Thor: Ragnarok was a massive hit with fans critics. Directed by Taika Waititi, Ragnarok is by far the most successful of the Thor movies. While Chris Hemsworth's Thor did very well went put in the group setting of the Avengers, but his stand-alone films up until 2018 were decidedly lackluster. Bringing in some new blood like Waititi seemed to be a good idea. After the incredible success of Thor: Ragnarok, it seemed like a great idea to bring Waititi back to direct the fourth Thor movie Thor: Love and Thunder.
