Taika Waititi’s “Thor 4” — is Chris Hemsworth’s “Avengers: Endgame” fate sealed?

It looks like Taika Waititi's Thor 4 has already been pitched.

Thor 4 has been pitched and there's no one better suited to tackle it than Taika Waititi. The director helmed the previous instalment - Thor: Ragnarok - in 2017 and it's since been heralded as one of the very best films across the entire MCU. Waititi established a completely different approach, departing from the dull directness of the two previous entries and making the third as bonkers and humorous as possible. Finally, Thor fans had been given a worthy solo-film, and it would be such a shame for it to stop there. 

As reported by ScreenRant, Thor: Ragnarok's Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) has announced that a fourth instalment in the Thor series has already been pitched with Waititi at the helm. Although it hasn't exactly been confirmed, the last film was such a significant hit that it's hard to envision Marvel Studios closing the book on such potential. Ever since Waititi's Marvel contribution left cinemas, fans have been anticipating another entry. But of course, nothing can be confirmed until Avengers: Endgame reveals the death toll... 

Last year, Avengers: Infinity War shocked Marvel fans across the globe with its dooming conclusion. The wait has been long, but fortunately, it's almost over; Endgame will arrive April 25. With the daily countdown now in the single digits, excitement has reached an all-time high, but this has also resulted in some potential spoilers.

Recently, the Russo brothers have had to issue a statement on Twitter to encourage those who have seen any leaked footage to keep it to themselves. It's predicted to be the biggest film release of all time, so it's frustrating that some would want to spoil it. 

If you haven't seen the leaked footage, it's advised to avoid it and continue with speculation. For the last year, we've been obsessed with predicting which heroes will fall in the fourth Avengers outing. Speculation is all harmless fun and has actually helped raise anticipation for the film enormously, so it's best to avoid the spoilers and sustain the mystery. Considering Thompson's announcement though, it's hard to imagine Thor being taken away from us, although we never really expected that he'd be one to fall.

Infinity War teased him as the potential saviour, and since, trailers have spotlighted his sheer determination to defeat Thanos. Honestly, Thanos could fall by Thor's hand, prey to a fell blow from the God's hammer. 

In other news, John Cena could be a benefit to James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.
