On the off-chance that you're experiencing major superhero fatigue right now (seriously, does it never stop?), I'm here to inform you that no, it never stops, and in fact it's even less close to stopping than ever before ("it" being the constant deluge of impossible-not-to-click superhero rumors, spoilers, teaser trailers, teasers for teaser trailers — you get the picture), as evidenced by the arrival of a new behind-the-scenes production featurette for Thor: Ragnarok.
Ragnarok is the third of this year's new additions to the #MCU, and although it's still seven months away from arriving in theaters, it's absolutely essential that Marvel starts teasing it now, in case we all forget about it and move on with our lives.
The featurette in question is less than a minute long but it is our first insight into the behind-the-scenes action on #ThorRagnarok, and our first look at footage of the cast and director Taiki Waititi on set, and therefore it's imperative that you stop what you're doing immediately and watch the video below.
There are definite, strong hints of Star Wars in the rag outfits and weird bug masks of those scavengers, so it seems the aesthetic of this movie might expand on the usual Norse-inspired visual seen in previous visits to Asgard. We also get a cheeky look at Waititi working on CGI for the gladiatorial battle between Hulk and Thor, which looks like it's still in the very early stages of VFX work.

So, to recap, you cannot avoid superhero movies, and Thor: Ragnarok might be very good indeed. The brilliant header art was made by Robert Bruno on Behance.
