Los Angeles, May 2, 2021: The next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and 4th film in the Thor franchise, "Thor: Love and Thunder" is on the verge of completing the shoot. Directed by Taika Waititi, the filming on Thor: Love and Thunder has been underway since late January in Australia.
The director said that the fourth film in the Thor franchise might be the best Marvel film ever. "Filming is going great. We've got four weeks left, I can see light at the end of the tunnel. It might be the best Marvel film ever!", Waititi told Weekend Today (via comicbook)
The movie stars Chris Hemsworth as a mighty superhero Thor, along with Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie. Natalie Portman, who last appeared in 2013's Thor: The Dark World before reprising her role in 2019's Endgame, is also returning to Love And Thunder as Jane Foster. The movie will also see Jaimie Alexander as Sif and Jeff Goldblum as Ragnarok's cosmic Grandmaster along with the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy.
On reuniting with Hemsworth, Waititi said, "He is a funny guy, he's a good friend and he's also someone that you just want to hang out with all the time. And I think that's all you really want from a superhero or a main character in your movie".
Produced by Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios, Thor: Love and Thunder is scheduled to be released in the United States on May 6, 2022, as part of Phase Four of the MCU.
