“Thor: Ragnarok” will have a tone very different from that of previous Marvel movies. This, lead star Chris Hemsworth recently revealed.
According to ComicBook.com, fans might see “a very different Thor” in his next movie. “Man, it is a lot of fun,” Hemsworth said. “I think tonally it’s a big shift in a great way, more than anything we’ve seen before.” The actor attributed the changes to their director, Taika Waititi. “He is just an incredible sort of comedic talent… a lot of heart in everything he does,” he said. Given Waititi’s background, could the next installment of “Thor” be a comedy? Hemsworth refused to say anything more on the matter. “It’s fun you know… but that’s me skirting around the issue because I can’t say too much,” the actor explained.
Meanwhile, Screen Rant reported that Loki and Hulk might just figure in a scuffle in “Thor: Ragnarok.” Tom Hiddleston, the actor who plays Loki, himself hinted this possible confrontation. “The last time Loki and Hulk were in the same room didn’t go very well for Loki. So, he’s got a few chips on his shoulder, but…it’s fun, you’ll see,” the actor teased.
Hiddleston also said the next “Thor” movie will be “fun” even though their characters have aged a bit. “There is all sorts of interesting things,” he explained. “I’m four years older and Chris is four years older… and there will just be new things we find in it.” But this does not mean Loki will stop being the “exciting” trickster fans have grown to expect him to be based on previous films. “He is always a trickster,” the actor said. “It is trying to find new ways for him to be mischievous, because I love doing that.”
“Thor: Ragnarok” is set to hit the big screen on October 25, 2017.
