According to The Wrap, Taika Waititi is in final negotiations to direct the third Thor film, Thor: Ragnarok

It's being reported that Waititi beat out Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) for the job. A representative for Marvel has yet to confirm this breaking news.

Thor: Ragnarok is being produced by Marvel's Kevin Feige and will, of course, star Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) in the role of Thor and he'll be joined by Tom Hiddleston (Midnight in Paris, Crimson Peak), Natalie Portman (Black Swan, Jane Got a Gun) and Jamie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World, Blindspot) who all reprise their roles from prior films. 

Disney will release Thor: Ragnarok on July 28, 2017.
