Thor: Ragnarok‘s Tessa Thompson Talks Post-Credits Scenes
Tessa Thompson (Westworld) who plays Valkyrie, spoke to Collider about the insane amount of reshoots that took place after filming. In a pretty much unprecedented move, there were two weeks of additional photography with over 500 setups.
In addressing the reshoots, Thompson explained that they actually shot the after-credits scenes. She told Collider:
“Dude, we killed it. I mean hopefully. We did so many setups, and also what was so exciting is you could see like at the end of the day it would get cut in… There’s two characters in the film that potentially have a fight scene, and some of the reshoots were just adding. So it wasn’t like reshooting stuff, a lot of it was just additional photography or like shooting tags which may or may not have included cameos from elsewhere.”
It is not unusual that they were shot during additional photography as Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios President, has previously noted that this is something that happens quite often.
Reshoots took place in Atlanta, at the same soundstages where Infinity War was wrapping filming, meaning fans can hope for some pretty incredible cameos.
