After the brilliant ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, Taika Waititi prepares the shocking return of the marvelite god of the hammer, ready for the Norse ruckus?
We were all caught off guard by the surprising revelation that took place at San Diego Comic-Con 2019. Marvel is always ready to surprise and, after ‘ Avengers: Endgame ‘, a film that has taken the headlines in recent years (both before and after the premiere), from the studio they had a very important challenge: to announce something that promised a future and would make us forget what we had seen so far.
And, as always, they’ve done it again, thanks mostly to a great reveal: Natalie Portman’s return to the MCU, and in the most mind-blowing way possible. Taika Waititi advises:

And Chris Hemsworth supports it, stating that we will find a real movie madness:
But what is the release date of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’? And the synopsis? What comic will the movie be based on? And, most importantly, will we see Fat Thor or will he have his abs back?
'Thor 4' Release Date
The new installment of the God of Thunder, ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, already has a confirmed release date, and we will have to wait a bit yet since the Marvel calendar is quite complete. The release date of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is May 6, 2022.
Initially, it was going to be November 5, 2021, but due to the Coronavirus crisis, Marvel has moved its entire premiere schedule and has left the November date free for the premiere of ‘ Eternals ‘.
'Thor 4' Synopsis
Although the official synopsis of the film is not yet known, we do know something: it will be based on the comic series of ‘The Mighty Thor ‘ created by Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman. In this comic series, we discover that Jane Foster, Thor’s love interest, has cancer, and the only way to be cured is through Thor’s hammer, known as mjölnir.
Thus, Jane Foster becomes the Goddess of Thunder and replaces Thor since he is no longer considered worthy of continuing to carry the hammer. The director himself, Taika Waititi, has confirmed that he is taking inspiration from that comic series for his film.
What we don’t know is where Thor will be at that time. At the end of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, Thor joins the Guardians of the Galaxy, so everything is possible, even that his participation in the film is with a more secondary role. Meanwhile, Valkyrie, whom we saw for the last time as the queen of New Asgard, will finally be openly bisexual (becoming the first character of the LGTBI collective in a Marvel movie) and will be actively looking for a queen to accompany her.
‘Thor 4’ Cast
In ‘ Thor: Love and Thunder ‘ will be present, of course, the God of Thunder Chris Hemsworth himself although, with his character tied to the Guardians of the Galaxy, we are still not very clear what the weight of Thor will be in this new installment ( We talk about weight in the plot, not if Thor Gordo will follow or not ).
Tessa Thompson also returns as Valkyrie, gaining prominence. And the craziest, surreal and unexpected comeback is that of Natalie Portman, playing Jane Foster. The famous actress participated in the first two installments of ‘Thor’ but decided to leave Marvel since she does not feel comfortable in films with such a budget and so much green screen. But apparently, he has thought about it again, and Marvel has taken the opportunity to bring it back to us.
It will also feature Christian Bale as the film’s main villain. Gorr, the butcher of the gods, is a guy disappointed with the divinities willing to lay waste to Asgard, whatever is currently left of the once-powerful kingdom.
Russell Crowe, who is an oversight revealed that he will play Zeus, has also been one of the new additions to the cast that will also feature the return of Jaimie Alexander as Sif.
Among the Guardians, it seems certain that we will see at least Star-Lord ( Chris Pratt ), Nebula ( Karen Gillan ), and Kraglin ( Sean Gunn ).
‘Thor 4’ Director
The New Zealand director Taika Waititi will repeat as director (and screenwriter) of ‘ Thor: Love and Thunder ‘, after the applause of critics and public that took ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, one of the favorite films of Marvel fans, which got give a new air to the character and, why not, to the entire MCU.
‘Thor 4’ Comic
Since we know that Natalie Portman aka Jane Foster will wield Thor’s hammer in this new installment, the movie is most likely based on the ‘The mighty Thor’ comics.
