Like Samson in the good ol’ Bible, Chris Hemsworth is sporting a VERY different look for “Thor: Ragnarok,” but unlike the strong man who had his eyes plucked out and suffered greatly before destroying his enemies, Marvel’s Norse God figure hasn’t lost an ounce of his superhuman strength.
Comedy factors in as a big element in the film, too, which we’re highly anticipating given that director Taika Waititi (“Hunt For The Wilderpeople“) has the reins and is quite the funny man. “I think sometimes people mistake a tonal shift as ‘We’re just going to make some ridiculous broad comedy where no one gives a s— what happens and everyone gets stoned and sits around talking about saving the universe,’ ” Waititi told EW this week in a first look from the film. “We want people to care what happens and care that the hero succeeds. I think tonally it’s like a slight shift. I don’t feel nervous — I feel good about it.”
“Thor: Ragnarok” opens on November 3rd.
