Marvel hires Flight of the Conchords' Taika Waititi to direct Thor 3

Marvel has found its director for Thor 3 in the shape of Taika Waititi, best known for his work writing and directing Flight Of The Conchords and vampire spoof What We Do In The Shadows. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Waititi saw off competition from Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer, Goosebumps' Rob Letterman and We're The Millers director Rawson Marshall Thurber to win the gig and is now in final negotiations to take the director's chair. 

The third Thor movie is to be titled Thor: Ragnarok and is due for release in November of 2017. Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Jaime Alexander are all expected to return to reprise their roles in the new installment. 

You can watch an interview with Waititi and regular collaborator Jemaine Clement where they open up about What We Do In The Shadows below:
