Despite Taika Waititi shifting his focus back to Thor with Chris Hemsworth, Warner Bros. reportedly still wants to move forward on his Akira movie after he completes Thor 4Akira has been in development since Warner Bros. first acquired the option to produce a live-action remake of the property back in 2002.

As for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, the actor previously revealed he would very much be interested in joining James Gunn’s next Guardians of the Galaxy movie. The end of Avengers: Endgame saw Thor seemingly paired up with the Guardians for their next adventure, something that spawned the theory that the film would take its name after the Asgardians of the Galaxy comic series. Gunn has since confirmed that this will not be the case for the highly anticipated third installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.

Chris Hemsworth can currently be seen as Thor in Avengers: Endgame. Here’s the official synopsis for that movie:
