Taika Waititi is oficially returning to direct a fourth Thor movie, Hollywood Reporter confirms.
The Thor 3 director has officially inked a deal that will see him revisit the MCU and continue Thor’s journey.
We left Chris Hemsworth’s character at the end of Avengers: Endgame with him set to join the Guardians of the Galaxy in galactic exploration, having entrusted control of the now earth-bound Asgard to Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson.
We have no idea when this film will take place, but more details may be unveiled in Marvel Studios’ panel at San Deigo Comic Con this Saturday.
For now, we’ll have to wait and see whether Thor will feature in Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3, set to be directed by James Gunn after the Disney big guns reversed their decision to fire him after controversial tweets were found from the directors past.
Taika returning to the MCU means that his adaptation of Akira at Warner Bros has been delayed. It was set to debut May 21st 2021, but looks set to be pushed back after script rewrites and other issues.
Thor 4 has no official release date as of yet.
