What better way to reflect on why everyone's still so dimwitted around him than on the toilet? But first, there's a new character in the fold: Glo...

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Will Be “Louder and More Bombastic” Than ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Thor: Ragnarok changed the trajectory of Marvel’s God of Thunder in a big way back in 2017. The franchise found new life with director Taika Waititi taking a hard turn into comedy and sending Chris Hemsworth to a more zany corner of the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he even brought Mark Ruffalo as Hulk along with him. And when the filmmaker gets back behind the camera for Thor: Love and Thunder next year, it’s only going to get crazier. Wired recently spoke with Taika Wait...

Mark Ruffalo Was Worried About ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Ruining Hulk and Thor

Thor: Ragnarok is one of the best movies on Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that’s largely thanks to director Taika Waititi breathing new life into the comic book franchise and really pushing Thor in an exciting new direction. Chris Hemsworth was very much excited to give the God of Thunder a new path to follow, but not everyone on the cast was quite so confident in this more comedic approach.
