Taika Waititi Has Already Met With Marvel Over New Film Project


Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi has already met with Marvel Studios regarding his next MCU project 

While being one of the more recent additions to the Marvel Studios’ directors list, Taika Waititi has already cemented himself as one of the MCU‘s best and brightest filmmakers following his efforts with last year’s Thor: Ragnarok. Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder received the much needed refreshment that fans, and frankly the studio itself, had been hoping for and Waititi’s comedic approach worked a charm. While a sequel has not yet been announced, although presumably we’ll find out more by the time Avengers 4 rolls around, it’s widely thought that Waititi will return for another Asgardian adventure.

Around the time of Ragnarok‘s release, Marvel had indicated that it would mark the end of Thor’s trilogy (story wise) but given that the third instalment was by far and away the most well received Thor movie to date it we could simply see a continuation of the ongoing Asgard narrative which has also been carried through both Avengers 3 and 4.

A new report from THR has confirmed that Waititi recently met with Marvel Studios to talk about a future collaboration, although the specifics of the project are not yet known. At this stage, the future of the MCU as a whole seems to be shrouded in mystery while we patiently wait for Avengers 4, but surely once released we’ll have a better understanding of the terrain and what sorts of film titles Waititi could be working on.

It seems likely that the meeting would have been about Waititi coming back to direct Thor 4 given the huge success of Ragnarok, although it could well be that Marvel wants the 43-year-old to helm another project. Perhaps the most talked about upcoming MCU title in recent weeks has been Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (what with losing its director and all) and Waititi’s wacky sci-fi style displayed in Thor 3 could certainly work well with the Guardians.

We’ll keep you updated with more information on Marvel talks with Taika Waititi as it happens.
