Kiwi filmmaker Taika Waititi has taken to social media to air his personal concerns about the election of Donald Trump as US president.

The Boy writer and director's first post-election tweet was to Marvel Entertainment, asking them if he was still expected to complete their Thor sequel in Los Angeles and expressing concerns his skin colour might stop him entering the US.

Waititi has likened the election result to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and suggested it'll usher in the collapse of civilisation.

"Welcome to 1933, America! Get ready for Cormac McCarthy's The Road coming true," he tweeted.

Waititi also rewteeted a message from fellow New Zealand filmmaker David Farrier, who expressed happiness at simply being able to leave the US and return to his home country.

The Hunt for the Wilderpeople filmmaker, however, had stern words for Americans wishing to emigrate south after Hillary Clinton's defeat.

Finally, Waititi mocked a media report labelling his tweets a "tantrum".

He also bemoaned the low voter turnout and cheerfully claimed Kanye West has a genuine chance in the 2020 US presidential election.

Waititi is a comedian known for his deadpan humour, but there appears to be some seriousness to his comments.

Meanwhile, Thor: Ragnarok is still set for release in October 2017.
