Thor: Love and Thunder – Plot
Jane Foster has now become Mighty Thor. This means she can help Thor in fighting against Gorr. The events that have happened in Avengers: Endgame, have obviously taken a toll on mental health of Thor. He is desperately trying to seek inner peace. With his closest friends gone, such as the Iron Man and Natasha, he surely needs some time off in retirement. Well, Gorr has other plans and thus, the Gods need him. In this movie, we are to see amazing graphics all in 3D.
Shortly after the release of Thor: Ragnarok, Taika, and Chris started plotting for a sequel in 2018. We saw that Jane Foster was not included in Ragnarok, thus Waititi wanted the next installment to have elements of love as well. This is why Natalie Portman is set to return. In one of his interviews, Taika described that he wanted to make a film that has romance just like the ‘80s but also contains adventure.
Mighty Thor, a comic by Jason Arson, adapts to his ideologies pretty well. In its story, we see that Jane Foster has taken the mantle from Thor. She is also fighting against their evil with him. All this while, her life is at risk because of cancer. Some key updates about this new project include the inclusion of Guardians of the Galaxy.
Thor: Love and Thunder – Filming Locations
Thor: Love and Thunder were principally shot in Sydney, Australia. The crew and cast started working at Fox Studios in Australia. Their working title was The Big Salad. During some time off, that the production needed because of the COVID pandemic, we saw Taika exploring other projects. He directed a few episodes of The Mandalorian. Taika Waititi is an excellent director. He employed the usage of Dynamiclight technology for his work which he has previously used in Ragnarok. It is a combination of high-quality lights that can be accessed with a single click. During the post-production phase, the director can decide easily what kind of light suits the scene best.
