“We are halfway through and it’s going really well,” Waititi said. “Everything is going to plan in that we didn’t have a plan to start with. It’s going better than expected and it’s a lot of fun shooting. The style is not too dissimilar to how I would normally work.

He also added that though Thor: Ragnarok isn’t typical for the style of film he works on, fate pretty much shoved it into his lap.
