‘Never Doing That Again’: Taika Waititi Hinting MCU Exit After Thor: Love and Thunder Has Fans Rattled

We’re already halfway through the year 2022, and we’ve seen a lot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s movies and shows including Moon Knight, Doctor Strange 2, and also Ms. Marvel. Chris Hemsworth’s future with the franchise was unknown following Avengers: Endgame in 2019, but this hero now seems to be a key figure in Marvel’s near future. Marvel Studios is ready to add the fourth chapter to Thor’s solo saga with Thor: Love and Thunder, which will be released in just a few weeks, largely thanks to director Taika Waititi.

Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi explored the possibility of developing a fifth film on the God of Thunder in an interview with Fandango. When asked if he has considered making his films into a trilogy, Waititi stated that he hasn’t even considered it, given how tough they are to create. He joked about how frequently he’s been enticed back into projects he only intended to do once, joking about the money and Oscar possibility that comes with them.

“I haven’t thought about it as part of a new trilogy, because every time I make a film, I think, ‘I’m never doing that again…’ because they’re just too hard. There’s any film and I’ve done it eight times now. Eight times I’ve said, ‘I think I’m just going to pack it in. I had a good run.’ And then sure enough get lured back in with a Yankee dollar. Lured back in by them cookies… and them Oscars.”

Taika Waititi, who rejuvenated the God of Thunder and has since become one of the MCU’s most popular filmmakers, would undoubtedly thrive with a potential fifth solo film. When you consider his critical acclaim and dedication to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole, he’s someone who fans can’t bet against in this unfolding story. However, Taika Waititi dodged the question saying ‘I’m never doing that again…’ because they’re just too hard’ hinting in the direction of him wanting to move out.

Thor: Love and Thunder hit theaters on July 8, 2022.
