# Taika Waititi Confirms He Will Not Direct Thor 5
## The Marvel Journey Continues Without Waititi
Taika Waititi, the acclaimed director who brought a unique touch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Thor: Love and Thunder,” has made it clear that he will not be returning to helm a potential fifth Thor film. During a candid conversation with Business Insider, Waititi disclosed his decision to move on from the superhero franchise, putting to rest any speculation about his involvement in a future sequel.
## Waititi’s Future Projects
The versatile filmmaker is already looking ahead to a bustling schedule with an array of exciting projects. Among his highly-anticipated ventures is an installment within the Star Wars universe. Waititi confirmed, “It’s still being done. I’ve been writing it.” Additionally, he’s set to embark on adapting Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel “Klara and the Sun,” a project he alludes to being next in line.

## No Hard Feelings
Despite parting ways with the Thor series, Waititi bears no ill will against Marvel. Embracing an open-minded viewpoint on their partnership, he humorously remarked on their creative relationship, “We have an open relationship, and if they want to see other people, I’m happy. Still, I’d go back to bed with them one day.”
## The Idea of Directing Thor 5
In previous discussions about continuing the Thor saga, Waititi did express a willingness to return under one specific condition—it had to be “surprising and unexpected.” He imagines an innovative take on the narrative, straying from standard battle scenes, and playfully theorizes about creating “a 5 million dollar movie without any fight, just Thor on a road trip. Like Nebraska.”
## Reflecting on Thor: Love and Thunder
Reviewing “Thor: Love and Thunder,” it’s observed that the film pays homage to Thor’s journey of self-discovery, largely succeeding in its effort. Notably characterized as the MCU’s first foray into romantic comedy territory, it capitalizes on the chemistry of stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Tessa Thompson. However, while the central romance between Thor and Jane was effectively portrayed, the film didn’t quite hit the mark in terms of advancing the overarching storyline of the MCU.

The torch is passed, but the legacy of Waititi’s Thor endures.
