The COVID-19 pandemic has had quite an impact on the entertainment industry. Not only has the novel coronavirus outbreak forced cinemas to shut down and delay the release of major blockbuster movies like Mulan, Black Widow, and Wonder Woman 1984, but it's also forced studios to put a halt to the production of highly-anticipated film and television projects.

Now, nearly five months after the novel coronavirus began ravaging the planet, governments have begun to slowly reopen, allowing studios to continue work on their movies and television series. One of those back at work is Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.

Posting on Instagram, Waititi shared a photo of himself back on the set of his upcoming film, Next Goal Wins. Starring X-Men: First Class and Prometheus actor Michael Fassbender, the movie Next Goal Wins is an upcoming sports comedy movie based on a 2014 documentary of the same name.

The Marvel director seems pretty relaxed in his photos napping while at production, but we're sure the director's been working hard behind the camera.


There's a lot of excitement over Waititi's upcoming projects. Not only is the Marvel director taking on a fourth Thor movie that will see the appearance of Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) as the Mighty Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder, but he's also set to direct a brand new Star Wars movie for Lucasfilm.

There's certainly a lot going for the director, which isn't a surprise seeing how successful Thor: Ragnarok has been.

Thor: Ragnarok is available for streaming on Disney+.
