‘THOR: RAGNAROK’ BTS Details Reveal How That TWIST Came To Be And A MCU Adversary That Was Cut *SPOILERS*

No comments

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is currently ragnaroking theaters, sorry, I’ll see myself out. The film sees Thor take on Hela with the help of Loki, The Hulk, and Valkirye. The final cut of the film was fantastic but as with every film, a lot was left on the cutting room floor. Some of the details of what was cut have been released.  Also, how the major twist in the film came to be.

*Spoiler ahead for ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

The film’s screenwriter Eric Pearson sat down with Yahoo!, where he divulged some details about his entry in the MCU. He discussed how he didn’t actually pitch the idea of Hela being Thor’s sister, mainly because of Brad Winderbaum, VP of production and development at Marvel Studios told him not to:

 “Brad told me, ‘Don’t tell anyone. Just write it into the script. If we pitch it, it’s so much more likely to get shot down. Just write it into the movie.’”

That script eventually hit Kevin Feige’s desk, which would make any writer nervous, Pearson discussed Marvel’s head honcho’s reaction:

 “Brad showed me Kevin’s note, and [the reveal] was circled with ‘WHOA!’ [spelled out next to it],”


Pearson then revealed that there was a major callback to the first ‘Thor’ film that was cut, that included a foe of Thor’s you may remember:

There was [also] a scene where she thought they were hiding the sword in the armory, this big fortress. She goes up, and the destroyer armor comes out to take her out, and she just rips that thing apart too, just to call back the destroyer armor. And it just felt like an extra beat that we didn’t need. We needed to get Thor pushing back to Asgard as fast as possible.”
