Thor: Love and Thunder, will be the long-awaited new movie of Thor, the hammer god, which started filming in 2021 and which we will be able to see in early 2022. In this way, this film will become the fourth in the series, after the Thor: 2011 release, Thor: The Dark World 2013, and Thor: Ragnarok 2017.
The truth is, The Adventures of the Hammer God have become one of the most popular in the incredible Marvel Universe. So we’re happy to know that we can continue enjoying the Viking superhero in 2021.
The new film will be directed by New Zealand director Taika Waititi. Its name will sound familiar to you because in 2019 it won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for the movie Jojo Rabbit (if you haven’t seen it yet, we recommend it). He himself plays the role of Adolf Hitler in the award-winning film.
The New Zealander already has experience making superhero films: Avengers: Endgame or Thor: Ragnarok also exist, in part, thanks to Waititi.
What will the new Thor movie be about?
In this case, the new Thor movie will again use the Hammer God comics as a benchmark. This is why Jane Foster will appear, who used the hammer of the god and therefore ended up becoming the Goddess of Thunder.
It’s a bit disappointing that for one of the few times we have a superheroine with a lead role, the film’s title uses the word “love,” a theme always attributed to women.
However, we’ll wait until we see the film to judge. Maybe Thor: Love and Thunder will surprise us.
In contrast, leaked footage from the set of the new film, released by the Daily Mail, shows us actors Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Pratt, who played Star Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy saga.
This is where we wanted to save one of the scenes from the end of the Endgame movie, where the two characters appear together. Thor grants his position as protector of Asgard to Valkyrie so that he can travel through space with Star Lord and his team. We believe this scene may be important in understanding the plot of the movie Thor: Love and Thunder.
You can also consider the Marvel series and movies available on Disney Plus.
When will Thor: Love and Thunder be released?
Filming for the film began in 2021. As we noted in the interior section, footage from this same shoot has already been leaked, as you can see below.
The fact that the film has started filming this year means we’ll have to wait almost another year to see Thor: Love and Thunder.
The official date that the new episode of Thor hits theaters is February 2, 2022.
In the meantime, if you want to catch up with the Marvel Universe, we’ve got you covered on how to watch Marvel series and movies in chronological order.
Who will play in Thor: Love and Thunder?
We have already confirmed two of the actors, as expected Chris Hemsworth will return to play the legendary Thor as he has since the first superhero movie in 2011. Actor Chris Patt will also appear in Star Lord.
Actress Tessa Thompson will reprise the Valkyrie as in Thor’s first film. Iconic actress Natalie Portman will return to the Marvel Universe as Jane Foster and as the Goddess of Thunder.
The other actors and actresses who could appear in the film are: Christian Bale, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista or Matt Damon.
