Taika Waititi hosted a Thor: Ragnarok watch party on Instagram Live Thursday, but also exhibited some expert level trolling when providing details on his upcoming film Thor: Love and Thunder.

While sharing some images of Miek’s "new design," and concept art of the new Asgard, he “accidentally” left an opened script hiding in plain sight.

If you were to take a closer look at the "leaked" script, which Waititi foresaw you doing, you would notice that the scenes describe a scenario where Tony Stark is still alive, only to reveal that Thanos is also still alive.  

Waititi's Ragnarok viewing party included appearances by Tessa Thompson and Mark Ruffalo.

When Waititi spoke with Thompson, he actually did pull back the curtain a little bit about what we can expect to see in Love and Thunder. The filmmaker said the latest installment in the Thor franchise isn't a "run-of-the-mill" movie, and makes Ragnarok look like a "very safe" film.

"It's like 10-year-olds told us what should be in a movie and we said yes to every single thing," Waititi added. 

Waititi revealed that he's already on his fourth or fifth draft of Love and Thunder. He's unsure about reviving the concept of "Fat Thor," but feels like "it's been done." The Oscar winner hinted at the arrival of "space sharks," which are known in the Marvel comics as Star Sharks. 

Waititi said that you shouldn't expect to see the Silver Surfer, but admitted that he would "love" to have Beta Ray Bill. Unfortunately, "things are a bit up in the air." Waititi also didn't expand on what villain that Christian Bale will be playing. 

Thor: Love and Thunder is now scheduled to hit theaters on February 18, 2022.
