Meanwhile, director and writer Taika Waititi described the upcoming sequel this way:

“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.”

Thor: Love and Thunder movie will feature cast members Chris Hemsworth as Thor with Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie. It has also been previously announced that Natalie Portman will be returning to the franchise in her role as Jane Foster.
