It’s been three years since Thor’s last solo adventure, and it appears that the time of the Norse Gods may be meeting their end in next year’s in Thor: Ragnarok. The original script for the movie was said to be among the darkest stories that Marvel Studios has ever done, and it’s believed that one of the reasons Taika Waititi was chosen to direct the sequel was to bring some levity to it. Judging from Waititi’s latest dispatch, that includes the antics behind-the-scenes.

What? He left toilet paper. And it’s not like Waititi doesn’t have a Hulk to give him a hand. Although, right about now, Vision would probably be more useful to have around.
Still, it’s good to see that Waititi having some fun when the cameras aren’t rolling. This movie will be pairing up Thor with Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk/Bruce Banner as they go on a cosmic road trip and take down the Norse goddess of Death, Hela, as played by Cate Blanchett. Tessa Thompson is making her MCU debut in this film as Valkyrie, with Karl Urban as Skurge the Executioner, and Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster.
Tom Hiddleston will also be back as Loki, the God of Mischief who secretly overthrew Odin (Anthony Hopkins) during Thor: The Dark World and who now rules Asgard disguised as his own adoptive father. This movie will also reunite Loki and the Hulk for the first time since their classic scene in The Avengers, and we’d love to see if Waititi can give us another instantly iconic and hilarious moment with those characters.
Thor: Ragnarok will be released on November 3, 2017.
