Speaking to the New York Times, Waititi, whose Thor threequel is receiving rave reviews from critics before its global opening, made it clear that his style and narrative ambition wouldn't fit what Lucasfilm envisions for its stories.

Marvel and DC Comics both have movies coming out in November. "We improvised a lot of the movie". And you're absolutely right, it does seem more like a comedy, doesn't it?

The two franchises have two very different tones, so it makes sense that Waititi isn't interested in focusing on a project that won't let his personality ooze out. The result is goofy and wholesome, with Waititi holding court on his native country's penchant for re-gifting, bad internet handles, and briefly riffing on Akira (which is a nice tease for anyone excited by the news that he might be in talks to direct an adaptation of the manga). The new clip features Thor, Loki and The Grandmaster.

It will be followed by Avengers: Infinity War next spring, with Black Panther also generating huge hype ahead of its February release.
