Taika Waititi to direct his second Thor movie, so Akira will have to wait

Taika Waititi directed Thor: Ragnarok, which starred Chris Hemsworth and came out in 2017.

Director Taika Waititi will direct a fourth Thor movie, his representative confirmed on Tuesday. Waititi directed 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, and the star of that film, Chris Hemsworth, is expected to return as the God of Thunder/Avenger. There’s no date yet, and very little additional info, about the new Thor film.

In addition to directing and writing Thor: Ragnarok, Waititi played the alien Korg in both that film and in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.

But what’s good news for Thor fans may be disappointing info for fans of the Japanese manga Akira. Waititi was set to direct a 2021 film based on that manga, according to The Hollywood Reporter, but the Thor news will delay Akira “indefinitely.”
