Directed by Taika Waititi from a script by Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost and Stephany Folsom and Eric Pearson, Thor: Ragnarok picks up after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

We've heard for awhile now that the cast of Thor: Ragnarok was encounraged to improvise and bring themselves more into their role.

The filmmaker said: "That particular franchise seems really hard". So what is it?' 'It's a superhero thing and it's a six-picture deal.' And we were like, 'That's a lot of films to sign up for.

I mean, it's incumbent upon us as storytellers who are making mass-appeal movies to make mass-appeal movies, and to diversify as much as possible. Through its narrow canon, the tone of Star Wars has always been determinedly self-serious, whereas the Marvel movies, like the decades of comics they sprang from, veer wildly from high drama to low comedy.

Thor: Ragnarok is set for release on November 3.

Recently, the idea of female Thor joining the MCU reignited with fans after Karl Urban said he thought it was about time the heroine got some love on the big screen. They've taken elements of Planet Hulk's storyline (Greg Pak's brilliant comic series, which I highly recommend) and interweaved it with Thor's Ragnarok plotline.
