"Thor: Ragnarok" wrapped production in Australia yesterday and to celebrate that achievement, director Taika Waititi took viewers on a tour of one of the film's locations. The video posted to Facebook showed off a set covered in piles of junk, rubble and wreckage. The set also included a spaceship but, as Waititi noted, only the exterior appears in the film. But while the video was mostly a fun tour of the film's lakeside set, there were also a few minor reveals.
For one thing, the video gave fans their first look at Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie. The actress, who has yet to be spotted in costume on the "Ragnarok" set, joined Waititi and film lead Chris Hemsworth in the final moments of the video. As seen in the video, Thompson is sporting white warpaint, which may be part of Valkyrie's look in the film. Valkyrie doesn't wear any facepaint in the comics, so this stylish new look may be introduced by the new "Thor" movie.
Additionally, an offhand comment made by Waititi seemingly reveals that a specific character from the "Planet Hulk" storyline will appear in the "Thor" movie. Around the 10:55 mark of the video, the director casually introduces an actor named Steve and says that he is playing a character named Miek.
In the original Marvel comics, Miek was an insectoid alien that fought alongside Hulk to help him break free of the gladiator games. Of course, Steve doesn't look very insect-y in this video, nor is he wearing a mocap suit. Still, it's worth noting that it's possible Steve will wear makeup or prosthetics -- or maybe he's an entirely new, humanoid iteration of the character. You can watch the entire FB live video below.
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban and Mark Ruffalo, “Thor: Ragnarok” is set to be released on November 3, 2017.
