10 Things We Learned At Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Press Day

It’s pretty much safe to say that Thor: Ragnarok will be a game changer, as it not only takes the Thor franchise in a new direction but the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. And a lot of that is thanks in part to Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige giving director Taika Waititi the freedom he needed to tell the story that he wanted to tell while also being confined to the rules of the MCU. The sequel is a bombastic thrill ride from start to finish and is finally a Thor movie that everyone can enjoy.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Feige and Waititi, as well as stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Karl Urban (Executioner), and Rachel House (Topaz). During the event, we learned about the Taika effect, missing Asgardians, Hulk finally getting some dialogue, what the newcomers have to say about joining the universe, and much more. Read more below about the top ten things we heard at the Thor: Ragnarok press conference.

While the Avengers deal with end of the world conflicts, and the Guardians of the Galaxy protect the galaxy, it’s up to the Revengers to defend the realms. You’ve never heard of the Revengers? Well, they will appear in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok and are made up of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), and Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Four unlikely banished heroes who unite to defend Asgard from Hela (Cate Blanchett) bringing the Asgardian apocalyptic event known as Ragnarok.

The highly anticipated sequel has already earned some high praise from critics (you can read our review here), and now to get people even more psyched for the film, Marvel Studios has released a new featurette about the Revengers and their quest to defeat Hela.

Check out the latest featurette for the film below.

How Heavy Metal and Yo Gabba Gabba Help Influenced The ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Score

Thor Ragnarok Tessa Thompson

Shooting a movie can be a grueling process for everyone on set. And one way that directors can make it easier for everyone is to play music. Though the choice can vary from director to director, most would agree that these productions are a lot easier to go through if everyone is loosened up. And director Taika Waititi made Thor: Ragnarok a lot of fun with shifting the franchise in a new direction with the heavy metal vibes.

Geeks of Doom recently sat down with fellow members of the press at the Thor: Ragnarok junket, where we learned more about the process of making the film, and the music that played while on set. But as for the film’s heavy metal look, Waititi said he had the full support of everyone over at Marvel Studios. In doing so, he gave us an absolute bombastic film that looks like it was pulled straight off a heavy metal cover art and tons of fun.

But that isn’t the only musical inspiration behind Thor: Ragnarok. In fact, there was another band that helped influence the film. And I use that term very loosely. There were a couple of Yo Gabba Gabba songs that helped the cast get through the production. Find out more about this in the full story below.

Thor Ragnarok Valkyrie

While Marvel Studios has paved the way for strong heroines, they still are way behind in getting a female superhero standalone film out. So as fans anxiously await the arrival of Captain Marvel, many other female superheroes are making a case for their own standalone feature and even an all-female Avengers-type film.

Case in point, Tessa Thompson who plays Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok. As Valkyrie, she is a strong fearless warrior who proves to be more than a match for Thor. But she hides a few battle scars that she received from an encounter with Hela (Cate Blanchett).

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast of Thor: Ragnarok, where Thompson talked about her role in the film, her response to some of the changes to Valkyrie, and how she rallied her fellow female superheroes and asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige for an all-female superhero film. More on the story below.
