Two Marvel films have released details of their production schedules with Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok” set to begin shooting in Australia next month on July 4th says a new report in the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Shooting will take place at Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland with filming currently slated to continue through until at least October and possibly up until the year’s end. Waititi tells the outlet:
“I’ve been hanging out with Chris and I’ve been working on the script with the writer, designing swords and things and looking at pieces of armour. I am an outside choice for Thor for sure – even I see that – but that’s what’s good about Marvel, what’s great about it. They’re able to do that and it’s paid off for them – getting people who aren’t the natural choice. You see it again and again, so I’m very comfortable in the role. I’m weirdly relaxed.”
The movie isn’t due out in cinemas until November 3rd 2017. Check out the first sets being constructed for “Thor: Ragnarok” below:
