Kiwi director/actor Taika Waititi’s got a long list of next projects, and Thor 4 is one of them.
It’s a good day for Thor: Ragnarok and Taikapaths out there! The Hollywood Reporter recently revealed that Taika Waititi is directing the next Thor installment. According to their report, Taika signed a deal, claiming he will write and direct Thor 4.
With his fresh take on Thor getting critical acclaim, we’re excited to see where he will take the Mjolnir-wielding superhero next. In Thor: Ragnarok, his signature wit and comedic timing shined through the narrative, and placed Chris Hemsworth’s Thor in a different light, giving the Aussie actor freedom to improvise and riff around with his fellow co-stars.
We’re happy to see Taika back in MCU. Although, we’re kind of bummed out. All his other projects will have to be moved indefinitely. ICYMI, he’s also spearheading the live-action adaptation of Akira, Flash Gordon, and his personal satirical project Jojo Rabbit. In the meantime, they all have to be shelved to make room for Thor’s production.
There are no further details on Thor 4 so far. Still, we’re looking forward to Taika’s vision for MCU. After Spider-man: Far From Home sent us on an emotional feel-trip, this might be the pick-me-up Marvel fans like us need. But that might be what this director wants us to think.
