With zero release in 2020, Marvel Studios has made this year a little better by treating us with shows like WandaVision and The Flacon and the Winter Soldier. With theaters being shut and movies delayed because of the pandemic, the phase 4 timeline has been severely disrupted. The good news however is, that many halted MCU projects have started to gear up their production. In about a year from now, the Norse God of Thunder will make a comeback to the silver screen and Taika Waititi has something to say about it.
Chris Hemsworth‘s fourth solo film, Thor: Love and Thunder is about to finish the shoot in 4 weeks. With a jam-packed starry cast, the movie has already set the expectation bar way up high. Director Taika Waititi who also plays the character Korg is doing his second film with Marvel Studios and claims “this might be the best marvel film” in a recent interview.
Talking about the shoot he says – “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!”
Taika Waititi seems to be all praise for the lead actor Chris Hemsworth as he told Daily Mail– “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.”
The movie will see Natalie Portman making a comeback as Jane Foster and Tessa Thompson returning as Valkyrie who was earlier bestowed with the throne of Asguard following the events of Avengers: Endgame. What we are more than excited to see is the new recruit of MCU, Christian Bale playing the antagonist, Gorr the God Butcher. Bale will be seen fighting almost a dozen superheroes in this intergalactic adventure.
The cast confirmed so far includes Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Jeff Goldblum as Ragnarok‘s cosmic Grandmaster and the team of Guardians of the Galaxy — Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon
We can expect a cameo from actors such as Matt Damon, Sam Neill, Melissa McCarthy, Russell Crowe, and Luke Hemsworth.
Though the shooting is close to an end, the editing, VFX, and post-production of the movie will still take a few months before the fans can expect a final rendered picture or a teaser from the movie. Thor 4: Love and Thunder is set to release on 6th May 2022
