Marvel Studios decided totally change the focus of the thunder god franchise with "Thor: Ragnarok" bringing the eccentric and peculiar director Taika Waititi on board the project. Giving a focus clearly framed in comedy, instead of simply using it as a dramatic relief as in the first two installments, the film was successful at the box office and public, but even its participants were reluctant at the beginning.
During his visit to the ACE Comic Con, actor Chris Hemsworth has confirmed that Mark Ruffalo had reservations about the representation the booklet made of Bruce Banner / Hulk, a similar reaction received from Tessa Thompson, who played Valkyrie.
I remember Mark Ruffalo looked at me and told me ‘Are we tearing this movie apart? Are we tearing these characters apart? and Tessa was also of the plan ‘What am I part of? What am I doing?'.
However, it is very wise that Hemsworth has been one of the main supporters of this new approach and that, seeing the final result, both Ruffalo and Thompson have been comfortable with their characters.
Fruit of its success, in 2021 we will have the continuation in “Thor: Love and Thunder”, for which Waititi will return as director and Hemsworth and Thompson as actors, adding to them the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, this time as Mighty Thor.
