`Thor: Ragnarok’ Wraps Up Production; Chris Hemsworth, Taika Waititi Join Protest to Protect Sacred Land & Water

Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth went on Facebook Live recently following the wrap-up of filming of `Thor: Ragnarok’ in Australia.

New Zealand film director Taika Waititi and Australian actor Chris Hemsworth recently went on Facebook Live video along with some of the other cast and crew members of Thor: Ragnarok after filming in Australia wrapped up.

Fans from all over the world were given a glimpse of the Thor actor and co-star Tessa Thompson as they joined Waititi in the live broadcast. There was a junkyard full of crashed ship and as the camera panned, Waititi presented the characters known as Scrappers. Online followers of Marvel Studios wrote how they love the Thor: Ragnarok crew and director and could not wait to see the movie.

The Thor: Ragnarok director did not mention spoilers, but dropped the name of an insectoid character called Miek originating from the Planet Hulk comic book storyline.

Hemsworth, 33, had a laidback look donning a white muscle tee with an imprinted word spelled backwards.

In other news, the Home and Away actor recently posted a photo of himself garbed in his Avengers costume and posing beside Waititi. He wrote that he was “standing with those who are fighting to protect their sacred land and water.” Other Hollywood celebrities, including Mark Ruffalo and Shailene Woodley, have lent full suport to artists who have protested the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

The handsome actor also owned up to the rather insensitive way he agreed to be photographed with a group, dressed in a traditional outfit of First Nations people. That was months ago and it went viral, something he recalled with regret after realizing the importance of probing deeper into the “complex and extensive issues facing indigenous communities.”

Thor: Ragnarok is slated to hit theaters during the last quarter of 2017. Besides Chris Hemsworth, some of the stars who will reprise their roles are Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins and Irdis Elba. Also joining the cast are Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster and Cate Blachett as the villanous Hela.
