Marvel Studios' Thor franchise saw renewed vigor with the release of Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok.
The movie has made over $850 million worldwide, which is around 30% more than the previous Thor film.
So will there be a Thor 4? It's learned Chris Hemsworth and Taiki Waititi have discussed it.
"We gave cheers toÂ Thor 3. But it also was like what could we do with four? We could do this and this. We wereÂ throwing ideas around," Hemsworth told USA Today. "But also,Â just to work together again. That was one of the most enjoyable creative partnerships Iâve ever had."
PriorÂ to Thor 4 happening, the Odinson must first survive Thanos and The Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, which sees the Guardians of the Galaxy find Thor drifting in space following some sort of battle.
"It just depends on howÂ The AvengersÂ (movies) all wrapÂ up," HemsworthÂ said. "I finished shooting and now they are going to edit it and see how the stories play out. There are so many interwoven scenes and stories and characters. (Thor 4) is a conversation for further down the road, if it happens."
DirectorÂ Taiki WaititiÂ previously did state he is interested in doing Thor 4, but said if he does return for another one, he more considers it a "Thor: Ragnarok 2."
"Yeah, people ask me, âwould you do another one,â and for sure Iâd do another one because it wouldnât even feel like doing a fourthÂ ThorÂ film, it would just feel like doing the secondÂ RagnarokÂ film,âÂ Â WaititiÂ previously told Screen Rant. âCuz it does feel like in a way, yeah thereâs been this reinvention in an exciting way. And, I know that Chris feels a real new ownership over the character. Heâs excited, and he knows that character so well, and I know that his character inÂ Infinity WarÂ is gonna have some amazing stuff in that. So itâs exciting cuz it feels like, if Chris were to do this again it wouldnât feel like âoh itâs the eighth time Iâve doneÂ Thor,â no it will feel like the second or third time Iâve done this character,âÂ Waititi continued. âSame with Mark Ruffalo. His version of Banner is a brand new version which is way more interesting. And dare I say it, more human. Theyâre the more human versions of the character because I feel like the audience can relate to them right off the bat.â
