relationship... Read More »

Tom Hiddleston says Loki would “probably dismiss Doctor Strange” and his magic

22 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Hiddleston recently spoke to IGN as part of the Kong: Skull Island promotional campaign, but naturally he was fielded questions regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Specifically, Hiddleston was asked how Loki would react to Doctor Strange and Hela, to which Hiddleston replied:

“I think he probably dismisses Strange. Yes, his sorcery is very impressive, but Loki’s been doing that for centuries so who cares. Hela is a different beast and full of surprises and actually might have been someone with whom at one time he could’ve gotten along, but the circumstances have changed.”

We may find out just how Loki reacts to Doctor Strange later this year, as both Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch are set to feature in Thor: Ragnarok.

Tom Hiddleston says Thor: Ragnarok features the funniest depiction of Thor we’ve seen

21 February 2017 5:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whenever Taika Waititi is asked about his upcoming entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: Ragnarok, he usually goes on record saying that the blockbuster will also feature his unique flavor of comedy previously seen in critical hits such as What We Do In The Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

Falling in line with these statements is a video posted by Fandango where Tom Hiddleston is at a press event promoting the upcoming March blockbuster Kong: Skull Island. He talks about the tone of the Marvel threequel, stating the following:

“At the end of The Dark World, Loki is on the throne. At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a few questions, Loki is endearingly enigmatic about providing answers. Taika Waititi is such a spirited, hilarious individual, and he and Chris Hemsworth became very fast friends. What was great for me to see was to see their friendship kind of blossom, »

Tom Hiddleston Says Thor: Ragnarok Delivers The “Funniest Thor”

21 February 2017 4:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thor: Ragnarok was always going to be highly anticipated, by virtue of it being both a Marvel movie, and an important stepping stone toward Avengers: Infinity War. However, for those that have been paying attention, this particular franchise entry is especially exciting, because it boasts a big-budget collaboration between Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi. These two artists have a very specific, very funny sense of humour, which has led to predictions of a unique vein of comedy being introduced into the Thor film series. This has now been confirmed by Tom Hiddleston – also known as Loki – while in conversation with Fandango, promoting his upcoming film, Kong: Skull Island.

“At the end of The Dark World, Loki is on the throne. At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a few questions, Loki is endearingly enigmatic about providing answers. Taika Waititi is such a spirited, hilarious individual, and he and Chris [Hemsworth] became very fast friends. »

Thor Ragnarok: The Director Gives A Tease, But Is Hela Really Ragnarok?

16 February 2017 10:45 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Many hardcore Marvel fans did not like Thor: Darkworld, and while it did have it's moments, it was definitely a subpar film. So when I heard that Thor: Ragnarok may be based on Planet Hulk, I completely flipped out. In the books, sometime around the Skrull War, Hulk was stranded on a gladiator type planet and became more of an intellectual force of nature as opposed to the typical lower intelligence Hulk (with the exception of the Grey Hulk) we have always known. I had to wonder just how they would handle the duo of Thor and Hulk in space. Would this be just another dull Thor flop?

Executive producer Brad Winderbaum thinks not.

"It's going to have some of the wildest, craziest, most amazing action you've ever seen in the McU, the Thor / Hulk relationship is one that is incredible."

Behind-The-Scenes Photos For Thor: Ragnarok Showcase The Norse God In Action

See Full Gallery Here

Capping off a busy day for the Marvel camp, a series of behind-the-scenes pictures for Thor: Ragnarok have now surfaced online showcasing all-new aliens, otherworldly sets, and Chris Hemsworth leaping into action as the eponymous Norse God.

Directed by Taika Waititi (Hunt For the Wilderpeople), Ragnarok is the third and final Marvel movie on course to release in 2017 – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming being the first two – and it’ll herald the hotly-anticipated reunion of Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk. But if Joss Whedon’s Avengers toyed with the idea of pitting the allies against one another all those years ago, by tapping into Greg Pak’s beloved Planet Hulk comic book, Thor: Ragnarok will take that bubbling rivalry and thrusting it smack bang in the middle of Sakaar’s gladiatorial arena. You’ll even get an early glimpse of that »

Marvel fans were delighted at the end of last week when Marvel Studios decided to pull down the veil of secrecy and release a behind-the-scenes video for Avengers: Infinity War. Fans got to see Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) hanging out together, which was pretty cool.

Just in case you were worried, Stephen McFeely doesn't really give any spoilers, but just merely gives an idea of what Thanos is ultimately trying to accomplish in vague terms. The reveal comes courtesy of the Doctor Strange Blu-ray/DVD release, as reported by Screen Rant. Here is what McFeely had to say about Thanos' plan in Avengers 3.

The Asgardian Avenger, played by an ab-bearing Chris Hemsworth, still doesn’t have a job, which puts a strain on the roommate relationship when bills come a knockin’ — and Asgardian tender doesn’t count, even if each coin is worth “a gazillion human dollars,” as Thor claims.
