Now this time with another action-packed with much higher anticipation, though we have to wait for more than 1 year as there is still doubt about the film’s release.

On July 16, 2019, the Hollywood Reporter stated that a sequel to Thor: Ragnarok was in the developmental stage. During this time, Taika was working on the screenplay of Thor: Love and Thunder with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson.
After the confirmation of Chris Hemsworth, the film is expected to be on the floor from next Jan 2021. As it is expected that Thor: Love and Thunder are going to be bigger than the previous one, told by the 44-year-old director.
Thor: Love and Thunder: What is the story about?
Thor: Love and Thunder are still in the pre-production phase. So, the plot is not yet revealed but Natalie Portman who is preparing herself for the film revealed a little that the film is based on the comic book Mighty Thor. Taika Waititi also gave a little hint about the film when he was reading Mighty Thor during the shooting of Thor: Ragnarok. Its trailer also is in progress.
Thor: Love and Thunder: Who is the Cast?
There are small changes in the cast. We will get Christian Bale in the film. Thompson has revealed that Bale is going to play the antagonist in Thor: Love and Thunder. Vin Diesel is another actor who is going to be a part of this film somehow as it will be unfolded from time to time.

- Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Thor
- Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie/Brunnhilde
- Taika Waititi as Korg
- Christian Bale as the character name is not decided
- Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-lord
- Vin Diesel as Groot
Chris Hemsworth was so absorbed by the script that once he expressed his excitement about the script on social media. He also said that he had more fun reading the script than he had in Thor: Ragnarok.
Talking about Thor: Love and Thunder he said to an interviewer, “It’s one of the best scripts I’ve read in years. It’s Taika Waititi at his most extreme, and at his best.
If the version I read is the one we get running with, it’s going to be pretty insane.” He was asked if he would leave the franchise. His reply confirms that he is still inside it. This time also he is going to portray the character, Thor. It’s his ninth appearance in MCU.
Natalie is going to play the female Thor this time.
Chris Pratt will join the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, though in a cameo role. The two actors, Hemsworth and Pratt were seen in the movie, Avengers: Endgame. Their appearance was expected again in an upcoming film. So, it is. Audiences will be happy to get these stars again in the movie.
Tessa Thompson is confirmed for the role of Valkyrie/Brunnhilde. Talking about Thompson’s character Waititi told Variety in February 2020, “With the actors, I feel whatever makes them comfortable — whether they feel like there’s a natural choice or a natural way for that character to go — then I’m pretty supportive”, “If Tessa wanted to do that, I’m in.”
We will get Christian Bale in a negative role but his character is not revealed yet properly. Fans, somehow find possibilities with his character with Beta Ray Bill.
Taika is also going to be a part of this film as Korg.
We will get Vin Diesel as Groot as a voice-over actor. Most of the stars are in Australia for shooting purposes.
It is not clear if Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Jeff Goldblum, or Mark Ruffalo’s character will be in the film or not.
Thor: Love and thunder: A new female Thor: Jane
Here in Thor: Love and Thunder, the most interesting thing is we are getting a female Thor. In the San Diego Comic-Con event, director Taika Waititi expressed his interest in the story written by Jason Aaron. He said, “It’s full of emotion, love and thunder and, for the first time, female Thor.” Then we found Portman holding a hammer in her hand.
She told, “I can’t tell you that much. I’m really excited. I’m starting to train, to get muscles. If there can be all these female superheroes, the more of them there are, the better it is. I’m trying to think — it’s based on the graphic novel of The Mighty Thor. She’s going through cancer treatment and is a superhero on the side.”
Jane is going to be portrayed as a female Thor in this film for the first time. We didn’t get her in Thor: Ragnarok but In Thor: Love and Thunder, we will see Portman with the hammer. So interesting it will be, right?
As per her communication to the media, we get a little glimpse of her character in Thor: Love and Thunder where she is battling cancer on one side and a protector of Asgard on the other. Whenever she becomes Thor, she cancels her Chemo. That’s how she delves into more destruction.
There is a lot of speculation about the film. We still have to wait until it comes to the theatre. Whatever the storyline is, it is always interesting and enjoyable to watch Thor spinning his hammer, and this time, with another one. Let’s wait to see 2 Thors in the game. Until then, happy binge-watching! Stay safe!
