    Despite mixed reviews from critics Thor: Love and Thunder has out-grossed Thor: Ragnorok in its opening weekend.

    At the end of the fourth installment of the Thor franchise, we seeThe God of Thunder being a surrogate father to Gorr's daughter.

    The post-credit scenes also tell us who Thor would face off against next, Hercules .

    Director Taika Waititi was asked if he would be directing the God of Thunder's next adventure and he said that he would love to as long as Chris Hemsworth would reprise his role.

    Thor: Love and Thunder has grossed 144 million from the North American box office and a total of 302 million worldwide in its opening weekend.

    While we do know who Thor will face off against next, it remains to be seen when that will happen.

    The move currently has a 67% rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes but the audience rating stands at 81% and considering the current box-office reception, it would not be surprising if Waititi would direct the next installment.

    Thor facing off against Hercules, who is one of his biggest rivals in the comics would be a treat to fans and Waititi could do a great job of pulling that off.

    When asked recently about returning to directing the next installment, Waititi answered

    “Now, I don’t know what would be next. I would definitely do one, but only if Chris did it, But it would need to be something surprising and unexpected for me to want to do it. Like what would be the new take? The battles and all the fighting is fine, but I would want something that feels unexpected when it comes to the story. Like making just a $5 million movie with no fighting at all, just Thor on a road trip. Like ‘Nebraska.'”

    It will be interesting to see how and when we will see the God of Thunder next time in The MCU

    Thor: Love and Thunder is currently running in theaters.
