Our little birds got us the news that Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord would be joining Marvel Studios’ fourth instalment of Thor film, Thor: Love and Thunder.
RETURN OF THE LEGENDS
The news isn’t much of a revelation as Groot voice actor Vin Diesel dropped a hint in June that the Guardians of the Galaxy would be convoluted in Love and Thunder in some amplitude. Vin Diesel recently arrived in Australia where the film will be shot in the next approaching weeks.
Also, the crossover is lucid as Thor was last seen en route Star-Lord’s spaceship in the closing scenes of Avengers: Endgame. So Chris Pratt’s association in Thor: Love and Thunder should not come as a total shock.
ALL ABOUT THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER
Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, finds his kingship being in threat by the God of Thunder. They plan to escapade in new dominions in space. Thor has so far become friends with Groot and Rocket Racoon. As this film is said to take place right after Endgame, the connivance of Star-Lord, Groot and other Guardians of the Galaxy are contemplated.
Thor: Love and Thunder cast involve Natalie Portman as she will reprise as Jane Foster in the MCU. She was earlier seen in Thor and its sequel, playing the lover of Hemsworth’s character. She will lift Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, in the upcoming film. She will be the female epitome of Thor in the MCU, same as in the comics. The film also marks Tessa Thompson’s return as Valkyrie. She was last seen as the chaperone of Asgard and as its New Ruler. Christain Bale will make his debut in the MCU with “Love and Thunder”. He is said to play a cynical role which could turn out to be as pre-eminent as Thanos. However, no authentication is made yet on which Marvel Comics’ character will Bale portray.
Taika Waititi will direct Thor: Love and Thunder, and will also play Korg. Waititi and Jennifer Kaytin Robinson will co-write the script. More plot details are under a hush-hush situation. Thor: Love and Thunder is planned to release in cinemas on February 11, 2022.
