With (SPOILERS) Cap retired and Tony Stark dead, Thor is now the main character of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The guy has been through a lot since he first appeared on theater screens in 2011. Within just a decade, he came to Earth, lost his father, lost his brother but got him back then lost him again (and maybe will get him back yet again?), lost an eye, got a new eye, lost a hammer, got a new hammer, lost his hair, gained a gut, lost his home, and gained a new one. That’s a lot for a person, god or not.

But shooting all of those movies, from the celebrated Thor: Ragnarok to the we-don’t-need-to-talk-about-it Thor: The Dark World, a lot of interesting things happened behind the scenes. There are also some fun Easter eggs left for fans to spot and annoyingly point out to their friends while watching Chris Hemsworth chuck a hammer at a monster.

Here are some fun facts and Easter eggs hidden within the Thor franchise.

Improv

THOR BTS FACTS AND EASTER EGGS THOR: RAGNAROK A LOT OF THE MOVIE WAS MADE UP ON THE SPOT. Marvel gave Taika Waititi a lot of leeway, so he followed his usual happy-go-lucky filmmaking style, which includes telling the actors what to say just as he's shooting. According to him, probably 80% of the movie was improvised this way. CRACKED.COM

Flash Gordon

THOR BTS FACTS AND EASTER EGGS THOR: RAGNAROK THE MOVIE WAS PARTLY INSPIRED BY FLASH GORDON. With the bright colors and synthy-rock soundtrack, it's not too big of a surprise that director Taika Waititi used the 1980 cult sci-fi film as a blueprint. CRACKED.COM

Thor's Hair

THOR BTS FACTS AND EASTER EGGS THOR: THE DARK WORLD CHRIS HEMSWORTH SPENT A YEAR GROWING OUT HIS HAIR. Hemsworth wore a wig for the first movie, but grew out his mane for the second film- making Thor's hair the one thing The Dark World did better than its predecessor. CRACKED.COM

The Infinity Gauntlet

THOR BTS FACTS AND EASTER EGGS THOR ODIN HAS AN INFINITY GAUNTLET AMONG HIS TREASURES. It was a nice Easter egg, until we saw Thanos wearing the Gauntlet in the post-credits scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron. To fix this, Hela exposed Odin's Gauntlet as a fake. THOR: RAGNAROK CRACKED.COM

Benedict Cumberbatch

THOR BTS FACTS AND EASTER EGGS THOR: THE DARK WORLD BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH TURNED DOWN A PART. Cumberbatch politely declined to portray Malekith, saying he'd rather hold out for something a bit more juicy. The gamble paid off, and he got the role of Doctor Strange years later. CRACKED.COM
