Taika Waititi Does Not Want To Direct Thor 4; Wants Thor: Ragnarok 2

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi whose film is already rocking the international box office said that a sequel to this film would feel less like Thor 4 and more like Thor: Ragnarok 2.

Even though Thor: Ragnarok is yet to hit the domestic theaters, the film has become a major hit overseas, with critics raving the film. Thor 3 is holding a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics are terming Wattiti’s film as Marvel Studios best production so far. The initial tracking report from Deadline reveals that this third installment in the Thor franchise might have a grand opening of $100 million or more in U.S/Canada, and this would undoubtedly e the best opening that any Thor film has ever had.

While talking to Screenrant, Watiti spoke up about his opinion in doing Thor 4. He said if ever he had to make a sequel, it would be more like making Thor: Ragnarok 2. “Yeah, people ask me, ‘would you do another one,’ and for sure I’d do another one because it wouldn’t even feel like doing a fourth Thor film, it would just feel like doing the second Ragnarok film. Cuz it does feel like in a way, yeah there’s been this reinvention in an exciting way … So it’s exciting cuz it feels like, if Chris were to do this again it wouldn’t feel like ‘oh it’s the eighth time I’ve done Thor,’ no it will feel like the second or third time I’ve done this character. Same with Mark Ruffalo,” said the talented director.

Reinventing the Thor character of Chris Hemsworth and also bringing to the people a more smarter Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) was a good decision for both the director and Marvel Studios. So, it will be interesting if Watiti was to be involved in the making of Thor 4 as he will definitely have a lot more to offer than what we have already seen.

Thor: Ragnarok, which will release in North American theaters on November 3, 2017 stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Karl Urban as Skurge, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
