Taika Waititi on Which Civil War Team Thor Would Have Sided With

06.15.16 12 months ago

New Zealand director Taika Waititi is taking on the God of Thunder for Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok. But how well does he know Chris Hemsworth's character? Let us see.

I won't go into everything you need to know about Thor: Ragnarok because, well, Roth Cornet did just that earlier today! (But seriously, how about that cast?) Instead, let's take a detour into speculation town.

Waititi spoke to Fandango about his upcoming film Hunt for the Wilderpeople but they also asked him a very important question – if Thor had been on Earth for the events of Captain America: Civil War, which side would he have taken? Any guesses?

Here's what he told them:

“We've talked a little bit about this. Personally, I feel Thor would have started his own team. He wouldn't have liked the idea of those teams. But, even though Thor is from outer space and he lives in a palace, part of me likes to think he would side with Cap. I would side with Cap purely because I don't trust billionaires.”

I concur. If only because Thor is a very “don't tell me what I can or can't do” kind of guy.

Fandango also alerted me to this amusing video Disney shared of Hemsworth weighing in on the same topic a few months ago. What do you think?
