Ragnarok Director Taika Waititi Game For Another Thor Movie


With Ragnarok almost upon us, comic book fans continue to pose the big questions about Thor‘s future – or lack thereof – in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A female-led reboot has been touted as one potential avenue for Marvel to explore, which has already gained the backing of Kevin Feige (kinda) and former Dredd star Karl Urban, who plays the part of Skurge in Taika Waititi’s critically-adorned threequel. But what about the chances of Waititi circling back to helm another project for Marvel Studios? Turns out it’s not out of the question, after the New Zealand director told Radio Times that he’d “love to do another Thor” movie.

First spotted by CBM, Waititi began by singling out Marvel Studios for its support, not to mention the sheer amount of creative freedom that he and his team enjoyed on set (“They kind of gave me a lot of free reign, but also had a lot of ideas as well.”).

As for the million-dollar question, the filmmaker admitted that he wouldn’t think twice about collaborating with Marvel in the future, and considering the amount of praise pointed in Thor: Ragnarok‘s direction, we imagine Kevin Feige and Co. feel the same way.

Per Radio Times:

I would like to come back and work with Marvel any time, because I think they’re a fantastic studio, and we had a great time working together. And they were very supportive of me, and my vision. They kind of gave me a lot of free reign, but also had a lot of ideas as well. A very collaborative company. I’d love to do another Thor film, because I feel like I’ve established a really great thing with these guys, and friendship. And I don’t really like any of the other characters.

Said to be hurtling toward a huge opening weekend – think north of $100 million domestic and you’ll begin to get an idea of Ragnarok‘s sky-high projections – Taika Waititi’s Thor movie is due to hit theaters on November 3rd.
