Recent reports suggest that Thor: Love and Thunder’s director Taika Waititi doesn’t want to do a Thor 5 right now. In an interview with Uproxx, the director discussed his new MCU hit. During the discussion, a question was asked about where to take Thor and what’s the next plan.

According to his words, it’s going to dive into some crazy storyline to lure the director back to the domain after Thor: Love and Thunder. We all know that in the world of Marvel, things can be changed anytime, but it truly seems like a sequel is more than a year to drop. However, unknown reports also suggest that Thor will be possibly back before his next solo.

Chris Hemsworth also told Australia TODAY about the movie. He revealed that this movie was Taika Waititi’s at his most spirited move.

“It was Taika at his craziest. Taika, normally, is kind of at an 11, so you can do the math there. He described it as like he’d been given the keys to the kingdom, and someone said, ‘Here if a seven-year-old was making a movie, what would you do?’ He said, ‘Well, I want to put this in it. I want to do this. I want to try this.’ And everything he suggested, I said yes to, and then we had this insane film in front of us.”

Taika Waititi said:

“It’s just got to be something that’s at least, that no one expects. With Love and Thunder, we were like, what would be good after Ragnarok? What could we do? And I was thinking, well, I like kind of like playing with the fans a little bit.”

“And I was like, the thing that no Thor fan really wants to see is the word ‘love’ in a Thor title. ‘I’m Thor, and I go out and smash things and stuff.’ No, but Thor being in love, the idea of love surrounding Thor, is actually pretty amazing. And there’s a character I want to see.”

Marvel Studios dropped the feel of Thor: Love and Thunder:

“The film finds Thor on a journey, unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg, and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.”

Thor: Love and Thunder is now playing in theaters.
