Thor: Ragnarok director responds to mean comments in hilarious video

Taika Waititi isn't going to let Internet trolls get to him. The Thor: Ragnarok director recently responded to mean comments about him and his upcoming film in a video for IGN, showing off his signature sense of humor.

Most of the video is made up of Waititi quipping about people's usernames and about their lack of proper punctuation. In response to a comment from a user called Bruce Wayne saying that the movie looked "beyond stupid," Waititi said, "Well it is beyond stupid and that's why it's the best movie of the year and that's why we've gonna take all the money from Bruce Wayne."

If Waititi's wacky interview wasn't nough humor for you, he also reaffirmed the fact that Ragnarok will be the funniest of the Thor movies, responding to a commenter who said that the movie "seems more like a comedy than a serious Marvel movie" by saying, "Well, at least you're being honest. And you're absolutely right, it does seem more like a comedy, doesn't it? Because it is." 

Ragnarok's reviews have noted how much the movie plays up the funny, although there's still your typical Marvel superhero plotting to look forward to as well. The movie sees the return of Chris Hemsworth's Thor, who now has to deal with Cate Blanchett's goddess of death Hela, who was released thanks to some lax rule on Asgard courtesy of Thor's trickster brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston). 

Hela unleashes hell on Asgard, destroying Thor's hammer and banishing him to the desolate planet of Sakaar in the process. There, he is captured by Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), who brings him to the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), a nefarious ruler who cuts off his hair and forces him to fight against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Although Marvel is saving the battle for the big screen, we do know that, eventually, the pair will escape and head off on an intergalactic adventure to take down Hela. (They'll also get some help from Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, in one of the film's few stops on Earth.)

Hopefully, Waititi will continue to grace us with hilarious interviews as the press tour for Ragnarok heats up. Viewers will get to see the director's full vision on the big screen when the movie debuts on Nov. 3.
