Thor: Ragnarok's gag reel is weird and it is wonderful

Marvel films often look like they are even more fun to work on than they are to watch, and Thor: Ragnarok might be the most fun of them all.

That's because the endlessly goofy and quirky Taika Waititi of What We Do in the Shadows fame was sitting in the director's chair and, as you can imagine, plenty of the film's outtakes focus on him:

The featurette comes from the Thor: Ragnarok home release, which is out on February 26 (and available for pre-order now) and while it made us giggle, we're a little bit saddened by the revelation that Cate Blanchett's Hela outfit is a CGI thing.

Of all the bonkers things that did make it to the screen, there was plenty of weirdness in the script that didn't make it into the finished product – including something to do with a thousand screaming squirrels.

Even for a film about a man with a magical lightning hammer, that's pretty offbeat.

There was plenty of improvisation on the set that made it into the final film, including the standout 'get help' scene.

Next up for Marvel's Cinematic Universe is Black Panther, which isn't even out yet but it's already breaking records for the studio: tickets are selling out so quickly that even star Lupita Nyong'o can't book a showing.

Black Panther will pounce into cinemas (and maybe smash more records?) on February 9, 2018 in the UK and February 16, 2018 in the US.
