Marvel sneak peek for invited journalists includes previously unseen footage from two of the films, and concept art from the other
The first 'Thor: Ragnarok' trailer features a ton of references to the comics, secret cameos, and even a nod to Taiki Waititi's 'Hunt For The Wilderpeople'.
Marvel Studios have long made a habit of hiring directors you wouldn’t automatically think of for major action and SFX-driven blockbusters, and their selection for the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is no exception. Not unlike the Russo Brothers (directors of the last two ‘Captain America’ movies, currently at work on ‘Avengers: Infinity War’), New Zealand actor, writer and director Taika Waititi has, up until now, worked almost exclusively in small-scale comedy, a style utilised in his two ‘Team Thor’ short films included on recent Marvel Blu-ray releases (check the latest one out on the ‘Doctor Strange’ disc, it’s hilarious).
Taika Waititi is nothing if not unpredictable. After making his name directing indie comedies ‘Eagle Vs Shark,’ ‘Boy,’ ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ and most recently ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople,’ the New Zealand actor, writer and director is breaking through to the big leagues this year with Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ – and it seems his next feature will be equally unexpected. Screen Daily reports that Waititi has signed on to ‘Bubbles,’ a stop-motion animated movie based on the life of Michael Jackson’s pet chimpanzee, who lived closely with the late pop legend from 1988 until 2004 – throughout the most troubled, controversial period of Jackson’s life.
An impromptu Facebook Live broadcast from the set of Thor: Ragnarok didn’t answer many questions about the third standalone film for Marvel’s Asgardian Avenger, but there were a couple of unexpected teases dropped along the way.
