Chris Hemsworth shared an exclusive clip from his upcoming superhero movie, Thor: Ragnarok, on Jimmy Kimmel Live in which Thor talks about losing his hammer to Korg, voiced by Taika Waititi. Check out the clip below.
Thor: Ragnarok isn’t too far away from release. It comes out on October 27th over here in the UK (November 3rd if you’re in the US), and it’s gearing up to be one of Marvel’s very best movies, at least, if the trailers and Jimmy Kimmel himself are anything to go by. Talking of Jimmy Kimmel, Thor himself, Mr Chris Hemsworth, made an appearance on the show last night to promote his upcoming movie. Before he left the couch, he gave Jimmy, his audience and us a sneak peek at Thor: Ragnarok. Check out the exclusive clip below.
This scene is a particularly interesting one because it sets the tone for the whole movie, which is more in line with what we’ve seen from James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies than the previous Thor films.The film’s director, Taika Waititi (who voices the big stone alien, Korg, in this clip) wanted to shake things up a bit and move away from those rather dreary and uninteresting movies. He wanted to create something more upbeat, more spectacular, and most of all, much funnier.
Waititi’s previous films include Boy, What We Do In The Shadows and the wonderful Hunt for the Wilderpeople, which was one of my favourite movies of last year. By bringing the New Zealander onboard, Marvel made a clear statement of intent for what they wanted this Thor movie to be, and it seems as if Chris Hemsworth may have also played a part in this. Hemsworth mentions how he may have swayed the decision to move the film’s shoot to Austraila to a location only 45 minutes away from his house. He was also onboard with Waititi’s vision for Ragnarok from the very beginning.
It really seems as if we’re going to get a very different Thor in this movie and that it’ll be an intergalactic adventure to remember. The film also features Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk and it’s been billed as a buddy comedy space adventure, which sounds perfect to me.
Thor: Ragnarok will be in UK cinemas on October 27th. Are you ready?
