While I’ve been on hiatus from all things regarding Thor Ragnarok, it appears all things regarding Thor Ragnarok have suddenly come to life.
The big names (Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo… In case you’ve forgotten some of the Big Names) have arrived at Australia’s Gold Coast to begin filming at Village Roadshow Studios; Tom Hiddleston donned a black wig to reveal Loki’s Hair 2017; Mark Ruffalo released a video of himself as CGI Hulk, and photos of Asgard (presumably?) from the Thor Ragnarok set have begun to circulate the interwebs. There’s probably more stuff I’m missing here, but that’s the gist of it so far, right?
Anyway, Tom Hiddleston gives the sneak peak of his transformation into Thor Ragnarok‘s Loki here…
And while some of Asgard’s Thor 3 set photos have already been deleted from the net. here’s an amalgamation of those available so far…
And if you haven’t yet seen Mark Ruffalo on set of Thor Ragnarok and playing fisty cuffs as the Hulk, you can do so here…

I admit, I’ve been struggling to have any kind of faith in Thor Ragnarok for some time now – as is probably apparent by my lack of posts. But those set design photos have given me a little bit of hope. If nothing else, it’s comforting to see that, as with Thor: The Dark World, they’re going to be using real and rather large-scale sets to depict Asgard, rather than relying solely on CGI (which was something that irked the hell out of me in the first Thor film.)
And while I’m still somewhat troubled by Taika Waititi’s reveal that he was brought onboard in part to add more humour to the Thor movie franchise, I have developed a lot of faith in his ability to create movies that incorporate both humour, and rich story-telling (I’m talking about Boy and Hunt for the Wilderpeople here folks, not What We Do In the Shadows.)
So… I’m creeping back to my bunker of blankets, pillows, and snotty plague-ridden tissues. Gonna drown my head-cold sorrows in Vicks and lemon & honey drinks. Feel free to contact me if you have any comments or questions if you have any Thor 3 news to submit.
