Chris Hemsworth hopes that Thor: Ragnarok will include a lot more humor

11.24.2015

I'm sure that the THOR films definitely have their fair share of fans, but personally, I find them to be the weakest entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I still enjoy them for what they are, but I can't help but feel that they could be so much better. Thankfully, everything we've heard about THOR: RAGNAROK so far has me feeling much more excited than I ever was for either of the first two films. As production on THOR: RAGNAROK isn't expected to get underway until the summer of 2016, there's much we still don't know about the film, but Chris Hemsworth spoke with CinemaBlend and revealed his hope that THOR: RAGNAROK will include some GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY style humour.

I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians [Of The Galaxy]. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know?

Taika Waititi, director of WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, will be helming THOR: RAGNAROK and Chris Hemsworth seems quite excited by what Waititi will be bringing to the table.

I feel we had less of the sort of the naivety or fun or humor that the first [Thor] might have had. I wish we had more of that in the second [movie] … We’ve done regal. We’ve done Shakespeare, and we’ve shown that. I think now it’s time to go, 'Ok, cool. Let’s try something different,' and Taika just had such a brilliant sort of take and funny kind of ideas about where we could [go], how we could do that.

THOR: RAGNAROK is said to be somewhat of a "buddy picture" which will bring Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) into the world of Asgard. A report by Birth.Movies.Death has claimed that THOR: RAGNAROK will be Marvel's darkest film yet, and that Marvel hired Taika Waititi to help "brighten the corners of Ragnarok while maintaining writer Christopher Yost's apocalyptic vibe." If THOR: RAGNAROK really will be as dark as they say, a dose of humour, which Marvel does quite well, would be a welcome addition.

THOR: RAGNAROK is set for a November 3, 2017 release.

Humor in Thor movies are fine, but they really need to put in a much better villain than those dark elves in Thor 2.

No! Ragnorak is not a humorous event. It's supposed to be scary not funny! More fantasy too please!

Thor is my favorite character in the MU and I have yet to get a truly great movie. All of the scenes in Asgard are always great then when they come to Earth I get slowly beaten down by Kat Dennings. I just want this all to take place away from Earth., though I know it won't. I still like Thor 1 and 2 but wish we could get a darker movie. Guardians is a great tone to shoot for as it is dark with comedy.

I think the two Thor movies so far had the right amount of humour, and that their funnier scenes were handled really nicely - honestly for Ragnarok I expected them to head into darker territory. Hoping this one will be less Earth-based too - let's see Thor go full-on warrior in this.

No, what Thor needs is for Marvel to ditch the humour and embrace the darkness...only then might it reach it's potential for being a truly great movie :o) I did actually enjoy the second one more than the first, but if there's one thing both had in abundance...it was its humour. BTW, I won't be happy if we get a dark trailer and then a film that turns out to be the funniest of the series - I'm looking at you Iron Man 3.

This film needs more badass space vikings and screentime for The Warriors Three.

Nope!

What this movie needs is a tight script, good directing, and LESS humor.

Humor is the last thing this movie needs. This is probably the most vital film leading up to Infinity Wars, so I'm hoping this film really showcases Thor's true powers and strength that really hasn't been displayed so much through all of his appearances thus far. This will probably be the last solo Thor film with Hemsworth, so I'm really hoping Marvel goes all out on this final entry since the character and Hemsworth both deserve it.

And this will probably be the beginning of Thanos

And this will probably be the beginning of Thanos starting his reign for the infinity stones, so the tone for how dangerous and badass Thanos is to the Avengers has to be properly displayed as well. Like I said, probably the most vital film leading up to the events of Infinity Wars, so the last thing this film needs to focus on is more humor. Plus, the Guardians of the Galaxy humor doesn't really fit the personality or tone for Thor and his films (in my opinion of course).

Nope

Keep it dark. The Thor movies have been the worst Marvel movies so far. Plot holes everywhere, poor character development, even worse character relationships, and forcefully induced light-heartedness. I'm not saying they should make Ragnarok depressing, but I'd like to see them take the stories a bit more seriously before they turn around and try to make them funny.

Also, trying something different for the sake of trying something different is stupid. Find the formula that works for your

Also, trying something different for the sake of trying something different is stupid. Find the formula that works for your story and use it to your advantage. The Shakespearean approach was the best thing about Thor (1). Sure, do something different, but don't throw away the themes that worked in the process.
