Thor Ragnarok: Taika Waititi Reveals His Alternate Post-Credits Scene

Thor: Ragnarok is currently blowing up in theaters, and like any Marvel movie, it contains one mid-credits and post-credits scene. Of course, there are always other options for whatever scenes play after the credits, and director Taika Waititi reveals what didn't make the cut.


The original after-credits scene had Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster collecting himself after his ship crashes on Sakaar, but Waititi told Collider that an alternate scene would have the Grandmaster and Topaz sneaking onto the ship full of Asgardians on their way to Earth. He explains:

"We were determined to not have too many of them. The thing [with Loki and Thor], that was the thing we did in reshoots. It was a last minute decision. And the other thing at the end, with The Grandmaster, was something we shot on Gold Coast that was something I planned for a long time. It was either going to be that or it was going to be Topaz and Grandmaster stowing away on the ship at the end."

That could be on the DVD in the deleted scenes, those two in the crowd of the Asgardians and he pushes through and goes, ‘I've never heard of this Earth place but… We got to keep a low profile.' And they kind of put these blankets over their heads and disband into the crowd."

Thinking about it, it wouldn't make sense for the Grandmaster to find himself on the ship full of revolutionists, and it's a fine ending to watch him try and piece back together his power after his gladiators left his arena. One part of me wishes that he should have just ended up with his supposed brother The Collector who we met in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Based on the mid-credits scene, though, it looks like the Asgardians won't find their way to Earth, what with Thanos' huge-ass ship tracking them down. Based on the leaked Infinity War trailer, the Guardians of the Galaxy run into Thor floating around in space. Does this mean that Thanos outright destroyed that ship full of refugees? Seeing that Marvel movies usually don't have stakes, the people are probably safe.
