Start up the engines on the “intergalactic buddy road movie” from Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo: shooting for Thor: Ragnarok is underway.
Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito wished director Taika Waititi (What We Do in The Shadows), the cast, and crew good luck as production picked up Monday in Australia.
Ant-Man director Peyton Reed, another member of the Marvel director fraternity, sent along fellow good wishes along with a pro tip: “remember: explosions!” Waititi jokingly replied by showing the poor Day 1 attendance.
Thor has been gone a relatively long while in the MCU. Though he appeared in last year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, he did not pop up in May’s Captain America: Civil War — same goes for Ruffalo’s Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok — also starring Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, and Karl Urban — is due Nov. 3, 2017.
