Ragnarok’ wig came at an astronomical cost

Tessa Thompson is a national treasure worth her weight in gold. 

And that’s basically what her Thor: Ragnorok wig cost, according to a new Huffington Post interview with her Sorry to Bother You director Boots Riley. 

The shoot for the surreal indie comedy co-starring Thompson apparently conflicted with Marvel’s reshoots for Ragnorok. But the two characters couldn’t have had more different hair styles, with Valkyrie rocking a pragmatic yet elegant flowing ponytail, and Detroit slaying with short, colorful ringlets.

So in order to make the simultaneous shoots work, Disney decided to spring for a hairpiece that put its enormous budget to good use.

The $10,000 wig (and no, that’s not a smudge on your screen, but indeed a five-figure number) did the trick. But reportedly, Disney wasn’t too happy about the whole thing.

Riley said he later tried to apologize to Thor: Ragnorok director Taika Waititi, who gave him a totally Korg response. 

“He was like, ‘It’s not my money!” Riley recalled.

Never change, Taika. You are also a treasure as valuable as a million Marvel-funded wigs.
