What to Expect from the Future of The MCU and When to Expect It
February 11, 2022: THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER
Taika Waititi returns to the Thor franchise promising to double up on the craziness that made Thor: Ragnarok so rewatchable and to make something even MORE “bombastic” than its predecessor. While the film is certain to pick up where Avengers: Endgame left off, it’s also going to take direction from Jason Aaron’s long-lasting and acclaimed run on the comic and see Jane Foster pick up Mjolnir and take up the mantle of Thor!
In January of 2020, it was revealed that Christian Bale had entered into negotiations to play a key role in the film. Thor: Love and Thunder was set to take place in Australia beginning in August of 2020. but with Shang-Chi delayed due to COVID-19, the start date has been pushed back. Jennifer Kaytin Robinson was brought in to work on the script which Waititi described as a rom-com.
