Taika Waititi to Direct 'Thor 4' (Exclusive)
JULY 16, 2019 10:37AM by Borys Kit

Meanwhile, development concerns force Warners to push back 'Akira.'

Taika Waititi is returning to the many worlds of Thor.
Waititi has inked a deal to write and direct a follow-up to his 2017 smash, Thor: Ragnarok.

But his boarding of what would be a fourth installment of the Marvel franchise comes at a cost: Warner Bros.' long-gestating adaptation of Japanese manga Akira.
That project, which was penciled for a May 21, 2021, release and had Waititi testing actors in a worldwide search for talent, is being put on pause indefinitely as the two projects' production dates began to bump up against one another. Script development concerns caused Akira to push back its shooting start, and while some of those have been addressed, say sources, the dates were now too close for comfort.

Warners' next step for Akira is unclear. Several sources have said that Warners is keen on keeping Waititi involved for the long term and hopes to see him pick up Akira after Thor 4.
Waititi brought his own stamp to the Thor franchise with Ragnarok, infusing the movie with an idiosyncratic wit evident in his previous work like What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Audiences responded to the tune of almost $854 million worldwide while critics’ raves put the movie at 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The move also rejuvenated what had been a rare declining franchise performer for Marvel.

Chris Hemsworth is expected to reprise his career-defining role as the Asgardian god of thunder.

Next up for Waititi is Jojo Rabbit, a unique Nazi-era satire he directed for Fox Searchlight, which opens Oct. 18. Scarlett Johansson stars in the picture alongside Waititi, who portrays a boy's imaginary version of Adolf Hitler.

He is repped by CAA and Manage-ment.

I was hoping at least one of your 10 million followers would agree with me that Endgame was a mess. I think this one time I may have to admit that the biggest problem with the movie was me. :(

I think a lot of people acknowledge that Endgame is kind of a mess, but it's enjoyable and satisfying nonetheless.

Yep, but @Pigdango having issues like that is very on brand.
You’re never going to let go that I didn’t like Pixels, are you?

Also, don’t forget that time proving me right is also very much on brand for me. What I was saying is I think Endgame MIGHT be a very rare exception where time doesn’t prove me right. We’ll see...

But it had laugh out loud moments....

Ok Nostrapiggy, Endgame is $6.5 million away from Avatar. Can it do it? You have said no... I think Disney might force it via sheer will.

It made $4.75 million domestic last week so it's more possible than I previously thought. Might have been closer if they didn't rerelease it while still in theaters.

I said they couldn't do it without an international re-release, which they did.

They will get there now. Disney has already started fudging numbers. Look at the adjustment of +24.4% vs their estimate last weekend.

A couple more accounting errors and they're there.

Not sure why I was tagged,

But Akira on hold, good.

Thor 4 by Tikiman, good.

Please send money to my pateron for partaking in my opinions.

I guess we'll never get to see the adventures of Testudo and Canada.

The fact that Chris Hemsworth apparently likes Kevin Smith enough to appear in his movie knocks him down a bit on the hot scale. He was a 10, but now I only see him as a 9.9.

No matter what he does for his films, I like Kevin Smith.
