Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi seems to have had an amazing experience helming this threequel for Marvel. He’s already expressed his interest to come back and direct another Thor film, but are there any other Marvel films he’d like to tackle?

Speaking with io9, he revealed his interest in, of all things, a Black Widow movie. Here’s what he had to say.

“In all honesty, I reckon I could probably bring something pretty unique to any of the franchises. So, I’d love to see Black Widow. Black Widow as something crazy and a bit funnier than we expect it to be. Because we know her story and it’s very sullen and very dark and her history is very dark. But! What’s the funny version of that? What’s the more entertaining version of that?”

That’s honestly a surprising take. While we’d LOVE to see a Black Widow film (she’s a character Marvel has been surprisingly hesitant to explore in her own movie), our own vision is admittedly limited to pretty much what we’d expect out of it — you know more of a mid-budget crime thriller in the vein of Atomic Blonde (though hopefully a better movie than Atomic Blonde).

While this initial quote from Waititi did throw me off, the more I think it would be interesting to see a more comedic side to the stoic turn-cloak. Would you like to see Waititi make a comedic Black Widow film? Let us know down below!
