Marvel Wanted To Do Something New With ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a well-oiled machine as it churns out two to three films a year, but are not very deep and could be considered cookie-cutter. Apparently, Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige took all those ‘cookie-cutter’ comments personal and wanted do things differently with ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’

“I think we all really wanted to break all the rules with this movie but still, follow the tradition. (…) I know Chris wanted to do something new. I wanted to do something new. He wanted something new. Marvel wanted to do something new, so we did it. I think it’s a really fun movie for this moment in time,” said Mark Ruffalo at the ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ world premiere.

The film has a different tone, color pallet, and sound; and that is all credit to filmmaker Taika Waititi. Feige made a great decision having Waititi direct the third film. Every MCU fans can feel the fresh air.

Waititi dances to a different beat but has an excellent understanding of cinema. The MCU too a fault is overloaded with jokes; this might be the first time they have a comedic genius mapping out the appropriate time to use them.
