Marvel’s latest film has yet to hit more theaters all over the world but reviews are already pouring in after it premiered at the El Capital Theatre in Los Angeles on October 10. Most reviews had nothing but praise for the new Marvel movie and to make sure that fans weren't shocked with the changes, the director released an explanation.

“Thor: Ragnarok” is the third Thor film and it is set to be released in movie theaters in the United States starting November 3. The plot takes place four years after the events of the second instalment, “Thor: The Dark World” and Hulk plays a huge role in the new film.

The funniest Marvel movie yet

When the trailers for “Thor: Ragnarok” were released, Marvel Entertainment claimed the film to be their boldest project yet and it seems like they weren’t exaggerating at all. The film revealed a whole new majestic portrayal of a universe fit for gods and it showed unexpectedly hilarious banter that viewers appreciated very much.

Director Taika Waititi joined the production in October 2014 to replace Alan Taylor, who decided not to return for the third movie. Waititi’s vision for the film gave the story something fresh and he maximized Hulk’s participation in the film by making sure that there was a friendly rivalry going on between him and Thor.

However, some reviews pointed out that the film was too funny, and that the comedy overshadowed what might have been a better story.

“Thor: Ragnarok” boasted of hysterical spectacles and great cinematography, but it couldn’t make up for the lack of heart in its story especially since the emotional aspect was a huge factor that made the first Marvel films to stand out.

Taika Waititi on the sudden changes

Marvel Entertainment revealed a number of trailers for “Thor: Ragnarok” to keep the hype going, but once the movie was released, fans noticed a huge change in one of the most anticipated scenes originally shown in the trailer.

The said scene pertained to where Hela (Cate Blanchett) destroyed Thor’s hammer and overpowered Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in a city alley.

In the movie, the scene’s location had been changed and instead of an alley, the encounter took place in a huge open green field. According to Digital Spy, Waititi explained that they decided to revamp this scene at the last minute because it was an important scene that involved Odin (Anthony Hopkins).

The director added that he didn’t want Odin’s emotional scene with his sons to take place in a rundown alley so they went for a beautiful, peaceful environment instead. In addition to explaining the changes, Waititi also revealed that they’ve prepared an alternate version of one post-credit scene, which will be included in the DVD and Blu-ray.
