Thor: Ragnarok was a success. And now Marvel wants Taika Waititi to direct the next movie of the character.
Good news and bad news at the same time. And Marvel is determined to offer us a Thor 4 with Taika Waititi as director. In fact, the contract is already signed, according to exclusive information of The Hollywood Reporter. Now, along the way, something very important will be lost: for the moment, the adaptation of the Japanese manga Akira will remain in limbo. The reason, logically, that both productions are crossing.
In fact, the premiere of Akira was scheduled for May 21, 2021. And after Waititi has been looking for talent around the world to define the cast, it has finally been stalled. Precisely because of the coincidence between the production dates of both projects.
In any case, you can be calm. According to some sources, Warner is willing to keep Waititi in the long term so that, when finished with Thor 4, he can return to Akira's project.
As for the film itself, it is not strange that Marvel has opted for Waititi, taking into account the impressive reception that Thor had: Ragnarok. And not only at the level of collection, with more than 854 million dollars worldwide, but also by critics.
We do not know much about the film, but Chris Hemsworth is expected to repeat his role as the thunder god of Asgard.
