Since filming had just begun on Thor: Ragnarok when last month's SDCC was raging, even the good folks in Hall H didn't get to see any footage from the film. One thing they did get to see, however, was this hilarious short film titled "While You Were Fighting: A Thor Mockumentary," which the rest of us mere mortals can now lay eyes on. We've seen teases from the film before, but this is the first time the entire Taika Waititi film could be seen.
Let's be honest, this whole thing is clever and all, but it's really worth it just to see Chris Hemsworth in swimtrunks talking with Mark Ruffalo who wonders why he keeps waking up in cut-offs when he never wears them. I have a feeling that this is but a taste of the dry humor to come in this film, and with Marvel loosening its grip slightly on its filmmakers, it's nice to see Waititi bringing his sensibilities to one of the biggest franchises in the world. I've said it before and I'll just keep on saying it, this is the Phase III film I'm most excited about, and this video has only increased that excitement.
