Washington D.C. [USA], Aug.15 (ANI): Director Taika Waititi, who is all set to bring his upcoming movie 'Thor: Ragnarok' to fans, wanted the famous British rock band Queen to score the music of the film. According to Entertainment Weekly, Waititi revealed that he even had a dream composer for 'Ragnarok'. The director said, "I've often said if Freddie Mercury were alive, I would have asked Queen to do the soundtrack. It just has that feel: it's a cool bold, colorful cosmic adventure. And it just needed to be fun." The 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' helmer also shared that for 'Ragnarok' he drew inspiration from famous illustrator Jack Kirby's work. He told that he loved the "trippy vibe of the Thor comics". Adding, "Another influence for me was Flash Gordon. I grew up loving that movie." Helmed by Taika Waititi, the movie stars Chris Hemsworth in the titular role, with Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston, and Mark Ruffalo in pivotal roles. The flick hits the theatres on November 3. (ANI)
