Taika Waititi Talks Thor: Ragnarok, Confirms Cameo


2017 certainly looks to be an eclectic year for Marvel Studios, one which will be capped by Thor: Ragnarok, the long awaited third solo outing featuring the titular Asgardian warrior. And from what we’ve recently learned, the film’s director, Taika Waititi, plans on showing us that cameos aren’t reserved only for Stan Lee.

Although we don’t know what his onscreen role will entail, Waititi had this to say in a recent interview with AV Club:

”It’s not like a thing that I’ve ever planned, but now I’m in all of my movies in a small role or a larger role. I’ll probably just keep doing that. It’s like a dumb thing I do now.”

By now, it’s certainly no secret that Thor won’t be the lone Marvel hero showing up in this movie, as it’s set to feature two other characters who didn’t have the fortune of partaking in Captain America: Civil War. Waititi proceeded to elaborate on the difference between his film and the aforementioned 2016 blockbuster:

“Sometimes I would stop and think, I’m doing a movie that’s got Thor and Doctor Strange and The Incredible Hulk and Loki and every character is so strange and different. Civil War it’s just humans, humans with human problems. Ours is creatures and beings and all these sorts of really different characters. Again displaying human problems, but in outer space or in other worlds.”

Although this is blurring the lines between solo and team-up films just as Civil War did, we can only hope that the focus isn’t taken off the titular hero too greatly when Thor: Ragnarok arrives in theaters on November 3.
