Thor: Ragnarok, the latest entry in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, finds the god of thunder (portrayed by Chris Hemsworth) in a desperate fight to prevent the destruction of his home planet, Asgard. To complement AC's deep dive into the making of the movie with cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe, ASC, AEC; director Taika Waititi; and a number of their key collaborators — coverage that will appear in the December issue — we here present a visual walk-through of production.
