Thor 4: Love And Thunder confirmed its arrival at Comic-Con 2019. It marks a significant feat for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, who becomes the first Marvel superhero to have four solo movies.
But that is not the main reason that the fans should be excited. For Thor 4, Taika Waititi will be back. It will also bring back Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. Only this time as the female Thor.
Air Date: Thor Love and Thunder
Initially Thor: Love and Thunder was set for release on November 5, 2021.
The fourth Thor film then was moved up to February 18, 2022, and then there was some great news, and the release was preponed to February 11, 2022.
Waititi believes that the initial delay in the movie as a good thing as it gives him more time to work on the film.
Cast: Thor Love and Thunder
Chris Hemsworth will be returning as Thor and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster.
To be clear, she won’t be just another Jane, and she will be the female version of Thor.
It highlights Portman’s first ever MCU appearance after Thor: The Dark World back in 2013. Although there is footage of Jane in Avengers: Endgame, she only gave a new dialogue for the repurposed footage about The Dark World.
Tessa Thompson will be back as Valkyrie in her new role as the leader of New Asgard.
Thompson has also stated that Christian Bale will be the “villain” in the fourth movie. In comparison, Vin Diesel has announced that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be a part.
There is also a real reason to hope that the fourth movie may also bring the fan favourite Beta Ray Bill. Many believe that maybe Christian Bale will be playing the character, but no one has confirmed it this news.
Others who may be returning to the cast can include Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Mark Ruffalo as Professor Hulk. Still, the only other one that the viewers are confident about is that Waititi will be voicing the fan-favourite Korg.
Plot: Thor Love and Thunder
With an entry of female Thor in the MCU, Waititi revealed something. He is taking inspiration for the film from Marvel Comics series The Mighty Thor.
The film will also delve into fan favourite Korg’s background.
In a live-stream video to fans, Waititi and Thompson revealed more details about the script, of which they are “four or five” drafts into, including space sharks. Yep, space sharks!
However, complicating the matter is James Gunn’s announcement that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 takes place after Thor: Love and Thunder, bringing the question of when Thor left the Guardians for his adventure.
Trailer: Thor Love and Thunder
With the movie not out until 2022, likely, we won’t see any footage until Comic-Con 2021 at the earliest.
Until the release, make sure to keep a lookout for the recent updates and the trailer release. Till then, peace out Marvel family!
