The God of Thunder isn't the only one headed home for Thor: Ragnarok. It appears that star Chris Hemsworth will get to spend some time in his home country while filming the sequel, as Ausfilm announced this week that the movie would be filmed in Australia. And, while he's not an Aussie, director Taika Waititi, who is in talks to helm Thor: Ragnarok, will be just a short trip away from his own home country of New Zealand. Also filming in Australia will be Ridley Scott's Alien: Paradise Lost.
“These two major U.S. productions will inject hundreds of millions of dollars into the economy, employ thousands of people across Australia not just within our screen industry but will also utilize Australian goods and services," said Debra Richards, CEO of Ausfilm. "Productions of this size also contribute to generating skills and training of Australia’s crews and represent a major development and investment opportunity for creative talent both in front of and behind the camera."
That's not the only Thor news hitting the web today- sort of. Hemsworth himself posted his first Instagram video, in which he claims to have met "Superman," and, well, see for yourself:
