‘Thor 4’ Is Happening, Putting ‘Akira’ on Hold

 

 

 

The post-Endgame MCU is looking better and better with the recent announcement that Taika Waititi will return direct Thor 4 for Marvel Studios. The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report that the director will return to the MCU to write and direct the thunder god’s next adventure.

Unfortunately, this also means that Waititi’s adaptation of Akira will be put on hold. The live action adaptation of the popular anime was set to begin production soon, but rumors were circulating that issues with the script were delaying production.

Now, it looks like the project has been put on hold indefinitely until Waititi is done with the latest entry in the Thor franchise.

 

 

There is still no official announcement about the fourth Thor film from Marvel Studios or any other projects within the MCU (with the exception of a Black Widow) film, but with Comic-Con coming up, we should expect some more news on both films in the coming weeks.

Are you excited for Thor 4? Are you upset about the Akira adaptation?
