Thor Ragnarok Director Played Four Roles In The Movie
Taika Waititi played several other characters in Thor: Ragnarok aside from his scene-stealing turn as Korg The director not only interjected his filmmaking sensibilities to the latest Marvel movie but also himself literally in several forms as he reveals that he did a few more motion-capture roles in the project.
The God of Thunder’s third go at a standalone film is continuously raking in ticket sales all over the globe After exceeding expectations with a $121 milliong opening weekend the threequel is expected to once again top the box office for the second week indicating that more and more people are either up for a repeat showing or are intrigued by the great reviews that the Marvel project has been receiving.
Much of this renewed interest in the Chris Hems worth-led Marvel sub-franchise is credited on Waititi’s bold vision to reinvigorate the film series It is no secret that Thor’s standalone saga has not performed on the same level as Iron Man’s or Captain America’s.
That is until Ragnarok came along with its psychedelic visuals and witty humour — something that a lot of fans can get behind
Thor Ragnarok Cut Callback To The Avengers
As part of the continued press coverage for Ragnarok Empire Online spoke with Waititi and the director shared a couple of set and production secrets one includes him playing other characters on top of the now fan-favorite Korg.
I am one of the heads on the three-headed alien this character called Haju this may not be correct spelling he shared I’m the head on the right And I’m also the motion-capture for Surtur However while he did mo-cap for the fire demon who fulfilled the prophecy of Asgard’s end.
it was American actor Clancy Brown that provided its voice. Additionally he also played a stand-in for The Hulk for some pick-up scenes after Mark Ruffalo wrapped production.
Thor Ragnarok Hulk vs Surtur
While we don’t know where Haju is (we presume he is in that Asgardian ship traveling to Earth), when Surtur’s coming back into the fold, and when Ruffalo won’t be available to do Hulk, Korg is enough character for Waititi to stick around longer in the Marvel wheelhouse even though he won’t be helming any movie from the franchise anytime soon and frankly, we don’t think anyone is complaining. The rock character has quickly gained traction – something that Marvel Studios didn’t miss – that is why plans for him and his buddy Miek to return in future MCU projects has already been set up.
This Is What Ragnarok Means To The Wider Marvel Cinematic Universe
On the set of Thor Ragnarok producer Brad Winterbaum went on record comparing the third Thor movie to 2014’s Captain America The Winter Soldier.
Much like Winter Soldier took a lot of ideas off the playing field to make it harder on the Avengers in Ultron Ragnarok is a similar thing said Winterbaum.
The whole cosmic world of the MCU was you had Thanos and you had Chitauri and you have threats from above coming.
But you also have Asgard, you also have these protective forces out there too. we make it much harder for those protections to come help our heroes as we enter Avengers 3
