It was said that the studio was eyeing Edwards to helm the fifth installment of the Thor franchise. After the disappointing reception of fans and critics towards Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder, the upcoming film might need a little change in tone and direction.

Gareth Edwards Won’t Direct Thor 5 To Focus On His Science Fiction Projects

Gareth Edwards spoke with BroBible’s Post Credit Podcast and responded to the rumors of his attachment to Marvel Studios’ Thor 5. He admitted being aware of these speculations:
I saw those rumors too. I saw it, and I jokingly sent it to my girlfriend. I just texted her the link and said, ‘I didn’t want you to find out this way.’ I’ve never heard anything about it. It’s totally… the internet is an incredible place.”

Edwards confessed he is a huge fan of MCU films, though he wanted to focus more on his own projects, especially since he has found a great opportunity to improve his craft. He further added:


I love those movies. I love Marvel, a lot of my friends work on Marvel films. I’m very excited about the future of cinema, personally. I feel like everything we did differently on The Creator is probably the strongest part of the film. And I just want to push that even further, so having the freedom and being able to take risks, being allowed to fail. I think that’s all an important part of any creativity.”
Finally, the director announced that he would devote his time and attention to making science fiction movies. Thankfully, he keeps his door ajar for the possibility of working in a Marvel movie.
And so, I’m very excited about having another go at my own film. I love all the other movies and franchises, I go to see them. I have most of them on my DVD/Blu-ray shelf. But I really want to keep pursuing original sci-fi. Was that a very politically correct answer? I never say never. In the right circumstances, absolutely.”
The recent years have been very challenging for Marvel Studios, so it is definitely high time to find a filmmaker who would set the course in the right direction.

Chris Hemsworth Wants Thor To Have A Fitting Finale

Chris Hemsworth confessed in an interview with Vanity Fair that he’s done portraying goofy Thor. The actor hopes to return to the character to give it a fitting closure, which would definitely require a serious storyline.
I’m completely open to it if there is something unique and fresh and unexpected to do with the character and the world. I’ve always loved the experience. I’ve been very thankful I’ve been able to do something different each time.”
Gareth Edwards may not be working with Hemsworth in Thor 5 for the time being, but fans hope that he will eventually consider helming a Marvel film in the future.
