Mumbai, Jun 29 (PTI) Humour is an important tool to address critical issues in his films, says director Taika Waititi, who has combined the serious with the funny to show what a superhero undergoing "midlife crisis" looks like in the upcoming Marvel movie "Thor: Love and Thunder".

The New Zealand-born director, known for films such as “Boy”, “What We Do in the Shadows”, “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” and “Jojo Rabbit”, is known for his irreverent and fun approach to filmmaking.

Waititi said humour often helps him in putting the audience at ease.
