There’s a buzz about over 30 projects supposedly in the works for release in the next two years, and among them is the rumored ‘Thor 5.’ The rumors surrounding it are gaining momentum. Recently, Taika Waititi addressed the possibility of directing the fifth God of Thunder installment in the MCU. He casually dismissed it, stating it’s not currently on his schedule. With commitments like ‘Klara and the Sun’ adaptation and a live-action ‘Akira’ in the pipeline, Waititi has a busy few years ahead.

Fans collectively breathed a sigh of relief, recalling the chaotic mix of comedy, cancer, and a lackluster villain in ‘Love & Thunder.’

Now, it appears the studio has taken note of the feedback from ‘Love & Thunder.’ According to industry insider Daniel Richtman, they’re aiming for a more serious and dark tone in the yet-to-be-titled ‘Thor 5’ film and are eyeing Gareth Edwards for the director’s chair.

Edwards is recognized for helming films like ‘Monsters,’ where he wore multiple hats as the writer, cinematographer, and visual effects artist, all within a limited budget. His acclaim grew with the 2014 reboot of ‘Godzilla,’ followed by directing the standalone Star Wars film ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ in 2016.

Known for his visually stunning and atmospheric filmmaking style, Edwards has left an indelible mark in the industry.

While these details are currently speculative, there are whispers that Hemsworth is in discussions with the studio about a potential fifth installment in his standalone franchise. Despite taking a hiatus to prioritize family time, Hemsworth never completely ruled out a return as the God of Thunder in the MCU. Let’s hope he stays true to his words.
