    In the latest THR report about Volume 3 they confirm they met with Taika but dont say what it was for but reading between the lines it wouldn't be surprising if it was for Volume 3. The with good reason bit is why I think its for Volume 3.

    I think Marvel will try to keep GOTG Vol 3 on track for a May 2020 release since I don't think the productions for for BW solo and DS 2 are likely not far enough along to meet that kind of release date and Marvel doesn't want to give up that early May date. I hope if they bring Waititi back, it's for another Thor film, not GOTG.

    I think Taika would fit GOTG 3 more than he does another Thor film, but if it is for another Thor film I would love that as well. All signs point to GOTG 3 though, which he'd knock out of the park no questions asked.

    I've been big on the idea of a fourth Thor movie since it would help erase Thor 2 from my mind plus Thor is more popular than ever now.

    I would love to see him for a Thor 4, but GOTG Vol. 3 would be reassuring.

    4 potential outcomes of Taika's meeting with Marvel.

    Thor 4
    I would love if Taika came back for Thor 4. Taika and Chris Hemwsworth really want to do a "sequel to Ragnarok and both have already discussed some ideas about it.

    GOTG3
    Taika coming in for GOTG3 is the logical choice. He is a perfect match for the material and could really do a great job with those already established characters. His character work in Ragnarok was great and the interactions between those characters really shined through.

    GOTG3 with Thor
    Best of both worlds. We know that the third Guardians will feature Adam Warlock and Thor has a rich history with that particular character. Also and as seen in IW, Thor would fit right in with the Guardians...

    New Project
    Something cosmic... And now that Marvel lost a singular director like James Gunn, it would be wise to secure the other singular voices in their roster...

    They were asking him if he'd oversee the Cosmic side of the MCU.

    Would he do it? I mean, he had a life before working for Disney. What if the mighty House of Mouse ever finds out he made JOKES in the past? Working for MS now is a risk for every filmmaker, I mean, Taika made a movie about vampires, can this blatant dabbling in the occult be a sign for a secret satanism thing? I'm sure Horn and Iger don't want that sensitive subject to come up once the Cyber Nazis attack again.

    I figured this would be the way they were planning on going forward anyway, especially given the events of Ragnarok and Infinity War and how well those characters work together.

    I would love nothing more than for Thor to join the Guardians for Vol 3; at least for part of the film. He's got to be wanting to find the rest of his people; maybe there's places that he simply can't get too with his new hammer?


    My only concern (for a full feature) is that he'd maybe steal the limelight a little from the Guardians. I would like for him to leave with them at the end of Avengers 4 or something, and then as stated, be with them for part of Vol 3 before going off to do his own thing; maybe finding Korg in the process? Depending what happens with Banner/Hulk (if there's a split) Hulk could join them too?

    This option would be awesome, wheb Hemsworth posted a picture of Thor with the Guardians titled "Asgardians of The Galaxy" I felt like he was foreshadowing this.

    You mean this tweet? Seems it was posted before Gunn's firing. And just promo for Infinity War but I wonder if they were already planning this but this whole mess has moved up the timeline.

    Eternals maybe? Kind of don’t want a Thor 4. Move onto other characters.

    Tails would be well suited to GotG 3 with Thor and his comedy would be more appreciated there.

    I would love him to do Eternals, Fantastic Four or Nextwave (long shot but he’d totally get it and nail the tone of the film). I am so over Thor, he’s had his many moments. Even showing up in GotG3 is too much for me.

    Thor was a secondary character until Ragnarok and Infinity War, he seems to be just now coming into his own.
