Music is obviously a big part of filmmaking, and with films like Guardians of the Galaxy, they can prove to be pivotal aspects of the story. While we can’t say Thor: Ragnarok will have anything on the level of Guardians, there was one song that was instrumental to the film getting made as it is.

That song is Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” which was featured in the first trailer for the flick. It turns out that the song was more than just a clever pull from the marketing team, but rather a part of director Taika Waititi’s original pitch to the studio.

Speaking with Screen Rant, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said:

“Filmmakers sometimes will say, using clips of other movies, ‘Here’s what I have in mind.’ And sometimes they’re not good. Most of the times, they’re okay. His was amazing, and was scored to that Led Zeppelin song. So from the beginning, that song kind of defined what Taika was going to do with this. That it’s in the trailer, that it’s in the film – all from that first meeting, and from one of his first instincts of this movie, is very impressive.”

While I personally haven’t seen the film yet, the song certainly does seem to sell the spirit of the whole deal. It’s great to hear that it was such a crucial part of the movie’s early stages.

Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3, 2017.
