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?
