Thor: Ragnarok helmer Taika Waititi has revealed that he tried to include a character from Guardians of the Galaxy into his new movie.

In an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, the director attempted to get John C Reilly’s character, Corpsman Rhomann Dey, into the film, “but there was no real way to pull it off“.

James Gunn has also revealed that Dey is also not returning for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Filming on Thor: Ragnarok began this past summer, and is expected to wrap this month.

It opens in theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
