The Marvel movie “Thor: God & Thunder” was the big winner at this weekend’s box office, and apparently Taylor Swift inspired at least part of the flick.
In the film, Thor’s “chariot” is led by a group of constantly screaming goats, and director Taika Waititi says the whole thing was inspired by the viral meme featuring Taylor’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” and a screaming goat.
“They were never meant to be screaming,” the director tells “Insider.” “The goats were always going to be in there because they are in the comics, but we didn’t know how they would sound.” He explains, “Then someone in post-production found this meme of a Taylor Swift song that has screaming goats in it.”
He adds, “I didn’t even know that existed. So I hear the screaming goats and I just felt it was awesome. A lot of people think it’s me screaming. It’s not.”
