Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi says that the fourth film in the franchise is “the craziest thing” he’s ever done.
Taika Waititi had been an indie darling for quite some time until Kevin Feige scooped him up and gave him the keys to Thor’s Kingdom, letting him run wild and practically reinvent the character. After Thor: Ragnarok was a smashing success, Waititi and Chris Hemsworth have returned for Thor: Love and Thunder, which just wrapped up filming. And thanks to a behind-the-scenes photo by the director, we now know that the fourth film in the Thor franchise is the craziest thing Taika Waititi has done.
In the picturesque black and white photo posted by the director to Instagram, we see Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth standing beside each other. Hemsworth shared the same photo earlier, however, his caption doesn’t have the same amount of wit that Waititi’s does. Waititi has a mo-cap suit on his for his fan-favorite character Korg, while Hemsworth is seen sporting a tank top, rocking a Blue Steel look. In the caption, the Love and Thunder director discussed how much of a pleasure it was to return to the franchise, and how he a nervous breakdown helming the film. He also touched upon how great it is that he and Hemsworth get to create movies that everyone gets to enjoy and love. How’s that for humble and hilarious?
