Smashing the $100 million box office mark internationally over the weekend and bringing in some of the best reviews for a Marvel Cinematic Universe release to-date, it's fair to say that director Taika Waititi has made a huge success with his Chris Hemsworth-led film, 'Thor: Ragnarok', especially when compared to the first two solo ventures for the Norse God Avenger.

The box office success is something that's going to continue when the film finally gets its US release on November 3 and we think it could do even bigger numbers than anyone ever imagined, likely cementing Waititi's place in the future of bringing the MCU to life.

As director on the project, Waititi has been very vocal about how much fun he had working on the film, and isn't afraid to get into the nitty gritty when it comes to how many changes 'Ragnarok' went through before finding its definitive footing.

Asked about the work that went into finalising the movie and bringing together a final cut that made it to cinemas, Waititi explained to CBR: "It was very tricky. We spent a lot of time in post-production, actually, figuring that out. It’s a very hard thing to strike that balance throughout two hours and 30 minutes, however many minutes this thing is, for that much time that you’re engaging in a film."

He even laughed about the early cuts of the movie, adding: "So we failed miserably and had a funny first 10 minutes and then a super-boring rest of the movie. But that’s luckily why you have such a long time in post-production, because you can test all these things out and get the very best film that you can."

When it comes to such a big movie of this type, there are a number of elements that go into perfecting it before allowing it to reach its final stages. It's been very clear from the jump that this film would be one of the MCU's funniest, so we imagine that this was in the front of everybody's minds when working on the flick. Combining that with the need for a compelling storyline and gripping action, and we imagine it's no easy feat working behind the scenes.

Fortunately, all of that hard work seems to have paid off. 'Thor: Ragnarok' is certified fresh, and we imagine Waititi and everybody else involved are extremely proud.
