It looks like Marvel are close to signing a very interesting choice to direct Thor’s third big screen outing.

Taika Waititi, director of Flight of the Conchords and What We Do in the Shadows is currently in talks with Marvel to direct Thor: Ragnarok.

It seems that other choices were Zombieland’s Ruben Fleischer, We’re The Millers’ Rawson Marshall Thurber and Goosebumps’ Rob Letterman. If he gets the gig he’ll join Kenneth Branagh and Alan Taylor as a Thor director.

We’ll keep you posted if he signs on the dotted line…

Marvel Studios will release Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017 in 3D/2D theaters and IMAX.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
