In Park City to promote Hunt for the Wilderpeople his Sundance entry, director Taika Waititi talked a little about what he’s doing with Thor: Ragnarok; specifically, he aims to make it funnier than The Dark World.
“I’ll take the second film and just add some jokes to that.”
Honestly, all the elements to make a funnier Thor film are already in his back pocket; with a fantastic cast — plus a couple of new additions — we could all be laughing it up. Hiddleston and Hemsworth have already proven their excellent comedic chemistry and they love goofing around together.

Just add them to the mix, and presto! Funnier Thor.
