“Thor: Ragnarok” is stuffed with a Hela lot of surprises.
Yeah, the twist that Cate Blanchett’s character, Hela, was Thor’s sister acquired out earlier than the film premiered on Friday, and Mark Ruffalo unintentionally live-streamed the film at an early screening, however lots of the movie’s secrets and techniques stay intact, together with some main cameos.
Warning: “Thor: Ragnarok” spoilers beneath!
After Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will get again to Asgard, the place Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has been ruling in an Odin (Anthony Hopkins) disguise after secretly exiling the actual Odin, Thor witnesses a play honoring Loki’s “death,” which occurred in “Thor: The Dark World.” (Don’t fear. The dude wasn’t actually useless.)
In the play scenes, Thor is performed by Luke Hemsworth, Chris’ older brother; Odin is performed by Dr. Grant himself, Sam Neill; and Loki is performed by Matt Damon carrying a ridiculous Loki wig.
Director Taika Waititi informed HuffPost the Damon cameo actually occurred as a result of he’s good pals with Chris.
“It was like an homage to the previous films but also being a bit more irreverent, being able to poke fun at ourselves,” he stated in reference to the play scene. “Chris is very good at that. He has great self-deprecating humor.”
The director stated the play was deliberate as an in-joke for everybody who noticed “Thor: The Dark World,” including, “We shot everything the same size and the same angle and we basically copied the entire death scene from that movie.”
For those that haven’t seen the earlier “Thor” movie, Waititi says it’s nonetheless an “interesting piece of story” that helps arrange Loki’s storyline.
As far as the opposite surprises within the film, you need to in all probability simply see them for your self. Marvel has gone to nice lengths to maintain them quiet. Even the trailers had been digitally altered from the ultimate movie to cover plot factors.
“When we came out with our first trailer, there were a few stories in we weren’t sure if we wanted in the film or not,” stated Waititi. The director stated they only “wanted to make a cool trailer,” however promotion “shouldn’t necessarily be just showing shots from the finished movie.”
Get prepared for some moments that’ll Ragna-rock your world.
“Thor: Ragnarok” is in theaters now.
