Taika Waititi Introduces Thor: Ragnarok in Hilarious Clip

It won't be long before Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok becomes available for everyone to own. With the film's home release arriving in only a few weeks, we can expect the studio to parcel out snippets of the bonus features, including director Taika Waititi's introduction to the film.

The clip, which debuted on io9, is just ... the most Taika Waititi thing ever. If you've seen the filmmaker's previous work, like What We Do in the Shadows or Hunt for the Wilderpeople, you'll watch this with the biggest smile on your face.

In the video, Waititi throws shade at his parents, and at director J.J. Abrams, admit he made the film just for social media fame, and talks about his ambitions for Ragnarok. "There's monsters, explosions, pretty ladies, handsome men, there's a Hulk ... that's what we tried to do, and I think we did it," he says at the end. It is ... a lot, which frankly shows why he's such a perfect fit for Thor in the first place. When you get the home release version of the film, it's best to play this introduction before you play the new Marvel Studios intro Waititi came up with.


Thor: Ragnarok arrives Feb. 20 on digital, followed March 6 by the Blu-ray and DVD. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Jeff Goldblum, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
