"Thor: Ragnarok" director Taika Waititi is coming back to write and direct "Thor 4", according to reports by The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly.

The Hollywood Reporter said Waititi's return to the franchise would mean putting on hold the director's plan to do a live action film of the Japanese manga Akira. 

Chris Hemsworth is expected to return as the Asgardian god of thunder.

Waititi is credited for revitalizing the Thor franchise, even once comparing the Odinson to Jack Burton, the hero from the 1980’s movie "Big Trouble in Little China."
