While promoting Ant-Man in June, Kevin Feige stated that we should hear announcements of Directors for upcoming Marvel films by the end of the summer. This statement holds The Wrap announced that Flight Of the Concords Director Taika Waititi, is in final negotiations to direct Thor: Ragnarok.
The third installment of Thor is the next Marvel film after Doctor Strange and Spider-Man. The former and the latter have already landed Scott Derrickson and Jon Watts, so it makes sense that Marvel has begun making offers for Directors to come aboard next the Thor.
TheWrap states that Waititi beat out Ruben Fleischer for the spot.
What do you guys think? Are you feeling Waititi as the Thor: Ragnarok Director?
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November, 3rd, 2017.
