Ryan Gosling Spotted Having Lunch With THOR 4 Director Taika Waititi - Could He Be MCU Bound?

Ryan Gosling Spotted Having Lunch With THOR 4 Director Taika Waititi - Could He Be MCU Bound?

It's speculation time! Actor Ryan Gosling was photographed having lunch with Taika Waititi in LA on Friday, which has led to the assumption that he might be in line for a role in Thor: Love and Thunder.

Could Ryan Gosling be MCU bound?

The Blade Runner 2049 actor was spotted having lunch with Taika Waititi yesterday afternoon in LA, leading to speculation that the director may have offered him a role in Thor: Love and Thunder.

While the meeting was most likely movie-related, the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel is not the only project Waititi has in the works. He's also preparing to shoot sports movie Next Goal Wins for Fox Searchlight, and there's always a slim chance the pair could be discussing Warner Bros.' live-action Akira movie - although we recently found out that's been put on hold for the time being, and we already know the studio was looking for a mostly teenage cast.

So, this might be a bit of a reach, but there's no harm in a bit of harmless speculation of a Saturday!

Assuming Gosling is in line for a part in Thor 4, which character do you think he could be set to play? The God of Thunder's half-brother Balder, perhaps? How about the villainous Gorr? Drop us a comment in the usual place.
