‘Mad Max’ Director George Miller Reveals If He’d Helm ‘Thor 5’

Thor goes full Mad Max!

Could George Miller be joining the MCU? The Mad Max director speaks on potentially reuniting with Chris Hemsworth to work on Thor 5.

Following the abject failure of Thor: Love and Thunder, all signs point to Taika Waititi being out for Thor 5. However, with Chris Hemsworth wanting at least one final sequel, fans have been wondering who the MCU will get as the director. Dozens of names have been thrown out, from Gareth Edwards, to Sam Hargrave, and even the potential return of Keneth Branagh.

However, following Chris Hemsworth’s debut as Dr. Dementus in Furiosa, fans have become convinced that George Miller would be the perfect fit to helm Thor 5. The bombastic nature of his Mad Max franchise combined with Hemsworth’s charisma would truly make the project one of the best in the MCU. Luckily for fans, it seems as though Miller is open to the prospect.

George Miller Speaks On Directing Thor 5

During the press tour in the lead-up to Furiosa, George Miller was asked if he’d ever consider joining the MCU to direct Thor 5. Despite the director being mostly a lone wolf with his Mad Max franchise, Miller was surprisingly open to the idea. According to him, he’d follow Chris Hemsworth to any project he wanted.

“I would work with Chris [Hemsworth] on anything,” Miller told ComicBook.com. “I really would. He’s a wonderful actor. He’s got the full range of all the skills. I mean, you’ve got to be athletic, physically.”

“But, you also gotta be athletic emotionally and intellectually to take on these very, ultimately fairly complex, any role really. So, I was very lucky with all my cast and particularly in the way that Anya [Taylor-Joy] and Chris matched each other. Particularly towards the end of the month.”

Seeing George Miller take to the cosmos in Thor 5 would certainly be a sight to see. While it’ll likely be a while before a proper sequel gets off the ground in the MCU, Chris Hemsworth’s dedication to getting it right might mean fantastic things for the end of his character. Fans just need to hope Miller channels more Mad Max than Happy Feet!
