Taika Waititi Won't Direct GOTG VOL. 3, But Is Still In Contact With Marvel About Another Potential Project

Well, if you were hoping to see Taika Waititi take over the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise from James Gunn you're sure to be disappointed by the Thor: Ragnarok director's recent comments. Take a look...

Despite being a fan-favorite pick to take the helm of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in the wake of James Gunn's firing, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi has now confirmed that he has no interest in the gig.

"Nope. No, not doing that movie," Waititi told reporters during the Television Critics Association winter press tour, where he was promoting FX's What We Do in the Shadows spin-off. "For me, that’s James’ film... Going into something like that, which has got his stamp all over it, would feel like going into someone’s house and going, 'Hey, I’m your new dad...' It feels kind of awkward."

There's no doubt that Waititi would have been an interesting choice to continue the adventures of Star-Lord and his team of intergalactic A-holes, but, honestly, his stance really isn't that surprising. That doesn't mean he has no interest in directing another movie for Marvel Studios, however.

Waititi revealed that he is still "hanging out" with Marvel and "talking about new stuff, but I don’t know what that might be yet. But I want to do another movie with them."

Are there any Marvel projects currently in the pipeline that you'd like to see Waititi direct? Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments down below.
