There are over 30 projects rumored to be in development and scheduled to be released sometime in the next two years, and ‘Thor 5’ is one of them, at least according to the rumors that are getting louder and louder. Recently, Taika Waititi commented on the possibility of him helming the fifth God of Thunder movie in the MCU, and he shrugged it off, saying that it’s really not on his schedule at the moment. He will be quite busy in the next few years prioritizing his adaptation of ‘Klara and the Sun,’ and a live-action adaptation of ‘Akira.’
Fans all over the world sighed a collective sigh of relief, remembering the circus that was ‘Love & Thunder,’ an overly comedic movie that dealt with cancer and one of the most terrible villains in Marvel Comics.
Now it seems that the studio did learn something about the feedback they got from ‘Love & Thunder’ as, according to industry insider Daniel Richtman, they are looking to set a more serious and dark tone for so far untitled ‘Thor 5’ movie, and are looking to nab Gareth Edwards as the director.
Edwards is known for directing films such as ‘Monsters,’ which he also wrote, shot, and did the visual effects for on a limited budget. He gained widespread recognition for directing the 2014 reboot of ‘Godzilla’ and later directed the stand-alone Star Wars film ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ in 2016.
Edwards is known for setting visually stunning and atmospheric filmmaking style.
These are all rumors at the moment, but allegedly, Hemsworth is also in talks with the studio to make a fifth installment to his own stand-alone franchise. Hemsworth took a break from acting to prioritize spending time with his family but never ruled out the possibility of returning as the God of Thunder in the MCU. Hopefully, he makes good on his word.
