"Thor: Ragnarok's" Waititi Receives Some Explosive Advice from Marvel Directors Reed & Gunn

Just how many explosions does it take to make a Marvel movie? That's what "Thor: Ragnarok" director Taika Waititi wanted to find out when he got in touch with "Ant-Man's" Peyton Reed and "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn on Twitter. Reed and Gunn responded in kind, offering Waititi a few tongue-in-cheek guidelines.

Waititi also reached out to Scott Derrickson, who directed the upcoming "Doctor Strange" film, in a similar way and bemoaned the fact that "Spider-Man: Homecoming" director Jon Watts doesn't have a Twitter himself.

@JamesGunn @MrPeytonReed Hey guys. When you're making one of these big movies, how many explosions are you supposed to put in? I have one.

@JamesGunn @MrPeytonReed And it's not so much an explosion - more of a "boink" sound.

@TaikaWaititi @JamesGunn Hmm. That's not gonna cut it, Taika. Check your contract. Marvel minimum is 42 onscreen explosions. Required!

12. Add 11 school buses full of kids exploding & you'll be good. People love that in superhero movies. https://t.co/4NH6FJf4jt

@TaikaWaititi @JamesGunn And they're strict! They didn't even count my Pym Tech explosion because "technically it's an IMplosion."

Yes, but that's not Marvel, that's a new federal law. https://t.co/0Wk2RJreGq

@scottderrickson Hey man, don't tell anyone at Marvel but I'm freaking out. Strictly confidential!

Someone tell Jon Watts to join twitter. I need to know if he wants to swap titles. "Spiderman Ragnarok" and "Thor Homecoming" would rule.

Directed by Taika Waititi and starring Chris Hemsworth, "Thor: Ragnarok" is scheduled to open on November 3, 2017.
