Thor: Love And Thunder has been giving the release date of 6th May 2022. Filming has finished and Chris Hemsworth shared the news on his Instagram.
The movie has had push back after push back. Originally it was due out at the end of the MCU Phase 4, in Nov 2021. Then it was pushed back to Feb 2022, then March and now set for May 2022.
A lot of the original cast will be returning, Chris Hemsworth, obviously, Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman all return, as does director Taika Waititi as Korg. Russell Crowe and Christian Bale join the fun.
At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Thor joined the crew with the Guardians of the Galaxy. In Thor: Love And Thunder Chris Pratt and the rest of the crew will appear, but it is unclear how much. It is going to be odd since there’s also a Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 on the way, I wonder how much Thor will be in that movie? Knowing Kevin Feige, I’m sure he has got a plan and it will be well done.
Vin Diesel may have also confirmed that Groot will be branching out and turning up in Thor: Love and Thunder.
“[Taika Waititi] talked to me about how Thor will incorporate some of the Guardians of the Galaxy, which will be very interesting. Nobody knows, but maybe I shouldn’t have said anything.”
It’s also been reported that Jeff Goldblum has been seen hanging around with Waititi and Hemsworth, but no reports on if he is going to be in the movie.
There is some bad news. Not everyone is a fan of Waititi’s humor in the movies, and Melissa McCarthy has been cast. Maybe two wrongs will make a right?
There have been reports about what the story will cover, but they are firmly in spoiler territory so I’m not going to share them. I liked Thor: Ragnarock and am looking forward to the new one.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be out on 6th May 2022.
