The movie is being directed by New Zealand’s Taika Waititi, who has confessed that he’s eyeing a cameo for himself in the blockbuster.
‘I can’t help myself,’ the 40-year-old told the Daily Telegraph after revealing that he will ‘probably’ pop up in the highly-anticipated product.

If Waititi does end up in the film, it certainly won’t be his first time appearing in a superhero flick.
The handsome Kiwi previously had a supporting role in DC Entertainment’s 2011 movie, The Green Lantern.
Waititi previously opened up to the Daily Mail Australia about The Green Lantern’s famously poor box office performance, admitting that it didn’t come as much of a surprise to him.

‘Being part of it and reading the script and seeing how it all came together, I wasn’t really surprised with how it was received,’ he told the Daily Mail Australia.
‘A classic example was when we were blocking a scene and I said ‘I have one line and it’s not really necessary to the story and it doesn’t further the scene, just a suggestion but maybe I shouldn’t be in this scene?’
‘They were like ‘Shut up Taika, just say your line and do the scene’ and I said okay, and just sat there literally doing nothing and wondering ‘What the f*** am I doing in this movie?’.’

The Academy Award-nominated star has been producing critically and commercially successful films in New Zealand since 2003, and is even behind the highest-grossing New Zealand movie ever, Boy.
Unsurprisingly, he’s also known for casting himself in his own projects.
Waititi has appeared in every single film that he’s written and/or directed, Eagle Vs. Shark, What We Do in the Shadows, and Hunt for the Wilderpeople.
Thor: Ragnarok, which stars Australia’s Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett, is due for release in 2017.
