George Miller Reveals One Marvel Studios’ Project He’d Be Willing to Direct

Director George Miller is one of Hollywood’s true icons. His Mad Mad trilogy stands as exemplar in the world of dystopian visions and he’s not done yet. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is expected to rock the box office this Memorial Day weekend and another installment in the franchise, Mad Max: The Wasteland, is already in production. There’s more to Miller than just the Mad Max franchise, of course; after all, this is the man who directed Happy Feet and Happy Feet Two, as you know. However, due to a twist of fate, Miller has yet to tackle a superhero film despite being attached to helm Justice League: Mortal before the project fell apart. While it seemed like Miller’s time to tackle something in the genre may have passed, the director recently revealed there is one project that he’d consider directing.

In an interview with Comic Book, Miller revealed that he would be interested in working with Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga star Chris Hemsworth on Thor 5.

I would work with Chris on anything. I really would. He’s a wonderful actor. He’s got the full range of all the skills,” said Miller when asked if he would be interested in helming Hemsworth‘s next Thor film. “I mean, you’ve got to be athletic, physically. But, you also gotta be athletic emotionally and intellectually to take on these very, ultimately fairly complex, any role really,” he continued. “So, I was very lucky with all my cast and particularly in the way that Anya [Taylor-Joy] and Chris matched each other. Particularly towards the end of the month.

The timing of Miller’s comments could not be more perfect as Hemsworth recently revealed he’d like to return for another Thor film as long as Marvel Studios was willing to move away from the sillier tones of Thor: Love and Thunder. And with Disney big shot Bob Iger‘s mandate to have Marvel Studios look back at existing franchises that have delivered in the past–especially Avengers and Avengers-related one–Thor 5 does seem likely and it’s highly unlikely that Taika Waititi would return to direct. That means Miller may just get his crack at a superhero movie sooner rather than later.
