With the Marvel universe ever-expanding, the company is on a seemingly never-ending search for the right talent to put the movies together. Now they may have found one of the pieces for Thor: Ragnarok, as TheWrap reports that Taika Waititi is in talks to direct.
Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer was also apparently in contention, but Marvel decided to go for Waititi, who’s best know for indie fare such as Eagle vs Shark, Boy, What We Do in the Shadows, as well as being part of the team behind Flight of the Conchords.. It’s interesting that both men are known for being able to handle both comedy and drama, which may give a hint at Ragnarok’s tone.
Assuming be sign on Waititi will be calling the shots on set next year, with Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Jaimie Alexander all known to be returning. It’ll be in cinemas July 2017.
