It’s been well-documented that the first two standalone Thor movies left a lot to be desired. Fans weren’t impressed, and the box office numbers were disappointing. Everyone involved with the movies knew that changes would have to be made if the series was to survive. Well, it worked. Thor: Ragnarok has been getting the best reviews we’ve seen for a Marvel movie in years, and the fans have responded in a positive way, giving the movie an opening weekend nearly $40 million better than the last Thor film. Some of the changes made to the movie happened behind the scenes, but one of the biggest changes was pretty obvious — although it’s still Chris Hemsworth playing the character, he looks a lot different in the new movie, and he told us why they made those changes.
Thor: Ragnarok, which is already closing in on $500 million in worldwide box office totals, is playing now in theaters everywhere.
