VIDEO: Chris Hemsworth Confirms THOR: RAGNAROK Will Be Filmed In Australia

Hit the jump and check out Chris Hemsworth in this announcement video which finally confirms that Marvel Studios will soon be coming to the Australian actor's homeland for principal photography on the God of Thunder and Incredible Hulk's next appearance, Thor: Ragnarok.



On the heels of confirmation that Thor: Ragnarok will see actor Mark Ruffalo Hulk-out once again, we now know where else the God of Thunder and the Jade Giant will be teaming up once filming gets underway later next year. It was previously reported that Disney was considering Australia for production on the 2017 Marvel threequel, but now Hemsworth himself, as well as the Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, have confirmed that Ragnarok will be filmed in the Aussie actor's homeland.

"I wanted to say a huge thank you to the federal government, particularly the Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and Minister for the Arts Mitch Fifield for making it possible for Thor: Ragnarok to shoot here in Australia," Chris Hemsworth said. "I'm incredibly excited to be coming back home to work. [...] I look forward to introducing my Marvel friends to this beautiful country of ours."

When it was initially reported that Marvel/Disney were keen on bringing Thor: Ragnarok to Australia, it was also said that Captain Marvel might also be shot in the country. However, considering that project is scheduled for release nearly four years from now, don't expect any updates on that front anytime soon. Anyhow, in addition to Ragnarok, it was also announced that Ridley Scott's next Alien movie will also be utilizing Australia's tropical beaches and jungles. 




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 is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 3, 2017.
