Avengers: Endgame might be right around the corner, but that hasn't stopped fans from looking ahead to what might come after. Obviously so have Marvel, and while the current Phase 4 slate includes Spider-Man: Far From Home, Black Widow, The Eternals and Shang-Chi, there is one project yet to be announced that fans are eager to see - Thor 4.
All Marvel movies bar Avengers have so far stuck to trilogies, but there was always the sense that the Thor series had only recently come into its own with Ragnarok, which was directed by Taika Waititi. While Endgame is set to conclude the journeys of both Iron Man and Captain America, it's clear that the Odinson still has plenty of fuel left in the tank, and according to Tessa Thompson, it seems as though Marvel may agree.
While speaking to the LA Times, Thompson - who plays Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok and is set to reprise the role in Endgame - revealed that Marvel Studios had apparently been discussing the prospect of a fourth Thor film.
"I heard that a pitch has happened for [another Thor film]. I don't know how real that intel is, but I hear that the pitch has happened. I think the idea is Taika would come back."
News of a fourth film being talked about is sure to get Marvel fans excited, especially if Waititi ends up returning. The Hunt for the Wilderpeople director breathed new life into the Thor series with Ragnarok, and though we still have no idea of how Endgame will leave Chris Hemsworth's Asgardian, one would hope Marvel plan to retain the actor's services for the foreseeable future.
