It’s nice to know that the heroic scene from Thor: Ragnarok, where Heimdall leads the Asgardian refugees down the Bifrost, was not fully CGI. Although the actual rainbow bridge was added in later, the pathway and ruins of Asgard were all real. With the help of several cameras to capture all the angles of the scene, we got the Idris Elba slow-motion moment we were all hoping for in the final act of Ragnarok.
This photo is more of a behind-the-scenes look at the fun that the cast of Thor had right from the get-go. Although Loki was never worthy to wield the hammer of Thor in the movie, at least Tom Hiddleston got to hold the prop when the cameras weren’t rolling. And just imagine if Loki ever was worthy to hold the hammer within the plot of the film; it would either mean that he had completely changed himself to become as righteous as Thor or that he would essentially have a clear (and mischievous) path to the throne of Asgard and possibly Earth, too. As intriguing as that may be, it looks like we’re only getting a behind-the-scenes glimpse for that story. Sorry, Loki!
Some fans may already know that Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi played the soft-spoken rock alien Korg. What fans may not know is that during his scenes, he wore a motion capture suit and a sign above his head with a picture of Korg, just so the other actors could have the right eye line for the scenes with him. Technically, a picture isn’t necessary but leave it to Taika to go above and beyond in his devotion to the craft…of being Korg.
