‘Thor: Ragnarok’: Director Talks Deleted Post-Credit Scene, Details

Director Taika Watiti, in a recent interview, shared details about how he and his team decided to include two post-credits scenes in Thor: Ragnarok and also spoke about an alternate version of the second post-credit scene featuring the Grandmaster.

Post-credit in Marvel films is nothing new, and mid and post-credits are now part of Marvel tradition. Fans look forward to the mid and post-credits. While it sometimes contains spoilers of upcoming films, many a time it gives a little peek-a-boo of Marvel Studios.

As far as Thor: Ragnarok is concerned, it has two credit scenes. The mid-credit scene reveals details on the upcoming Marvel films, especially their upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. The post-credit scene is more playful and features one of the film’s memorable characters.

In a conversation with Collider, Watiti opened about an alternate version of the post-credit scene showcasing the Grandmaster. The scene, he said will appear on the DVD in the deleted scene.

“We were determined to not have too many of them. The thing [with Loki and Thor], that was the thing we did in reshoots. It was a last minute decision. And the other thing at the end, with The Grandmaster, was something we shot on Gold Coast that was something I planned for a long time. It was either going to be that or it was going to be Topaz and Grandmaster stowing away on the ship at the end.”

“That could be on the DVD in the deleted scenes, those two in the crowd of the Asgardians and he pushes through and goes, ‘I’ve never heard of this Earth place but… We got to keep a low profile.’ And they kind of put these blankets over their heads and disband into the crowd,” said Taika Watiti.

Thor: Ragnarok has released all across the globe and has taken the box office by storm. The film stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Karl Urban as Skurge, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. The post-production work was carried by Taika Waititi.
