The Marvel Cinematic Universe had a problem when it came to Thor. They had this great character, built him up, created his world, cast a talented actor in Chris Hemsworth, and then had no clue what to do with him. So, in a last-ditch effort, they hired the hilarious Taika Waititi to spearhead the next Thor movie and gave him full creative reign to do as he pleased in the hopes of revitalizing the genre, and he sure did. Waititi created one of the most beloved Marvel films with Thor: Ragnarok and won many new fans over. The newfound humor, exciting new characters, and excellent use of classic rock music were just what the character and the fandom needed at the time, and it was an altogether fun affair.
