THOR: RAGNAROK Was Going To Feature A Flashback With Thor As A Fat Little Kid And Loki As A Goth

We met younger versions of Thor and Loki way back in 2011 but director Taika Waititi has now revealed that he wanted to include an amazing sounding scene with the two brothers in 1980s era Asgard...

Thor: Ragnarok is a fun movie with some very quirky moments but director Taika Waititi has now revealed that things could have got even weirder in the critically acclaimed Marvel Studios release. You see, the filmmaker was at one point planning on including a flashback to Thor and Loki's childhood where we would have met very different versions of the God of Thunder and God of Mischief. 

Can you imagine Thor as a fat little kid with a mullet and Loki as a Goth? Waititi certainly could! 


"Well I wanted this little thing, and maybe if we ever do a Thor 4 we can have it, but I wanted to do some flashbacks where Thor was a kid, a fat little kid. There was like an 80s version of Asgard where everyone had massive shoulder pads, and everyone had mullets (laughs). Our idea was Thor and Valkyrie meet and he’s like, ‘Hey I know you,’ and she’s like ‘Ha I remember you,’ and then it cuts back to this thing and he’s just this pudgy little kid walking around with a mullet and being picked on by other kids. And Loki’s like this little emo goth hanging out by himself. He was like the kid in Harry Potter, [Malfoy]."

Unfortunately, logic quickly seeped in and Waititi realised that it just wouldn't work if Thor and Valkyrie had any sort of history together. "The problem was we needed him to not know Valkyire in the film and stuff. And then it became less and less of a thing to have a flashback. We would’ve been forcing it, so it would’ve been a situation where we would have been having a pointless flashback."

It's a shame there wasn't a way to make this work because it would have been a fun scene and 80s Asgard sounds like a fun place to visit! What do you guys think of this scrapped scene from Thor: Ragnarok? As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts on this news in the usual place.
