Because of the incredible success of Thor: Ragnarok back in 2017, Marvel fans have been wondering if director Taika Waititi and actor Chris Hemsworth would ever return for another film. In 2019, Kevin Feige announced at Comic-Con that Thor Love And Thunder would in fact happen with Waititi, Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie all returning for the sequel. Additionally, he also announced that Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster would also return.

The Thor franchise has seen its ups and downs.  Director Taika Waititi, however, was able to breathe uniqueness and life back into the franchise with his mega-hit Thor: Ragnarok. Because of Ragnarok‘s massive success, Marvel Studios has brought Waititi back to helm Thor: Love and Thunder. With that, here’s everything we know about the movie.

Christian Bale will portray Gorr, The God Butcher

In 2020, Kevin Feige confirmed that Christian Bale will play the main villain of the film Gorr, The God Butcher. It is believed that Bale’s performance will have very little CGI, unlike many of the cosmic villains in the MCU. Gorr is likely to be a fully prosthetic character. Additionally, Gorr from the comics is an ancient being, so either he will be an updated version for the movie or Thor: Love and Thunder will explore time travel. It has been rumored that Gorr will kill many named characters in the movie just like Hela did in Ragnarok.

Thor will likely become unworthy in Thor 4

In the comics, Jane Foster is only able to wield because Thor loses the ability to wield it himself. Nick Fury whispered something in his ear which caused Thor to drop the hammer. Gorr, The God Butcher also has a history of manipulating Thor’s faith and emotions. So Gorr may be what causes Thor to lose his worthiness. This is all purely speculation, but Waititi has clearly stated that he has taken inspiration from Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor storyline. The only way Foster can wield Mjolnir is if Thor drops it.

Will Korg and Miek return in Thor: Love and Thunder?

Fan favorites Korg and Miek are both confirmed to come back for Thor: Love and Thunder. Waititi stated that the beloved duo would be back for more shenanigans. Korg and Miek were last seen with the Avengers battling Thanos at the end of Avengers: Endgame. They both presumably survived the battle. It is not known how large of a role they will play, but if Ragnarok is of any indication, we should get a good share of fun moments with them.

The Thor franchise has seen its ups and downs. The first Thor was generally loved by audiences and critics while the sequel Thor: The Dark World is considered to be among the weakest of MCU outings. Director Taika Waititi, however, was able to breathe uniqueness and life back into the franchise with his mega-hit Thor: Ragnarok. Because of Ragnarok‘s massive success, Marvel Studios has brought Waititi back to helm Thor: Love and Thunder. With that, here’s everything we know about the movie.
