Taika Waititi Wants To Make Ragnarok 2, Not Thor 4

If the overseas box office is any indication, director Taika Waititi has reinvigorated the god of thunder’s film franchise with Thor: Ragnarok. While he’d be up for helming another Thor film, it has more to do with the theoretical movie being a sequel to Thor: Ragnarok than being Thor 4.

“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,” Waititi told Screen Rant. “Cuz it does feel like in a way, yeah there’s been this reinvention in an exciting way. And, I know that Chris feels a real new ownership over the character. He’s excited and he knows that character so well, and I know that his character in Trinity War is gonna have some amazing stuff in that.

“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,” Waititi continued. “Same with Mark [Ruffalo]. His version of Banner is a brand new version which is way more interesting. And dare I say it, more human. They’re the more human versions of the character because I feel like the audience can relate to them right off the bat.”
