New behind the scenes images for Thor: Ragnarok arrive online

As production continues on Thor: Ragnarok in Australia, both director Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shadows) and actress Tessa Thompson (Creed) have been offering some peeks from behind the scenes. First up is Thompson, who posted a picture of her character Valkyrie's sword to her Instagram page.

Thompson's caption for the picture also offers a look at how much fun she and the rest of the cast are having making the new Thor movie. "Day 18 update: I have a lot of bruises. And suddenly abs from laughing so much. And I never want to not have a sword again". She has been posting about hard work and early starts, but it all seems to be in service of something ultimately enjoyable.

And though the movie promises to be as epic and dramatic as you might imagine from something that sees the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Chris Hemsworth's Thor meet up in space, a battle for the future of Asgard and appearances from the likes of Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button), Jeff Goldblum (The Grand Budapest Hotel) and Karl Urban (Star Trek Into Darkness), Waititi is also bringing his own sense of humour to the adventure. Part of that was expressed during the Marvel panel at this year's San Diego Comic Con, to which the director sent a comic short purporting to show what Thor was up to during Captain America: Civil War. It has yet to show up anywhere – hopefully as part of the Blu-ray or download release – but part of the film included Thor's continuing investigation into the Infinity Stones and the vision he had during Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015). Waititi posted a still from the short focusing on Thanos to his own Instagram account.

Thor: Ragnarok will be out here on October 27, 2017.
