‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Will Avoid Some Of The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Thor: Ragnarok will ignore much of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to A.V Club.

Director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) participated in a Reddit AMA on Saturday night.

During the chat, Waititi said he “made an effort to ignore the fact that there are other Thor films.”

He also praised Marvel for giving him a lot of creative freedom.

“I think TR [Thor: Ragnarok] will be one of the most adventurous and most ‘out there’ of all the Marvel movies. It’s a crazy movie,” he said.

Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) will have a much bigger role in the film, according to Waititi. He added that audiences can expect to see ‘references” to Doctor Strange, but didn’t elaborate.

Waititi confirmed Ragnarok’s 80s-vibe. The retro-style logo was a clue.

The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Tessa Thompson and Jamie Alexander.

Stephany Folsom wrote the screenplay.

Thor: Ragnarok  hits theaters November 3, 2017.
