Marvel Reveals New THOR: RAGNAROK Filming Details

In the following press release that surprisingly excludes Thor: Ragnarok director Taiki Waititi as well as the Incredible Hulk, Marvel Studios reveals when and where exactly in Australia will Chris Hemsworth's third solo outing as the God of Thunder be filming. Check it out!



From Taiki Waititi signing on as director to Mark Ruffalo signing on as the Incredibe Hulk, we've learned more about Thor: Ragnarok within the past few weeks than we have all year. And while it announced last week that the 2017 threequel will be shooting in Australia, Marvel has now revealed when and where exactly in the country will principal photography be taking place. It's interesting that the press release fails to acknowledge the aforementioned cast and crew additions, as well as the initial reports that said filming would occur in Georgia, but check it out below!

Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok, the third instalment of the Marvel Studios’ franchise starring Chris Hemsworth as the hammer-wielding comic book Super Hero, has today been confirmed to start pre-production in Queensland in January 2016 with filming to begin in June 2016. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk met with Marvel executives in June in Los Angeles and, through Screen Queensland, worked tirelessly to ensure Queensland was the production destination of choice.

“This is a huge win for Queensland and I am thrilled that Thor will be filming exclusively in our state,” Ms Palaszczuk said. “As our economy diversifies, Queensland is demonstrating its strength as a lead destination for filmmakers both internationally and locally, and my government is doing what it can to ensure that Queensland remains a global hub for the screen sector. The production will spend more than $100 million AUD in Queensland and will employ over 750 Queensland crew.”

“Queensland offers an amazing and diverse backdrop for Thor: Ragnarok and we are very excited to bring this film to such an incredible locale. Marvel Studios would like to thank the Queensland Government for helping to make this a reality,” said Louis D’Esposito, Co-President of Marvel Studios. The studio will film at many locations throughout Queensland including scenes at Village Roadshow Studios at the Gold Coast.


Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Anthony Hopkins, and Mark Ruffalo, Thor: Ragnarok is currently being scripted by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle with Taika Waititi set to direct, and the movie scheduled to release in theaters on November 3, 2017.
