We’re about five months away from the highly anticipated release of Thor: Ragnarok, the third installment in Marvel’s franchise about the God of Thunder. However, as industry professionals and us dedicated fans very well know, a film’s production never really ends until the red carpet premiere. And, considering how grand Marvel’s superhero projects are, it’s no real surprise that Ragnarok is still trying to perfect its final cut.
According to local news outlets, Marvel Studios recently released a casting call in Atlanta, Georgia for several scene reshoots for the upcoming film. After an initial fitting last weekend in Fayetteville, the studio plans to film in Atlanta on July 12 and 19, 2017.
The nature of these scenes is still unknown, especially since most of the film’s filming and photography already wrapped up in Queensland, Australia several months ago. But we can certainly visualize all the important, plot-related scenes that are sure to result from these reshoots based on the casting call’s desired actor description:
Caucasian-looking men who are over 18 and between 5’10” and 6’1″ are sought. You must be very physically fit, with muscular and defined arms. (Subject line for emails from interested actors: FIT. Please also include a shirtless photo).
I mean, we all watch the Thor movies for the plot, right?
In all seriousness, we can come up with a few legitimate theories based on this new information on the film and the information gleaned from the first teaser trailer. For example, the new environment could be part of the gladiator world that Thor is trapped in following his disastrous confrontation with the villain Hela. These actors could serve as a lineup of possible contenders in the gladiator battles we see in the trailer.
These shirtless actors could also be Asgardians, displaced after the apparent destruction of Asgard and forced to fight for their lives alongside Heimdall, as played by Idris Elba.
It’s fun to speculate, but only time will tell if any of these initial predictions are right. Are you still excited for this latest Thor movie? What are your predictions about these reshoots? If you’re in the ATL, are you going to try and find the set to take some photos?
