Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” has just been released today on Digital and Movies Anywhere — the Blu-ray will be out March 6 — and to mark the occasion, our own Ryan Penagos sat down with director Taika Waititi for This Week in Marvel to discuss some of the standout moments and characters in the hit film. Of course, if you’re familiar with Taika and his sense of humor, you won’t be surprised that this isn’t exactly a typical, straightforward interview… Check out the video above to see what Taika had to say!

You can check out plenty of bonus features when you bring home “Thor: Ragnarok” on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere on February 20 and 4K Ultra HD™ and Blu-ray™ on March 6. Order your copy today!

In “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his home world and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela (Cate Blanchett). But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) – and grapple with his silver-tongued adopted brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the fierce warrior Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and the eccentric Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum).

Fans who bring home the Ultimate Cinematic Universe Edition (4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital) of “Thor: Ragnarok” will experience all the thunderous action and lightning-fast wit in stunning 4K Ultra HD with next-generation high dynamic range (HDR) visuals and Dolby Atmos immersive audio. Exclusive, never-before-seen bonus features include deleted scenes; hilarious outtakes; an exclusive short: part three of the mockumentary “Team Thor,” retitled “Team Darryl” and featuring an eccentric new roommate; the evolution of MCU’s heroes culminating in “Avengers: Infinity War;” numerous making-of featurettes which explore the unique vision of director Taika Waititi; the story’s unstoppable women; the effortlessly charismatic Korg; the tyrannical leader of Sakaar, the Grandmaster; and the film’s comic-book origins; audio commentary by Waititi; and more.
