Taika Waititi-Produced Sort-of-Rom-Com The Breaker Upperers Showcases Hilarious Women at SXSW

We love us some Taika Waititi around here, and while we are all about Thor:Ragnarok, we also know that he's been delivering his unique brand of energy, humor, and irreverent storytelling to all sorts of films as a director, and as an actor.

“Darryl” Has Found a New Otherworldly Marvel Roommate as The Grandmaster Moves In

You may remember Marvel's Team Thor mockumentary, in which Thor navigated life as a normal dude on Earth. Thor was dealing with feelings of insecurity prompted by his Avengers friends not including him in their Civil War fun. Darryl is the "normal guy" who had to deal with a somewhat insufferable god as a roommate. Thor is now gone, and Darryl has moved from Australia to Los Angeles ... which has necessitated finding someone new with whom he can share an apartment. Enter The Grandmaster.

Valkyrie Was Almost a Love Interest in Thor: Ragnarok—and She Could’ve Rocked a Very Different Look

Also, give us our Valkyrie movie right now. Thank you.

Thor: Ragnarok concept designs from Marvel artists reveal some of the visions that didn't make their way into Taika Waititi's hit. They're all fascinating, and beautifully rendered, but I only have eyes for Valkyrie. The character was as wonderful—and important—as we hoped.

Also, I'm a much bigger fan of the closely-cropped hair than I ever was of Thor's longer, shaggier do. As it turns out, we have Kevin Smith and his nerdy ranting to thank for the change!

Review: Thor: Ragnarok Is Very Weird, Very Funny, and Very Much A Thor Film

4 out of 5 stars.

From its baldly preposterous plot to director Taika Waititi's signature humor, Thor: Ragnarok has way more character than any corporate, third-in-a-series superhero movie has the right to. It's as funny as it is messy.
