Thor: Love and Thunder Spoilers
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the fourth film would probably have an “Avengers 5 feel.” Chris has even termed it “one of the best scripts he’s read in years.”
In an interview, Taika Waititi told Entertainment Tonight: “If you take Ragnarok – which I feel was a very big, outlandish, bombastic film – we’re trying to double down on everything we did with that and create something that’s more crazy, more fun, and even more of a big, big adventure.”
He further added that the film “might be the best Marvel film ever.”
In another interview, Waititi teased that there may not be a fifth Thor film saying “I think this might be funnier,” he said. “Everything we did with Ragnarok, we’ve just multiplied it. Who knows if we do another one after this but I definitely feel like we put everything – every idea and every single ridiculous concept or gag or stunt or character – into this film.
I couldn’t be happier with it.” He then added the “craziest” thing he’s done to Wired, hinting: “What I wanted to do from the beginning was to ask: ‘What are people expecting the least from this franchise?’ Oh, I know – a full-blown love story!”
During an Instagram Live video, Waititi revealed that Korg will be in search of love in Thor: Love and Thunder, whilst Space Sharks will also be seen.
Another plot point will follow Valkyrie looking for someone to rule New Asgard with. In an interview with ET, Thompson said “She’s king. If she can’t find her queen, she’ll just be king and queen at the same time.”
Apart from that, Jane Foster’s return possibly indicates a few things. The first one, Thor, does not deserve to wield the hammer. Another probability is that she belongs to a multiverse.
There are some other things as well revealed by Merchandise regarding how she came to become a hero.
The description reads: “Suffering from cancer, astrophysicist and Thor’s ex-girlfriend, Jane Foster, visited New Asgard, and her life was changed forever,” adding “Mysteriously, the broken pieces of Mjolnir, the hammer of the thunder god, transformed her into the Mighty Thor and gifted her the superpowers of Thor, to battle threats internal and external. Wielding Mjolnir herself, she had become a godly protector and a new hero was born!”
“With the help of Thor, Valkyrie, and the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Mighty Thor was faced by the powerful Gorr, the God Butcher.
With divine powers himself, Gorr was driven to rid the universe of gods wherever he found them. Battling cancer in her human form and Gorr in her godly form, Jane Foster was embroiled in an epic struggle with plenty of love and thunder!”
