With Thor: Ragnarok tearing up the international market eyes are beginning to turn to its North American release on November 3rd. Director Taika Waititi is still doing the rounds of press to promote the film and talk is all about the potential for his return.
In an interview with Screen Rant Waititi discussed his feelings on Thor 4 or should that be 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].”
Would you like to see Waititi return for another film in the franchise?
