Taika Waititi Returning to Direct Thor 4!

Could this be one of the announcements we’ll get at SDCC this weekend? The director everyone wanted to return to the Thor franchise is officially coming back!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taika Waititi will return to direct Thor 4 for Marvel Studios. His Akira movie that was planned is now on hold as he’ll return to the world of Marvel before adapting the anime classic.

I guess we can now officially add Thor 4 to one of the Phase 4 movies. It was previously rumored when Tessa Thompson said there has been talk of a fourth movie.

Thor is now the first of the core Avengers to have a fourth solo movie, with Captain America and Iron Man out of the picture following Avengers: Endgame.
