“That was a surprise for me too. I’m not kidding,” Waititi said of Marvel, confirming Thor’s return. “I saw it in the theater and I was like, ‘Oh shit. For real?’
“Even Chris was like ‘What?’ But of course he’ll be back. He’s the best character. I mean, I might be a little biased, but he’s the most fun to watch.”
He added: “Now I don’t know what would come next. I would definitely do one, but only if Chris does it.
“But it would have to be something surprising and unexpected for me to want to do it. For example, what would the new take be? The battles and all fights are okay, but I would like something that felt unexpected when it comes to the story. Like just making a $5 million movie with no fights, just Thor on a road trip. As Nebraska.”
