We are all excited about the release of “Thor: Ragnarok”, but the people of Brisbane had another reason to be thrilled.
That’s because the sequel to “Thor: The Dark World” is currently being filmed in the Australian city, and it caused a huge frenzy when Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston made an appearance. However, that wasn’t the only notable event, as several shots of the set also gave us a first look at Anthony Hopkins as All-Father Odin.
In set photos, Thor and Loki looked like they always did, with the former rocking his signature blonde wig and Loki with his long locks. In contrast, Hopkins’ character looked slightly downtrodden and resembled a homeless man, earning him the nickname “HobOdin” from netizens.
Filming in the central business district of Brisbane began on Monday (22nd August) and will end tomorrow (25th August). That means fans have had plenty of chances to meet their favourite celebrities, and could also snag a selfie or 2 with them tomorrow if they haven’t.
Hemsworth and Hiddleston were game enough to take several selfies with fans, with the hundreds of photos floating around the interwebs a testament to that. Although the cast were probably exhausted after a long shoot, they still took the time to thank fans and apologised for “shutting down their city centre”.
Take a look at the photos here:
A total of 6 roads were closed for the filming of the movie, and the Premier of Australia Annastacia Palaszczuk also met the cast in a closed set on Tuesday (23rd August).
Directed by Taika Waititi, “Thor: Ragnarok” is slated for cinematic release on 3rd November 2017.
