Chris Hemsworth truly made a name for himself by portraying the role of Thor, the God of Thunder in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. He already has four solo movies to his name and now ‘Thor 5’ will not feature Taika Watiti as a director.

Taika Waititi, the acclaimed director of “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Thor: Love and Thunder,” recently revealed that he won’t be at the helm for ‘Thor 5’ – the next adventure in the God of Thunder series.

While speaking with Business Insider, Taika Watiti confirmed that he will not be directing ‘Thor 5.’ Watiti noted that his incredibly busy schedule full of other projects simply won’t allow him to direct the next Thor movie.

I know that I won’t be involved…I’m going to concentrate on these other films that I’ve signed on for. So that’s six, seven years gone. I’d imagine another ‘Thor’ would be a lot sooner than that…But I love Marvel, I love working with them. I love Chris.


I would never feel like they are cheating on me. We’re in an open relationship, and it’s like if they want to see other people, I’m happy for that. I’d still get back into bed with them one day.”

Chris Hemsworth also previously noted that he wanted to do ‘Thor 5’ only if his character received a revision, as Hemsworth had added that he felt Thor had become too much of a goofy character in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder.’ We’ll have to see when the film will release.
