Oscar-nominated director Taika Waititi is in negotiations to helm Thor: Ragnarok, reports Deadline. If the deal is made, the New Zealand filmmaker would work from a script by Thor: The Dark World writers Chris Yost and Craig Kyle.
Waititi is known for his quirky comedies such as Eagle Vs. Shark and What We Do In The Shadows. Coincidentally, Thor: Ragnarok would not be the first foray into superhero films for Waititi, as he played played Tom Kalmaku in 2011's Green Lantern.
Thor: Ragnarok is set for a November 3, 2017 release.
