Filming kicked off on Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok” on the fourth of July weekend and now, nearly four months later, production on the film is coming to a close with filming to wrap this weekend – almost one year exactly out from the movie’s release date.
Waititi has posted what could well be one of his last photos from the set, featuring the man himself flanked by the chairs used by Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth who would both appear to be done with filming as Waititi says he’s “gonna miss this pair of idiots”.
We’re still likely a long way off from the release of the first trailer which probably won’t happen until around April next year.

In related news, the screenwriter of the first “Thor” film Ashley Miller recently spoke with Cinema Blend and was asked to reflect on that film and if there was one element about it he would change if he could go back. He says:
“If there’s anything that I wish we could have done differently, I would have loved to have pumped up the battle with The Destroyer. I think that there was probably more to play there, and I think it was, again, difficult to realize on screen. Because that’s the moment of his [Thor’s] real transformation. The thing I’m most proud of with Thor is that it worked, and that people walked out of that theater loving Thor and seeing Thor the way I love him, and the way I see him.”
“Thor: Ragnarok” is currently targeting a November 3rd 2017 release.
