Thor: Love and Thunder director, Taika Waititi, knows what role Chris Hemsworth should play in Our Flag Means Death. Taika Waititi plays the role of Captain Blackbear in the period comedy series by David Jenkins. The series stars Rhys Darby as Stede Bonnet, an aristocrat who shuns his family life to become a pirate. Apart from acting on the show, Taika Waititi is also the producer of the series. The show came out on March 3, 2022, on HBO Max and garnered a huge fanbase for its plot and representation of the LGBT+ community.
Taika Waititi teases Chris Hemsworth could join the show
The director of Thor: Love and Thunder has worked with Chris Hemsworth for this movie and Ragnarok. In an interview with Collider, Taika Waititi hinted that the actor could join the show. He said the actor could play “Blackbeard’s cousin Bllondebeard” and should “check his spam mail.” To this, Chris Hemsworth jokingly added, “Yeah. Obviously, all these are really cool things Taika is doing on the side. And I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s weird. I didn’t get a single text, a phone call about it.'”
The two then added that they would do anything that the other person asked them to. This could also mean acting in Our Flag Means Death together. “Any chance to come and play together and do things, it’s like — I was watching those Thor and Darryl short films. Do you know? And that was really just like to test out this new version of Thor just before Ragnarok. We did these tiny little, like Thor flatting in Australia with this character Darryl. And those were great, man, they were so good.”
Our Flag Means Death to be renewed for a second season
In June, the makers announced that the show would be renewed for a second season. “We felt the show was special while we were making it,” The creator David Jenkins said while talking about the renewal announcement. “But fans’ open-armed embrace of the inhabitants of the Revenge makes heading into a second season all the more sweet. Thanks to our team at HBO Max, our invested executive producers, and our wildly enthusiastic audience for making another voyage to this world possible.”
Though it is not yet confirmed that Chris Hemsworth would be joining Taika in the series, they will be seen together in their upcoming MCU movie.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to release on July 8 in the US.
