Taika Waititi will return to write and direct the fourth installment of Marvel's Thor. Considering the success of Thor: Ragnarok, it makes sense for Marvel to get Taika Waititi for Thor 4.

Thor Ragnarok became a massive success, grossing 854 million globally in 2017 which made the hammer wielding superhero even more popular.

Taika Waititi is expected to team up with Chris Hemsworth to reprise his role as the god of thunder. Thor was last seen in The Avengers: Endgame teaming up with Earth's mightiest heroes to defeat Thanos. The movie ended with Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy joining together for a quest to find Gamora, hinting that Chris Hemsworth's character may be seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Warner Brothers's long-in-development “Akira” movie adaptation has been delayed indefinitely due to Waititi's project with Thor, and hopes that “Akira” will resume production after he's done with Thor 4.

Waititi’s next project is JoJo Rabbit and it will be released on October 18th 2019.
