Thor: Ragnarok Will Have A Different Tone Than Guardians Of The Galaxy


Thor: Ragnarok’s tone may not be as similar to Guardians of the Galaxy as we thought.

When we first laid our eyes on the first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, most of us had the same thoughts: it looks exciting, it looks fun, and it looks an awful lot like a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Most seemed fine with the movie having a similar tone to those films, while others would prefer it to have a different feel. Now, Kevin Feige has finally shed some light on this.

Feige recently did an interview with Heroic Hollywood, and explained that the film’s tone would not be too much like the Guardians of the Galaxy films. However, he did go on to explain that those movies did affect Ragnarok in another way:

"“Well, I think I would say it’s, and as people see more of Ragnarok, it’s a Taika tone more than a Guardians tone. He’s really adding a very unique point of view to it, but certainly the success of Guardians just boosted our confidence to continue to go in new, fun, weird directions.”"

This makes a lot of sense. The teaser trailer may have felt like a Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but it also felt like a Taika Waititi movie. Waititi’s work has a unique style that’s marked by his sharp, self-referential wit. And even if the movie does have a slight Guardians of the Galaxy feel, it still makes sense, as Thor will be venturing out to the far reaches of space (the Guardians of the Galaxy’s territory).

We still have a while before we see Thor’s third solo outing, so we’ll just have to wait and see just how close the God of Thunder’s latest adventure is to the misadventures of those cosmic outlaws.

Thor: Ragnarok will blast into theaters on November 3, 2017.
