Following their collaboration on Thor: Ragnarok, it seems that star Chris Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi have developed quite the friendship. Speaking to Elite Daily, Hemsworth revealed that the two spent New Year’s Eve together in Australia, during which they began tossing around ideas for a fourth solo outing for the God of Thunder.
“We gave cheers to Thor 3,” said Hemsworth. “But it also was like what could we do with four? We could do this and this. We were throwing ideas around. But also, just to work together again. That was one of the most enjoyable creative partnerships I’ve ever had.”
Waititi has already expressed his interest in returning for another Thor movie, while Hemsworth recently revealed that he’s keen to renew his contract with Marvel Studios, with his deal having expired after Avengers 4.
So far, we’re yet to get a fourth instalment of any Marvel franchise (Avengers will be the first), but given the critical and commercial success of Thor: Ragnarok, don’t be surprised if we see Hemsworth and Waititi reuniting for another outing.
