Recently, “Thor: Love and Thunder” director Taika Waititi talked about the style of the film in an interview.
If “Thor: Ragnarok” was a ’70s-style space opera, then “Thor: Love and Thunder” added a little ’80s vibe.
Taika Waititi says “Thor: Love and Thunder” is visually heavily influenced by ’80s adventure films, such as 1982’s “Conan the Barbarian” and “The Beastmaster”, like those on the Venice Beach van Colorful art paintings.
Taika Waititi was ready to return to the MCU for “Thor: Love and Thunder”: “I think the biggest difference is that shooting “Thor: Ragnarok” was the first time I fell into the Marvel bunker In this one, I think I have accumulated some experience and know how to improve the efficiency of shooting.”
Not long ago, “Thor: Love and Thunder” released the first trailer and related posters and stills. As Taika Waititi said, the style has indeed changed again.
The first two installments of the series, directed by Kenneth Branagh (“Death on the Nile”) and Alan Taylor (“The Many Saints of Newark”), were “normal” in the MCU and didn’t have much of a bright spot until the third installment The brothers “Thor” and “Loki” got interesting.
Taika Waititi also said, “I don’t want to just repeat ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ again because that’s the end of it. I have to do something more interesting for myself to keep the whole process on fire and make sure I can feel it. Constant creative stimulation. “Thor: Ragnarok” feels like a party, very festive. “Thor: Love and Thunder” is a superhero blockbuster and a romantic comedy, but more profound.”
In addition, Taika Waititi also said, “Thor: Love and Thunder” is also like a midlife crisis movie.
“Thor: Love and Thunder” will be released in Northern America on July 8. In addition to the return of Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Guardians of the Galaxy, Christian Bale also joins the film and plays the villain.
