The movie hasn’t come out yet, but many are already calling Thor: Ragnarok a big success. Currently, it’s sitting on Rotten Tomatoes at 98 percent, with 57 positive reviews out of a total 58 reviews. For a character that’s kind of had a hit-or-miss track record in the MCU, this is definitely a big deal. Clearly, the work director Taika Waititi did was a good match for Marvel Studios.
With that in mind, Radio Times asked if he would be willing to come back to work for the studio, which has been known for its very specific universe vision.
“I would like to come back and work with Marvel any time, because I think they’re a fantastic studio, and we had a great time working together. And they were very supportive of me, and my vision. They kind of gave me a lot of free reign, but also had a lot of ideas as well. A very collaborative company. I’d love to do another Thor film, because I feel like I’ve established a really great thing with these guys, and friendship. And I don’t really like any of the other characters.”
Like Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, Waititi seems to be very much in that sweet spot of directors. They have their own unique vision, but their visions fall so well within Marvel’s own creative sensibilities (though not necessarily vision) that it allows them to give the filmmakers free reign.
We’ve seen in the past with filmmakers like Jon Favreau and Edgar Wright, where the studio needed to sort of take control, but with the past handful of films, they really seem to have their director-studio dynamic worked out.
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3, 2017.
