The film is directed by Taika Waititi and the screenplay of Thor: Love and Thunder is written by Jennifer Kaylin Robinson. The shooting work of the film had just begun in January 2021, though it was earlier scheduled to August 2020 due to the pandemic restriction, the schedules of the shooting of this film too way postponed. It seems now the shooting of Thor: Love and Thunder, may not be towards its last ending phase because some pictures from the shooting venue revealed, and also the movie is releasing in May 2022, so it would require some time for the team to wrap up the post-shooting works.

So, starting off with the leading man is Chris Hemsworth as Thor, who needs no introduction in fact but to still adding a glimpse that is an Avenger who in fact was the king of Asgard, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/ Mighty Thor, who is an astrophysicist and more importantly, she is Thor’s ex-girlfriend and she is the new addition to this film, Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie who is now The king of Asgard, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, who is the half-human and half celestial leader in all an interesting character in this film, Dave Bautista as Drax The Destroyer, members of the highly skilled group that is Guardians, Jamie Alexander as Sif, who is Thor’s childhood friend, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, who too is also the member of the Guardians, Sean Gunn as Kraglin Obfonteri and Karen Gillan as Nebula as an orphan from an alien place.
Also what excites us more is Hemsworth’s comment that he says that he is going on retirement phase because for him Thor is quite young though it seems for him 1500 years is quite a small figure and this comment certainly means something new outlook in the upcoming film.
